Vilkas and his twin brother, Farkas, were brought to the Companions when they were only children by a man named Jergen, who rescued them from a circle of Necromancers. Vilkas does not view Jergen to be as fatherly as his brother does, and may even resent him. He makes it clear he does not care. It is said that Vilkas is the brains out of the two. Vilkas is one of the members available for marriage after you complete the Companion quest Glory of the Dead.
