Höde is a young Viking warrior. She has lived near the court of the King and Princess Nanna since she was a child.
Over the years, the two teenage girls have grown close and fallen in love. Unfortunately, homosexual relations are punishable by death and when the king finds out, he has no choice but to condemn the young women.
Out of love for Nanna and to save her from certain death, Höde takes full responsibility and is condemned to wander through Fafnir’s labyrinth. If she manages to get out of it, she will be pardoned and free to go wherever she wants, but the labyrinth has some terrible trials in store for her.
