After escaping the dragon in the beginning of the game, some guy whose name I don't remember was helping me escape the dragon, and took me through a first area all the way to Riverwood. This is where I decided to try out stealing stuff; I killed the first three guys that chased me and entered a building afterwards, after which a fourth guy killed me. I didn't pay attention to the guy helping me...
Now, I have some questions:
Did he get killed in the background? Did he turn against me? Or did he end his journey with me?
What would have happened if I didn't go stealing wild but rather kept following his instructions?
