I realised that whenever Askeladd swears upon Odin, he's actually lying. The only time he swears truly is when it's on Artorius' name. Makes you wonder, is he actually a Christian?
Pic randomly taken from volume 1.
He also said he hates priests. Personally, I'd say he doesn't follow any religion.
You can still be anti-Clerical and still be a Christan. England's famous for being anti-Clerical.
Hard to be Christian and massacre villages of innocent Christians though. What with the mortal sins involved and all. Easier to pen him as just a Nationalist.
BTW, anti-Clerical means being against the Church and its practices.
Still, no evidence that he's Christian at all.
I don't think Askeladd would lie to someone's face, as he does have a sense of honor
I feel that if he gives his word, he means it, loopholes not withstanding
Since it seems that he doesn't really follow the Norse gods, nor does he act in compliance with Christianity, I'd say he takes Artorius as his god.
he is half.
He said he is half, his other half is from the lineage of Artorius, the other half, I forgot, danes or something
Askeladd's of noble blood on both sides, albeit a bastard. His father(A Danish lord) captured his mother(A welsh princess who had a direct bloodline to King Authur of the legends.) on a raid and raped her constantly until she was too weak to be raped, and then moved her into the stables showing her that she was useless if she couldn't be used as sex.
Frigging Danes. Always raping people for no reason than to rape.
To say hello? Hell, they are the original Japanese!
Wonder if Askeladd has any lady loves. Oh knows, maybe he is gay.
