"If you love history, you're in the right place. Skyrim is steeped in it."
―Giraud Gemane[src]

Giraud

Giraud Gemane is the Breton Dean of History at the Bards College in Solitude, and the author of Songs of Skyrim and Songs of Skyrim: Revised. He also teaches Speech at Master level.

InteractionsEdit

Investigate the Bard's CollegeEdit

Asking any Bard in Skyrim about where they learned their craft will result in their pointing the Dragonborn towards Solitude, where they can potentially become a member of the College. Viarmo is the man spoken to before gaining admittance, which leads the Dragonborn to locate the last remaining copy of King Olaf's Verse.

Rjorn's DrumEdit

After the Burning of King Olaf, Giraud sends the Dragonborn to locate Rjorn's Drum. After returning the Drum, he increases the skills Block, Archery, One-Handed, Two-Handed, Smithing and Heavy Armor each by one point.

Tending the FlamesEdit

Giraud believes that King Olaf's Verse is in Dead Men's Respite, and speaks of this to the Dragonborn during the quest.

ConversationsEdit

Illdi's poemEdit

Giraud: "Pardon me, but I trust you've been working on your poem, on the classical heroes of Skyrim, yes?"
Illdi: "Why do we always focus on retelling the old stories? There are so many new stories being made, right now..."
Giraud: "Patience, Illdi. We study the heroes of the past so we can have better understanding of the heroes of today... and tomorrow."

Jorn's poemEdit

Giraud: "Pardon me, but I trust you've been working on your poem, on the classical heroes of Skyrim, yes?"
Jorn: "Yes sir, Professor Gemane! It's a war epic about Hoag Merkiller's last stand!"
Giraud: "I'm sure it will be fine, just don't be late."

Aia's poemEdit

Giraud: "Pardon me, but I trust you've been working on your poem, on the classical heroes of Skyrim, yes?"
Aia: "Must it be written? Poetry is so dull when it isn't set to music."
Giraud: "I'm sure it will be fine, just don't be late."

Note: the preceding conversations are never exchanged in-game, due to a bug.[2]

Giraud's studentsEdit

Viarmo: "How are your students coming along?"
Giraud: "Bunch of distractions, if you ask me. They just interrupt the rest of my work."
Viarmo: "I'm sorry to break it to you, Giraud, but students are an unfortunate necessity of a college. Do try to persevere."
Giraud: "Yes, Headmaster."
