Freygerd is the widow of Nial Swiftfling and sister of Mawnis Burowgar. According to Mawnis, she moved to Jatizso to be with Nial; however, he would never return from his fateful trip after mutating into a yeti. Like many of the island's inhabitants, Freygerd is trying to save enough money to leave Jatizso and start a new life on the mainland. The high taxes on Jatizso, however, have made this nearly impossible.
During the quest Glorious Memories, the player convinces King Gjuki Sorvott IV to alleviate the emigration tax preventing her from leaving the island. She is sad about her husband's death and does not want to talk about him, but she is relieved when the player gives her Nial's throwing axe, knowing that he has been put to rest.
After the Blood Runs Deep quest, she can still be found in Jatizso, as she has decided not to leave after all, having gotten used to the atmosphere there. She can also be informed that Nial is safe and sound in the afterlife.
When she is trapped at the end of the house while a player is pickpocketing her, she will sometimes walk right through the fire in her house.
