Olof was the eldest son of his family of Scandanavian herdsmen. When he was 8, a very charismatic missionary came to his village, and they all converted to Christianity. Upon reaching his early teens, he was betrothed to a girl from a nearby village. When they met, he found that he disliked her but she liked him. In an effort to put off his marital union and still not offend anyone, Olof told his family he wished to do some travel and trade to save up money for their wedding. In truth, he was just hoping to delay what he saw as his inevitable marriage to the girl his family had arranged to be his wife.
Olof saw his embrace as a punishment from God for not staying to marry the girl his family had chosen for him. Although he misses his family, he dares not return to his tribe now, as he is afraid of accidentaly hurting them when he frenzies or is too hungry. Olof is learning to accept his undead existance, and he finds pleasure in the wilds and nature. He still carries a lot of guilt about walking away from his family and tribe. He spends much time alone, contimplating what it means to be a vampire.
