You’ll want to chat to Wulf Wild-Blood who will ask you to find his brother Torkild . The problem with this quest is that Torkild will only appear as a random encounter in the game. You might also come across him when he’s already been killed, but this won’t stop you from completing the quest successfully.

Here’s a list of locations where random encounters (of all types) are more likely to appear:

  • On the coastline between Glacial Cave and Bujold's Retreat is a popular place for Torkild to wander.
  • West of Glacial Cave, along the coastline.
  • West of Damphall Mine, along the coastline
  • West of Broken Tusk Mine, along the coastline.
  • Just outside (North) of Raven Rock.
  • Just South of Bujold's Retreat on the east side of Solstheim.
  • East of Saering's Watch, on the path below the cliff just east of the word wall.
  • Halfway between Glacial Cave and Haknir's Shoal, along the coast.
  • At the bottom of the waterfall that runs next to Castle Karstaag Caverns

After finding Torkild and speaking with him, he will turn into a werebear and attack. Searching his body yields a note to his brother Wulf. When given the letter, Wulf will express his sadness at his brother's death, but also relief that he is at rest.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are used to the bitter cold and mountanous terrain that mark the lands of Skyrim. Wracked by civil war, and threatened by the return of the legendary dragons, Skyrim faces its darkest hour. You must make sense of this maelstrom, explore the frozen tundra and bring hope to the people. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons. You are that Dragonborn.
