Introduction to The Northman
The Northman is the main protagonist in Diana Gabaldon’s historical work, Outlander. He is not a Scotsman or an Englishman, nor is the American. His story began in 1742 when he was a young Highland warrior with no set plans to become anything other than what he was born as.
He was different from the other warriors of his clan and the period in that he was literate and had knowledge of medicine. He also was remarkably calm and thoughtful, traits mainly seen in the English who lived south of Scotland.
However, one trait he did share with his fellow clan members, which is still common among all Scottish people, is a hearty appetite for food. Because of this, he has a muscular build and broad shoulders, which appear outstandingly larger than his average height would suggest.
