|Quest Giver||Rochelle the Red or a Random Bandit|
- Read Note.
- Travel to <Radiant Location>.
- Pay ransom or kill the bandits.
- Free spouse.
- Rochelle the Red may actually never be seen as she may not deliver the note to the Dragonborn and/or not be found at the location that her bandits are at.
- The quest may end suddenly if you enter the house before going to the rescue. To avoid this, upon receiving the quest go directly to the site where your spouse is held without entering your house.
- Whatever the way you end the quest, your spouse may become bugged, with an almost constant, strange backwards-walking animation. He or she may also get stuck along the way from the bandit lair back to your home. This can be fixed on PC by clicking on your spouse in the console and using the "Resurrect" command. Another way to fix this bug is to recruit your spouse as a follower, then beat them up until they leave your service, but not enough to turn them hostile. They should then be able to walk freely.
- Another "cure" for the backwards-walking is to have your spouse follow you and then jump to a known dragon lair. Hopefully, the dragon will do enough damage (the spouse drops to one knee) without actually killing them. This seems to "knock" the bug out of them as well.
