"Battle-Born is a name out of legend, sung in the songs of old and heard in deeds of valor for a hundred generations. "For Clan Battle-Born!" they cry in the mead halls. "First into the fray and last to quit their ale!"
―Olfrid Battle-Born[src]

Olfrid Battle-Born is a Nord magnate and the leader of the clan Battle-Born in Whiterun.



He is married to Bergritte Battle-Born and they together have three children: Jon, Idolaf and Alfhild Battle-Born. Alfhild has a child named Lars Battle-Born, who is Olfrid's grandson. His family owns Battle-Born Farm, located directly east of Whiterun.


Just like most members of the Battle-Born family he heartily dislikes the Gray-Mane clan, but doesn't dispute that they are one of the most respected clans in all of Skyrim.

He claims that the Battle-Born are rich due to their largely successful farm, and that the Gray-Manes are jealous of his clan's success, resulting in the feud.


Imitation AmnestyEdit

Olfrid asks the Dragonborn to save his dear friend Arn, alongside whom he fought in the Great War, by forging a new identity for Arn in the prison records.



  • "Olfrid, patron of the great Clan Battle-Born, a name I'm sure you know well."
  • "I'm as much a Nord as the next man, but I'm no fool. I don't live in the past like, those Gray-Manes."
  • "I hope the Empire is sending reinforcements to drive these heathens out of Whiterun."
  • "Clan Battle-Born's got a proud lineage in Whiterun, but unlike the Gray-Manes, we've also got wealth."
  • "Eorlund Gray-Mane's a stubborn fool.  Our friendship ended when he turned his back on the Emperor."



  • If the Dragonborn kills Alfhild, he may send hired thugs after the Dragonborn.
