Role in Mystery of the Map (book)
You first see Embed on the 24th page of the graphic novel, where he is on look out at the beach. Octavian takes the strap of his backpack and makes it into a weapon. He then uses it to knock Embed out, leaving him laying there on the beach.
Later, on page 73, the kids run across him tied to a tree with underwear on. He tells the kids that he's not one of the vikings. They untie him, and he tells them that they must stop Octavian from carrying out his plan.
- His name was revealed from inside the Mystery of the Map Island code.
- While he is thought of usually as a viking, the appearances purvey that there is more to him than what he seems.
