Erik Redaxe was a Norse Leader who led raids on Ulthuan. [1a]

He is known as the first leader to unite the clans of Norsca under one banner as High King. [2a]

History

As a restless youth he took a longship and a score of men on a long raid down the coast of Kislev all the way to the Bay of Corsairs, gathering men, more ships and plenty of loot. He was finally defeated by a Sea Elf fleet and returned home after two years raiding with a dozen ships laden with spoils. [2a]

Learning that Marienburg was assembling a fleet to attack him, he decided to strike first, carrying out a daring night raid on the city, capturing Guy du Lac who he then ransomed to Emperor Wilhelm the Wise in exchange for food stores to feed his people. [2a]

In 2502 IC he attacked the High Elf homeland with a huge fleet but was defeated by a large elf war fleet commanded by Tyrion, driving them away from the coast. [1a]
