The Battle-Born Clan is one of the oldest clans in Skyrim, and shares a heritage of great warriors. Both the Gray-Manes and the Battle-Borns can trace their lineage back to Ysgramor and the Five Hundred Companions. In contemporary times, they are considered one of the wealthiest and most influential families in Whiterun, with titles and strong ties to the Imperial Legion.
The Battle-Borns were once "fast friends" with the Gray-Manes, another old clan in Whiterun, before the Civil War began. However, they are now bitter enemies, with the Battle-Borns loyal to the Empire, and the Gray-Manes supporting the Stormcloaks. Olfrid Battle-Born believes that the Gray-Manes detest his family because they envy their wealth.
