"Don't tell Leif, but this Southern seafarer can't swim!"

Tyrkir the Southerner is a member of Leif Erikson's crew.


Despite his seafaring skills, Tyrkir can't swim very well, nor can he stand the cold temperature of the water. He loves the grapes growing in Vinland, which don't grow in Greenland due to the cold climate. When Tyrkir falls out of a tree, he jumps onto a rock in the river, shivering from the cold.
