"Now, maybe I don't pick up a blade in Ulfric's name no more, but I still hold with his ideals. Skyrim is Nord land, and we ought to rule it. We don't need no help from the Empire on that count."

Solaf is a Nord general goods merchant in Falkreath.


A former Stormcloak soldier, Solaf now owns the local trade shop of Falkreath, Gray Pine Goods. He has a younger brother named Bolund.

Should the Dragonborn happen to kill Narri, they will later receive a letter from Solaf, stating that he knows that they have killed them, and wants to thank them for it. If talked to after receiving the letter, one will find out she was his rival, and that he wishes never to speak of it again.


  • "Well met. Unlike my brother, I've no dislike of strangers. Met lots of 'em while I was a Stormcloak."
  • "Don't mind Bolund. He's young and gets riled easily."
  • "Steal anything from my shop and you'll regret it."


  • Apparently, Solaf is courting Tekla, although no mention of such is made through in-game dialogue. When the Command Console or Creation Kit is used to examine Tekla's relation towards other characters, it is revealed that Solaf and Tekla are courting.
  • He references Stormcloak veteran.  
  • He concludes interactions with the Dragonborn with the above-quoted warning against stealing from the shop. Oddly, he continues to offer this warning even after the Dragonborn has invested in the shop, in which case one is considered a friend and allowed to take almost anything on display.
