Oengul War-Anvil is a Nord blacksmith living in Windhelm. He can be found at the forge outside the Blacksmith Quarters, next to Windhelm's marketplace on the west side of the city. He works at the forge daily from 8am to 8pm, along with his assistant Hermir Strong-Heart. If anything happens to Oengul, Hermir replaces him as the town's blacksmith.
Oengul works everyday tirelessly, trying to outshine Eorlund Gray-Mane from Whiterun. He will often remark "Everyone says Eorlund Gray-Mane is the best smith in Skyrim. I plan to change a few minds about that." If you ask him about his steel, he will reply "Every bit as sharp as what you'll find in Whiterun. I respect Eorlund, but he has the good fortune to work the Skyforge. Something about the fires... their steel just holds tighter."
He is a loyal supporter of the Stormcloaks and Ulfric Stormcloak asked him to make an old style sword. Oengul is having a bit of trouble forging one and ask you to find Queen Freydis's sword for him: "Jarl wants it to look like an ancient blade. High Queen Freydis ruled over Windhelm in the Second Era, and her sword was legendary. Getting the real sword would be even better than making a copy, but no one wants to risk getting it from its resting place. If you find that sword, traveler, I'd be grateful." After acquiring the sword for him, he will thank you by training you in smithing: "Look at that edge. Still sharp. I'll present this to the Jarl later. As for you, let me show you some smithing techniques."
If Windhelm falls to the Imperial Legion, Oengul will become resentful and complain that if it wasn't for Hermir, regardless if she is alive or not, he would have left the city immediately. If you ask him whether he'll stay in Windhelm, he will reply "I almost didn't. I wasn't sure I could stomach having some Imperial tell me how to live my life. I was ready to pack my things when Hermir came to me. She wanted to make sure I'd finish teaching her the smithing trade. That girl's determination won me over. I suppose it didn't hurt that she said she only wanted to learn from the best smith in Skyrim. I couldn't let her run off to that pretender Eorlund Gray-Mane, could I?".

Oengul: "Did you use my good hammer?"
Oengul: "Blast, girl, I told you to leave my tools alone. You have yours and I have mine."
Hermir: "I didn't touch it!"
Oengul: "Hammers don't have legs."
Hermir: "Did you look behind the forge? I think I saw it there."

Hermir: "Is Ulfric's armor done yet?"
Oengul: "No, I want to take my time with it."

Oengul: "This is more delicate work than you're used to."
Hermir: "I did that engraved piece just last month!"
Oengul: "This is the royal armor, lass. Maybe in a few years."
Oengul: "Have you been learning your ores?"
Hermir: "I think I've got a handle on it, but Orichalcum is confusing."
Oengul: "Don't even bother with that one. Leave it to the orcs."
Hermir: "Oh, right. That makes sense. Kind of a messy metal, anyway."
- After returning Queen Freydis's sword to him, it will be available for you to buy.
