"We'll meet again in Sovngarde, brother."

Gunjar was a soldier of the Stormcloaks who was captured along with the Dragonborn and Ralof at Helgen.



Gunjar's body is found on the floor next to a table in Helgen Keep. If the Dragonborn chooses to follow Ralof in the Unbound quest, Ralof will instruct the Dragonborn to take Gunjar's gear after untying his/her bonds. Conversely, if the Dragonborn chooses to follow Hadvar no dialog about him will be said.


Gunjar either died from wounds dealt by Alduin, or was killed by a passing Imperial soldier.

If the Dragonborn entered the keep with Ralof, upon discovering Gunjar, Ralof will say "We will meet again in Sovngarde, brother."



  • There is a carriage driver in The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire that shares his name with Gunjar. See Gunjar (Hearthfire).
  • Although Gunjar's corpse is permanent, he will resist Dead Thrall.
  • He can be also spawned with console command "player.placeatme "ID", which will spawn him also with voice acting like a standard Stormcloak soldier.
