"Working hard gives a man reason for drinking hard. Well, that and putting up with a wife like mine."


Horgeir is a Nord lumberjack and can be found in Dragon Bridge. He owns the local lumber mill and, according to his wife, is a lazy, good-for-nothing drunk. He says that his wife is spiteful and unloving.


He will buy any firewood given to him for five GoldIcon per piece.

After the Dragonborn steals the Dragon Breath Mead, they can choose to give the mead back to Horgeir instead of his wife, to which he awards them with a Block skill increase. Olda, his wife, will offer to pay the Dragonborn to steal his favorite drink, Dragon's Breath Mead, from his hidden stash.
