Norse - Son of Thorarin. Father of Skegg-Brodi. In an argument about the result of a horse-fight, Thord struck Thorstein with his staff and cut his head open. When later Thorstein sought an apology, he was rebuffed so he killed Thord who was head-groom to the rich landowner, Bjarni. Bjarni then sent two of his retainers, Thorhall and Thorvald, to kill Thorstein but they too died at the hand of their intended victim. Finally, goaded by his wife, Bjarni himself went forth to exact vengeance. The two men fought each other to a standstill and ended up as friends, with Thorstein undertaking to be a loyal servant to Bjarni, who then took care also of Thorstein's father, an old man. Sometimes identified as Thorstein.
