For the Jarl of the same name, see Valdimar (Lore).

Valdimar is a Nord sorcerer in Hjaalmarch. He is appointed housecarl when the Dragonborn becomes the Thane of Hjaalmarch. He can be found at Highmoon Hall, or at Windstad Manor once the Dragonborn has bought the deed from the Jarl.


Valdimar can be asked to become a steward for a homestead or married. If the single beds on the second floor of the Main Hall are purchased, he will sleep in the bed on the left.

Valdimar can sometimes be seen patrolling the homestead perimeter approximately up to 100 meters from the homestead, often engaging in combat with the local bandits camped outside of the nearby Nordic Tomb Ustengrav.

Skills and Combat BehaviorEdit

At the beginning of a battle Valdimar casts Stoneflesh or Oakflesh with his weapon ready, then switches to Ice Spike. If he is critically wounded he uses Close Wounds or Healing to recover his health. Additionally, Valdimar can use Turn Undead and Lesser Ward.

  • Valdimar may not appear even if the Dragonborn is Thane. If player appears to have this bug, using the console command player.moveto xx00521D moves Dragonborn to his current location. To fix this, player is to open the console and type "prid xx00521D" without the quotations, then press enter, and type "enable" and press enter again. He should appear and talk to player, provided that Valdimar and Dragonborn are inside Highmoon Hall.
  • Valdimar may be found wandering around far from his designated home. He has been occasionally found outside of Whiterun and walking in Riverwood.
