Despite being the strongest of the four leaders he favors negotiating and peace over war. Following the defeat of either Sweom Hunusson or Frigga Hengisdottir (depending on player choice), Gunnar will send an envoy to the player during the The Last Leader quest. The player would then intimidate Gunnar by recruiting new units. Finally, the player would defeat Gunnar during the The Halls of Hymir quest. His fate is unknown following his defeat.
Gunnar is a male first name of Nordic origin. Ironically, the name means "soldier" and "attacker," though he is the most diplomatic of the four leaders. Snotir is an Icelandic word of unknown meaning and origin.
