"I might be a woman, but I can crack rock with the best of them."

Sylgja is a Nord miner who resides at her house in the town of Shor's Stone. She works in the Redbelly Mine.


Her parents, Verner Rock-Chucker and Annekke Crag-Jumper, run the mining settlement Darkwater Crossing, due north of Shor's Stone. According to dialogue, she exchanges letters with them as often as she can.


Special DeliveryEdit

Sylgja explains that she recently injured herself in the mine, and thus cannot deliver her letters to her father in Darkwater Crossing. She asks the Dragonborn to bring the letters to him on her behalf. She promises a reward to them, and suggests that her father will probably have something for the Dragonborn to bring back. She will give the Dragonborn a necklace with a leveled value as reward for bringing all letters back and forth.


After the Dragonborn has delivered her satchel to her father, she becomes a candidate for marriage.

Hired MuscleEdit

Farkas might ask the Dragonborn to intimidate Sylgja and in order to do this they must win a brawl with her. This may be done even if the Dragonborn is married to her.


  • Sylgja says that her injury in the mine was healed by a priest of Mara on his way to Dawnstar. The priest mentioned is most likely Erandur, as he is the only priest of Mara in Dawnstar.
  • If the Dragonborn drops clothes, she will often ask if she can have it and tell the Dragonborn she will put it on right away. Instead of doing this, she will often do nothing and leave the clothing on the floor.
