Bjorn has found his niche in life as a berserker, carrying on a long family tradition. His size and shapeshifting have helped in numerous occasions, giving him a good reputation among mercenaries. His nickname came about on one campaign when one person just meeting him said "By Odin's missing eye, this man's a giant! He must be half-troll!" whereupon another companion said "No, look at how he puts the herring away. Half-fish is more like it!" The nickname stuck. He has come out well in battles, which has given him the money to clothe and armor his oversized body.
