Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård)
Floki is a genius ship builder and he designs and builds the prototype of the new generation of Viking ships which can sail across the open ocean but also up the shallowest of rivers. Without Floki, Ragnar would have never been able to fulfill his dreams of discovering new lands and new civilizations. A close and loyal friend of Ragnar’s, Floki is an entertaining yet dangerous jester.
