The ghost of Valdemar

Valdemar was a Nord Blades knight who has been trapped as an undead creature imprisoned in the ruined fort of Sancre Tor. You will need to release the Ghost of Valdemar as part of the main quest.

One of the mightiest Blades from the Tiber Septim Era, Valdemar now wanders around in his Undead state, guarding the easternmost room of the huge prison section of Sancre Tor. After being defeated, the ghost of the cursed Blade will rise from the bones, and will immediately head towards the Tomb of Reman Emperors and kneel before the magical barriers blocking the way to the Armor of Tiber Septim. After you have claimed the Armor, Valdemar will disappear and finally find eternal peace in Aetherius.

Valdemar wears a complete set of blades armor; helmet, cuirass, gauntlets, a shield, greaves and a pair of boots. He wields an Akaviri katana and carries a small sum of gold.

Once free, the ghost will greet you by announcing "I was Valdemar, loyal Blade of Emperor Tiber Septim. I do not know how long I have been dead. It feels like an eternity." On subsequent greetings, he will say "I know you. You freed me. Free my brothers, if they are still enslaved. Together we will cleanse the Shrine of the Underking's foul magic."

The only real rumor about Valdemar comes from Jauffre, who will tell you that "The four mightiest Blades of Tiber Septim's day, Alain, Valdemar, Rielus, and Casnar, went to Sancre Tor and never returned.", although Casnar will ask "Have you seen Alain or Valdemar? Rielus fell in the lower chamber."
