"Hello. I'm Gisli, but you can call me Erikur's sister. Everyone does."

Gisli is a Nord citizen, and the sister of Erikur, who lives in Solitude.


Gisli is a noblewoman living with her brother, a Thane named Erikur, in Erikur's House. She strongly dislikes her brother and is often referred to as "Erikur's sister" rather than "Gisli" by others, which angers her.


Erikur's fortuneEdit

Erikur: "Sister, how is my fortune coming along?"
Gisli: "Profits continue to rise. The warehouse continues to bring in good revenues, and rent on your stores in the Well is acceptable."
Erikur: "I'm afraid 'acceptable' just isn't acceptable anymore. I'm sure they can spare a few more coins in monthly rent."
Gisli: "Yes, brother. I'm sure they'll agree it's a fair price to pay in order to avoid interacting with you on a daily basis."
Erikur: "Fair or not, they'll pay it, and that's all I need to care about. Bear that in mind, sister."

Raising the rentEdit

Erikur: "That clumsy maid at the palace spilled wine on my best suit. Sister, I believe it's time for a replacement."
Gisli: "I can commission one from the Radiant Raiment. It won't be cheap, but if you want the best, they're the only choice."
Erikur: "I swear, those scheming elves charge us twice what anyone else would pay."
Gisli: "Of course they do, brother. You keep raising their rent."


  • "Have you met my dear brother Erikur? The man's as trustworthy as a khajiit goldmonger."
  • "Quickly if you please. I'm quite busy running errands for my bastard of a brother..."
  • "...since Torygg's death, Falk Firebeard wields the true power in the Jarl's court. My brother is nothing more than a pompous little fop."
  • "Welcome to the center of the world... or at least my brother Erikur's world..."
  • "We'll speak again later. If we must..."
  • "I'll be sure to check 'Talk to random stranger' off my list of today's tasks..."


  • In the Creation Kit, one can see that she might have been intended to be, or become, Steward as she's in the Steward faction. It's possible that Erikur was meant to become Jarl, being in the Jarl faction, if the Stormcloaks win the Civil War.
  • There's an old Icelandic tale of three brothers named Gísli, Eiríkur and Helgi. It's possible that Gisli and Erikur were named after them, and there may originally have been supposed to be a third sibling.
