"I'll sell just about anything, if it's worth my time. Keep that in mind, will you?"

Birna is a Nord pawnbroker living in Winterhold.

She owns the shop Birna's Oddments. Her brother is Ranmir, whom she is constantly fighting with. The Dragonborn can purchase the Coral Dragon Claw from her shop; after doing so, she tells them to take the claw to Yngol Barrow.


This section contains bugs related to Birna. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • Sometimes, Birna will never have the conversation option to buy or sell. The Coral Dragon Claw can still be bought, however.
  •  PC   PS3   Birna simply stands in front of her shop face to face with her brother and doesn't give any dialogue options about the Coral Dragon Claw at all.
    •  PC(fix)   Use the console command stopquest 000B2174. She will return to her daily routine.
  • Sometimes, Birna will provide all of the dialogue options, including the buy/sell option, but not the Coral Dragon Claw. The alternative is to just get the claw in Yngol Barrow, but sometimes it is not there either.
  • For an unknown reason, a character who has never even entered her store may be attacked by hired thugs, sent by Birna.
  • The game may fail to load Birna, which makes her totally disappear.
  • Birna may sell the Coral Dragon Claw, even if the Dragonborn already has it from Yngol Barrow.
