'''Irileth''' is a [[Dunmer (Skyrim)|Dunmer]] [[Character Classes (Skyrim)#Nightblade|nightblade]] and a resident of [[Whiterun (Skyrim)|Whiterun]] living in [[Dragonsreach]]. She acts as [[housecarl]] to [[Jarl]] [[Balgruuf the Greater]], and rarely leaves his side. She assists the [[Last Dragonborn|Dragonborn]] in their first battle against the [[Dragons (Skyrim)|dragon]], [[Mirmulnir]]. She is encountered again later, as ally or enemy, during the [[Civil War]] questline.

Irileth is one of four housecarls in the game who is not a [[Nord (Skyrim)|Nord]]. The others are [[Faleen]], the [[Redguard (Skyrim)|Redguard]] housecarl of [[Jarl Igmund]] of [[Markarth (Skyrim)|Markarth]], [[Rayya]], also a Redguard, who is the housecarl of the [[Thane (Title)|Thane]] of [[Falkreath Hold (Skyrim)|Falkreath Hold]], and the fourth is [[Teeba-Ei]] who becomes the housecarl to [[Sorli the Builder]] if she becomes Jarl of Hjaalmarch during the Civil War.

==Personality==
Irileth is very serious about her job and her loyalty to Balgruuf, occasionally to the point of paranoia. Even after the Dragonborn kills [[Mirmulnir]], Irileth remains distrustful of him/her, though she still tells the Dragonborn that she is glad that they are on her side. She does not seem to care much about [[Skyrim]]'s traditions or tales; after Mirmulnir is slain, she refuses to involve herself in debating about the Dragonborn's identity; she is simply relieved that the dragon is dead.

If the Dragonborn visits Irileth in the [[Blue Palace]] after claiming Whiterun for the [[Stormcloaks]], she speaks of the many dark ways she has dreamt of the Dragonborn's death. Additionally, she is very suspicious of the Dragonborn, approaching them with her weapon drawn and saying that she has constantly got her eye on them.

<div class="diabox">
 
''"Keep your distance..."''
 
:'''How did a dark elf come to be Housecarl?''' ''"Balgruuf and I share a battle bond. We met as youths, and forged our friendship in the fires of war. When he became Jarl, I insisted on serving as his protector. He had no cause to argue. Gods, you are curious. Almost... dangerously so."''
 
:'''What does a Housecarl do?''' ''"I am charged with protecting the Jarl from any and all threats. Powerful men have many enemies. More so, in times of strife. So you can imagine the dangers. Oh, yes, there have been attempts on the Jarl's life. More than one would-be assassin has met his end at the tip of my blade."''
 
::'''What threats does the jarl face?''' ''"Take your pick. Dragons, Stormcloak assassins, ambitious and unscrupulous nobles... Sometimes I think his own children want him dead. And those are just the physical threats. Assaults on his sanity are another matter entirely. Every day, he deals with obsequious functionaries and incompetent bureaucrats. Sadly, I'm not allowed to eliminate them. Well, not yet, anyway."''
 
''"I've got my eyes on you."''

:'''I have news from Helgen. About the dragon attack.''' ''"Well, that explains why the guards let you in. Come on then, the Jarl will want to speak to you personally."''
 
:'''Alvor sent me. Riverwood is in danger.''' ''"As housecarl, my job is to deal with all dangers that threaten the Jarl or his people. So you have my attention. Now, explain yourself."''
 
::'''A dragon has destroyed Helgen.''' ''"You know about Helgen? The Jarl will want to speak to you personally. Approach."''
 
::'''I was told to give the message directly to the Jarl.''' ''"Whatever you have to say to the Jarl, you can say to me. I'm starting to think..."''

You better get back to Whiterun right away. Jarl Balgruuf will want to know what happened here. I'm taking command here for the moment. You head back to Whiterun and let the Jarl know what happened."''

