"I was named after the sound a lion makes. You know: rrroooaaaarr! Really."


Hroar is a Nord orphan living in the Honorhall Orphanage in Riften, as one of the victims of the cruelty of the disastrously misnamed headmistress, Grelod the Kind.


Hroar claims his name was inspired by the roar of a lion. Although he has never seen a lion, he claims that his late mother told him this was the case. He goes on to say that he wants to be big and strong like a lion, when he grows up. He regrets that neither Grelod nor Constance Michel (if Hearthfire is not installed) will allow him to be adopted, claiming, "I'd be the best son ever."

Unlike most of the other adoptable children, he does not mention how he lost his parents. If Hearthfire is installed, he is one of the children who can be adopted by the Dragonborn.


Grelod "Those who shirk their duties will get an extra beating. Do I make myself clear?"
Samuel "Yes, Grelod."
Runa "Yes, Grelod."
Hroar "Yes, Grelod."
Francois "Yes, Grelod."
Grelod "And one more thing! I will hear no more talk of adoptions! None of you riff-raff is getting adopted. Nobody needs you, nobody wants you. That, my darlings, is why you're here. Why you'll always be here, until you come of age and get thrown into that wide, horrible world. Now, what do you all say?"
Samuel "We love you, Grelod. Thank you for your kindness."
Runa "We love you, Grelod. Thank you for your kindness."
Hroar "We love you, Grelod. Thank you for your kindness."
Francois "We love you, Grelod. Thank you for your kindness."
Grelod "That's better. Now scurry off, my little guttersnipes."


  • If the Dragonborn ends the quest "Innocence Lost" by killing Grelod, he is (along with all of the other children) not at all sorry that she is dead, and makes no effort to summon the guard.
