Mikael is a Nord bard performing at the Bannered Mare, and the author of A Gentleman's Guide to Whiterun. He believes himself to be quite enthralling to women and will remark: "Once Mikael gets them, they're got." He spends all his time at the inn, alternating between playing his instruments and chatting to any women present, whether they are single or married. His parting advice is that, "Women love sonnets." If your character is female, upon leaving a conversation he'll say, "It's the leaving that's hardest, I know."
