"My favourite drinking buddy! Lets 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."
  • "Sure. Whatever."
  • "What? Why you lookin' at me?"
  • "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 is naked he will say, "Either I'm drunk or you're naked.  Possibly both."
  • If the Dragonborn helps Brenuin and he dies, a courier will give a Letter of Inheritance for 100 septims (90 septims 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 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.


  • 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.
