The Companions are a collective group of fighters who take on contracts for the people of Skyrim. Their lineage is traced back to Ysgramor and the 500 Companions, and the most elite in their group is the Circle of Jorrvaskr. Based out of Whiterun.
Whiterun is a city in central Skyrim, and the capital of the Whiterun Hold. The hold which it governs is filled with rich grasslands for farming and easy travel. The city is home to the Skyforge and Companions. Remains in uneasy neutrality.
