Mralki is a Nord and the owner of the Frostfruit Inn in Rorikstead.


Mralki used to be an Imperial Legionnaire who fought in the Great War. Later after the war, he settled down in Rorikstead with his son, Erik


Erik the SlayerEdit

Speaking with Erik reveals that he is desperate to become an adventurer. He asks the Dragonborn to speak to his father and convince him to let Erik go. The Dragonborn can persuade, intimidate, or pay Mralki to allow Erik to become an adventurer.

Hired ThugEdit

Mralki sends thugs after the Dragonborn, if stolen from.

A False FrontEdit

When the Dragonborn is supposed to send false orders to Morthal for the Stormcloak Rebellion, he first needs to find an Imperial Courier who has a document Galmar Stone-Fist can forge. Galmar then says to him that the Innkeepers of Rorikstead and Dragon Bridge might know more about where the courier is, as Imperial Couriers usually stop at these locations. When talking to Mralki in Frostfruit Inn, he can either be persuaded, intimidated or bribed to get information about the Imperial Courier. The other innkeeper who can be spoken to is Faida, in Dragon Bridge.


A False Front

Seen any Imperial couriers lately? "I tend to keep my patrons' privacy." (If the courier is in the inn: "He's in the inn. Look around. I'm sure you'll find him.")

His life is in danger. "It is? Well that's different. He was here, but he left. If you leave now, you can probably catch him. Or you can just wait here. He'll be back soon enough." (If the Dragonborn's Speech level is insufficient: "Yeah, sure it is. You don't fool me.")
Maybe some gold will help? "Well, if you insist. He was here... [...]" (If one does not have 520 GoldIcon: "Seems your purse is lighter than you thought.")
I don't have time for this. I can get rough with you if I have to. "Now, now! That won't be necessary. He was here... [...]"
Never mind. "Hmph."

Note: he will say, "He was here, but he left... [...]," as well as a unique response depending on the reply chosen by the Dragonborn, for any answer chosen. If asked, "Seen any Imperial couriers lately?" again after the information has been given, he will only repeat where he is.


Erik the Slayer

Erik: "Father, how old were you when you left home?"
Mralki: "I know where this is going, son. As I've said many a time. the world is a dangerous place. You're much safer here at the farm, with me."
Erik: "But I don't want to be safe! I'm not afraid of the dangers out there. The only thing I'm afraid of is wasting my life on this farm."
Mralki: "Yes, that's your mother's side of the family talking. Just stay on for one more season, that's all I ask."

Mralki: "I heard you sneaking around downstairs last night. Were you trying to break into my chest again, son? I've told you to leave it alone."
Erik: "I just wanted to try on your old armor, from back when you were a soldier. I thought I might be old enough to wear it."
Mralki: "I've told you a hundred times, I lock that chest for a reason. I don't want you getting a head full of ideas about adventure and glory."
Erik: "I'm old enough to decide how to live my life, and I'd be honored to wear your armor, if you'd just let me. I'm strong enough to handle it."
Mralki: "Strong, yes, but how clever are you? I'll tell you what, if you can open the lock on my chest, you can have everything in it."
Erik: "I'll take your challenge, but if I win I get to start a new life as an adventurer, and with no objections from you."
