Helgi's ghost

Helgi was a Nord child from Morthal. She was the daughter of Hroggar. She and her mother died in a fire that destroyed their house.

You will meet her ghost while investigating the fire. She will help you find the culprits. After you finish the quest, she will thank you for avenging her and her mother, and will "go to sleep".

She wears child's clothes and a pair of shoes.

Laid to RestEdit

Upon approaching Helgi for the first time : "Who's there? Is that you, father?"

Who are you?
"Helgi. But father says I'm not supposed to talk to strangers. Are you a stranger?"
Is Hroggar your father?
"You know him? He made my favorite dolly, but I can't find her. Are you sure you aren't a stranger?"
No. I'm a friend. Do you know what happened to your house?
"The smoke woke me up. It was hot and I was scared, so I hid. Then it got cold and dark. I'm not scared anymore. But I'm lonely. Will you play with me?"
If I do, will you tell me who set the fire?
"Okay! Let's play hide and seek. You find me and I'll tell you. We have to wait for nighttime though. The other one is playing too, and she can't come out until then."
The other one? What do you mean?
"I can't tell you. She might hear me. She's so close. If you can find me first, I can tell you."
Helgi's Ghost thanks you for avenging her mother's death

After defeating Laelette in the cemetery, Helgi talks to you from her coffin : "You found me! Laelette was trying to find me too, but I'm glad you found me first. Laelette was told to burn mommy and me, but she didn't want to. She wanted to play with me forever and ever. She kissed me on the neck, and I got so cold that the fire didn't even hurt. Laelette thought she could take me and keep me, but she can't. I'm all burned up. I'm tired. I'm going to sleep for a while now."

Once you've killed Movarth, Helgi waits for you at the entrance of the cave : "Mother's calling me. It's time for me to sleep now. I'm so tired. Thank you for making her feel better."


  • If you get into a fight near her burned house (with Benor, for example) between talking to the Jarl about the burned house and agreeing to play hide and seek with her, Helgi may step out into the open to spectate. No one will react to her presence.
