She is the mother of Sylgja. Her husband can often be heard to mourn that she never spends enough time at the mine, instead being out adventuring. She admires the Dragonborn's adventurous spirit, stating that "we should swap stories sometime." After doing a quest for her, she can be acquired as a follower.
As a follower, Annekke's stats are geared towards the Thief playstyle; she has very good levels of skill in Light Armor and Archery, with good support skills in One-Handed and Block. Unfortunately, her Sneak skill is very mediocre.
Her stats appear to be identical to Derkeethus, another potential follower who lives at Darkwater Crossing.
Like Roggi Knot-Beard, Annekke Crag-Jumper may not offer her quest the first time she is spoken to. The Dragonborn may have to revisit Darkwater Crossing several times before she offers her radiant quest. She also will not offer the radiant quest if the Dragonborn already has an active "Kill the Bandit Leader" quest from Ahtar or Brunwulf Free-Winter.

PC 360 PS3 If one has completed the Thieves Guild quest "Summerset Shadows," the bandit leader, Linwe, already have been killed and it may be impossible to complete the miscellaneous quest to gain her as a follower.
PC(Fix) To circumvent this bug, one should open the console, click on Linwe's body, and type resurrect. This will revive Linwe, and then the Dragonborn should kill him, completing the quest requirements.
360(Fix) Workaround: To force the game to give a bandit location other than Uttering Hills, before talking to Annekke, the Dragonborn should go to Uttering Hills Cave, wipe out all the remaining Summerset Shadows and go to the spot where Linwe was fell (if there are no active quests involving Uttering Hills, his body should be gone), then leave and immediately fast travel to Darkwater Crossing. With the game now registering Uttering Hills as cleared, Annekke should now give the Dragonborn a different location for Kill the Bandit Leader.
Note: Saving before attempting to talk to Annekke is advised. If Linwe's body still appears, the game may not register Uttering Hills as cleared, resulting in the glitch recurring, if Linwe was killed recently, it can take up to a week to disappear. It may take few times clearing the cave. Also, the Dragonborn should make sure to kill all Summerset Shadows outside of the cave as well as those within.
If the Dragonborn just wants the quest to disappear from your misc quest menu, they can kill Annekke and the quest will fail.
PC 360 PS3 Sometimes when trying to talk to Annekke, she will not bring up any dialog options at all.
PC(Fix) If Anneke does not offer her quest (Favor104), opening the console, selecting her, and using the command setrelationshiprank player 2 will make it possible to recruit her as a follower.
PC Sometimes when the bandit leader is killed the quest log will update, but then disappear from journal, there will be no marker at darkwater camp and Annekke will not speak to the Dragonborn to finish the quest.
Annekke may give her quest, after failing to do so initially, if the Dragonborn leaves and revisits Darkwater Crossing several times.
