Bjalfi the Contemptible

Bjalfi the Contemptible is a Nord warrior who until recently lived at Whitmond Farm and was married to Maeva the Buxom. Bjalfi recently abandoned the farm and his wife, taking with him the Rockshatter, a precious family heirloom given to the couple by Maeva's father.

When you meet the deserted wife, now tending Whitmond Farm by herself, she will not hesitate to mention her treacherous husband: "If you see my good-for-nothing husband, Bjalfi, tell him I want back what he stole from me!" When asked about her husband, she will elaborate: "Perhaps you can help me. My husband's name is Bjalfi the Contemptible. My father said I was a fool to marry him, but I didn't listen. At our wedding, my father gave us a family heirloom as a gift; Rockshatter, a mace that's been in my family for many generations. Bjalfi snatched Rockshatter from our mantle and took off to 'find his fortune' with the local Marauder gang at Fort Strand. I want that mace back. Please, I don't think he's ever coming back, and I'd hate to lose such a precious heirloom to a gang of thugs." After hearing her request, Maeva may also angrily say: "That good-for-nothing husband's going to be very surprised if he crawls back here. Very surprised."

Bjalfi is currently hiding out with a gang of Marauders in the depths of Fort Strand, wandering around without ever eating or sleeping. Other than Rockshatter, Bjalfi is equipped with leveled heavy armor, including boots, a cuirass, and greaves, and has a 50% chance of having a pair of gauntlets. All of the armor will be the best possible quality for your character's level. He also carries a sum of gold. He will attack you on sight, so your only choice is to kill him.

When all is said and done, Maeva will reflect a bit on her deceased husband: "He was a good man when I married him, but greed took a hold of his heart. While I'm not happy he's dead, I'm glad he's at peace."
