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


Narfi can be found in or near an abandoned shack in Ivarstead. Wait until after 6:00 P.M. when Narfi goes into the abandoned shack. Otherwise, if he is killed during the day, it may be seen and the Dragonborn will receive a bounty. Kill him in the abandoned shack to avoid these complications, then go back to Nazir to get 400–750 GoldIcon.


Your pathetic existence has come to an end, Narfi. "Oh... Oh no... Please, please... I ain't never harmed no one... Old Narfi just wants to be left alone..."

Die! Worm! "Oh... Oh no... Please, please... I ain't never harmed no one... Old Narfi just wants to be left alone..."

(Remain silent) "Do... do you want something? Look, if you ain't gonna talk, or spare no coin, just go away..."

Narfi will not defend himself as a result of any of these dialogue options, so if he is seen being killed, a bounty cannot be avoided.
