The Frightened Woman is a Nord character who may be met in a random encounter in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


She is dressed in rags, often wielding a Woodcutter's Axe, and says she has just escaped from the fort Mistwatch. She says the bandits 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, village, 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.


  • It is possible for her to appear and ask the Dragonborn to clear out Mistwatch after he/she has already done so.
