Windhelm

skyrim windhelmWindhelm is a major city in Eastmarch, located near the Dunmeth Pass to Morrowind in northeastern Skyrim.

Lying near the northern coast in the very northern tip of Eastmarch, Windhelm is an extremely cold city where blizzards are common. To approach the city from the south one must first cross the White River via a large stone bridge. The Jarl of Windhelm is Ulfric Stormcloak who can be located in the Palace of the Kings. Windhelm is home to the Stormcloak movement and so is aligned with that side in the civil war – due in part to this, anti-foreign sentiment is common in the city from the Nord majority. As it is controlled by the Stormcloaks (and is where they base their stronghold), Windhelm does not comply with the Imperial ban on worship of Talos and a Temple of Talos can be found in the city.

Due to its proximity to Morrowind, Windhelm also contains a sizable population of Dark Elves, who live in a cramped slum called the Gray Quarter. The Elves are not violently persecuted, but the local Nords are at best suspicious of them and at worst outright xenophobic while sometimes saying racist comments, while Ulfric Stormcloak turns a blind eye to their plight. This becomes even more clear when the player first enters the city and can overhear an argument between Rolff Stone-Fist, Angrenor Once-Honored and Suvaris Atheron, with the two Nords accusing the Dark Elves of being spies for the Thalmor and the empire. Not all Nords hate the Dark Elves though: Brunwulf Free-Winter is known to stand up for them.
