Contract: Kill Helvard is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in which the Dragonborn must assassinate Helvard, the housecarl of the Jarl of Falkreath as part of a Dark Brotherhood contract.
- Kill Helvard
- Report back to Nazir
Helvard is the housecarl of Falkreath, and may be found in the Jarl's Longhouse. If the Dragonborn chooses to wait until night, he will eventually go to sleep in a room on the upper floor by himself. At that time, it's possible to enter the room, close the door, and kill him without alerting the guards.
Alternatively, the Dragonborn can have Helvard instigate an attack by speaking to him first which will prevent a bounty from being incurred or others becoming hostile, even when killing Helvard in front of guards:
"Yes, yes. What is it? We're all very busy here..."
(Remain silent) "Right. Well. If you have some kind of official business with the jarl, I'm afraid now's not the time. Go on then. Off with you."
You protect the Jarl. But who protects you? "And why would I... Oh. Oh! Guards! Guards, I need assistance!"
The Dark Brotherhood has come! "Fiend! You will not leave here alive! Guards! Guards!"
