At age 29, she met Holgeir, a warlord. The two battled, falling in love when Fjori broke his axe with her sword, and he dulled her sword with his shield. Shortly after, Holgeir was bitten by a venomous snake.
Fjori obtained an elixir from the Akaviri and saved Holgeir's life. Her love fully-restored, she too was bitten by the same snake after the elixir was used up, falling dead. Holgeir built a tomb for her, killing himself after its completion.
Involved in the quest "A Love Beyond Death." Fjori appears as a draugr, summoned by Lu'ah Al-Skaven, a Redguard necromancer in Ansilvund. She wields a two-handed greatsword, as she did in life. After Lu'ah is defeated, Fjori appears alongside Holgeir as a ghost, and reward the Dragonborn with Ghostblade before disappearing.
