Gisli is a Nord ranger living in Solitude. She is the discouraged sister of the arrogant Thane of Solitude, Erikur, and spends most of her time badmouthing him.

Despite hating her brother, Gisli sleeps on the ground floor of his house every night between midnight and 8am. After waking up she enjoys a one-hour breakfast then leaves the house for two hours of shopping at Angeline's Aromatics. At 11am she moves on to Radiant Raiment then heads over to Bits and Pieces at 1pm. She finishes shopping at 4pm and enters the Winking Skeever where she stays until her bedtime at midnight.

Gisli wears a set of fine clothes along with a pair of fine boots. She wields an iron dagger and carries her key to Erikur's house, a belted tunic, and a selection of upper-class items and gold.

When you get near her she will greet you with: "Hello. I'm Gisli. But you can just call me Erikur's sister. Everyone does." or "Welcome to the center of the world. Or at least my brother Erikur's world..." She will then ask you if you have met her brother: "Have you met my dear brother Erikur? The man's as trustworthy as a Khajiit goldmonger." When you talk to her, Gisli will reveal to you the bitterness she has toward Erikur: "Quickly, if you please. I'm quite busy running errands for my bastard of a brother..." You can ask her if Erikur is her brother, to which she will provide you with her opinion about him: "Yes. My older brother and the person you probably want to be speaking to right now. But really, since Torygg's death, Falk Firebeard wields the true power of the Jarl's court. My brother is nothing more than a pompous little fop." Despite her harsh words regarding her brother, if Erikur dies in any way she will show visible distress if he is brought up in conversation, responding: "Yes. My older brother. He was a bit of a fop, really. And truth be told, since Torygg's death, he had no real power in court. But still... He didn't deserve to die." Gisli may close dialogue by saying: "We'll speak again later. If we must..." or "I'll be sure to check 'Talk to random stranger' off my list of today's tasks..."

When told that she doesn't seem to have a good attitude, she'll respond bitterly: "If you're looking for a good attitude go see the Bards. They'll fake it for you if nothing else." If Noster Eagle-Eye and Evette San are alive, Gisli will continue, "If you're looking for truth instead, see Noster. He's a good example of what life has to offer. And if you're just looking to feel good, go get some Spiced Wine from Evette. But whatever you do, just leave me alone." If Noster and Evette are dead, she will instead say, "But you won't get any better than this from me."

  • Gísli is a Norse name in the real world; however, it is a male name.
  • Gisli is in the steward faction and her voice type has dialogue to sell property and give bounties, even though no other steward uses her voice type. She was likely meant to serve as Erikur's steward in the event that he replaced Elisif as Jarl.
