Medresi Dran and the Wandering Dead is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Medresi Dran will speak to the Dragonborn when approached. Offering to help her will start the miscellaneous quest "Destroy the Draugr in Angarvunde." If the quest was not followed, the key may need to be obtained from Medresi by either pickpocketing or killing her.

Upon killing or pickpocketing Medresi Dran, the key can be looted and the quest "Discover the treasure of Angarvunde" will begin.


  • Medresi Dran will ask to the Dragonborn to kill three draugr that scared her men off (Level Dependent).
  • Report back to Medresi
  • Open the two gates blocking the path. Medresi will give the Dragonborn the key to two doors; one on each side of the main chamber in Angarvunde. The Dragonborn will have to go through both eventually (both doors are full of Draugr), and upon finishing each door, they will both return you to the main chamber.
  • Go through the open gates, Medresi Dran will run ahead of the Dragonborn into the treasure room only to be killed by the staircase shaft rising from the floor.
  • Enter the secret staircase that appeared upon the demise of Medresi, and proceed down the stairs to obtain the Animal Allegiance word (3/3) and a treasure chest. Learning the word of power will complete the quest.
