Shanaw, the Beothuk Huntress is one of the characters in Dead In Vinland.

Description[ | ]

Hi! I'm Kari. This my dad. He's a bit blunt, but he's great. What's your name?


If you don't talk, we'll have to kick you out of our camp, you know?

... Shanaw.

~ Kari and Shanaw, the night after Shanaw's recruitment

Keywords: Wild Girl – Skraeling – Hates Men

Shanaw was the daughter of the chief of the Beothuk tribe, a small native village living on an island not far from the island of Dead In Vinland.

A free spirit, she was an excellent hunter and runner, and was known amongst her kin for very mischevious behavior. Her many wacky moments, like dancing and howling naked under the moonlight, earned her the nickname of “Crazy Moon”.

How did she end up on the island of Eirik and his family? And why? That’s a secret you will have to uncover, even if her shell may be hard to crack.

The only thing we know, is that she took the name of “Hidden Raven”. And that she doesn’t want to talk to Eirik. Weird.

Shanaw is a "Looter Shooter" who excels in the ranged row, though many of her skills are usable if she is forced to be in the melee.

Like Parvaneh and Cissé, Shanaw's "Looter" trait means the party will collect more loot after their victory if she is in the party. Note that multiple Looter traits DO stack.

She has the following skills:

Relationships[ | ]

See Shanaw/Conversations for dialogue between Shanaw and the other characters.


Shanaw typically refuses to talk with Eirik, preferring to glare and grumble at him.






Shanaw gets along extraordinarily well with Kari. The two share a similar age and desire to freely explore and play. Kari will enjoy Shanaw's mischievous nature, though she will occasionally question the severity of some of Shanaw's more cruel pranks.

Spoilers: Shanaw and Kari
  • Lovers: If the player chooses options which have Kari agree and play with Shanaw, the two can engage in a romantic relationship. During conversation 6, the duo will be exploring a cave in the forest. Shanaw reveals she snuck some beer from camp. While drinking and playing, the two will accidentally kiss. Shanaw will then "instinctively" kiss on Kari on the lips before declaring a race back to camp, preventing Kari from responding. During conversation 8, the player will be offered the choice of telling Shanaw that she is Kari's best friend, or having Kari kiss her. Choosing to kiss Shanaw will cause them to enter a secret romantic relationship.
