Gunmar is a Nord hunter in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard who is a master trainer in Smithing. He is an old friend of Isran, who mentions that he hates vampires almost as much as Isran himself does.
Isran asks the Dragonborn to find and recruit Gunmar into the Dawnguard. Gunmar can be found hunting outside at several radiant locations
Once a member of the Dawnguard he will move to Fort Dawnguard, trading in his default armor for the Dawnguard Armor. There he will offer a variety of services.This including training the dragonborn in smithing to master,being a weapons and armor trader,and finally can sell battle trolls as companions.
If the Dragonborn has allied themselves with the Dawnguard but contracted vampirism, Gunmar will direct the Dragonborn to Falion in Morthal for a cure.
He provides radiant quest to slay vampires
He looks out for the Dragonborn and will often comment that morality is very important, as it is what separates humans from vampires. Like Isran, he is honorable, though less staunch, more relaxed and more open-minded. Upon first meeting him he exclaims, "By the Eight," suggesting he may have abandoned or rejected Talos worship. His family was killed by vampires, much like Isran's, and he chooses to defend others from vampire attacks, rather than seek revenge, always keeping the same message running through his mind: to never let another human being face the same fate he did.
- Gunmar, like Ollrod and Lynoit, wears a semi-unique, sleeveless variant of the Dawnguard Armor.
