"You still need to prove yourself, whelp."
―Skjor[src]

Skjor is a Nordic member of the Companions and one of The Circle as well as a Werewolf. According to dialogue between various Companions, Skjor is one of the highest-ranked members of The Circle, quite possibly next to Kodlak Whitemane.

He carries a Skyforge Steel Sword and is equipped with Wolf Armor.

Background

Before becoming a Companion, he fought in the Great War against the Third Aldmeri Dominion before becoming critically injured in the fighting. After he recovered from his injuries, he became a sellsword for hire across Skyrim, and eventually joined the Companions.

Quests

Interactions

Proving Honor

During the Dragonborn's induction into the Companions, Skjor sends the Dragonborn to Dustman's Cairn with Farkas to recover a fragment of Wuuthrad.

The Silver Hand

During the Proving Honor quest, the Dragonborn learns Skjor and the other members of the Circle are werewolves. Shortly after their initiation into the Circle, Skjor helps the Dragonborn become a werewolf as well. However, he is killed by the Silver Hand when he ventures into one of their strongholds to scout it out for the Dragonborn and Aela.

Conversations

Taking the mantle

Kodlak: "Tradition is very important to me, son."
Skjor: "To me as well. I think we don't see the same tradition at play here."
Kodlak: "If you want to lead this pack when I'm gone, you have to see farther. Look closer."
Skjor: "Well which is it? Look farther or closer?"
Kodlak: "Come on now, boy, you know what I meant..."
Skjor: "You speak in riddles sometimes."
Kodlak: "I don't mean to confuse you."
Skjor: "It's not confusing... just frustrating."
Kodlak: "You're a strong warrior, Skjor. Your heart is fiery and that serves you well in battle."
Skjor: "Thank you, Harbinger."
Kodlak: "But even the bravest of men consider their actions. I want you to survive long enough to take the mantle."
Skjor: "Don't worry about me."

Standing ground

Skjor: "Heard you had a bit of trouble near Solitude last week."
Njada: "Just those same ruffians I was bringing in for the Shatter-Shields. So much wasted breath in that crew."
Skjor: "I'm imagining you just standing your ground and letting them tire themselves out."
Njada: "I'm telling you, it works. Let them ring their own ears on my shield, then scoop them up off the ground."
Skjor: "We all have different means to glory, Stonearm. Well done."

Bad grip

Skjor: "I've got a bad grip on my shield, could you take a look at it?"
Njada: "I'm a warrior, not a blacksmith."
Skjor: "Can't you just tell me if the grip is bad?"
Njada: "If Eorlund made it, it's more likely you're gripping it wrong. Find me tomorrow and we can go over it."

Foolish younglings

Skjor: "All these younglings scampering around."
Aela: "Worried one of them is going to take your place?"
Skjor: "Some of them might try. But that's not what I'm worried about."
Aela: "What then?"
Skjor: "That they might get themselves killed."
Aela: "By you?"
Skjor: "They should be so lucky."

Tonight's hunt

Skjor: "Are you prepared for tonight's hunt?"
Aela: "I've been thinking we need to be more... discreet."
Skjor: "There's nothing wrong with what we're doing."
Aela: "You know the old man doesn't like it. Let's just not be too obvious."

  •  PC   360   PS3   Skjor may still be found alive after being killed in the quest The Silver Hand. He will continue to state that the Dragonborn still needs to prove his or herself, even after reaching the noble rank of Harbinger. He will wander around Jorrvaskr and act just like he did when he was alive. This may or may not be due to Skjor being part of a different faction, causing him to re-spawn when his character should die during the quest. Certain important characters re-spawn after being dead for one game month. In addition, he can also be found during a random encounter in the wilderness with a few other companions. He has been found both fully functional, and sometimes stuck in the ground, making no actions, but he can be interacted with. It is likely that after this encounter, he can be found once again in Jorvasskr, and will be able to give quests regarding "Speak to the Companions Leaders for work". Skjor can also be found wandering Skyrim without his shoes after being killed during "The Silver Hand" quest.
