"Farm work is hard work. It's good to relax when I can, but I still have to listen to my brothers harping about 'injustices'."
―Faryl Atheron[src]

Faryl Atheron is a Dunmer farmer working at the Brandy-Mug Farm, just outside of Windhelm.

Background[edit | edit source]

He lives in the Atheron Residence and can be found either there or somewhere within Windhelm. He is the brother of Aval Atheron and Suvaris Atheron.

He spends the majority of his time relaxing, sitting on the ledge in front of the New Gnisis Cornerclub in the Gray Quarter. He works for Bolfrida Brandy-Mug at her farm a few days out of the week, stating he has little choice as a Dunmer in Windhelm. He will further show his shame on the farm when he reveals that he is glad nobody from the city can see him out there.

Conversations[edit | edit source]

Bolfrida Brandy-Mug

Bolfrida: "Now, I've been reading about the best ways to grow corn in permafrost..."
Faryl: "I keep telling you, without a warming enchantment, it will never grow past your ankles."
Bolfrida: "Right, but if you plow the soil with fire salts..."
Faryl: "Then you've salted it and nothing will grow at all. Genius."

Bolfrida: "Oh dear, I hadn't thought of that."

Faryl: "I don't think we're going to get those potatoes to come in."
Bolfrida: "Well of course, not with an attitude like that!"
Faryl: "The ground is practically frozen. We can't dig down far enough."

Bolfrida: "Come on, we just need a little elbow grease."

Bolfrida: "I'll bet this is better than trying to grow something in Morrowind, though, isn't it?"
Faryl: "Firstly, I've never even seen Morrowind. Secondly, in volcanic soil the plants practically grow themselves."
Bolfrida: "Oh, my, I hadn't thought of that."

Faryl: "There are places in the world that aren't wrapped in ice, you know."

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "Of course working for Bolfrida isn't my first choice. But what else can a Dunmer do out here?"
  • "My sister and I both work for the Nords. Our brother is ashamed of us, but at least we can afford to eat."
  • "Bolfrida is certainly grating, but she pays well. Thankfully nobody from the city can see me out here."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Faryl's brother, Aval, will send hired thugs after the Dragonborn if Faryl is killed, and vice versa.
  • If the Dragonborn enters a major city after murdering Aval, Faryl will challenge them to a duel, afterwhich he will turn hostile.
