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

Birna

Birna is a Nord pawnbroker living in Winterhold.

BackgroundEdit

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.

ConversationsEdit

Birna "We need coin, Ranmir, and you're not bringing home any."
Ranmir "And you would have me do what, join the College and prance around casting spells all day?"
Birna "Don't just walk away from me! Where do you think you're going?"
Ranmir "To the Inn for a drink, of course! Where else could I even go in this gods forsaken town?"
Birna "And what, you think that'll solve all your problems?"
Ranmir "Probably not, but it's worth a try!"

Birna "Please, come home. Just...come home."
Ranmir "Can't. Got at least two rounds to go. Why don't you go...sell something?"
Birna "Why? Because I'd rather be here trying to keep my only brother from drinking himself to death."
Ranmir "Ha! Drink ain't gonna kill me. Not today, anyway."

QuotesEdit

  • "Very funny. I'm sure you have noticed that the town isn't exactly overflowing with people." - When asked "Do you get much business way up here?"
  • "I do what's necessary so we can get by. Have to, since I can't count on my brother for anything."
  • "You looking for Ranmir? He's either passed out in bed, or working on winding up that way."
  • "Ranmir's a good for nothing drunk. We'd've lost the house by now if it were up to him."
  • "I've made a few bad deals. Been burned a few times. But mostly, I come out on top."

BugsEdit

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

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  360   Sometimes, Birna will never have the dialogue option to buy or sell. The Coral Dragon Claw can still be bought, however. Exiting and reentering dialogue can fix this.
  •  PC   PS3   Birna will stand in front of her shop facing her brother. She will not give any dialogue options about the Coral Dragon Claw, and will remain unresponsive.
    •  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 for the Coral Dragon Claw. The alternative is to get the claw in Yngol Barrow. However, intermittently, it may not appear within the Barrow.
  • For an unknown reason, even if the Dragonborn has never entered Brina's store, they may be attacked by hired thugs sent by her.
  • The game may fail to load Birna, which will make her disappear completely.
  • Birna may sell the Coral Dragon Claw, even if the Dragonborn already has it from Yngol Barrow.
  • Birna may not always be eligible for investment through the Speech skill.

    • She seems to really want to make sure you know she'll sell anything if it's worth her time. Could that mean she is a prostitute?
    • Wow, I think it means you're looking too far. She's just desperate because there's only a few potential customers in Winterho...
  • Birna following me and trying to attack me

    • So for a quest in the winterhold inn you will have to speak with the bartender and he will talk about ranmir her brother that he has lost ...
