Not to be confused with Fraki.
"Well, look at this. Another city rat crawled outside the walls. I don't suppose you've come up here to tell old Froki about your supposed Divines?"
―Froki Whetted-Blade[src]


Froki Whetted-Blade is an Elder Nord hunter residing in his shack with his grandson, Haming.


Froki is reclusive by nature and prefers to keep away from city folk. He vehemently rejects Alessia's Cyrodilic pantheon of the Eight Divines, calling them stolen or imposter gods. Rather, he follows the Ancient Nordic Pantheon with a particular liking towards Kyne, the warrior-widow of Shor.

He is also the father of Torolf, a resident of Helgen who was killed during Alduin's attack. Torolf's son, Haming, was left an orphan, and Froki took it upon himself to care for his grandchild.


Kyne's Sacred TrialsEdit

When questioned about Kyne's sacred trials, Froki will explain:

"It's an old Nord Tradition, a test to prove your worth in the eyes of Kyne. Show that you're a hunter and no simple butcher. Kyne teaches us to respect the beasts and blesses the hunter who will face their champions. True Nord hunters are those who survive the Trials."

He then tasks the Dragonborn to hunt seven spectral creatures as part of the trial.  Any of which can easily be dispatched with a shot or two from an enhanced dwarven crossbow and a steel bolt.

  1. Guardian Skeever
  2. Guardian Wolf
  3. Guardian Mudcrab
  4. Guardian Bear
  5. Guardian Mammoth
  6. Guardian Sabre Cat
  7. Guardian Troll

Froki's BowEdit

During the Sacred Trials, Froki's Bow can be found in Graywinter Watch. Returning it will cause him to reminisce about the past, but he will refuse to accept it and instead allows the Dragonborn to keep it.

"I don't believe it. I made that bow myself. Been through some messes with it, let me tell you. You know what? I want you to keep it. My great hunts are behind me, but yours are yet to come."


If he is killed before travelling to Sovngarde, he can be met there in the mists. He is also one of the few characters that may be killed during this quest.


  • Although his shack is home to both Froki and Haming, it has only one bed.
  • Despite the fact that he claims to be a hunter, Froki is never seen outside the hut.
  • According to Haming, Froki cannot cook.
  • He is the only non-hostile character in Skyrim that still worships the Nordic pantheon.
