"My favorite drinking buddy! Let's get some mead."

Brenuin is a Redguard beggar and drunkard who lives in the city of Whiterun.


Argonian Ale ExtractionEdit

He asks the Dragonborn to steal an Argonian Ale from The Bannered Mare.


  • "I ain't done nothin'."
  • "That Heimskr's crazy. Him and his talk o' Talos. Wish he'd just shut up."
  • "What do you want?"
  • "Sure. Whatever."
  • "I don't owe you money, do I?"
  • "What? Why you lookin' at me?"
  • "You know... you ain't so bad. Here. Take this."


  • Whiterun market-stall owners are occasionally overheard yelling at him; most notably Ysolda, who will sometimes refuse to give him money for alcohol.
  • If the Dragonborn helps Brenuin and he dies, a courier will give a Letter of Inheritance for 100 GoldIcon (90 from the Jarl's tax) to the Dragonborn, which is quite a hefty sum for a beggar.
  • Despite being a Redguard, when Brenuin converses with Ysolda he states that he is a Nord.  This may be an inconsistency left over from changes and adaptations across the course of the game's development.
  • Brenuin appears to be homeless, and is never seen sleeping; instead, he wanders around the city or loiters in the Whiterun Marketplace.
  • According to Lucia, Brenuin is the only one in Whiterun who cares for her and he got Lucia into begging; however he offers no dialogue concerning her.


This section contains bugs related to Brenuin. 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  , and  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • Sometimes Brenuin will be in stealth mode.
  • If you talk to him at midnight he may follow you home if you own Breezehome, and will stay there.  A way to fix this is to reload the autosave from entering Breezehome and he will not appear.
