"My duty is to keep the Jarl safe. Not play nursemaid to you sycophants."
―Bolgeir Bearclaw[src]


Bolgeir Bearclaw is a Nord warrior in Solitude and the Housecarl of Jarl Elisif the Fair.


He can be found in Solitude inside the Blue Palace. He always wears a set of incomplete steel plate armor, as it is missing the helmet.


Elisif the FairEdit

Bolgeir: "We lost another five guardsmen, my Jarl. If General Tullius continues to conscript our men and send them off to battle, we'll have none left to protect the city."
Elisif: "Yes, I know. The general acted with my blessing. It is vital that we bring Ulfric to justice, but that cannot happen until his army of Stormcloaks is defeated utterly."
Bolgier: "Told you that, did he? I'm sworn to protect you, my Jarl, but I'm the last line of defense. The first line is the walls around this city and the men who patrol them. Men whom, I might add, we're precious short on."
Elisif: "I'm aware of that, Bolgeir, and I appreciate your dedication. However, if we lose the war, the guardsmen of Solitude will make little difference in the end."
Bolgeir: "No disrespect toward the general, but sometimes I wonder if he's got your best interests at heart. In any case he won't be turnin' me into no Imperial soldier. I know my place, and it's at your side."
Elisif: "It comforts me to know that, Bolgeir."

Elisif the Fair & Falk FirebeardEdit

Elisif: "Steward, I have an idea that might help to bolster the morale of our people in this difficult time. I think we shall have a grand parade, and let General Tullius march his troops from the Blue Palace to Castle Dour in all their finery."
Falk: "What a... fine idea, my Jarl. However, I would suggest we wait until the war has ended. After all, the General needs his soldiers out in the field, fighting battles against the Stormcloaks."
Bolgeir: "I must protest, my Jarl. A parade would make you an easy target for a Stormcloak assassin. You're safer here in the palace."
Elisif: "Oh, very well. I can see there's no changing your stubborn Nord minds. But when this war is won, I will have my parade!"
Falk: "Yes, my Jarl."


  • "Keep your weapons out of your hands, and we'll get along just fine."
  • "Please address all questions to the Steward, Falk Firebeard."
  • "The Jarl has advised me not to talk about which court attendants I'd like to punch in the face. More's the pity."