After Jarl Balgruuf is informed of Riverwood's request for aid, he will send Irileth to dispatch the guards. The following conversation can be witnessed at the front gates:

'''Whiterun Guard 2:''' "It's just us against a dragon, is that it?"<br />
+
'''Irileth:''' "I can’t afford to send anyone else. And we don’t know where the dragon is. Your main job will be to keep an eye out and get the people to safety if the town is attacked. I don't expect the three of you to fight off a dragon by yourselves. But I do expect you to do your duty."<br />

Irileth will be found in Dragonsreach when [[Ulfric Stormcloak|Ulfric's]] axe is being delivered to Jarl Balgruuf, and the following conversation will take place about it:
'''Irileth:''' "Here's the situation. A dragon is attacking the Western Watchtower."<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard:''' "A dragon?"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 2:''' "Now we're in for it."<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 3:''' "What?"<br />
 
'''Irileth:''' "You heard right! I said a dragon! I don't much care where it came from or who sent it. What I do know is that it's made the mistake of attacking Whiterun!"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard:''' "But Housecarl... how can we fight a dragon?"<br />
 
'''Irileth:''' "That's a fair question. None of us have ever seen a dragon before, or expected to see one in battle. But we are honorbound to fight it, even if we fail. This dragon is threatening our homes... our families. Could you call yourselves Nords if you ran from this monster? Are you going to let me face this thing alone?"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard:''' "No, Housecarl!"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 2:''' "We're so dead..."<br />
 
'''Irileth:''' "But it's more than our honor at stake here. Think of it - the first dragon seen in Skyrim since the last age. The glory of killing it is ours, if you're with me! Now what do you say? Shall we go kill us a dragon?"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard:''' "Yeah!"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 2:''' "Damn right!"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 3:''' "Yeah!"<br />
 
'''Irileth:''' "Let's move out."
 
</div>
 
 
At the Western Watchtower:
 
 
<div class="blockquote">
 
'''Irileth:''' "No signs of any dragon right now, but it sure looks like he's been here. I know it looks bad, but we've got to figure out what happened. And if that dragon is still skulking around somewhere. Spread out and look for survivors. We need to know what we're dealing with."<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard:''' "No! Get back! It's still here somewhere! Hroki and Tor just got grabbed when they tried to make a run for it!"<br />
 
'''Irileth:''' "Guardsman! What happened here? Where's this dragon? Quickly now!"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard:''' "I don't know! Kynareth save us, here he comes again..."<br />
 
'''Irileth:''' "Here he comes! Find cover and make every arrow count!"<br />
 
</div>
 
 
After the [[Last Dragonborn|Dragonborn]] absorbs the dragon's soul:
 
 
<div class="blockquote">
 
'''Whiterun Guard:''' "Dragonborn? What are you talking about?"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 2:''' "That's right! My grandfather used to tell stories about the Dragonborn. Those born with the Dragon Blood in 'em. Like old Tiber Septim himself."<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard:''' "I never heard of Tiber Septim killing any dragons."<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 3:''' "There weren't any dragons then, idiot. They're just coming back now for the first time in... forever. But the old tales tell of the Dragonborn who could kill dragons and steal their power. {{Hide|You|Referring to the Last Dragonborn}} must be one!"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 4:''' "What do you say Irileth? You're being awfully quiet."<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 5:''' "Come on, Irileth, tell us, do you believe in this Dragonborn business?"<br />
 
'''Irileth:''' "Hmph. Some of you would be better off keeping quiet than flapping your gums on matters you don't know anything about. Here's a dead dragon, and that's something I definitely understand. Now we know we can kill them. But I don't need some mythical Dragonborn. Someone who can put down a dragon is more than enough for me."<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 3:''' "You wouldn't understand, Housecarl. You ain't a Nord."<br />
 
'''Irileth:''' "I've been all across Tamriel. I've seen plenty of things just as outlandish as this. I'd advise you all to trust in the strength of your sword arm over tales and legends."<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 3:''' "If {{Hide|you|Referring to the Last Dragonborn}} really are Dragonborn, like the old tales, you aught to be able to Shout. Can you? Have you tried?"<br />
 
'''{{Hide|Last Dragonborn|The player character}}:''' "{{Hide|Fus|[[Unrelenting Force (Skyrim)|Unrelenting Force]]}}"<br />
 
'''Whiterun Guard 3:''' "That was Shouting, what you just did! Must be. You really are dragonborn, then..."
