Dagur is the Nord innkeeper of The Frozen Hearth in Winterhold. Haran is his wife, and together they have a daughter, Eirid. While Haran feels less compelled to dig into Ranmir's past, Dagur would like to see the drunk get back on his feet, and for someone to find out what happened to Ranmir's former lover.

He wears the standard barkeeper's clothes and a pair of shoes. He wields an iron dagger and carries a selection of common loot and gold.

His greetings:

"Let me know if you need anything. We're here to provide."
"If there's anything you need, just let me know."
"If you've business with the College, you're welcome to stay here. It's where most of our business comes from, in fact."
"Unlike some folks here in town, we have nothing against the College or the people that come and go."
"Don't worry about Nelacar. He has a permanent room here at the Inn, but he keeps to himself and doesn't cause any trouble."

If the Imperials take Winterhold he gets new greetings:

"Turns out who runs Winterhold doesn't change much. Can't say I'm surprised."
"I won't complain about Korir being gone, but I don't expect things to really be any different."

When spoken to:

What can you tell me about Winterhold?
"I'm afraid there's not much to be said. Winterhold is hardly what it used to be. You can talk to Birna if you need to buy anything. She doesn't have much, but could certainly use the coin. And then there's our little inn. Most of the business we get is from folks here to visit the College, though even that's dried up some."
I overheard something about a College.
"That's right. College of Winterhold, just north of town. Hard to miss."

Quest-Related DialogueEdit


When the town is under siege, he says:

"What's going on out there? What happened?"

The Black StarEdit

When asked about an elven mage who studies stars, during The Black Star:

Is there an elven mage here that studies stars?
"The mages are up in the College. You can ask them, if they'll let you in. Then again, Nelacar might know. He's an old-timer from the College, but he has a room here."

Drowned SorrowsEdit

Anything around here that needs doing?
"Well, not exactly. Listen, we're friends, right? I wondered if I could ask a favor of you."
Sorry, not interested.
"Ah. Well, some other time, perhaps."
What can I do for you?
"It's about Ranmir. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with him being here all the time. He mostly keeps to himself, and so far he's been able to pay. I just hate to see what's happened to him. He hasn't always been like this, you know. Drunk, I mean."

Offering to help will lead to:

What did he used to be like?
"Oh, he was a different person. Happy, outgoing... Like anyone who's in love."
What's this got to do with me?
"Well, I'm getting to that. Just let me explain."
So what happened to him?
"See, Ranmir was involved with a pretty young woman named Isabelle Rolaine. The two of them were very happy together, I thought. One day, she just disappeared. Ranmir was convinced she'd run off with someone else, leaving him behind. He turned to drinking, and what's left of him is what you see here every day."
What can be done about it now?
"I'm not sure. I hoped that maybe if she could be found, if he had some sort of explanation, that maybe he could put himself back together. I'm in no position to go searching for her, but perhaps you could."


When you first enter The Frozen Hearth, he can be seen having a conversation with Nelacar:

Nelacar: "I'm sorry, could you describe the smell?"
Dagur: "Like some horrible monster was turned inside out, then exploded. What did you do?"
Nelacar: "It was a minor miscalculation. I've already corrected it for future experiments."
Dagur: "This, this is why people have a problem with your college, Nelacar."

Dagur will often converse with customers and family around the inn:

Dagur: "I understand Korir has been complaining about our customers again."
Haran: "What of it? It's our inn, and they cause him no harm."
Dagur: "I believe he was suggesting their presence causes him harm."
Haran: "Well, then he's welcome to eat and drink at home, isn't he?"

Haran: "I understand Eirid's been playing 'Hunt the Elf' again."
Dagur: "It's just children playing, Haran. I wouldn't fret over it."
Haran: "I'm not 'fretting.' I don't want Eirid playing those sorts of games!"
Dagur: "All right, all right. I'll speak to her."

Dagur: "Are we running low on mead?"
Haran: "No. Even Ranmir can only drink so much." or "No, without Ranmir around we're running out of stock far less often than we used to."
Dagur: "Let's just keep an eye on the supply. It's such a chore to restock."
Haran: "I suppose that's a benefit to having so few customers."

Dagur: "Is everything well, Nelacar?"
Nelacar: "Oh yes, quite fine. My accommodations here continue to be just what I need."
Dagur: "There hasn't been any... problems?"
Nelacar: "Are you referring to your other customers? No, everything is quite alright. I expect a little animosity now and then."
Dagur: "I see. Well, let me know if things get out of hand"

Nelacar: "I say, you didn't hear any loud noises last night? No, ahh... explosion sounds?"
Dagur: "No, I certainly didn't! Is there any reason you're asking me?"
Nelacar: "No, certainly not. A small experiment may have gone awry, but clearly with no discernible consequences."
Dagur: "I... see. And is this something I need to worry about in the future?"
Nelacar: "Oh, I certainly hope not! That would be quite unfortunate for my research."
