Nordal appears briefly in the Burning Bridge.

He was a Skandian and one of the group that Erak brought with him to fight for Morgarath's army. Before the Skandians could return to their ships, Nordal was mortally wounded.

He later told Halt where the other Skandians were taking Will Treaty and Cassandra in exchange for Halt putting his sword back in his hand. He did this because he was dying and Skandians believed that if you died without a weapon in your hand you would wander through the underworld for eternity.

He is mentioned very briefly in The Battle For Skandia. When Halt told Erak how he followed their footsteps, Erak didn't believe Nordal would have told the Ranger, remarking that Nordal "would've sooner spat in (Halt's) eye" than tell him where they were.
