The next day, J’Zhirr finds Vilkas and Kodlak Whitemane deep in conversation. Vilkas seems troubled that he can still hear the call of the blood.
Kodlak tries to comfort him, “We all do. It is our burden to bear. But we can overcome.”
J’Zhirr knows that Vilkas has great respect for Kodlak so it is no surprise that Vilkas pledges his support, saying, “You have my brother and I, obviously.” However, Vilkas expresses his doubts about the others and thinks that they might not go along so easily.
J’Zhirr has a private chat with Kodlak Whitemane in his room after the initiation ceremony. He is surprised that J’Zhirr knows about The Circle being werewolves and says that J’Zhirr isn’t meant to know about it. Not so soon anyway.
While Farkas sees lycanthropy as a blessing, Kodlak sees it as a curse. If Kodlak dies a werewolf, he will go to the Daedric Lord Hircine’s hunting grounds. However, Kodlak wants his soul to go to Sovngrade and join other Nordic heroes. Therefore he is quietly searching for a cure.
After we return with the fragment of Wuuthrad, Skjor and Farkas leave to discuss about this one’s performance during the mission. A while later, Vilkas brings this one to Jorrvaskr’s courtyard for the initiation ceremony. In the presence of the other Circle members, Farkas vouches for this one. So J’Zhirr becomes a member of The Companions.
