"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. 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.
  • 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.
