Prince Irnskar

Prince Irnskar is the Nord son of Jorunn the Skald-King, and nephew of Fildgor Orcthane. He is often found accompanying his father. At first, Prince Irnskar seems prejudiced against the Dunmer and Argonians of the Ebonheart Pact.

Quest-Related Events[edit]

Speaking to him in the temporary council house in Windhelm:

"Why my father continues to cater to these ... foreigners ... baffles me."
You don't support the alliance?
"I support the Nords. Let's leave it at that."

The War Council[edit]

Prince Irnkar will arrive in the Jarl's Manor after Dhalen has been dispatched and Naryu has told you that she saved the ambassadors. You need to speak with him to end the quest.

"Where's my father? What did our so-called allies do to him?
I'll kill every single Argonian and Dark Elf myself if my father's been harmed!"
It wasn't the Argonians or the Dark Elves. It was Fildgor Orcthane.
"Fildgor might have driven the blade, but the Dark Elves and Argonians did nothing to protect my father!
Now where is he? Tell me!"
He's upstairs. A Dark Elf and an Argonian are protecting him.
"Guards, go to the King at once!
As for you, what's your involvement in all this? Why are you here?"
Fildgor's agents tried to kill me, too.
"Then we are allies. For now.
I must go to my father. I don't care how we do it, but his life must be saved. My father can't die. Fildgor will not win this war! Not this way! I forbid it!"

Making Amends[edit]

"Well met, my friend!"

Your response depends on how you receive the quest. If you received it from Prince Irnskar:

How fares the Skald-King?

If you received it from Hlotild the Fox:

How is the Skald-King doing?
"My father is still weak from the poison, but he's recovering. I'm organizing things here while he gets his strength back.
I need to regain the confidence of our Dark Elf and Argonian allies. My regrettable actions at Fort Amol have made them wary."
How can I help?
'"Speak to the highest-ranking Pact leaders in the camp—General Yeveth Noramil of the Dark Elves and the Argonian leader, Eyes-of-Steel.
See what we can do to demonstrate the strength of the Pact."
Right away, Prince Irnskar.

Speaking to him again:

"I hope you can convince our allies of my commitment to the Pact."

Returning to him after convincing everyone:

"Well met, my friend!"
I completed the tasks for the Argonian and Dark Elf leaders.
"I received word that General Yeveth Noramil and Eyes-of-Steel will meet with me. I'll show them the respect they deserve and work to strengthen our alliance.
Once again, your aid advances our cause. You have my gratitude"

A Council of Thanes[edit]

After convincing the alliance representatives to meet with him, the Prince has another favor to ask of you.

"I need to discuss strategy with the thanes and Pact leaders."
Anything else I can do?
"The Argonian and Dark Elf leaders are ready to meet. It's time to gather a council of war.
Do you think you could convince the thanes to attend as well? They're an independent lot, but their advice would be welcome."
I can talk to the thanes.
"Start with Thane Harvald. He's a close friend of my father's. If any of the thanes can be counted on, it's Harvald."
I'll go talk to Thane Harvald.

Speaking to him again:

"I hope my father can attend the council meeting."
Where will you hold the war council?
"We'll meet in front of the healers' tent. I'm sure my father will feel well enough to join us."

During the council of war:

Thane Oda Wolf-Sister: "Fildgor's at Skuldafn with the Crown of Freydis and the body of Queen Nurnhilde. For what purpose?"
Prince Irnskar: "The Orcthane plans to use them at the dragonshrine to usurp my father's throne."
General Yeveth Noramil: "A necromantic ritual, perhaps?"
Eyes-of-Steel: "The Crown is a powerful artifact. I shudder to think what the Orcthane can accomplish with it."
Thane Harvald: "I don't like the idea of that bastard using our fabled crown. And I hate that he has our beloved queen's body."
Prince Irnskar: "Father! You honor us! I'm glad to see you up and aroun."
Jorunn the Skald-King: "My brother seeks to pull my sister's soul from Sovngarde. The Crown of Freydis will see the soul, not the man."
General Yeveth Noramil: "It's good to see you well, Jorunn. We've been discussing how to approach Skuldafn."
Thane Jeggi Gap-Tooth: "Yes, yes. We discuss and we strategize while Fildgor digs in and strengthens his defenses."
Thane Oda Wolf-Sister: "So, have we come to any conclusions?"
Eyes-of-Steel: "The Stormfists have fortified the primary path to the dragonshrine. A frontal assault would take time that we may not have."
Jorunn the Skald-King: "Time is a luxury we don't possess. If Fildgor completes this ritual, all is lost."
General Yeveth Noramil: "That's why you wanted to see those scouting reports! You think there's another way into Skuldafn."
Jorunn the Skald-King: "There is always another way. Champion, may we speak?"

You will then need to speak to the king. After the quest, he will address his father:

Prince Irnskar: "Send for me if you need me, sire."

Speaking to him after the quest:

"I appreciate all you have done, both for my family and for the Ebonhart Pact."

Songs of Sovngarde[edit]

At the end of the quest, King Jorunn will ask you to give Prince Irnskar news of the events that transpired at Skuldafn.

"Welcome back, champion! What news do you bring from the peaks of lonely Skuldafn?"

If Fildgor died by your hand:

Fildgor is dead, and the Ebonheart Pact is sealed.
"Fildgor's dead? Then the villain has paid for his crimes.
You've been by my father's side and have persevered when others would have faltered. From now on, you shall be known as the High King's Arrow, for you lead the way and always strike true."

If Fildgor died by Jorunn's hand:

Fildgor is dead, and the Ebonheart Pact is sealed.
"Fildgor's dead? As it should be. I mourn with my father, though.
You've been by his side and have persevered when others would have faltered. From now on, you shall be known as the High King's Arrow, for you lead the way and always strike true."

If Fildgor was spared:

The Ebonheart Pact is sealed and Fildgor lives.
"My uncle lives? My father's mercy knows no bounds!
You've been by his side and have persevered when others would have faltered. From now on, you shall be known as the High King's Arrow, for you lead the way and always strike true."

After the quest:

"Your work here is done, Arrow. But know that you will always have a place of honor in the Skald-King's court."
