Joining the Blades
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.
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."
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.

- "You're a talker, eh?"
- "What do you want from me now?"
- "I don't owe you money, do I?"
