Leif is balding man with a mustache. He is short in stature and is getting up there in years.
Shortly after Leif moved to Greenland, his ship got trapped in an ice floe in a bay near Brattal for an entire month. After they quickly ran out of food and their ship was crushed by the ice, they decided they had to try to escape via walking on the ice. After walking for two nights, Leif realized he was alone and the other 6 in his crew had died.
