She and her husband, Leigelf, have recently separated and now run competing mining operations.
Beitild's operation is centered within Dawnstar itself. She works hard to make sure Iron-Breaker Mine yields more profit than her husband's Quicksilver Mine and can often be seen "motivating" her not-so-enthusiastic employees to work harder by threatening their jobs.
- Accepting the Dark Brotherhood contract to kill Beitild will make normal dialogue with her impossible.
- If Leigelf is killed, she will occasionally comment that she misses him far more than she thought she would.
- Beitild can be killed during a dragon attack, allowing for easy completion of the Dark Brotherhood contract to kill her.
- If the Dragonborn kills Beitild while "hidden" but approaches her corpse and a guard sees, the guard will attack but there will be no bounty on the Dragonborn. Leaving Dawnstar will end hostilities.
- If anyone kills Leigelf, she will send a Hired Thug to kill them. On the thug is a contract saying "Here's the sum we agreed upon. I trust that you will make [insert Dragonborn name] pay for killing my dear Leigelf. Return to me with proof of the deed. If you run afoul of the law, I will pay your bounty."
- In some cases, if the player kills Leigelf, Beitild will send a courier with a letter that reads: "I know you killed him, don't worry, I won't tell anyone. In fact, I wanted to thank you. He won't be missed. -- Beitild"
- As she is also a target for a Dark Brotherhood contract, she is potentially a good candidate to kill with the Ebony Blade in order to upgrade it, if she is sold ore at least once prior to accepting the contract.
