"Darling! I've been waiting for you to return, to consummate our love!"

Moira is a hagraven who lives in Witchmist Grove.


A Night to RememberEdit

Upon talking to Ysolda as part of the quest, the Dragonborn will find out that a marriage proposal was made to a woman met while intoxicated. After seeking the woman out, Moira turns out to be a Hagraven, and says that she is waiting to consummate the promised marriage. When asked to return the wedding ring, she becomes hostile, claiming that the Dragonborn wishes to give the ring to "that hussy Esmerelda with the dark feathers."

Moira may also send hired thugs after the Dragonborn if anything is stolen from her, or if her sister Anise is killed.


  • If Witchmist Grove is not visited during the quest, and is travelled to after it, she will be standing outside the shack and will not be hostile. She cannot be talked to and will have the Wedding Ring in her inventory.
  • Sometimes, she may not even be encountered. Instead, Ysolda will direct the Dragonborn to a tower full of mages to kill before a portal appears to transport them to the wedding reception to meet Sanguine.
  • While trying to get the ring from her, she will say "My precious." This is a reference to the character Gollum from The Lord of the Rings.
