Olfand in Nord Winds, Bruma

Olfand is a Nord smith and the proprietor of the weaponry store Nord Winds in Bruma. Besides selling weapons and armor, Olfand offers repair services and basic training in Light Armor. His wife, Skjorta, is a clothier selling her wares from Nord Winds as well.

Although his wife's excessive drinking and embarrassing behavior is the talk-of-the-town, Olfand can't be bothered and is rather hardworking, even if he does share his wife's drinking habits to some extent. He wakes up at 6am and after strolling around the basement, he opens the shop at 8am. Olfand then offers his various services till 8pm, then closes up shop and wanders around the main trading room until 10pm. At this time Olfand either sets off to find his wife, Skjorta, or visits Olav's Tap and Tack for two-hour dinner. Then he enjoys his free time till the midnight.

As a smith he wears blacksmith's apron and blacksmith's pants with clogs and also carries a small amount of gold and his shop key.


When you meet him for the first time, he will introduce himself and the Nord habits he shares with his wife:

"I'm Olfand, the Light Armor trainer. Skjorta and I run North [sic] Winds. Please excuse us. We had a little drink-up last night. Still a little muzzy."
"Just like Skyrim, except for all the tight-ass Heartlanders around. All work and chapel... no wonder they're so sour."


Olfand and Skjorta's behavior is not popular among their fellow citizens. Fjotreid will share his disappointment when asked about Bruma:

"I work hard. Folks like Skjorta and Olfand give us Nords a bad name, drinking and carrying on until all hours."

Bruma's denizens can be heard commenting on Skjorta's antics and Olfand's inability to deal with them:

"Someone needs to get Skjorta under control. You'd think Olfand would be the one to do it."
"Olfand really has his hands full with Skjorta. I don't know how he has time for business."
"Poor Olfand. I don't know how he manages to live with Skjorta."

To which others will reply:

"She's a disgrace to our whole city. Poor Olfand."
"He keeps busy. Repairing weapons, training light armor techniques, keeping track of Skjorta...."
"He's sure got his hands full, between smithing and training in light armor. I don't know how he does it."

The townsfolk can also be heard asking each other:

"Can you believe how Skjorta acts?"
"It's awful. I feel terrible for her husband. He must be so ashamed."

Despite it all, others will also recognize his smithing and training skills, asking each other:

"How does Olfand manage to be a smith, trainer, and babysitter?"
"Isn't Olfand amazing? He's an excellent smith and good at teaching light armor skills."

To which others will reply:

"I don't know how he does it. It's no wonder he spends so much time at the Tap and Tack, though."
"He's a saint. Sure, he spends a bit of time at the Tap and Tack, but you can't blame him."


  • Olfand should sleep between 12am and 6am, but as the door to the bedroom is owned by the GenericOwnerFaction, of which neither he nor his wife are a part, he can't access it.
