Blood's Honor is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is a quest given by Kodlak Whitemane after he finds out about Aela the Huntress and the Dragonborn's conflicts with the Silver Hand, and after at least two miscellaneous quests received by Aela have been completed.

Kodlak Whitemane wants the Dragonborn to help him cure himself of his Lycanthropy by acquiring the heads of the witches that tricked the Companions.


Speak to Kodlak Whitemane

Aela the Huntress tells the Dragonborn that Kodlak Whitemane has found out about their conflicts with the Silver Hand. She says that Kodlak wants to speak with the latter privately.

Collect a Glenmoril Witch's Head

After talking to Kodlak, a map marker will be given for the location of the witches. The witches reside in a cave called Glenmoril Coven near Bilegulch Mine in the southwest corner of Skyrim. Upon entering the cave there will be several witches sporadically placed in the mine. The first one will be very close to the entrance.

(Optional) Wipe out the Glenmoril Witches

While the quest only requires the death of one of the Witches, it may be of benefit to kill all five. Later on after curing Kodlak of Lycanthropy, the Dragonborn may cure himself/herself, provided that a second head has been acquired. Afterwards, the quest Purity requires two more heads, as Vilkas and Farkas wish to be cured as well. The fifth head will remain unused as Aela will choose to remain a werewolf.

The death of Kodlak Whitemane

Upon return to Whiterun, several citizens can be noticed gathered around near the stairs leading to Jorrvaskr. Halfway up the stairs, Torvar and Aela the Huntress are found next to dead Silver Hand members. After entering the building, Vilkas seeks the Dragonborn out and asks where he/she was during the time of need. In the Dragonborn's absence, the Silver Hand attacked Jorrvaskr, managed to kill Kodlak and take off with all the fragments of Wuuthrad. Kodlak’s dead body is near the central fireplace, with Farkas and Njada Stonearm next to him. Vilkas claims that his death will be avenged, which ends the quest and immediately starts the next one, Purity of Revenge.
