"My job's simple enough. The dead don't really complain much."


Helgird is a priestess of Arkay who can be found in the Hall of the Dead in Windhelm.


During the quest "Blood on the Ice", she is questioned by the Dragonborn. She tells the that the victim's coinpurse was still on her person which shows that the murder was not a robbery. She takes the corpse into the Hall of the Dead to prepare it for burial. She then tells them that the slash marks on the victim's body were from a curved blade used by the Nords for embalming the Dead.
