9 Hulffrid Deep Voiced
Known for his war cry and his hums with a bass
Hulffrid Deep Voiced forged his name in the fire of battle, saving the lives of hundreds at the battle of Whiterun. When Hulffrid was but a whelp of a lad he took up arms with the Stormcloaks and aided in the freedom of Skyrim. Right when Hulffrid stepped into the Palace of Kings, Galmar Stone-Fist gave him his colors and told him to immediately march to Whiterun, they were storming the city. When he made it to the main gate the seige had already began. He met up with the rest of the troop and when the wall came down, they were the first to charge in.
You could feel the fear of the Imperial soldiers when that wall came down, Hulffrid took his axe and slayed maybe a dozen soldiers within the first skirmish. After noticing the draw bridge was still up he decided to make a run for the lever. Killing a couple more Imps Hulffrid noticed he was not alone. By Talos, it was the Dragonborn himself! The two warriors together grabbed each lever and pulled the drawbridge down. The Dragonborn ran into the city, alone. Hulffrid noticed that nobody had heard or even seen the drawbridge come down, and Imperial reinforcements were on their way. He had to warn them somehow. He breathed inward, as if Kynareth herself has resided within him, and shouted
“COME ON MEN! THE DRAWBRIDGE IS DOWN! TAKE HAVEN NOW BEFORE THE ENEMY REACHES THE WALL!”
The battlefield fell silent, all men and women of both sides stood and stared at the man who was heard over war. His voiced echoed throughout the city streets. Perhaps all of Skyrim had heard the man, perhaps not. But with the might of Talos and the Strength of Ysgramor, the Stormcloak army had rushed over the bridge and into the city, swiftly taking the rest of Whiterun. After the battle was over Hulffrid was met once again by the Dragonborn “I never thought someone could shout louder than me.” He said with a laugh, the two then shared mead for the night, and returned to Windhelm. Hulffrid continued the war even besieging Solitude and bringing peace to all of Skyrim.
After retiring his colors and axe, Hulffrid Deep Voiced took haven with a different faction, the Bard’s College in Solitude. He had a knack for the bass lute and was widely known for his voice, he wandered all around Skyrim singing tales of the Stormcloak victories. Hulffrid spent the next 45 years as a wandering bard, enjoying his retired life.
