Jeek of the River was Captain of the Jorrvaskr during the Return.[1] He and Ysgramor had grown up together, and the twenty-one Companions who composed his crew were Ysgramor's closest friends.[1][2] Ysgramor himself gave him his name.[2] He was the discoverer of the Skyforge, founder of Whiterun, and keeper of the original oath of the Companions, which was lost to time.[1] While other crews sought glory in conquest, his was the first to settle and serve as protector for the settlers who followed them.[1]
