Lami is a Nord and adept-level alchemist from Morthal. She can be found in the Thaumaturgist's Hut in Morthal, where she is the shopkeeper. Here she lives with her husband Jorgen in their house across the bridge by the wood mill.
She claims have been taught the basics of Alchemy from a temple healer who at the time was on a pilgrimage. When she has little else to do, Lami claims to often mix various ingredients together in hopes of discovering new potions, but usually goes through most of her stock in the process while having little success.
Lami and Alva share a bond together. This becomes apparent when Alva is killed in plain sight, after which Lami will become unfriendly to the Dragonborn from that moment on. It is not revealed if the two are friends, or if they share a bond for different reasons. The bond can be further revealed by requesting the relationship rank between Lami and Alva from the command console.
Lami and Alva's bond may in fact be some kind of arrangement. As a vampire, Alva has access to questionable potion ingredients such as human hearts and flesh, while Lami often tells the Dragonborn about her fondness for constantly trying out new things when making potions.
Lami teaches Alchemy at the Adept-level. If the player is at the level she is, she cannot train the Dragonborn any further.
Lami requests a copy of Song of the Alchemists, in return for a point in Alchemy.
Lami, along with her husband, Jorgen, are some of the "strong citizens" ordered by the Jarl to accompany the player character to Movarth's Lair.
Lami "Um...this place looks dangerous."
Jorgen "And it looks creepy, too."
Benor "And it's full of vampires?"
Thonnir "Cowards! We must kill the vampires! We have to make them pay!"
Lurbuk "Of course. But why not let him/her [referencing player character] go in first?"
- If the player steals from a shelf in her store, "Thaumaturgist's Hut," eventually she will say to them, "The gods know what you've done."
- In her shop on the second floor there is a bowl with skooma bottles.
