Scourge of Odin

Astrid sick from the Scourge of Odin

The Scourge of Odin is a lethal infectious disease transmitted by blood and said to have disappeared for centuries in the archipelago.


The effects are coughing, pale skin and fatigue. The infected turn pale and start coughing within a day or so. They turn too weak to walk and have a tendency to faint. During the following day, their skin turns pale and eventually into a sickly shade of green and their eyes become bloodshot. Death is said to occur during the third moon.


The only cure for this lethal disease is the green saliva secreted by Buffalords. This cure is hard to come by as Buffalords are critically endangered, thought to be extinct and its saliva appears to be volatile and evaporates quickly. The effect, fortunately, takes place almost instantly.


In Race to the Edge

According to Snotlout, the Scourge decimated entire villages. Astrid comes down with the Scourge of Odin when she enters a ship with the infected crew. As the Scourge of Odin can only be transmitted via blood, she became infected when scratched by a survivor. She was eventually cured with Buffalord saliva and the remaining crew were given a proper Viking funeral--their ship set ablaze in honor by the gang. ("Buffalord Soldier")
