Not to be confused with Sinmur or Stomping Sinmur.
"The security in Whiterun is terrible. Shameful, is what it is."

Sinmir is a Nord warrior at The Bannered Mare in Whiterun. He is openly negative of the local guard and their commander.


Speaking with the Dragonborn, he complains about the city's security and the guards in Whiterun. He believes that the guards are lazy and undisciplined. He even says that Commander Caius is a "preening rooster", and that he could do the job himself blindfolded.


Hired MuscleEdit

Sinmir is a possible target needed to be intimidated by initiating a brawl.

Battle for WhiterunEdit

He becomes Guard Captain of the Whiterun Guard if the Stormcloaks take over the city. His armor will be replaced with a full set of Stormcloak Officer Armor, minus the helmet.

Dampened SpiritsEdit

If Sinmir is the captain of the city guard, he will not attend the tasting ceremony.
