Appearance

A preliminary design sheet of Norway.

Norway has short, light blond hair and dull blue eyes. He wears a belted, navy blue sailor top with a lighter blue collar, tie, and cuffs, with matching pants and sailor hat. He sports a Nordic Cross barrette in his hair, and has a detached haircurl that floats independently beside his head (and that haircurl often has a dot that floats independently beside it).

Of the five Nordics, he is the third tallest (and the third shortest). He speaks in a Tsugaru dialect.

Personality and Interests

Norway is a mysterious man of few words and expressions, and is reclusive from the everyday world. He is often shown to have a troll or fairy with him, and has the ability to see and interact with various supernatural creatures.

Relationships

Denmark

Main article: Denmark

They have known each other since childhood, but while Denmark considers the two of them to be very close and believes that Norway feels the same way he does, he is unaware of Norway's teasing.

Iceland

Main article: Iceland

Norway feels strongly for Iceland, who he sees as a younger brother to him and as being very important. In return, it is said that Iceland considers Norway to be the home where his heart truly is. It was later revealed that Norway and Iceland are indeed "biological" brothers due to Iceland having been discovered by Norwegians, though Iceland became irritated at Norway's insistence to refer to him as a big brother ("onii-chan").


Anime

It has been confirmed on the official Hetalia website that Norway and Denmark will appear in the 4th season. He will be voiced by Minoru Iwasaki Tadashi.

Trivia

Young Norway in the Hetalia: Volume 3 Sketchbook

  • It was rumored that Norway would appear in the first season of the Hetalia anime, and that he would be voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro. But the news "announcement," which also claimed that Denmark and Iceland would appear, turned out to be a hoax. Despite this, some websites still circulate the false seiyū information. Norway is now officially played by Masami Iwasaki in the second season (and fourth season overall) of Hetalia: World Series.
  • Himaruya hasn't mentioned what the curl is (Austria's Mariazell, America's Nantucket, Korea's Korean Spirit, etc) but has said that Norway seemed like a whimsical character, and therefore had a floating curl. Some fans have speculated that the curl could've been the island of Svalbard, with the dot being the smaller island of Jan Mayen.
