Aela's Shield is part of the Companions quest "Take Up Arms." Eorlund Gray-Mane will ask that the shield be delivered to Aela the Huntress, who can be found in Jorrvaskr. Once the shield has been delivered, it will remain in her inventory, so it can be traded if she is an active follower or stolen.
- If the Dragonborn has a steel shield in their inventory when transporting Aela's Shield to her, looking in the inventory will see that the player has two Aela's Shields. This is because it is identical to the steel shield in everything but name.
