He is also Igmund's uncle and assists him in running his administration. He manages the household, serves as the treasurer and commands the palace guards. He will also offer the Dragonborn the option to buy Vlindrel Hall and optional decorations once the Jarl approves. If given the Stallion's Potion, he will be thankful for the discretion, hinting that he has some form of erectile disfunction.
- After initially inquiring about the house for sale, if the player character does not have enough gold, the option is then erased and Raerek will spout canned dialogue. This can be fixed using the console command "setstage favor250 20", then talking to the Jarl. He will make you a Thane, and Raerek will then allow you to purchase the house.
- After completing the mission given by the Jarl and asking him if there is anything else you could do, immediately speak to Raerak. However, if instead you turn in the reward from the second bounty he gives you BEFORE talking to Raerak, the option to purchase a house will disappear.
