Yes, quite a few explorers did not fit their environments.
Actually, his Papa, Thorvald came from Norway, where he was
banished for a murder, Eric progressed to a double murder in
Iceland and as a result of his banishment from Iceland went to
what is now known as Greenland. This pattern is not uncommon
to other discovery and imperial expansions. In Moscovia, and
later in Russia, runaway surf peasants who were fed up with
their landlords to the extent that they killed them, went on
and beyond outskirts of the Dukedom and later Empire and
settle there. Some would become settlers and get involved in
agriculture and cowboying, some would continue to kill and
thus move farther. Siberia was anschlussed like that as well
as part of Caucasus. They were called Cossacks and had a
peculiar and very interesting culture. They were all evaporised
by Comrade Stalin later. Individualism on collective basis is
not well tolerated by ego-maniacs who prefer to instill
collectivistic ideologies on an individual basis.
International and National Socialism are good examples of
Sir Francis Drake was an accomplished criminal and Captain
Cook was one hell of a cookie too. It doesn't take an
ordinary man to cross the boundaries of comfort zone.
Kinda like UNIX-Land phenomenon:)
