In the burning ruins of an ancient city, Ragnar Lothbrok's eldest son with his second wife Aslaug, Ubbe, found one lone survivor. A young girl. A girl with deep and dark and red eyes, and hair black as night with a single streak of white. "Aila." Had the girl said that her name was. Ragnar took the girl home, and with his Queen they raised her as their own. He called her . . . Aila Bloodeye.
