|Uthgerd the Unbroken|
|Location||The Bannered Mare, Whiterun|
In the past, Uthgerd attempted to join the Companions, but accidentally killed the boy she was set against. Thus, she was not accepted into the Companions and bears a grudge against them which the Dragonborn can ask about.
The brawl itself is fairly easy regardless of character class and can be completed successfully at lower levels to earn the bonus money. If having trouble, it is possible run to regain health or use a healing spell despite what she says. If additional assistance is needed, it might be worthwhile to head down to Riften and clear out the bandits in The Ratway, as one of them, Gian the Fist, has the Gloves of the Pugilist, a pair of gloves which adds extra damage to unarmed attacks.
As a follower, Uthgerd is an extremely capable fighter wearing heavy armor and wielding two-handed weapons and bows. Her default equipment includes a steel greatsword and a set of steel plate armor (without a helmet). She wears any helmets given to her. Due to her heavy armor and two-handed great sword, she excels at close range melee combat.
Uthgerd the Unbroken is a potential recruit for the Blades.
She is a loyal follower, but only to a point. She won't steal for the Dragonborn, and if an innocent civilian is murdered, Uthgerd immediately attacks and will not relent until one or the other dies.
If an Amulet of Mara is equipped, the Dragonborn can marry Uthgerd. She can be both a follower and a spouse simultaneously. When married, Uthgerd opens a general goods shop and gives her spouse a 100 share of the profits each day. The 100 income generated through her shop accumulates daily, even if the Dragonborn does not visit her every day. She gives the if asked about the profit from the shop.
The Dragonborn can also buy things from, and sell things to, Uthgerd, but if she is also acting as a follower, she instead tries to sell the items traded with her back to the Dragonborn and does not offer her original wares.
Buying her steel plate armor from her seems to be the only way to remove it from her inventory, which is useful if the armor she has equipped has been upgraded, as it is heavy and appears to count towards her encumbrance. It costs approximately 2,000 to do so. After the wedding ceremony, if she goes back to wearing her default armor despite having upgraded armor given to her prior to the wedding, wait a day or so and she will begin wearing the better armor, and the steel plate armor can be purchased from her. After marriage, the steel plate boots and gauntlets can be pickpocketed from her, but not the armor, which shows 0% chance of success even while having a skill level of 100.
If Uthgerd dies, the Dragonborn receives an inheritance of 100-400 , minus the Jarl's tax. Her coffin will appear in Whiterun's Hall of the Dead. One exception to not receive a gold inheritance is to kill her on the sacrificial stone at Boethiah's Shrine.

Although Uthgerd starts out with a two-handed steel greatsword, her skill with two-handed weapons is only fair; instead, she is most skilled with one-handed weapons. She fights best using either a one-handed weapon/shield combo, or dual-wielding one-handed weapons combined with strong Heavy Armor to make up for the lack of a shield. Her skill with a bow is decent, allowing her to perform fairly well at long range combat (especially if equipped with higher-grade arrows), even though it isn't her primary strength.
A jester in Whiterun
Skulvar: "Well, sounds like you've had quite the journey, Uthgerd. But you were gone longer than usual. I got to thinking maybe you weren't coming back..."
Uthgerd: "You sound like my ma. Figured I was lying dead in a field somewhere, is that it?"
Skulvar: "Thought did cross my mind, yeah. War brewing, talk of a riot in Helgen, and now jesters? Skyrim's gone mad, girl. You need to be careful out there."
Uthgerd: "Careful, huh? Thanks, Skulvar. I'll remember that. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!"
- "Wanna hear a bit of Nord wisdom? You don't really know a woman until you've had a strong drink and a fistfight with her."
- "I got no quarrel with you, but I won't turn one down, neither."
- "Keep walking, soft-gut. I'm more woman than you can handle."
- "The heat of battle is the fire that forges the strongest blades. It's an old Nord proverb. That, and a true Nord never misses a chance to test her worth."
- "Yeah, whatever."
- If enlisted as a follower, Uthgerd's bed removes the 'Owned' title, allowing the Dragonborn to use it, and most items in her house are changed to 'Take', instead of 'Steal'.
