"Yes, yes. What is it? We're all very busy here..."
Helvard[src]

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.

BackgroundEdit

I must kill Helvard, the housecarl of Falkreath. I may use any means at my disposal. When I am done, I am to report back to Nazir at the Sanctuary and collect my reward.

ObjectivesEdit

  1. Kill Helvard
  2. Report back to Nazir

WalkthroughEdit

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 Helgard 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:

(Remain silent) "Yes, yes. What is it? We're all very busy here..."

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!"

After the contract has been completed, Nazir rewards the Dragonborn with 500-750 GoldIcon according to their level.

  • If Helvard is dead before purchasing the Lakeview Manor plot of land in Hearthfire, this action will "cancel" out the chance to buy the deed from him or Nenya, even if the Dragonborn is ThaneThere is no current fix for this issue. If this occurs, the Dragonborn will have to settle for the other two houses in Hearthfire, which makes the Land Baron & Master Architect achievements impossible to attain.
    •  PC   This can be worked around by changing the relationship rank of Nenya to 3 using player.setrelationshiprank 19823 4. If it doesn't work, using player.setrelationship 19822 2 on Jarl Siddgeir and resurrect 1 on Helvard.
