She is dressed in rags, often wielding a Woodcutter's Axe, and says she has just escaped from the abandoned fort Mistwatch. She says the robbers there imprisoned her, and she managed to escape. She asks for directions to a nearby town, and, once the Dragonborn gives them, she asks the Dragonborn to clear out Mistwatch.
After the encounter, she will travel to the nearest farm or mill (randomly determined based on the location of the encounter), where she will take up residence as a laborer. She has no additional dialogue, even after clearing out Mistwatch.
Since the encounter is random, she can appear anywhere: she has been found in the marshes between Solitude and Morthal, in the Reach, on the road from Riverwood to Falkreath, between Saarthal Excavation and Winterhold, and many other places. Amusingly, she may appear just up the road from White River Watch with the imposing sight of Dragonsreach looming in the nearby valley, making her need for directions to a nearby town quite humorous.
- It is possible for her to appear and ask the Dragonborn to clear out Mistwatch after he/she has already done so.
