When Askeladd cornered his crew in the Faroe Islands, Thors fought all of Askeladd’s men in his own crew’s place, and he did it all bare-handed. Thors didn’t even protest when Askeladd’s archers shot him. Instead, Thors requested that Askeladd let his people go in peace, putting others first even if it meant dying.
