He met Fjori, a huntress, when she was 29 years old. The two battled, falling in love when Fjori broke his axe with her sword, and he dulled her sword with his shield. Shortly after, Holgeir was bitten by a venomous snake.
From the Akavir, Fjori obtained an elixir and saved Holgeir's life. Her love fully-restored, she too was bitten by the same snake after the elixir was used up, falling dead. Holgeir built a tomb for her, killing himself after its completion. 
- If the player is a high enough level, (60+) Holgeir will appear as a Dragon Priest, however Fjori will not, even if the character is level 60 or higher.
