Frea is a Nord living in Skaal Village. She is the daughter of Storn, the village's shaman, and will replace him after his death. After completing The Fate of the Skaal, you can persuade her into becoming a follower. If she is a follower on certain quests, she will make unique comments and even have conversations with other NPCs on the quest.

Frea's mother died when she was very young after being caught in a blizzard while returning from gathering firewood. After her mother died, Frea became an angry and restless child. She learned how to fight from Skaf the Giant, the chieftain of the Skaal prior to Fanari, who told her that she should "put that fire to good use."

Frea wears Nordic carved armor with matching boots and gauntlets, as well as a unique Skaal amulet which protects her from Miraak's influence. She carries two war axes, one stalhrim and the other Nordic, as well as a Nordic bow and twelve Nordic arrows.

She knows the Alteration spells Ebonyflesh and Ironflesh, and the Restoration spells Close Wounds, Fast Healing, and Heal Other.

Follower Dialogue[edit]

Frea mourning the loss of Storn

After completing The Fate of the Skaal, you may let Frea know that you fight well with her and that she should join you, to which she'll respond, "Join you? You mean leave the village to journey with you and fight at your side? I'm flattered, but the village is my home. It's very rare for one of the Skaal to leave, and I have responsibilities here." You will now have two dialogue options:

Option Dialogue Reaction
You can trust me. I saved your life, remember? (Persuade) Passed: "You're right. I suppose the others can get by without me for awhile. Very well, if you need my help, seek me out here in the village."
Failed: "I am sorry, but I must refuse. I am grateful for your help, but my place is here, with my people. We Skaal are not like you. We do not seek adventure, we wish only to live in peace and to honor our traditions. I hope you understand."
Passed: Frea's a Follower
Failed: Nothing
I'll make it worth your while. (Bribe) Failed: "The land provides all that I need. I have no use for your coins." or "As I've already told you, I have no need of money." Failed: Nothing
Your Response Frea's Dialogue
Follow me. "I will shadow your steps."
I need to trade some things with you. "Very well."
I need you to do something. "What would you ask of me?"
It's time for us to part ways. "I need to get back to the village. My father will have need of me."
"It has been an honor, Skaal-friend."
Wait here. "If that is what you wish."

  • Since Frea's amulet is part of her default outfit, it is somewhat difficult to acquire since you have to provide her with an amulet that has an armor rating which would outclass it.
  • Although her default gear is governed by the Heavy Armor skill, Frea is actually more proficient in light armor.
    • PC Only This issue has been addressed by version 1.0.2 of the Unofficial Dragonborn Patch; it changes her class to favor heavy armor, and adjusts her perks to match.
  • She is voiced by Elle Newlands.


  • If Frea is your follower during The Path of Knowledge or The Gardener of Men, there's a period where she'll leave you but still take up your follower spot. To avoid this, either dismiss her before reading the Black Book: Epistolary Acumen or right after you return from Apocrypha, go to the Skaal Village (where she runs to) and dismiss her before speaking with Storn. Otherwise you'll be without a follower until you complete the Dragonborn main questline. ?
