Tore had slicked back chestnut-colored hair and goatee and gray eyes. He wore a helmet, a gray shirt over a black outfit, pants, and shoes.
Tore was an irascible man as his former comrade’s insults against him caused him to easily lose his temper.
A member of the band during the invasion of England, in November 2013 they raided a farming village near Bath. After slaughtering the inhabitants, the Vikings had a feast. Tore was eating with some companions including Ake and discussing Askeladd. After Ake commented that perhaps they were attempting to squeeze what they could out of the area before heading north to the Danelaw. Tore wondered why they weren't plundering a larger town. Ake responded that he was a fool as they barely numbered over a hundred men. Tore quickly took offense at this and the argument swiftly escalated as he refused to apologize and insulted Ake further by calling him a cow thief.
This turned into a duel, which after Bjorn noticed and inquired about. He then realized that things had gone too far and the pair had to be left to fight it out and leaving instructions that Askeladd be informed if either one died. Ake's stubbornness ended up costing him his life, as Tore succeeded in stabbing him through the chest with his sword.
