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.
