At noon he once again chops wood, and at 2pm he carries the wood to the [[Skyrim:Forge|forge]] outside the [[Skyrim:Blacksmith Quarters|Blacksmith Quarters]]. At 4pm he finally enters Candlehearth hall and will spend the rest of his day in the kitchen area, cooking, relaxing, or wandering around.

He will also quickly reveal to you his opinion of the [[Skyrim:Imperial Legion|Imperial Legion]]: ''"When I'm cutting wood, I pretend there's an Imperial soldier's head on the stump."''
