Brynjolf by sarahlis

Does anyone feel like the Thieve's Guild got shortchanged? Why are there no followers? It has all these neat characters and after a short conversation you never get to interact with them again.

Or maybe I'm just still sore that Brynjolf won't let me marry his accent. Well guess what, Brynjolf? After we die, we're spending all of eternity together as Nightingales, so I win.

I guess because following the Dragonborn would cause them to attack the enemies,and the thieves guild are not supossed t attack people,as they are only thieves

i swear, he looks like my Thief Character...okay, my characters face looks a lot more darker and evil, but the main features are the same, green eyes, rather long red hair, and a beard.

hell, i feel like i found the doppelganger of one of my characters.

Apparently he has extra dialogue after you've finished the main TG quest, but a bug means all he says is "I'm sorry, lass. I've got important things to do"

The uesp wiki says that bug was fixed(liars). And that he may be in a relationship with Tonilia.

Hating on Tonilia now.

The picture is lovely.

Beautiful, beautiful picture-

-of my least favourite character. Mwahahahaha!

P.s: I'm being super serious here
Tobassinesia Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013
Same. I don't mind him in general, but that "lass" makes me want to bash up his face. I'm not a lass!!
Tazzmoodley Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013
So true!
bustacrunk Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2013
The general consensus was that having a follower would hinder your ability to sneak around as your companions A.I. isn't flexible enough to allow for complicated executions (hiding on top of a rock in the corner of a dungeon from 5 draugr deathlords without yelling "I WILL HAVE YOUR HEAD"). Not much of a point for the thieves guild to offer a follower when thieves are better off alone.

I agree, I think we should of been able to have the same benefits as the College of Winterhold and the Companions! it's unfair how PC-gamers get all the cool marriage mods and stuff
Qhullu Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
I can hear his voice in my head when I look at this... "Sorry lass, I’ve got important things to do. We’ll speak another time." You made him looks so awesome, so handsome, so - Brynjolf-some.

I love being married to Byrn- he's a lot more fun than sitting in a rocker , knitting, believe me

No followers, no marriage. It kinda sucks. Thank God for fanfic.
LadyKatamari Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012
I think the Theives Guild should be renamed to the Club of Hot Unmarriable People, or COHUP for short.

I support this motion!

...I also am in the "WHY CAN'T I MARRY BRYNJOLF?' club. That is one attractive accent.

Welcome to the WYCIB club. XD

I agree with you on the sadness of not being able to marry him. Even my straight male characters would have a hard time resisting that accent <3

One thing I wonder about though is what happens after Dovahkiin current character is leader of the Dark Brotherhood AND Thieves Guild/Nightingale. I can't help but imagine Sithis and Nocturnal duking it out for his immortal soul.

Join the Companions and you have Hircine joining the fight, too. (passes around the popcorn)

I felt the same way about Karliah.
alrieice Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I know what you mean. I love accents. And I will never skip any lines of conversation with him just to hear that sexy accent. It's the kind of accent you want to hear whispering sweet nothings and dirty secrets in your ear.
xkelbix Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
To begin with i didnt like him that much but now he's awesome!
LOVEintheSNOW Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012  Hobbyist
This picture is WONDERFUL :iconilavplz:

My favorite character-- I love him so much. It's so sad that I get butterflies whenever he gives me praise. "Well, color me impressed, lass" :faint:
BurningSandDeamon Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2012
it wasnt until after i completed the thieves guild storyline that i found out i couldnt marry him. then skyrim just punched me in the face for the umpteenth time and was all "NOPE LOL." skyrim is the worst troll.

"Not now lass, I have important things to do."


Seriously beautiful picture! I'm very smitten with Brynjolf('s accent) too! :3 Wish we could marry him!

Thank you Bethesda for creating Brynjolf, and thank you for that drawing 8D

My my...what a lovely accent you have...the better to fangirl you with, my dear...

Oh, I'm sorry.

Yeah, so I'm just gonna go over here right now. With this picture...and...write some more Brynfic...that's right...he's deserving of his own category, no?

Alright...I adore this've done a beautiful job capturing that piercing gaze that the pixels do no justice to. Really lovely...I'll be back to stare at it I'm sure...

This guy bugged out on me, thus blocking me from completing the Thieves Guild questline. So, I killed the entire population of Riften, and then repeated 5 friggin hours of gameplay to try to do the quest without it buggin out. His accent is great to listen to listen to, however.
tansyuduri Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012  Student Writer
yeah I at least wanted him as a follower
DaErkka Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh but you see he has important things to do. We'll speak another time.

Nice drawing, good job. Personally I can't take Brynjolf seriously anymore because I found out that Robin Atkin Downes voice acts him. The same person who voice acts a certain crazy german medic in a team based first person shooter made by the same studio who made half life, portal and left 4 dead.
sarahlis Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012
Ahh! Once you hear it, you can't unhear it!!

If you've played the main story, you know Paarthunax. Well Charles Martinet voice acts him, who's that ? Well [link]
