Narfi is a Nord beggar who lives in the ruins of his family home on the other side of the river in Ivarstead.


Narfi is not sane, and dresses in dirty rags. He has gone crazy because he awaits his sister, Reyda, who has been missing for a year. He still awaits her return as the local innkeeper, Wilhelm, explains.


The Straw that BrokeEdit

Narfi will ask if the Dragonborn can look for his sister and recommends speaking to Wilhelm concerning her whereabouts. Her corpse is in a nearby river.

Contract: Kill NarfiEdit

Narfi is the target of one of the contracts given by the Dark Brotherhood. If at a high level, it would be advised to finish Narfi's quest first, since his rewards are leveled. 


  • In Norse mythology Narfi is the name of the son of Loki and Sigyn, and the brother of Vali.
  • After the completion of his miscellaneous quest, he may say "My favorite drinking buddy, let's get some mead" in a normal voice.
  • If given a septim he will say "Oh, thank you! Divines bless your kind heart!" in a normal voice also.
  • Since it's never revealed who puts the Dark Brotherhood contract out on Narfi, his death could be attributed to someone coveting his land, or simply out of pity. 
  • Although rare, it is possible that Narfi will leave an inheritance to the Dragonborn after his death, even if the Dragonborn is the one to kill him.
