"A man of my station has many debts. I'm not much use at labor or learning, but I can throw a punch with the best of 'em."

Torvar is a Nord warrior and a member of the Companions who resides in Whiterun. He can be found within the Companions' headquarters, Jorrvaskr. He is a recent whelp to the Companions and is not taking well to the intensive training. 


Torvar is shown to be a drunk, with many of his comments concerned with drink. He is obviously more interested in getting drunk than in training or doing some work for the Companions. In a conversation between him and Athis, he states a preference for hammers and axes

At first glance, he acts friendly towards the Dragonborn. But as one progresses within the Companions' ranks, he becomes more sour, and possibly even jealous.


Torvar can be enlisted as a follower after completing Glory of the Dead.  However, he can be obtained earlier by dropping armor in front of him while he is walking. He then asks the Dragonborn if he can have the item. If the Dragonborn says "Consider it yours.", he becomes available after leaving the area and coming back.

The Dragonborn can marry Torvar if possessing an Amulet of Mara.

When wearing an Amulet of Mara after completing Glory of the Dead, Torvar will say "You're wearing Mara's amulet? You? I'd marry you. I'd marry you twice."

If Torvar should happen to die, the Dragonborn may receive an inheritance of around 200 GoldIcon from him via a courier.


His main skills, from highest to lowest:

Torvar resists arrest with the Dragonborn and fights without question, an uncommon trait amongst the rest of the Companions.

Quotes Edit

  • "The latest recruit, right? Wait, is that right?"
  • "Might head down to the Meadery later, see what they're brewing up. You can smell the honey on the wind."
  • "You're a talker, eh?"
  • "What do you want from me now?"
  • "I don't owe you money, do I?"


This section contains bugs related to Torvar. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  •  360   PC   Torvar might be found by Markarth.
  •  360   If Torvar dies before beginning the Companions questline, it's possible to later find his dead body laying on the floor of the living quarters of Jorrvaskr. NPCs finding his body there will only be heard saying "I'm going to find whoever did this!". After the Glory of the Dead quest is completed, Torvar will miraculously appear alive in the dining hall of Jorrvaskr. The resurrected Companion will be ready to follow the new Harbinger. This can also happen if he dies as a follower after the Glory of the Dead once the Dragonborn returns to Jorrvaskr.
  •  360   If encountered as part of a random encounter, he may remain at the scene of the battle and never return to Jorrvaskr.
  • Sometimes after dropping armor in his path, a general dialogue will be opened immediately. In order to fix this the Dragonborn must cancel the dialogue and speak to him again. This way the correct dialogue will appear regarding the armor that has been dropped.
  •  360   Even if Torvar is killed, he may respawn. His dead body will disappear.
  •  PS3   Sometimes he attack the Dragonborn for no apparent reason and will not stop unless killed.

    • Then i get to Morthaal and receive a letter of inheritance from Torval, informing me of his death.  Ha.  I love this game. So much thought ...
    • Wait you got a letter from Torval informing you of his death? That makes perfect sense(!)
  • Torvar or Athis?
