Not to be confused with Helgi (Online) or Helgi Pine-Frost.

Helgi was a Nord child and the daughter of Hroggar, who lived in Morthal. She and her mother burned to death in a house fire set by Laelette, investigated in the quest Laid to Rest.

Life after demiseEdit

Helgi only exists as an innocent ghost, and is unaware of the gravity of the events involving her family. Many suspected her father, Hroggar, was to blame for the fire, as people had seen him stay with Alva soon after the incident, and suspected that he had murdered his family to be with her. However, during a game of ghostly "hide and seek" with Helgi, the Dragonborn will find Thonnir's missing wife, Laelette, and discover that she is a vampire. She will be found at Helgi's exhumed coffin, which can be located west of the house, over a rocky hill.

After killing the master vampire in his lair, Helgi will appear near the exit and thank the Dragonborn for "making her mother feel better." After this is said, she will vanish.


  • Helgi's coffin and exhumed grave disappears once the quest is completed, appearing as untouched flat ground instead. The grave will also not appear if "Laid to Rest" was not started.
