―Bergritte Battle-Born[src]

Missing in ActionEdit



Alfhild Battle-BornEdit

Alfhild: "So, what book should I read to you tonight?"
Bergritte: "How about The Lusty Argonian Maid?"
Alfhild: "Mother!"
Bergritte: "You've got no sense of humor, you know that? Why don't you pick up where you left off with The Real Barenziah."

Lars Battle-BornEdit

Bergritte: "Lars, dear, why don't you go outside and play? It's a beautiful day."
Lars: "That's all right, grandmother. I like staying home with you."
Bergritte: "It's that Braith girl again, isn't it? Has she been bothering you again? I've a mind to speak with her mother."
Lars: "No! Please, grandmother, don't do that. I'm fine. Really. Can we just... not talk about this anymore?"
Bergritte: "All right, dear."

  • If she is killed, hired thugs may be sent after the Dragonborn by Alfhild Battle-Born. In a note, she asks that they make the Dragonborn "pay for killing her beloved Bergritte Battle-Born," and that they "return with proof of the deed."
  • She may also send out a contract to hired thugs if the Dragonborn is caught stealing something for the quest "Missing in Action" or if the Dragonborn kills her family members.
