The Village Chief, also called Chieftain[1] is a character in Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage.


The Village Chief is a short Viking covered in gray hair. He has a grey-white moustache and dark grey hair. He has a pair of grey eyes and wears a tall, bronze-colored, metal helmet. On each side of his helmet are two curved horns. He holds a long brown hammer. The shaft of the hammer is grey and the butt and head of the hammer are brown. The head of the hammer is very small.

Game information

The Village Chief talks in a few levels, but outside of that, does nothing. On Hammerfest levels 1 to 4, he will speak at the start of the level and at the end. He appears during all of the game's cutscenes, then again during Troll Marsh level 18 Checking In, and again on Under Dwell level 11 Like Clockwork, level 20B Swing Boat Ride, and finally on level 23 Catapults.

  • Cutting Master: I always thought it was a little on the 'small' side anyway!


  • Village Chief: WELL DONE, MY BOY!
  • Village Chief: I'll go fetch your trophy to mark this achievement!
  • Cutting Master: Obviously I assume there will also be a trophy for me?
  • Village Chief: Erm!?!
  • Cutting Master: Throughout my challenge, I've shaped him into someone almost worthwhile!
  • Cutting Master: ...It deserves recognition, considering what I had to work with!
  • Village Chief: *Sigh*... OK, maybe you can share it.
  • Icebreaker: OMG! I can't believe I get to share a trophy with my idol!!!
  • Village Chief: -One trophy- coming right up!

Village Chief goes into the windmill to get the trophy.

An icy windy starts, sweeping the Vikings, The Cutting Master, and the Chests away, except the Village Chief (that was in the Windmill) and the Icebreaker (that was not swept because he kept his heavy hammer).

The Village Chief comes out from house with the trophy.

  • Village Chief: My word! Where did everybody go?

  • Village Chief: What are you waiting for?
  • Icebreaker: ???
  • Village Chief: GO ALREADY!!!

A chicken flies by and perches on the drakkar, next to the Viking Chief.

From the Ice Breaker iOS website's Character page:

The Chief is leader over the whole village. He has been doing it a long time... maybe a little too long as he seems to be getting a little forgetful in his twilight years. At the start of the game he helps you learn the skills you need to compete in the Hammerfest games to become an Icebreaker. Which we guess is important as it is the name of the game after-all!

He will appear later in your quest from time to time to erm... check out how your getting along !?! Ah bless, the harmless old chap clearly has too much time on his hands.
