8 Things About Skyrim Girls You Didn’t Expect

Even after multiple playthroughs, there’s always more to find in Skyrim. Here are 8 different things that you might have missed when it comes to the ladies of Skyrim. Needless to say, there’s going to be some spoilers so you’ve been warned.

8. Helgi’s Ghost


There’s a quest in the city of Morthal, where you encounter a man whose home burned down, killing his daughter and his wife. Don’t feel too bad for him, he found a new lover the very next day. Very suspicious. You’re paid to investigate, when you come across this creepy ghost of a little girl.

The creepiest part is that she has no idea how serious the situation is, she’s still just an innocent little kid, unscathced by the horrors she’s experienced.

7. Eisa from Whitewatch

If you read the the Bandit Chief’s journal in Whitewatch Tower, you’ll find out that Eisa and Ra’jiir were the sole surivors of the White River Watch mutiny. You’ll find the pair in Frostmere Crypt, and if you come across Eisa Blackthorn’s journal you can find out how she was able to once against escape bandits.

6. Elisif the Fair

There is some deleted content that was uncovered which hints at the fact that there may have been plans for the Dragonborn to marry Elisif the Fair, and become the King of Skyrim. If you go ahead and kill her, there will be new dialogue added to various NPC’s around the game, for instance:

Windhelm Guard: It is whispered the one of the Daedric Princes himself is behind the murder of Elisif. It would seem even the nobility of Oblivion favors our cause.”

5. Argi Farseer

Argi didn’t make the cut, but if she would have been included in the final game, she’d be the sister of Jarl Idgrod Ravencrone of Hjaalmarch. It’s alluded to that the Jarl has supernatural abilities to see into the future. Based on her last name, it sounds like Argi had similar powers, so this helps to confirm things. If Jarl Idgrod Ravencrone has these powers, that leads to some interesting possibilties if you read between the lines of the story.

4. Faceless Girl


Here’s another creepy encounter with a little girl, who is just casually missing her face, due to a glitch. If you’ve experienced this glitch, you might not have realized it was a glitch at first, and definitely expected her to address the elephant in the room, and as a well-mannered person you certainly wouldn’t want to bring it up and embarrass her about the whole no face thing.

3. Killing Astrid

When you’re in the abandoned shack with Astrid, you can kill her. It’s fitting, aftearll, since she does say “You aren’t leaving this shack until somebody dies.”

If you kill a hostage, you’ll begin the Brotherhood quest line, but if you decide to kill Astrid instead, you’ll begin a quest called “Destroy the Dark Brotherhood”. It’s not that great of a path to take, you just end up purging an area of the Brotherhood and that’s it.

2. Ranmir’s Relationship Troubles

Ranmir is a local from Winterhold. His soulmate ran away because he’s an angry drunk and she didn’t feel safe. You can try to track her down, but the quest won’t even show up in your journal. You’ll learn that she joined the Thieves Guild and was promptly killed. Ranmir uses this knowledge as a wakeup call and gets his life back together.

1. Wedding Crasher

If you marry Ysolda, there’s a chance that a Khajiit will show up to the wedding, which is a rare occurance. It requires you to have completed her Shipment quest, first.

Also, hate to be the one to break it to you, but your wife is a drug dealer and she specializes in Sleeping Tree Sap.
