- "Have you seen my mother? I'm still waiting for her to come home."
- ―Virkmund after "Laid to Rest"
Virkmund is a Nord child who lives in Morthal with his family.
Virkmund's father is Thonnir and his mother is Laelette. He can be found in Thonnir's House.
Like his father, he believes that his mother has abandoned them to join the Stormcloaks, but the events of the quest "Laid to Rest" contradict this belief.
- "Papa says that I shouldn't keep waiting. Why not? Mama has to come home some time."
- "Who are the Stormcloaks, and why would mama want to spend time with them instead of me?"
- He will ask the Dragonborn to make him invisible if a spell is cast near him. Whether or not the Dragonborn actually does so has no consequence.
