So according to legend, Iceland has four guardian spirits: A stone giant, a giant bull, a giant dragon, and a giant bird.
I think we all can agree Mr. Puffin is not a normal bird. He talks, he’s probably over a thousand years old if he’s been with Iceland since Iceland was born, and he never seems to leave Iceland’s side.
Would it not make sense that there would at least be one of those four Guardian’s keeping an eye on Iceland? One in a small, relatively inconspicuous form? Like a puffin?
