Eydis Asulfsdottir is a shieldmaiden in Skjern and the oldest person to join the thegn's adventures. She is referred to as 'mother' by the other party members. She has two sons and her husband has died a few years ago. She lives on the farm south of the centre of Skjern.
She can be recruited after the prologue when you ask information about the treasures in the old king's tomb for the quest Preparations: Tomb Raider.
Due to her average strenght and perception scores and her lack of finesse, Eydis will not be able to deal high amounts of damage with either melee or ranged weapons, but she can become a good tank-healer with an axe. But in case she isn't taken into combat often, she can become a good camper due to her high Sense score.
