Áskil, was born to a pure-blood family. Along with his 3 siblings Astrid, Amalja, and Eilif. Him and Astrid have always been the loud, outgoing ones while Amalja and Eilif have always been the quiet, more reserved. They were born and raised on the Lítla Dímun, one of the Faroe Islands. No muggles live on Lítla Dímun, and they believe it is "uninhabited", making it a good place for Bjørgfinnurs to live. That means no one to play with when they were little but being quadruplets they always had someone to have a laugh with. At the age of 11, Áskil and his brother and sisters all got letters from Durmstrang.
He is a bit strongheaded. He is the "leader" of the quadruplets. Áskil is very determined and will do anything to get his way. He's also the prankster of the 4, he loves a good joke and having fun doing it.
