"I'm no one special, just a miner who swings a pickaxe for his drinking money." ―Karl
Karl is an elderly Nord miner found in Dawnstar. He is involved with a Miscellaneous Quest which can lead to the Thane title being given to the Dragonborn.
Karl can be found working the
Smelter at the Iron-Breaker Mine, and drinking outside the Windpeak Inn at night.
Beitild: "Keep at it. We need to work twice as hard now that fat-headed Leigelf has declared war!"
"We're at war with Leigelf? Isn't he your husband?" Karl:
Beitild: "No he isn't! He's the enemy, and we are going to crush him."
"Drafted into a war, how could my life get worse?"
"Can't sleep no matter how much drink I put in me."
"I'm no one special, just a miner who swings a pickaxe for his drinking money."
Beitild thinks I drink on the job. Well, what does it matter if I do? Huh?" "Gods strike you down." (After killing Beitild)
