Assur is a Nord child and the son of Jarl Korir and Thaena and lives with them in Winterhold inside the Jarl's Longhouse. If the Dragonborn sides with the Imperials in the Civil War and completes Rescue from Fort Kastav he, along with his parents, will move to Brunwulf's House in Windhelm.
Assur is heavily influenced by his father and repeats his opinions about magic, but he appears generally neutral. He sometimes plays with Eirid, the only other child in the area, but he constantly makes Eirid play Hunt the elf, with her as the "elf," suggesting a mean streak influenced by his father's negative opinion about elves.
If the Dragonborn is known to be a mage, he will run up to them and ask them to make him invisible. He also asks the Dragonborn if they would like to play a game, where they could choose between tag or hide and seek. Doing so counts for the achievement Hero of the People. He will send hired thugs to "teach you a lesson" if his attitude toward you for whatever reason is infavorable.
