As a child, Snæfellsnes saw much hardship. He was born on a prairie to Snæfell and Bæthdottir di Happadalssýsla, where his father made a living as a fur-dealer. When Snæfellsnes was only 5 years old, his mother was trampled by bison. Overcome with the sadness brought about by open fields, Snæfell and Snæfellsnes moved to the forest, where Snæfell could continue trapping and selling furs. Snæfellsnes grew to love the forest, learning the trade of the almighty lumberjacks as he grew older. For every tree he chopped down, he planted another. Sadly, at the age of 15, the forest in which Snæfellsnes and his father lived was burned down by ogres. During the burning, in all of the commotion, his father was killed by a pack of frightened wolves. After this, Snæfellsnes vowed to avenge his forest and his father by systematically exterminating all ogres and anyone who is not kind to the forest.
Snæfellsnes picked up his hatchet and his father’s “specially-crafted axe of tree-felling and bear-killing” and began his morally-questionable, yet well-intentioned journey. Snæfellsnes quickly realized that, although his father’s axe was specifically designed for killing, his hands were more used to the hatchet, so he began wielding his hatchet in his right hand, and the axe in his off hand, practicing the art of fighting with two weapons as much as he could. As time went on, Snæfellsnes mastered the art of intimidating his foes into submission before slaying them. With such a focus on revenge, Snæfellsnes practically forgot why he had been so enamored with the forest in the first place, losing his sense of conservation and beauty. He eventually found himself in the eugenics business for so long that he didn’t know how to live outside of it.
During a sombering, self-reflective stay near his old home, Snæfellsnes met Fjaresti Iejirthar. Fjaresti convinced him to settle down and only kill ogres who are specifically trying to harm the forest, instead of exterminating an entire species. The two quickly got married and had a daughter, Alθingi.
Snæfellsnes now spends most of his time supplementing his income by chopping down trees, selling lumber and cultivating new trees. He does, however, spend four months of every year taking part in his mission to save the forests, in the process bringing home gold, jewels and other treasures as the families main source of income. He is also very good at digging holes, and randomly starts whistling from time to time without realizing it.
