"I'm still trying to figure out why Skjor let you in in the first place."
―Njada Stonearm[src]


Njada Stonearm is a Nord and a member of the Companions. She can be found within the Companions' headquarters, Jorrvaskr, in Whiterun. She is an Expert-level trainer in Block.

Upon completion of the Companions' main plotline, Njada can be recruited as a follower and becomes a potential marriage candidate. She can be recruited into the Blades if the Dragonborn talks to Delphine while having her as a follower, or as a steward if the Hearthfire DLC has been installed.


Njada has an unpleasant attitude and uncaring disposition. She has few friends, which is what she prefers.[1]

She is initially offensive towards the Dragonborn, refuses to help, and will continue to make insulting comments. She will, however, become slightly more friendly towards the Dragonborn, sometimes calling them a "friend" once the Glory of the Dead quest has been completed.

After the Companions' quest line is completed, Njada may still make comments that indicate her displeasure at the Dragonborn's promotion, like saying "What guidance could you possibly offer me?" in a rude manner.


Take Up ArmsEdit

When the Dragonborn first enters Jorravskr, Njada will be in a brawl with Athis, which Njada wins.

Glory of the DeadEdit

After completing Glory of the Dead, Njada can be recruited as a follower. Once the Dragonborn is a member of the companions, she will offer Expert-level training in Block, up to level 75.

The Dragonborn can marry Njada. This is only possible after completing Glory of the Dead and if in possession of an Amulet of Mara.

With the addition of Hearthfire, Njada becomes a possible steward.


Njada has many skills similar to that of a thief.

Skill proficiencies from highest to lowest:


Whispers of intimacyEdit

Njada: "I've heard some rumors... about you and Skjor."
Aela: "And if you want to keep having ears, you'll pretend you didn't."
Njada: "Is it not allowed?"
Aela: "It's not exactly forbidden, but even so... it's not true. So that's that."

Steadfast defenseEdit

Aela: "How do you manage to hold your ground like that?"
Njada: "You have to remember, it's not about strength. It's about leverage."
Aela: "But strength doesn't hurt."
Njada: "Well, no. I'm just saying there's more to defense than muscle."

Standing groundEdit

Skjor: "Heard you had a bit of trouble near Solitude last week."
Njada: "Just those same ruffians I was bringing in for the Shatter-Shields. So much wasted breath in that crew."
Skjor: "I'm imagining you just standing your ground and letting them tire themselves out."
Njada: "I'm telling you, it works. Let them ring their own ears on my shield, then scoop them up off the ground."
Skjor: "We all have different means to glory, Stonearm. Well done."

Bad gripEdit

Skjor: "I've got a bad grip on my shield, could you take a look at it?"
Njada: "I'm a warrior, not a blacksmith."
Skjor: "Can't you just tell me if the grip is bad?"
Njada: "If Eorlund made it, it's more likely you're gripping it wrong. Find me tomorrow and we can go over it."
