Ivar is a close friend of Thorbrand Finnsson, High Priest of Odin, and is politically a very powerful man. As lord of Peel Castle, he hold control of a large chunk of the navy and army of the kingdom.
He suffers from a short fuse, especially where insults (real or imagined) to his family are concerned.
