Son of Varth and Haynee, a pair of AncientAstronauts who returned to Earth, abandoned by their ancestors, in search of the new energy sources. After the conflict between his father and grandfather over what to do with PunyEarthlings, Thorgal was cast down onto the Earth in a water-proof capsule and found by the Vikings. He became a [[MuggleFosterParents foster son of the Viking chief]] Leif Haraldsson, but never felt [[RapePillageAndBurn fully a Viking]]. He is the [[HappilyMarried husband]] of Aaricia (with a [[AmnesiacLover three-year gap]]) and [[GoodParents father]] of Jolan, [[DaddysGirl Louve]] and Aniel. Has always had a [[ResignedToTheCall love-hate relationship with gods]].
