Hroggar appears dazed and confused. His mind is focused on Alva, who he stays with, and doesn't care for his past family.
Hroggar once had a wife and a daughter, Helgi, but they both died caught in the flames of their burning house which burnt down to the ground.
Hroggar subsequently moved in with Alva who he protects with his life and cares for.
Laid to RestEdit
The Jarl of Morthal enlists the aide of the Dragonborn to first investigate the leftovers of his burned down house. Clues will lead to Alva's House. If entering her house during the night Hroggar will attack in his confused state. If you kill Alva and let Hroggar live he will have returned to his state before the incident. Hroggar explains that he was seduced by Alva and only reclaimed his own mind after she died and so released him.
Hroggar will buy any firewood brought to him.
- Attempting to pickpocket the Key to Alva's House from Hroggar can result in a glitch. If you fail, Hroggar will attack you and alert a guard, but the guard will take your side and kill Hroggar instead of reprimanding you. You will be free to loot the key from his body, and no bounty will be added either for murder or pickpocketing. This may be due to the fact that you must break into Alva's House in the quest "Laid to Rest".
