Working as a shop assistant he saved his money in the hopes of one day travelling the length and breadth of Skyrim, to see the land his Nordic forefathers hailed from. His research meant he was aware of the dangers Skyrim possessed to the unwary traveller, so he bought a sword in order to protect himself during his travels.
