Braham Eirsson (born 1309 AE) is a young norn guardian from Cragstead who relies heavily on the teachings of Wolf. He is the son of Eir Stegalkin and Borje the Sun Chaser.


He grew up not knowing who his mother was until his father died, leading him to have a form of resentment for her. After his father's death when Braham was seven, he lived at Rugnar's Steading with Yngvi Rugnar and Brynhildr the Mother Bear.

When the Molten Alliance attacked in early 1326 AE, Braham went to the Black Citadel for aid from Rytlock Brimstone for defending Cragstead, and when that failed went to Hoelbrak to seek aid from his mother and Knut Whitebear. Upon his return, Cragstead had fallen to the Molten Alliance, which he liberated with the aid of traveling adventurers, but could not save all the villagers - his love interest, Ottilia among them.

With the help of the charr gladium Rox and the Vigil, Braham raided several of the Molten Alliance's facilities, rescuing the prisoners and destroying the bases until the Molten Alliance were believed defeated. He then set out to rebuild Cragstead, turning it into a haven for the refugees who lost their homes in the attacks.

Braham later accompanied Rox to the opening ceremony of the human Queen's Jubilee, and came to the defense of Divinity's Reach when it was attacked by Scarlet's minions. Whilst fighting in the Tower of Nightmares with Rox, he met Marjory Delaqua and Kasmeer Meade for the first time. Later, after Scarlet Briar tested her Twisted Marionette in Lornar's Pass, the asura progeny Taimi became attached to him, and Braham was forced to pursue her into the Edge of the Mists after Captain Mai Trin's breakout. Braham participated in the Battle for Lion's Arch, and broke his leg in the final confrontation with Scarlet aboard the Breachmaker.

At Dragon's Stand (Heart of Thorns) before completing Hearts and Minds
When are we heading down to dig Mordremoth out? My mace is twitchy.
Talk more option tango.png
Do you think we can beat it? We still don't know its weakness.
I know we can. I can feel it trembling at the very thought of us. So maybe we don't know its weakness, but it's scared. Why else would it have pulled Trahearne away? We must be close.
Talk more option tango.png
Hm. That's an astute observation.
Yeah. I think some of Taimi's genius might be rubbing off on me. Don't tell her I said that.
Talk end option tango.png
My lips are sealed. Tell your mace to be ready. We'll be going in soon.
At Dragon's Stand (Heart of Thorns) after completing Hearts and Minds
Braham: Another victory! They're adding up. Jormag's next on the docket, right?
Talk more option tango.png
A little rest might be in order first, don't you think?
Rest? I'm not resting until all the Elder Dragons are dead. Eir helped you kill Zhaitan. It's up to me to help you take down the rest. I see that now, and I'm ready.
Talk more option tango.png
Eir would be proud of you. But, we have to rest before charging back in.
We have a good guild. There's nothing we can't do if we put our minds to it. I suppose we've earned a little break, but hopefully not too long.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm sure trouble will find us before too much time has passed, my friend.


Combat chatter
We can handle them, spread out!
Enemy downed
Glad that's over.
