Sond is a Nord bandit who can be found in the Eldergleam Sanctuary. During the related quest, he along with Asta, will warn you not to desecrate the Eldergleam, otherwise you will face consequences brought about by Kynareth.

He wears a belted tunic and a pair of boots. He carries a leveled one-handed weapon which can be up to elven in quality along with a small amount of gold.

Quest-Related DialogueEdit

Sond will greet you with:

"Welcome to Eldergleam Sanctuary, my friend. If you have any questions, speak to Asta."
"Kynareth humbles us with her beauty."

Once you show Nettlebane to Asta or strike the Eldergleam's roots with it, he'll change his tone:

"Don't come any closer. I don't want Kynareth to think I'm on your side."


  • Sond does not have a unique facial model, he instead uses the default male Nord face. He shares this quirk with numerous other NPCs, including Erikur, Briehl, Lynoit, Barknar, and many other generic NPCs.


  • If he is killed during The Blessings of Nature, his body will persist indefinitely due to missing stages in the quest script to track his death.
  • Despite being a unique NPC, he's incorrectly flagged to respawn in the game data.
