White Estrid rules as the current king (the term is used for both genders in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings) of the Ironbound Islands from her capital city of Halgrim. An albino with white hair and pale blue eyes, she is a fierce warrior known for conducting daring raids.


White Estrid gained much notoriety and renown in 4704 AR when she led a daring raid of 15 longships on the Nidalese port of Nisroch,1 then broke a Chelaxian blockade at the Arch of Aroden and triumphantly pulled into port at Absalom to sell her treasure.23 While in Absalom, she led her crew and her cousin Runewulf in gladitorial competitions at the Irorium, where they won several successive matches across a few weeks; she used her celebrity to forge political pacts toward her goal of becoming a Linnorm Queen.4

She achieved her goal later in 4704 AR after she defeated the linnorm known as Boiltongue with the help of a mighty weapon she claims she received from "earth spirits", a statement which angered the other rulers of her land.5 Unlike them, she refused to mount the stuffed linnorm in her throne room but instead keeps him as her thrall, a decision that caused the other Linnorm Kings to scoff. Boiltongue refuses to say much, other than that he was defeated in combat by Estrid and bargained his life for servitude. He is somewhat of a sore subject and largely avoided in conversation, being simply referred to as Estrid's Pet when it is necessary to discuss him, but his presence greatly increased Halgrim's defenses.23


The cousin of White Estrid, Runewulf the Unbeliever, is commander of the Graycloaks, the district watch of the Ascendant Court district of Absalom.6
