Uthgerd the Unbroken

Uthgerd the Unbroken is a Nord warrior who lives in Whiterun. Talking to her about her attitude will annoy her and result in an option to challenge her to a brawl for a 100 septim bet. She is available as both a follower and a marriage candidate once you have defeated her in hand-to-hand combat.

She owns a house in town, but she spends all of her time sitting in the Bannered Mare, surrounded by the other regulars and bard Mikael. She only ventures outside at the conclusion of the Companions quest Blood's Honor, when she will be in the crowd gathered in front of Jorrvaskr after the Silver Hand attack. She will always be in her house during and immediately after the Battle for Whiterun.

She wears a set of steel plate armor, including matching boots and gauntlets. She carries a steel greatsword, a spare belted tunic, a key to her house, and a selection of common loot and gold.

Fight! Fight!Edit

You think you can take me on?
"And why not? I could beat anyone in this city, bare-handed. A hundred gold says I knock your hide to the ground."
I've got better things to do.
"Pfft. Snowback."
You're on. (Brawl - 100 gold)
"Just fists. No weapons, no magic... no crying. Let's go!"

Should you accept her bet without 100 gold in your possession:

"Why don't you come back when you actually have a hundred gold?"

When you have defeated her, she will get up and say:

"Now that's what I call a punch. You got me."

When she hands you the prize, she will admit:

"You're no liar. Best fight I've had in years. There you are. You ever need another blade at your side, just ask. Wouldn't mind seeing how you handle a few trolls."


Whenever you approach her, she might say:

"Want to hear a little Nord wisdom? You don't really know a woman 'til you've had a strong drink and a fistfight with her."
"Keep walkin', softgut. I'm more woman than you can handle."
"I got no quarrel with you, but I won't turn one down, neither."
"Think you can go blade to blade with me? You'd be dead in six seconds."
You must really love to fight.
"The heat of battle is the fire that forges the strongest blades. It's an old Nord proverb. That, and a true Nord never misses a chance to test her worth."
Sounds like you've got a grudge.
"You been talking to those Companions? "Too hot-headed," they cried. Weak, pathetic cowards, the lot of them!"
Why'd the Companions reject you?
"It wasn't my fault! I told them over and over that it was an accident! They wanted me to prove my worth, so they threw me up against a young whelp of a lad, hardly old enough to grow his first chin-hairs. I guess they thought a woman wasn't strong enough to hurt him. I didn't mean for him to die! Why would I want that? I just... lost control."

When exiting conversation with her:

"Yeah, whatever."
"Good. Chat time's over."


  • Uthgerd is in the CombatWarrior1H class, even though she is initially equipped with a two-handed weapon and her combat style is two-handed.
  • Her home will be free to use as soon as you have defeated her in a brawl, providing one of the earliest usable homes that is not faction-related. It contains one bed and thirteen items of storage; only a few containers are safe for storage. The door lock always resets when you leave Whiterun, so you will need to take her key via inventory trading as a follower to avoid being caught lockpicking.
  • There's an unused scene between Uthgerd and Skulvar Sable-Hilt, which would have been a means to start Delayed Burial. This was supposed to take place when you first approached Whiterun Stables:
Uthgerd: "By Ysmir, it's true. A jester - funny suit and all. Just north, by the Loreius Farm. Fool had a coffin in a cart, with a broken wheel. Like to see him laugh his way out [sic] that."
Skulvar: "Well, sounds like you've had quite the journey, Uthgerd. But you were gone longer than usual. I got to thinking maybe you weren't coming back..."
Uthgerd: "You sound like my ma. Figured I was lying dead in a field somewhere, is that it?"
Skulvar: "Thought did cross my mind, yeah. War brewing, talk of a riot in Helgen, and now jesters? Skyrim's gone mad, girl. You need to be careful out there."
Uthgerd: "Careful, huh? Thanks, Skulvar. I'll remember that. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Yeah, right..."


  • Due to her never sleeping in her own house, it's impossible to get the Lover's Comfort bonus unless she is made to move to one of your houses.
  • When attempting to brawl and defeating her, she may not pay the wager and refuses to become a follower. The brawl dialogue still persists.
  • Uthgerd may disappear while being used as a follower. This occurs at very inconsistent times. She does not die, does not return to Whiterun, and the game no longer thinks you have a follower. There is also a chance you are not going to be able to recruit another follower if she disappears, so make sure you save often if you want her as a follower.
  • She may also at times fully reset back to Whiterun. She does not retain any items given to her. ?
  • She may attack you for no apparent reason upon entering the Bannered Mare. If you are able to sneak and stay out of her sight until she stops pursuing you, she will no longer be hostile. This is due to her high aggression setting when you have committed zero-bounty crimes in Whiterun.
    • Commit a minor crime in Whiterun in front of a guard and then clear your bounty using the usual methods.
    •   Select her in the console, use setAV Aggression 0, then disable her, and enable her again.
