"Protect yourself right -- buy armor from Grelka."

Grelka is a Nord who lives in Riften. She trains Light Armor at the Expert-level and serves as a merchant of armor and weapons. During the day, she sells her wares at a booth in the center of town. She sleeps at Haelga's Bunkhouse.

Background and personalityEdit

Grelka is not originally from Skyrim, and wants to leave due to the political turmoil, Civil War, and the reappearance of the dragons. She sells goods in Riften, hoping to earn enough money to eventually leave Skyrim.

Grelka is prejudiced against Argonians, as is evident in her treatment of Madesi. In the evenings, before he goes to sleep in Beggar's Row, Madesi goes to the Bunkhouse, where he is often harassed by Grelka; she calls him "green-skin" and mocks his inability to shut his mouth when he chews, due to his skull structure.


Grelka serves as an Expert-level trainer in Light Armor. GoldIcon Grelka earns from training sessions enters her spending limit reserve for her stall. So, after training with her, she can then buy more goods with that money.

Stealing from Grelka may prompt her to send hired thugs after the thief.

In the Special Edition, Grelka will offer a small quest that involves the Dragonborn picking up a package in Windhelm. After they have completed the quest, Grelka will be available as a candidate for marriage.


  • "You gonna stare all day or buy some armor?"
  • "Come on, come on. The sooner you buy, the sooner I can get drunk."
  • "You gonna buy something, or just here for training? Otherwise, move on!"
  • "Buy some armor and live to tell about it."
  • "Come back when you're ready to spend more gold! Goodness knows I could use it."
  • "Looking to stay alive? Why take a chance?"


Grelka "Oh, Haelga!...There you are. Your special shipment just came in from Hammerfell on the Khajiit caravan."
Haelga "Oh, good. I want to try it on as soon as possible."
Grelka "'Try it on'? What do you need a leather harness for anyway?"
Haelga "It's [pause] a religious thing."
