Mount & Blade Wiki

Helgi is one of the heroes in Viking Conquest. He is a Norse pagan Svia Viking from the realm of Svíþjóð (Sweden).

In the campaign mode, he can be found in the city of Jorvik, but in the sandbox modes, it could be any city. To hire him, you need to pay 300 peningas. He is not a noble, therefore if made a lord, he will give you -4 relation with other lords.


Due to high skill in tactics, navigation and trading, he has some decent support roles for the party, but in the longer term, Agathinos could outmatch him in these roles.

In combat, he is a good warrior, skirmisher and he can become a good longbow archer or rider, if the player invests skill points in power draw or riding.


"Yes? What do you need?"

"Very well. I do not mind. My Name is Helgi, killer of Danes and Slavs."

"I am the second son of a hersir from the land east of Northvegr. I am a Svia Viking. I traveled west to seek my fortune in Englaland, unlike many of my compatriots who seek their fortunes in the East with the Rus. I am good at leading assaults and training men in the art of war. Unfortunately, the jarl here has no taste for the disciplinary methods needed to turn that rabble of his into soldiers. I told him it was wiser to flog them now than bury them later,, but he would not listen. Instead, he told me to take my services elsewhere."

"So, if you know of any warlord whose goal is to win battles rather than pamper his soldiers, please direct me to him."

"I would be pleased to ride with you, at least for a little while, for pay and a share of any loot."

"I am a sklled swordsman. I can also instruct your men in fighting, but I warn you that I do not care to fight for a leader who is lax in discipline with his men, for in the long run they will not respect a soft hand."

"Ah, one last thing. I would like an initial bounty of 300 peningas before I join your command. It's my principle never to enter someone's service without receiving the payment I deserve."
