Richard of Kent is a Templar agent and captain of the Templar ship Sealion. Distinguished by his heavy dark beard and a dry personality, Richard is a pragmatic, grounded individual who finds himself an unwitting foil to Thorfridr as she faces the challenge of recovering the wheel. He is a true man of the Temple, not allowing personal concerns of his own or others to come before the task at hand. A principled man, Richard is also not afraid to stand up for those under his charge. Friends with Haraldur and Hulda, the Kentishman speaks English, French and Norse, the latter of which meaning he is an ideal agent to undertake work across Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland.
