|Contract: Kill Helvard|
|Prerequisite||Contract: Kill Agnis|
|Faction||The Dark Brotherhood|
Helvard is the housecarl of Falkreath and may be found in the Jarl's Longhouse. If the player 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 dispose of him in a favorable manner.
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.
Return to Nazir for the reward.
If Siddgeir's Housecarl Helvard is dead before purchasing the Lakeview Manor plot of land in the Hearthfire DLC, this action will "cancel" out the chance to buy the deed from him or Nenya, even if the player is Thane. There is no current fix for this issue and the player will have to settle for the other two houses in Hearthfire. Making the Land Baron & Master Architect achievements impossible to attain.
- On PC, this can be worked around by changing the relationship rank of Nenya to 3 using "player.setrelationshiprank 19823 4". If it doesn't work, try using "player.setrelationship 19822 2" (Jarl) and "resurrect 1" on Helvard.
Do not complete the Dark Brotherhood quest Contract: Kill Helvard, if you intend to purchase the Hearthfire DLC.
