Torvar, a Nord warrior, is the drunken misfit of the Companions of Jorrvaskr. Initially of a friendly disposition, his attitude towards you seems to sour as you rise through the ranks, but he still becomes a potential follower after the Companions questline is completed. It's also possible to marry Torvar once the Harbinger rank is achieved.
Perhaps more interested in mead than combat, Torvar will often say to you, "Might head down to the meadery later. See what they're brewing up. You can smell the honey on the wind." After you become Harbinger, he may also greet you with, "Oh, so you're the one in charge now? Fine, fine."
You: "Why did you join the Companions?"
Torvar: "A man of my station has many debts. I'm not much use at labor or learning, but I can throw a punch with the best of 'em."
You: "What does it mean to be a Companion?"
Torvar: "It means when I have troubles, I always have someone on my side. We have Shield-Siblings to keep our backs as dangerous as our fronts. I think."
Athis: "What kind of weapon do you prefer? I like the smaller, quicker blades."
Farkas: "You'll do all right some day. Today you need to keep training, though."
Farkas: "Relax, new blood."
Torvar: "One day when you and I are on the Circle, we can change how things are run around here."
Torvar: "Master, I..."
Torvar: "Do you think I could be a member of the Circle? Some day? If I work hard?"
- The Bonds of Matrimony: Find someone in Skyrim to marry.
- Rebuilding the Blades: Recruit new members for the Blades.
- Although his default gear is governed by the Light Armor skill, Torvar is actually more proficient in Heavy Armor.
- He may attack you on sight after you have liberated Hjaalmarch for the Stormcloaks, even if you are a member of the Companions yourself. After Solitude has been conquered and thus the civil war has ended, he will revert back to his normal behavior.
