"I just hope the war doesn't come to Riverwood. There's enough trouble in the world without those Stormcloaks stirring up more."

Sigrid is a Nord residing in Riverwood. She can be found wandering the town during the day or in her house at night.


She is married to Alvor, Riverwood's blacksmith, and with whom she has a daughter named Dorthe. She expresses worries that her daughter is not being "lady-like" with her love of blacksmithing being similar to that of her father's.


Rescue MissionEdit

Sigrid has been kidnapped and taken to Chillwind Depths. The Dragonborn need to get her back to Riverwood.


"Make yourself at home."

How do I get to Whiterun from here? "Just follow the road north. When you get to Honningbrew Meadery, turn left and the road will take you to the city gates. It's not far. We used to go to the market there every month or so, until the roads got so dangerous with the war and all."
What do you think about the war? "I just hope the war doesn't come to Riverwood. There's enough trouble in the world without those Stormcloaks stirring up more."

"Hmm hmm."


Alvor "Sigrid! We have company!"
Sigrid "Hadvar! We've been so worried about you! Come, you two must be hungry. Sit down and I'll get you something to eat."
Alvor "Now then, boy, what's the big mystery? What are you doing here looking like you lost an argument with a cave bear?"
Hadvar "I don't know where to start. You know I was assigned to General Tullius's guard. We were stopped in Helgen when we were attacked by...a dragon."
Alvor "A dragon? That's ridiculous. You aren't drunk, are you boy?"
Sigrid "Husband. Let him tell his story."
Hadvar "Not much more to tell. The dragon flew over and just wrecked the whole place. Mass confusion. I don't know if anyone else got out alive. I doubt I'd have made it out if not for my friend here. I need to get back to Solitude and let them know what's happened. I thought you could help us out. Food, supplies, a place to stay."
Alvor "Of course! Any friend of Hadvar's is a friend of mine. I'd be glad to help however I can. [to player] Like I said, I'm glad to help however I can. But I need your help. We need your help. [gift options open] The Jarl needs to know if there's a dragon on the loose. Riverwood is defenseless...You need to get word to Jarl Balgruuf to send whatever soldiers he can. If you do this for me, I'll be in your debt."
Dorthe "Hadvar, did you really see a dragon? What did it look like? Did it have big teeth?"
Sigrid "Hush, child. Don't pester your cousin."
Alvor "Well, I'd better get back to work. You two make yourselves at home."


  • "I'm spoken for you know, so don't get any ideas." —Greeting if the Dragonborn is male
  • "You're pretty, I'll give ya that. Just stay away from my husband Alvor." —Greeting if the Dragonborn is female
  • "He would dote on her so much. Let her work the forge and everything. I miss him so." —If Alvor dies


  • Sigrid is friendlier to the Dragonborn if they side with Hadvar over Ralof during the quest "Unbound."
