Saerlund is the black sheep of his family, mainly because he opposes Ulfric Stormcloak. He states that he believes Ulfric only lusts for the throne. He does however acknowledge that the Stormcloak cause is just, in theory.
His mother stripped him of his heritage and his brother, Harrald Law-Giver, has all but disowned him for stating that while Ulfric's cause may be true, the man, is a lie.
When first approached, he accuses the Dragonborn of coming to gloat at him because he dared to speak his mind against Ulfric Stormcloak.
- "Come to gloat, have we? To poke fun at the jarl's youngest son?"
- "I can feel you laughing behind my back."
- "Did Harrald send you to taunt me?"

- If Riften falls to the Imperial Legion, he may still act as if he is under Stormcloak control and remain in Riften along with his brother when they should be exiled to Windhelm as the rest of the court.
