Born to an American father and Norwegian mother near the border of Norway and Nyheim. His father was stranded in Norway when everything broke down during the plague, he was part of the American forces helping Norway. Gunnar was trained by his father and his mother. His mother grew up in northern Norway hunting, fishing, snow shoeing, camping, and working with her father on the dairy farm her family has had for many years. Gunnars parents have passed and Gunnar is trying to find purpose in his life beyond living. He was trained in the basics for firearm care and use, learned to live in northern Norway from his mother, and loves this land as only someone born here could. He speaks English, understands Swedish (his father was not overly fluent and his mother spoke excellent English, so it was the language most used in his house.
