Company of the Six Seas
- Velik is Vestenmannavnjar, yet very hospitable to outsiders.
- He is close friends with Bjorn Brand, a Vendel prisoner on the island. They are considered the most unlikely of allies.
- Rumor: There is a rumor afloat that he is not originally from the Norse islands, which is a mystery to everyone. How would a civilized and diplomatic man like Velik come to find himself embraced by such a bloodied people of the old ways? And why would he trade away the privileges of the world for a dying culture?
