Pactur is a Nord citizen who, with his wife Sorli the Builder, runs Rockwallow Mine in Stonehills for Bryling. He'll ask you to relay a message to Bryling on their behalf.

With Gestur Rockbreaker keeping an eye on the workers in the mine, Pactur spends most of his time inside the house with his wife and son. He sleeps between midnight and 7am and only has two errands during the day; at 9am he spends two hours standing outside the house, and at 1pm he pays a three-hour visit to the workers in the mine. At all other times he will relax in the house. He changes his routine drastically when the Stormcloaks take over Hjaalmarch and he leaves his and Sorli's son Sirgar in charge at Stonehills.

He wears a set of clothes and boots and has an iron dagger equipped. He carries the key to Sorli's House, a belted tunic, and a selection of common items and gold.

Related QuestsEdit


When approached, he will greet you with:

"Sorli and I are just here to make sure the mine is run proper."
"Wouldn't ever have expected to wind up living in a place like this, but the money's good."
"Don't bother the miners. They've got work to do."
You're out in the middle of nowhere, aren't you?
"Don't have to tell me twice. But then, I'm not the one that buried iron under these mountains."

If Sorli becomes Jarl, Pactur will become her steward and will greet you with:

"It's good that Sorli has finally been given some real authority."
"I'll see to it that Sorli is safe now that she's running Morthal."
"We left Sirgar in charge back at Stonehills. I hope that wasn't a mistake."

Quest-Related DialogueEdit

Payment DeliveryEdit

Do you own the mine?
"No, and before you ask, it's not for sale."
I wasn't asking.
"I'm just protecting Bryling's investment. She's the owner, even though we're the ones here doing all the work. She's already come down hard on us for missing shipments. Likely to do it again, since we're late."
Do you get many offers?
"Well, no. But that's not the point. Bryling owns the mine, and she's not selling. We make her some decent coin running this place. Keeps her living well in Solitude. At least, when we can get shipments to her. We're late on the last one. I expect her to start breathin' fire any moment now."
Is there any way I can help?
"You could take word to her that there'll be a shipment soon. Buy us some time and keep her off our backs. In exchange, I'm willing to let a few ingots go missing. Maybe more than a few."
Can't you reason with her?
"Can't do that and keep an eye on things here at the same time. But... You could take word to her in Solitude, let her know it'll be coming soon. I'd make it worth your while. No one would notice a few missing ingots out of the next shipment."

You can then offer to help or decline:

I'll go see Bryling for you.
"You're doing me quite a favor. I won't forget it. I'm sure she'll be angry. Brace yourself."
Maybe some other time.
"Won't be 'some other time' at this rate."


"Pactur's life revolves around Sorli. He assists with running the mine, which means doing all the work Sorli doesn't care to, and he feeds her ambitions in whatever way he can."


  • If the Stormcloaks take over Hjaalmarch as part of the civil war, Pactur's wife Sorli will be appointed the new Jarl and will move to Morthal. Although Pactur is meant to serve as her steward, she will only bring mine worker Teeba-Ei to Morthal, leaving Pactur in Stonehills. Despite staying there, his dialogue will change to suggest he is living in Morthal and serving as her steward.
