Helgird at the cemetery

Dear Mother,

J’Zhirr visits Helgird, a priestess of Arkay, who has taken Susanna’s body to the Hall of the Dead to prepare her for burial. The guard warns this one that Helgird is a little crazy, but if she knows anything, it’s bead bodies.

Helgird has a weird sense of humor. When J’Zhirr asks whether Helgrid has noticed anything strange about Susanna’s body, Helgrid replies, “Well, she’s dead. But I guess that’s not unusual, at least not for somebody in here. I mean, someone who’s not me, that is. Sorry, was only joking with you.”

She then says that the shape of the cuts found on the body indicates a curved blade, similar to the ones used by ancient Nords when they embalmed their dead. Other then herself, Helgrid does not know anyone in Windhelm who owns the ancient embalming tool.
