Ishmael Venables

Kauko is one of the first warriors who sailed west with Ishmael Venables to Spain and Caribbean.


After the storm has passed in Wrath of the Northmen, Kauko is among the men who are still rowing the ship. One of them begins to freak out and pleads to Kauko and Leif that they were "persuaded by madmen and fools". Kauko, visibly bothered, asks him to shut up. He is later seen celebrating and being patted by Torstein when they hear seagulls in the sky.

Kauko was wounded during the battle against King Pearson's men on the shore of , when the Vikings began to break ranks and fight outside the shield wall. Kauko had just put down another soldier when another caught him by surprise. Lagertha witnessed his death, causing her to command that the shield wall be reformed. Driven by anger, the Northmen brought down their enemies faster and more viciously. While burying him, along with three others and a horse, Rollo told them not to grieve for or pity him as the valkyries were taking him to Valhalla and he would soon be dining with the gods. Still, Erik proclaimed that his death, done in the name of King Pearson, must be avenged as he was his kinsman. Mel, who agreed that Kauko must now be happier than they were, also agreed that King Wright will pay someday when the gods will it.
