The Northwatch Prisoners can be found in the northeastern part of Northwatch Keep. All three are locked inside separate cells and merely function as supposed cell mates when Thorald Gray-Mane spawns in the interrogation chamber as part of the related quest.

All three prisoners wear simple clothing, a roughspun tunic with a pair of footwraps.
