This is Hammerfest. He is a very strong sorcerer, almost as strong as Norway himself. His animal/familiar is a flying wolf. Like Norway, he has and could see mythical creatures. He has a glowing curl. Most of his magic is relating to outer space or more specifically, the Aurora Boraelis. That is why his curl glows that colour. Sindre is strong enough to make the Northern Lights glow in the sky, or channel power from space to himself to fight magically.
He is Norway's younger brother. Unlike Spitsbergen, he was not magically created by Norway, but magically created by Norway's parents. Hammerfest, along with the other Norwegian cities, were given to Norway as a gift from his parents when he was old enough to become a nation. Think of it this way; his parents were afraid that Norway would be lonely, so they created these young children (magically) that would follow him and become his companions. Since Norway is a nation, he made them his cities.
Hammerfest is stoic, like most of Norway's family; he is not shy. He is bold and brave and ready to take any challenge that gets into his path. He practically is a destructive monster, like the rest of the Norwegian family (when they are angered), especially when protecting those that they care for.
Hammerfest has a mostly blue-hued costume, and "Aurora-like" magic and curl because Hammerfest is one of the best places to view the Northern Lights (since it is so far up North). It is also one of the best places to witness the Midnight Sun, so his hair's a bright golden blond. His wolf's name is SnÝstorm!
Why I made his body frame large? Hammerfest was a city that rebuilt quite quickly and well from its own debris. One of its nicknames is "The Phoenix of the North". It had survived wars and came back swiftly from its ashes. It was destroyed during the Napoleonic Wars, and was rebuilt to become a fortified garrison city. Later in World War II, the Nazis occupied the city, and then performed the "scorched-earth policy" during their retreat. That burned everything to bits. The civilians, due to their love of their land, worked together to recover the city, and in fact, the result was beautiful. Now, Hammerfest is one of the most scenic spots in the whole world. Therefore, I imagine Sindre to be a strong and tough person (well, those people ought to have a more muscular frame). He had witnessed many defeats and near-death situations, and he stood back up from his failure rapidly. He learned not to dwell on defeat and to look forward to achieve goals.
Reason why I made him such a hard-working boy? Hammerfest is home one of SnÝhvit's liquefied natural gas plants. This produced a large economic boom for Hammerfest, unlike other cities in Finnmark which experienced economic downfalls. Yes, it is very hard work to operate whatever machinery is inside those plants, and to construct it. It was the most expensive project in the history of Northern Norway. This plant is similar to a rig inside the ocean, except that it is not for oil. In Sindre's case, he probably is working hard to process the natural gas for SnÝhvit, and not only for the company, but for everyone.
Information and reasons for costume design:
Original: A mostly blue-hued costume, representing the Northern Lights.
Red jacket: It shows that Hammerfest indeed belongs to Norway. This costume also accentuates the "tough person" trait of the Phoenix of the North.
Wolf suit/furs: This costume symbolizes how heavy the snowfall can get in Hammerfest (which can cause a lot of avalanche problems and other issues), and how wilderness is hard to control. Sometimes reindeer get access into the city and people see them grazing on the streets. Funny. Also, the design kind of gives viewers an idea of Sindre's magical ability, since the costume looks like something from a fantasy book.
Armour (design to be posted): This just gives Hammerfest a tint of originality. Well, the armour was just an idea that needed to get out of admin's head, so I just designed it. And like the wolf suit, it makes people know that Sindre's magical, and the strong aspect shows. Perhaps the variety in this armour shows that Hammerfest is not only home to Norwegians, but also the Saami people? Probably not though... admin does not really know what the Saami people wear...
Viking: Isn't this obvious? The design's not really original. Admin just based it off of traditional men's Viking costume, so it isn't designed... this symbolizes that Hammerfest does belong in a previously Viking country.
Fact: Hammerfest is one of the world's northernmost cities. It is situated near the tip of the North Cape.
