Helgi was a character in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. She was the daughter of Hroggar, who lives in Morthal. She and her mother were burned to death in a tragic house fire of unknown cause, investigated in the quest Laid to Rest.
Life after death
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, since he had run off with Alva soon after the tragedy. However, during a game of ghostly "hide and seek," Thonnir's missing wife Laelette, a vampire, is found at Helgi's exhumed coffin, thus unfolding a new chapter in the girl's story. Helgi's exhumed coffin can be found west of the house, over a rocky hill.
After killing the master vampire in his lair, Helgi appears near the exit and thank the Dovakiin for 'making her mother feel better.' Then Helgi will forever disappear.
- Anise's letter probably refers to a different, unknown Helgi, as the letter states: "Renounce that boy of yours...," implying that she has a son or lover, which is impossible since this Helgi was a child when she died.
- Helgi is a male's name in Old Nordic as well as modern Icelandic. Prominently, the hero of the real-world Poetic Edda was named Helgi.
