"Alain used me to get close to my friends. And now they all think I'm some kind of... monster. Alain Dufont took my life. And now I'm taking his."


Muiri is a Breton apothecary's assistant for Bothela at The Hag's Cure in Markarth.


Muiri grew up in Windhelm with Nilsine Shatter-Shield. After Nilsine's sister was killed, Muiri met Alain Dufont. Alain used Muiri's friendship with the clan in an attempt to steal the clan's valuables, including the family heriloom, the warhammer Aegisbane. Once his plan was discovered, the Shatter-Shields accused Muiri of being an accomplice in the crime and drove her from Windhelm to Markarth, where she now resides as an alchemist apprentice and assistant to Bothela at The Hag's Cure. She then planned to kill Alain and Nilsine for her revenge, but instead decided to contact the Dark Brotherhood. She had even made two bottles of a special poison for the occasion.


Mourning Never Comes

Muiri asks the player to kill her former lover and friend in this quest. She becomes a candidate for marriage if her contract is fully completed, meaning both the main target and the optional one are killed. She rewards the player with Muiri's Ring if Alain and Nilsine are both killed.


  • If the Dragonborn chooses to destroy the Dark Brotherhood, Muiri cannot be married.
  • Muiri will take over The Hag's Cure if Bothela is killed.
  • Her name is pronounced as MYU-RE, but when asking Veezara about the contract, he pronounces her name as MOI-RE.
  • She and Bothela (if you gave Stallion's Potion to Raerek, the Jarl's Steward) are possible targets for feeding the Ebony Blade.
  • Muiri cannot be married unless both Nilsine and Alain are killed.

  •  PC   360   PS3   After completing her contract, Muiri always greets the Dragonborn with the same line of dialog, thanking them for solving her "problem." This persists even after marrying her.
    •  PC(Fix)   Enter console command resetquest DB03 to remove the completion of her Dark Brotherhood quest, but this halts the progress of the Dark Brotherhood questline. Entering this console command after the quest line has been completed is recommended.
  •  PC   360   PS3   Occasionally, after killing both Alain and Nilsine, Muiri will not offer the option of marriage, even if the Dragonborn is wearing the amulet. To fix, drop the current amulet and purchase a new one from Maramal.
    • If Muiri still will not offer marriage, the console command player.setrelationshiprank 198f8 1 can be used to set her status to a point where she should offer marriage. As with other NPCs, this can also be used to make her marriagable without completing her quest.
  •  PC   360   PS3   If Alain has been killed before the quest is accepted, Muiri will not offer the Nilsine option, making the ring reward and marriage unattainable.
  •  PC   360   PS3   If Muiri is killed, the inheritance courier never arrives.
  •  PC   360   PS3   During the marriage ceremony, Muiri sometimes disappears and cannot be found outside the temple afterward. She should eventually go back to her normal schedule and can be found in the Silver-Blood Inn or The Hag's Cure.

    • player.setrelationshiprank 198f8 1 That should work since she's already in the potential marriage faction.
    • There is a way without commands. Cast fury  on Bothella, Muiri takes over the Hag's Cure. Invest with Muiri and she should become a marri...
