Kjeld is the leader of Kynesgrove and the most influential man in the settlement. He's also the owner of Steamscorch Mine. He lives with his wife Iddra, the innkeeper, and his son, Kjeld the Younger. In a dialogue with Roggi Knot-Beard, a good friend of his, Kjeld reveals that his marriage isn't as good as it used to be.
Tormir in Darkwater Crossing has bad relations with him for an unknown reason. Speculations about him being the father of her daughter might be the cause, as she speaks negatively of Hrefna's unknown father.
Letter from KjeldEdit
If the Dragonborn kills Tormir from Darkwater Crossing, a courier will deliver a letter sent from Kjeld stating he's glad she was taken care of and to collect a reward.
If the Dragonborn steals from Kynesgrove, Kjeld will send Hired Thugs after him/her as a consequence.
- A male vampire also named Kjeld appears in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The two seem to be unrelated other than sharing the name.
- Kjeld is voiced by Paul Ganus.
