The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages wiki says that Skyrim has 1001 unique NPCs.
No one can remember all 1001 characters, even after a lot of playthroughs. However, there are a lot of interesting characters that stand out and leave a mark on our hearts.
Brynjolf is one of the most memorable people in the Thieves Guild. He is a rough and tough con artist with a lovely Scottish accent and a way with words.
I love Brynjolf so much that I can’t get enough of him. Every chance I get, I play Young Scrolls’ “Gold” on Soundcloud, and you can bet that I have some mods that make Brynjolf better in my load order.
You want to get some mods, lad? Get in touch with me at the Ragged Flagon… or just keep reading.

12. Brynjolf Makeover
The “Brynjolf Makeover to Resemble Olgierd Von Everec” mod is a modification for a game that focuses on transforming the appearance of Brynjolf to resemble the character Olgierd Von Everec from The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone DLC.
This mod aims to recreate Olgierd’s distinct features, including his facial structure, hairstyle, and possibly even his clothing, on Brynjolf.
By applying this mod, players can experience a crossover between the two games, allowing Brynjolf to take on the appearance of Olgierd.
This mod provides fans of both games with the opportunity to see their favorite characters merged in a unique and visually interesting way.
11. AW Brynjolf Replacer
The “Long Overdue Replacer for Everyone’s Favorite Thief” mod is a modification for a game that focuses on replacing the character model and appearance of a beloved thief character.
This mod recognizes that the thief character, who is widely adored by players, has needed a visual update for some time.
The mod introduces a new character model and design that aims to enhance the thief’s appearance, making them more appealing, realistic, or in line with the player’s preferences.
This replacement offers a fresh and long-awaited change to the beloved thief character, ensuring that players can continue to enjoy their adventures with an updated and visually improved version of their favorite thief.
10. Brynjolf NPC Overhaul
The “Brynjolf Appearance Overhaul” mod is a modification for a game that focuses on transforming the visual appearance of the character Brynjolf.
This mod aims to enhance and update Brynjolf’s look, providing a fresh and improved design for the character.
It may include changes to his facial features, hairstyle, clothing, or other visual aspects to give him a more appealing or unique appearance.
By applying this mod, players can experience a refreshed version of Brynjolf that aligns better with their preferences or the overall aesthetic of the game.
This overhaul allows for a more visually engaging and satisfying experience when interacting with Brynjolf throughout the gameplay.
9. Friendly Brynjolf
The “Brynjolf Marriage and Follower Mod” is a modification for a game that introduces new possibilities for the character Brynjolf.
This mod allows players to marry Brynjolf, a prominent character in the game, and also enables him to become a follower, accompanying the player on their adventures.
By implementing this mod, players can engage in a romantic relationship with Brynjolf and have him as a loyal companion by their side.
This expansion of Brynjolf’s role provides an enhanced level of immersion and personalization to the gameplay experience, allowing players to further explore their connections with the characters in the game world.
8. Brynjolf Mannequins (LE)
If you found this weird corner of the Internet, you must really like Brynjolf – so here’s a way to bask in his glory even in your own player home.
Brynjolf Mannequins replaces every mannequin in the game with Brynjolf’s model, placing multiple copies of Brynjolf in your player home and other places around the world.
He’s definitely more charming than a mannequin, though it can be confusing if you ever forget you have this installed.
7. Immersive Brynjolfs (LE)
If you want even more Brynjolf in your game, I’ll suggest one of the most insane Skyrim mods I’ve seen in a while.
Immersive Brynjolfs – also known as Fantastic Brynjolfs and Where to Find Them – is an ode to all things Brynjolf that celebrates this masterful thief by opening the doors to the Brynjolf multiverse.
This mod places a bunch of new Brynjolfs in Skyrim for you to find along your travels.
These include Russian Brynjolf, American Brynjolf, Angry Brynjolf, and even a Daedric Brynjolf.
You’ll even get a new spell to summon an Assistant Brynjolf to help you with any Thieves Guild business.
I can’t say how this will improve your game, but it’ll definitely make it more “Brynjolfy.”
6. Mortal Brynjolf
Not everyone loves Brynjolf as much as the creators of the previous mods.
In fact, some people would rather see him dead.
Regrettably for the haters, Brynjolf is flagged as essential in the game’s code, meaning you won’t be able to end him no matter how much damage you inflict. You could say he’s protected by Nocturnal if you want a lore-friendly explanation.
If you really need Brynjolf to bite the dust for some roleplaying reason, Mortal Brynjolf is the mod for you.
This mod removes Brynjolf’s invulnerability, forcing him to submit to Arkay’s cycle of birth and death.
5. Brynjolf Has Time for You
Brynjolf loves telling you all about how busy he is planning heists and forging ledgers to lose time chatting with you – but as the Guild Master, he’s forced to.
The best way to get his attention is the Brynjolf Has Time for You mod, which makes him a recruitable follower and even a potential marriage partner.
Finally, you can get him to whisper sweet nothings into your ear with his Scottish accent.
In addition, this mod adds several improvements to the Thieves Guild hideout, including a private room for the Dragonborn, a bath, and some other goodies.
4. Brynjolf & Vex Companions
Even though Brynjolf is a pretty likeable character, he doesn’t have some of the physical traits that a Dragonborn with high standards needs.
If you prefer younger guys, the Brynjolf & Vex Companions mod will give him a second chance to win your heart.
This makes Brynjolf and a few other members of the Thieves Guild look like the main love interest in someone’s dramatic Wattpad self-insert dream.
Also, the change makes him a possible person to marry.
Even if you don’t want to marry him, he will still be happy to go on trips with you and teach you how to sneak.
3. A Change in Management
I 100% get that Skyrim is a power fantasy, which is why your character can climb the ranks of every guild so quickly.
Still, I never liked being forced into a leadership role in all of them. Can’t I just be an enthusiastic member?
A Change in Management lets you cede your Guild Master position to Brynjolf, who’s clearly more prepared for the role. He’s not only more experienced, but he has real, deep relationships with other members of the guild.
The change is seamless and immersive, and you’re liable to forget this wasn’t a vanilla option.
2. Jampion NPCs – Male NPC Overhaul
Jampion NPCs is one of the most complete fixes for male NPCs in Skyrim, and you can bet that Brynjolf is part of it.
This mod keeps our favorite expert thief’s rough and tough look while bringing out some of his more handsome and powerful traits. In other words, he doesn’t look as much like a dirty potato that was just dug up.
You’ll get the best results if you use this mod with something like Tempered Skins to change the skin’s appearance.
1. Pandorable’s NPCs – Males
Pandorable is a name to be reckoned with in the Skyrim modding community thanks to their rich contribution to the world of hot and attractive followers and NPCs.
While most people go to them looking for awe-striking remodels for their favorite female characters, their makeover of male characters is just as high-quality.
Pandorable NPCs – Males turns everyone into hotties regardless of race or social status.
Even Faendal looks good with this installed!
This mod will make Brynjolf absolutely breathtaking. He has that roguish appeal so many people can’t get enough of in characters like Han Solo and even Jack Sparrow.
Get this if you want to feel hot and bothered every time you walk into the Thieves Guild’s den.
