Speak to Vilkas and after a few menial jobs you will get this quest. This time a family has had their heirloom stolen, and will ask the Companions to get it back for them. This is a Radiant Quest, meaning that the item you are searching for is random, as is the location where it is held.

The item I got was a Glass Mace, which I don’t consider much of an heirloom, and was being held at Sleeping Tree Camp . Do your preparation work before you leave (potions, followers, etc) and head out. Fast travel to the place if you can. You’ll likely need to kill SOMETHING to find the item, which for me was a giant, and then I picked up the glass mace out of a nearby treasure chest.

Once you’ve killed whatever is between you and the item, and claim the item, return to Vilkas and give it to him. The quest will now be over and you will be 300 gold richer.

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.
