"I'm running food and supplies to the miners. Don't pay much, but they let me sleep by the fire in the inn most nights."

Alesan is a Redguard orphan boy who is eligible for adoption by the Dragonborn.


He sells food to the miners in Dawnstar to make money to survive.

Alesan and his father were on a boat when his father became sick. The crew dropped the two off in Dawnstar. A few days later his father died. At night, he can be found sleeping on the floor in the Windpeak Inn.

The Dragonborn can adopt him with the Hearthfire add-on.
