"Battle-Born is a name out of legend, sung in the songs of old and heard in deeds of valor for a hundred generations. 'For Clan Battle-Born!' they cry in the mead halls. 'First into the fray and last to quit their ale!'"
―Olfrid Battle-Born[src]

Clan Battle-Born is a non-joinable faction in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is one of the two major clans in Whiterun and has a feud with the Gray-Mane clan.

House of Clan Battle-Born

The Battle-Born Clan is one of the oldest clans in Skyrim, and shares a heritage of great warriors. In contemporary times, they are considered one of the wealthiest and most influential families in Whiterun, with titles[1] and strong ties to the Imperial Legion.[2]

They reside in their Clan House in the Wind District within Whiterun's walls. They also own a highly profitable farm outside Whiterun.

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.[1]



  • According to the Creation Kit, Idolaf and Alfhild are married and have Lars as common son, despite being siblings. This might be intentional because of the lack of other characters, or irrelevant as there is no dialogue that supports this.
  • According to the Creation Kit, Jon is actually the son of Idolaf with Bergritte; not Olfrid and Bergritte.
