Not to be confused with Keerasa.
"I can't stand this city, It's impossible to make a decent living here."


Keerava is an Argonian innkeeper residing at The Bee and Barb in Riften.


Keerava is the innkeeper of the Bee and Barb located in Riften, and she is normally very welcoming to most customers. Outside of Skyrim, her family owns and runs a farm in Morrowind.

Keerava works with her love interest Talen-Jei, who regularly serves their patrons. He expresses his affection for her and pursues the making of her wedding ring.


Taking Care of BusinessEdit

She is the target for the Thieves Guild quest "Taking Care of Business."

If the Dragonborn comes back after taking the debt off Keerava for the aforementioned quest, Talen-Jei will dislike the Dragonborn and express his dislike for their actions against Keerava. He also expresses his love of Keerava to the Dragonborn and asks them to complete his special wedding ring to propose to her, which results in a miscellaneous quest.

A Cornered RatEdit

If one does not want to have to talk to Brynjolf about Esbern's location, Keerava can be talked to instead, where she will talk about where he is.


  • "If you've got the coin, you're welcome here. Otherwise, hit the road."
  • "What can I get you? Mead? Wine?"
  • "Looking for a place to stay?"


Maramal "People of Riften, heed my words. The return of the dragons is not mere coincidence. This is one of the signs. The signs that Lady Mara is displeased with your constant inebriation. Put down your flagons filled with your vile liquids, and embrace the teachings of the handmaiden of Kyne."
Keerava "No, no, Maramal...We talked about this...Talen..."
Maramal "Keerava, certainly we can come to some sort of understanding? These people must be made aware of the chaos they've sown."
Talen "Enough, Maramal. We've all heard of the dragons and their return. There's no need to use them as an excuse to harass our customers."
Maramal "Very well, Talen. I'll remove myself from this den of iniquity."
Talen "We're not kicking you out, just keep the sermons at the temple and let us all sit in peace."


  • Killing Talen-Jei will result in her discovering his body and saying, "By the gods, this can't be happening!" She will then run outside and later return to The Bee and Barb and sit in the counter. If approached, she will say "not now."
  • If the Dragonobrn chooses to give her "The Warmth of Mara," she will tell the Dragonborn she believes only in the "Good ol' Septim," referring to the Imperial currency.
  • It is revealed in "Taking Care of Business" that Keerava recently told Brynjolf to "go jump off the pier."
