Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak

Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak

Dear Mother,

J’Zhirr speaks to Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak after Galmar Stone-Fist left. This one feels that he should hear Jarl’s Ulfric side of the story.

It does not begins well. Jarl Ulfric is rather haughty until J’Zhirr reminds him that one on was set free and could have gone anywhere. Jarl Ulfric immediately becomes friendlier and patiently answers J’Zhirr’s many questions about the incident leading up to the civil war.

Jarl Ulfric paints himself as a tragic figure, wrong and betrayed by the people outside Skyrim. He also paints himself as a crusader, a patriot who wants to restore the glory of the Nords. When J’Zhirr asks Jarl Ulfric if he desires to be the High King, he does not answer the question directly. Instead he says that there has not been a true High King for generations and it is time that Skyrim has a High King of their own making.
