Bilgemuck is a unique bristleback in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn. He belongs to the Rieklings of Thirsk Mead Hall, and runs away from the Rieklings when they accidentally scare him off.


The Chief of Thirsk Hall[]

After agreeing to assist the Riekling tribe, the Chief asks the Dragonborn to find Bilgemuck. He then gives meat to lure the boar back into his pen.
