Running the library for longer than most of us have been alive, Vigdis is a permenant fixture in the library of Navis. She knows the stacks like the back of her hand, and can track down some of the most obscure tomes in the world if pressed, and she also has a keen and varied interest in the history of cartography and has collected dozens upon dozens of ancient maps for study. When she isn't looking after the library, she can be found in a nook with a pot of coffee and a good romance novel. Not only would the collation process have been impossible without her help, she has contributed to the Geography section with her dozens of maps and records.
