"An Amulet of Mara? You're not married? [surprised chuckle] Surprising."
Interested in me, are you? "I am. I'd be glad to stand by your side until the Divines take us, i..if you'll have me."

As he already has a set, Calder will not equip steel armor, even if it has been upgraded at a workbench, though he will equip helmets. He will, however, equip unique sets of steel armor, such as General Tullius' Armor, after it has been improved.

This section contains bugs related to Calder. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- With Dawnguard installed, when armed with a crossbow, Calder will rapidly raise and lower the weapon, preventing him from hitting a target.
- Staves given to him may duplicate, and he will use both of them. However, if one is taken from him, the other disappears.
- As is the case with many followers, if given a bow by the Dragonborn, Calder may still use the hunting bow in his initial inventory.
- Calder may greet the Dragonborn as a stranger when entering Hjerim.
- There is a rare glitch, where if he is the target for the Dawnguard quest Rescue, he will call the Dragonborn "my love" even if the Dragonborn is male and/or not married.
- When blocking and an enemy does a Power Attack, Calder may use the same sound file as a female Nord getting hurt. This does not happen if the enemy uses normal attacks while Calder is blocking.
