Ingvar is a large, strong boy, which would normally make him a valuable warrior. However, he is so short-sited that anything over a meter in front of him is really blurry. Unfortunately, that makes him very clumsy, which makes others, like Tursgud, would bully him because of that. Even though his sight is awful, there is no on stronger, so when accepted into the Heron Brotherband, his strength was quite useful. After the Heron Brotherband recovered the Andomal, he was beginning to feel slightly useless because of his eyesight, when they visited Araluen, Hal visited a goldsmith, and created an invention that he called "Spectacles" however, they are not like the ones we may use, they are turtle-shell lenses with small holes with which he would focus through and would in enhance his vision. He gets very excited when he first puts on the spectacles to see everything that he couldn't see. Ingvar is very strong, but quite intelligent, and very kind.
