Jouane Manette is an Elder Breton residing in Rorikstead.


He fought alongside Rorik during the Great War. When Rorik was seriously wounded by an Aldmeri soldier, Jouane saved his life.

After the war, Rorik went back to the settlement of Rorikstead which he owned. When Jouane is asked how he came to Rorikstead, he will say "We were as close as kinsmen, and when Rorik returned home I came with him. I am happy to spend my twilight years here with my good friend."

He also teaches Sissel, as she says, "Someday soon I'll stop being afraid. Jouane is teaching me magic. He says I'm really good."


Lemkil will send a letter to the Dragonborn if Jouane is killed, saying:

"I am aware of your recent assault on Jouane Manette. Rest assured that I have no interest in that particular matter. I do, however, have an interest in your willingness to employ force when the need arises. If you are willing to assist me, I will gladly pay for your troubles. Next time you are visiting Rorikstead, please call on me."


  • Sissel wants him to teach her "fire magic," but he will only agree to teach her how to put out candles.
  • He does not believe in Talos worship.
