Knut is a Norseman who was apart of the crew on board the Freyja in Seer of Sevenwaters. He joined the ship intending to start a new life in a new country after his wife left him in his old homeland. When Freyja docked on a mysterious island guarded by a giant sea serpent, Knut was afraid and certain that they would not survive there and would be eaten by the sea monster. When a group of the crew were searching for a place to stay on the island, Knut convinced the rest of them to leave the island without them. Felix's brother Paul objected to that, and tried to stop the ship from leaving. As a punishment, Knut tied together Paul's arms and legs, ultimately causing his death during the shipwreck.
