Louis Letrush is a Breton found at the Bee and Barb in Riften.


Promises to KeepEdit

When first met at the Bee and Barb, he gives the Dragonborn the quest Promises to Keep, in which the Dragonborn must steal Sibbi Black-Briar's horse Frost and give it to Letrush. This has been arranged between Sibbi and Letrush.

After the quest, depending on which paths were taken, Louis Letrush can be the trigger of some random encounters:

  • Whether or not Maven was informed about Louis' plan, if the Dragonborn delivered Frost to Letrush, the latter will be encountered along the road later on while being attacked by Hired Thugs. The thug will inform Letrush that "Maven sends her regards" before killing him.
  • In case Maven Black-Briar was informed about Louis Letrush's plans, the encounter with the hired thug attacking Louis Letrush still occurs. If the Dragonborn kills the thug before Louis can die, he will attack the Dragonborn while voicing his suspicions that the Dragonborn must be the root of all his problems by having told Maven about his plan to steal Frost.
  • In case the Dragonborn double-crosses Louis Letrush in order to keep Frost, a thug will be sent by Letrush instead to take revenge on the Dragonborn.

Even if he's not dead, this should be the last time Louis Letrush can be found (See reported bugs for exceptions).


  • If the Dragonborn chooses to keep Frost, Letrush will depart for the Whiterun stables and can be followed the whole way there, winding his way through Skyrim's wilds, occasionally stopping to examine or loot a dead animal, and sometimes or veering off the road and stopping for a few seconds to survey the view before returning to the path.
