Contract: Kill Helvard is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Helvard is the housecarl of Falkreath, and may be found in the Jarl's Longhouse. If the Dragonborn chooses to wait until night, he will eventually go to sleep in a room on the upper floor by himself. At that time, it's possible to enter the room, close the door, and kill him without alerting the guards.

Alternatively, if the Dark Brotherhood speech option is available, having him attack first should help avoid incurring a bounty, even when killing Helvard in front of guards.

After the contract has been completed, Nazir gives an amount of 750 GoldIcon.


You protect the Jarl. But who protects you? "And why would I... Oh. Oh! Guards! Guards, I need assistance!"

(Remain silent) "Yes, yes. What is it? We're all very busy here..."

    • The bug only really occurs if your caught doing it, as with most of the 'bad blood' you get from killing anyone. If you're discrete and steal...
