"For a hundred lifetimes my heart has burned for revenge on Alduin; too long delayed!"
―Hakon One-Eye[src]


Hakon One-Eye was a Nord hero who helped overthrow the dragons in ancient times. He can be observed at the Throat of the World during the quest Alduin's Bane, and later found in the Hall of Valor in Sovngarde, during the quest Sovngarde.


Hakon, along with Gormlaith Golden-Hilt, and Felldir the Old, fought Alduin atop the Throat of the World during the Dragon War.

After Gormlaith Golden-Hilt was killed by Alduin, Felldir the Old used the Elder Scroll to banish Alduin before he could stop them. The use of the Elder Scroll created a time wound that remains to the present day.



Hakon helps the Dragonborn defeat Alduin in the main questline. Upon completion of the quest, Hakon One-Eye can be summoned to aid the Dragonborn in Tamriel with the Call of Valor shout.


Hakon One-Eye

Battle ready

  • "Through fire and time, the terror has lived. No more, I say! I've set my heart on terrible deeds, death's grim art!"
  • "Stand fast! The fell worm's death is ours at last, the light returns!"
  • "I'll look for you, friend, when at last you return to Shor's hall. The honor will be ours when you rejoin the ranks of Sovngarde."
  • "Lead me into battle!"
  • "What is it you need, Dragonborn?"
  • "It is glorious to battle once again in Tamriel!"
  • "Feel the bite of my axe!"
  • "I shall sing of thee in Sovngarde."


  • Hakon's voice actors are different in the Time Wound and in Sovngarde.
    • This could be to show that he has aged between the banishment of Alduin and his arrival to Sovngarde.
  • According to Miraak, Hakon and the other ancient Nord heroes pleaded with Miraak to aid them in defeating Alduin, however he refused and eventually rebelled against the dragons himself.
  • Hakon was voiced by Paul Ganus.
  • It is unknown whether or not Gormlaith is Hakon's actual sister or not, even though Gormlaith does refer to Hakon as her "brother." It may be that she was referring him as her "shield-brother" and not an actual blood-relative.
