For other uses, see Helgi.

Helgi was a Nord child and the daughter of Hroggar, who lived in Morthal. She and her mother burned to death in a house fire set by Laelette, investigated in the quest "Laid to Rest."

Life after demise[edit | edit source]

Helgi exists as an innocent ghost, unaware of the gravity of events involving her family. It is greatly implied that Hroggar, her father, was to blame for the fire. He moved in with Alva immediately after the fire, causing suspicion to fall upon him for the murder of his own family, to be with her. During a ghostly "hide and seek" game with Helgi, the Dragonborn will find Laelette, the missing wife of Thonnir, and discover that she is a vampire. She appears at Helgi's exhumed coffin, over a rocky hill west of the house.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Laid to Rest[edit | edit source]

I've avenged you and your mother. "You did? Maybe that's why I'm so sleepy now."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Helgi appears near the exit and thanks the Dragonborn for "making her mother feel better," after Movarth Piquine is killed in his lair. She vanishes soon after.
  • There is a Helgi mentioned in a letter found on a dresser in the cellar of Anise's Cabin, which can be found near the Guardian Stones. It is possible that the two are the same people. The note mentions that Helgi has "power coursing in [her] blood" and invites Helgi to come to Anise's cabin to form a witches' coven. This would help explain as to why the vampires were so interested in turning Helgi, as she would have been a powerful weapon.
  • Helgi is an Icelandic name, though it's actually a male one. The female variant is Helga.
