Lond at work

Lond is a Nord miner and is one of the many workers at the Quicksilver Mine in Dawnstar.

He spends his entire life working the mine and never even pauses to eat or sleep. Between 7am and 7pm he can be found working the smelter outside the mine; the rest of the time, he uses his pickaxe inside.

He wears a pair of ragged trousers and a pair of boots, and is equipped with a pickaxe. He carries a selection of lower class loot and gold.


Before Waking Nightmare is complete, every inhabitant of Dawnstar will be kept up by horrible nightmares. Lond also has to deal with this.

"If I get any rest soon, I'll count myself richer than a king."

He seems to be perfectly happy with his simple lifestyle, implying that he doesn't really fit in anywhere.

"I mine. Work the smelter. Ain't much else to tell."
"Been mining all my life. Quicksilver is as much my home as anywhere."


When working the smelter, he is often accompanied by his boss Leigelf who is at war with his wife Beitild, the owner of Iron-Breaker Mine:

Lond: "If you don't mind me saying, Leigelf. You're working too hard. Go home."
Leigelf: "Never. Not until we turn this mine around, drive Beitild out of business, and force her to apologize to me for everything she's done!"
Lond: "What is this feud you have with your wife? What started this?"
Leigelf: "I don't want to talk about it."
Lond: "You don't want to talk about it, or you don't know?"
Leigelf: "I don't want to talk about it."

Leigelf can also be heard complimenting Lond on his loyalty:

Leigelf: "Thank you for sticking by me."
Lond: "Where else would I go? Dawnstar is my home and working here is my job."
Leigelf: "It's good to hear you say that. I wish my wife was as simple as you."
Lond: "I'll, uh, just take that as a compliment."


  • According to the Creation Kit, his full name is Lond Northstrider. The Prima Official Game Guide also refers to him under this name.
  • The guide also states that Lond lives with fellow miner Fruki at her house. While Lond actually is a part of the house's locklist, ensuring he could theoretically enter the building, none of his packages ever make him go there.
    • The house does actually contain two seperate beds, implying that Lond was indeed meant to sleep there.
  • He shares his name with two other people in ESO and Blades.
