Character description

1) Gunnar Hámundarson was a 10th-century Icelandic chieftain. He lived in Hlíðarendi in Fljótshlíð and is probably better known as Gunnar of Hlíðarendi (Old Norse: Gunnarr á Hlíðarenda). He features prominently in the first half of Njáls saga, which tells of the chain of events ultimately leading to his death in battle.

Gunnar Hámundarson in Wikipedia

2) In Chris Beckett's Marcher, Gunnar is one of the "Warriors of Dunner", a version of Norse religion being spread through the various parallel universes. He is a heavy, seemily jolly man, but quite ruthless.
