* GoodIsNotNice: [[spoiler: She might be fond of Uhtred, but she doesn't hesitate to criticize and nag him when it's required]].
* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler: Her own admissions hint she may have been a wife and a mother at some point before joining the Church]].
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: She urges Alfred and his advisors to free Uhtred, insists on accompanying Ragnar to find him and helps Uhtred out of his HeroicBSOD after Halig's death and his time in slavery]].
* ReligiousBruiser
* RapeAsBackstory: When Uhtred and the gang are introduced to her, she's being raped by a Dane.

!!Guthred
->'''Portrayed By:'''
The Danish Christian convert king of Cumbraland.

* LawfulStupid
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: When he sees a pissed off Uhtred storming back into Eoforwic after being freed from captivity. Also during the multiple times Uhtred threatens to kill him if Guthred so much as annoys him slightly]].
* PuppetKing
* TooDumbToLive

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Eadred]]
!!Abbot Eadred
->'''Portrayed By:''' David Schofield

A Christian abbot who facilitates Guthred's rise as King of Cumbraland, but who despises Uhtred for his level of influence with the young king.

* ArrangedMarriage: [[spoiler: Tries to force Gisela into one of these to make an alliance between Guthred and Aelfric. Fortunately, it's stopped by the arrival of Uhtred and Eadred's inability to keep his mouth shut until Uhtred has enough and puts a knife in his gut]].
* CorruptChurch
* EvilChancellor: Serves as one to Guthred
* FantasticRacism: Another Christian who's openly racist towards pagans.
* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler: He's one of the driving forces behind Guthred betraying and selling Uhtred into slavery. Guess who's the first to die when Uhtred gets free]].
* Obstructive Bureaucrat: Does his best to contradict Uhtred's advice in front of Guthred
* StayInTheKitchen: His attitude towards Gisela and his comments on women in general smack of these.
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: Having already earned Uhtred's enmity by conspiring with Uhtred's EvilUncle Aelfric to sell him into slavery, when Uhtred comes back and finds Eadred in the middle of trying to wed Gisela (the woman Uhtred's eye has fallen on) to Aelfric by proxy, it would probably be a good idea to keep his mouth shut. Eadred instead insists on repeatedly pressing Uthred's BerserkButton about the matter until Uthred finally has enough and Eadred comes down with a fatal case of knife-through-bowels]].
-->'''Uhtred''': [[spoiler: Say [Gisela]'s married one more time and the devil will take you, priest, I swear it!]]
-->'''Eadred''': [[spoiler: You're nothing but a heathen and ''the bitch is married! [Uhtred promptly stabs him in the gut]''.]]

[[folder:Skorpa]]
!!Skorpa of the White Horse
-->'''Played By:''' Jonas Malmsjö

A sociopathic Danish warrior whom Uhtred encounters raiding Cornwallum, Uhtred's initial alliance of convenience with Skorpa turns them into mortal enemies.

* AdaptationalBadass: Although Svein of the White Horse, the character Skorpa replaces, was a perfectly respectable badass viking in the books, he didn't have anything like the AxCrazy CrazyAwesome manner that Skorpa does in the series. He also didn't get the better of Uhtred or [[spoiler: personally kill Iseult]].
* AnAxeToGrind: Skorpa's weapon of choice.
* CardCarryingVillain: Unlike Ragnar the Younger, Guthrum and even Ubba, who have some redeeming qualities, Skorpa appears to have none.
* CoDragons: Becomes one to Guthrum with Ragnar the Younger in Episode 8.
* DecapitationPresentation: [[spoiler: Skorpa gleefully presents Uhtred with the head of Iseult as a taunt. It, uhh... doesn't end well for him]].
* ForTheEvulz: Skorpa makes no bones about the fact most of what he does is for this.
* ILied: [[spoiler: Skorpa promises to spare the defeated Cornish king Peredur in exchange for his wealth. The second Peredur tells them where it is, Skorpa kills him]].
* ImAHumanitarian: Skorpa's signature attack is to bite people's throats out.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: Dies this way by Uhtred's hand, courtesy of a spear from Beocca]].
* IShallTauntYou: Does this a lot to Uhtred.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Skorpa's taunting of Uhtred [[spoiler: with Isuelt's severed head only succeeds in driving Uhtred into an UnstoppableRage that shatters the Dane shieldwall and results in his death]].
* SlasherSmile: ''Every'' time he smiles is one of these.
* WouldHitAGirl: [[spoiler: He kills Isuelt, and repeatedly threatens her before that]].
