Sir Balvin was, at one point, nicknamed 'The Lizard King' - for, among other things, the distinctive scales covering his armor.

|If you are of the North, you probably know Sir Balvin. If you are a fighter, you probably have bone bruises with his name on them. For years, he gave unceasingly of his time and his expertise, gladly mentoring those who are new, but in such a way as to ever be encouraging, and never a bully. He is a gentleman, and a model of courtesy and integrity. His very zen-like wisdom and acceptance of others is qualities I admire and respect. His ability to forgive and to see the best in others is unmatched. Sir Balvin Thorfinnson is all that a Knight of the Society should be. I hosted an online photo gallery for several years. The picture with the most 'favorite!' votes was one of Balvin stretching out, prior to combat. It was very popular with the ladies. On a less salacious note, Balvin was one of the first individuals in Northkeep who welcomed my lord and I to the SCA. At our first event, though we had only just met, he invited us to join him at the camp of Sigen and Thorgrim. It was the start of a very long friendship.|
