The Snow-Shods are a wealthy and influential Nordic family that owns the Snow-Shod Farm near Riften. They reside in the Snow-Shod Manor, which is located near the northern gate of the city, between Aerin's House and Riftweald Manor.
Their family patriarch, Vulwulf Snow-Shod, is a veteran soldier who participated in the Great War. During this conflict, he met his bride-to-be, Nura, who was serving as a healer in the Imperial Legion at the time. Together, they have had three children: Asgeir, Lilija, and Unmid. Their daughter joined the Stormcloaks as a healer during the Civil War, and served in the army a few months before being killed in action by Imperial troops. According to dialogue with her family members, Lilija is deeply missed by all of them.
