A Varyag is an alternate name for the Varangians, Scandinavian Vikings who migrated to Rus' (modern day Russia, Ukraine and Belarus) to act as mercenaries, pillage and sometimes trade. A retinue of these men were hired by the Emperor of Byzantine to guard him, as he did not trust any local soldiers due to internal political struggle at that time.
