The building was originally home to a great warrior named Vundheim from the early Fourth Era. When he died in 4E 38 his son, Deroct, lit a candle above the hearth in his honor. Since that day, the candle has never gone out and as such the inn owes its name to this phenomenon.
A serial killer known as the Butcher killed Friga Shatter-Shield, daughter of the Tova Shatter-Shield. After Susanna the Wicked, a bar maid of the inn, is murdered after leaving work for the night, the Dragonborn is recruited by the Windhelm Guard and the Jarl's steward to give the victims justice. During their search, the Dragonborn learns that the Butcher followed Susanna as she left the inn, murdering her in a nearby cemetery. The clue inevitably lead the Dragonborn to Tova, the mother of the previous victim. From Tova, the key to Hjerim can be obtain, Hjerim being Friga's home before her death.
If Nilsine Shatter-Shield is killed for Muiri, Tova commits suicide. Her corpse can be found on the floor in the upper levels of the hearth, accompanied by a letter, explaining that the death of her twin daughters led to her take her own life.
