Hägar is married to Helga, who is a formidable woman with bigger horns on her helmet than he has on his. The rest of Hägar's family consists of his young son Hamlet, and a daughter called Honi who is just old enough to be TheIngenue. His best friend is a short guy called Lucky Eddie. This is a gag-a-day Strip set in DarkAgeEurope covering both Viking invasions and sieges (he regularly harasses castles) and Hägar's home life.

* RapePillageAndBurn: Hagar his crew pillages a lot, and occasionally burn, but they spare the women. Kids read the strip, after all. (Well, except maybe [[http://hagarthehorrible.com/comics/october-10-2015/ this strip]], but the victim doesn't look all-that unhappy about it.) There are a lot of jokes about this; for example, in a strip, Hagar is leading an army with siege engines and a battering ram against a castle, but it has a sign that says, "No looting and pillaging allowed!" Hagar says, "Gee, I kinda hate to turn back now..."
