Farkas is a Nord and member of the Companions. While, as his twin brother Vilkas puts it, "his brains are not his strong suit", Farkas is respected as a skilled warrior.

He and Vilkas belong to the Companions' inner circle and, as such, are both werewolves.

As children, the two were rescued from a band of necromancers by a man named Jergen, who then raised them as Companions. Farkas appears morally ambivalent about being a werewolf, and is hesitant to use his Beast Form.

He can be loose with his tongue, often showing impertinence to his elders. However, he warms up quickly to you when met, and is quick to protect his friends.

He wears a random set of steel armor and is armed with a skyforge steel greatsword (or an iron greatsword at lower levels). He also carries a belted tunic and the key to the Whiterun gate.

He offers both miscellaneous quests and master level training in Heavy Armor. During the journey to Ysgramor's Tomb, Farkas will refuse to accompany you past the outer chambers, admitting that he has developed a fear of giant spiders following your initiation trial in the quest Proving Honor.
