"Alain Dufont took my life! And now I'm taking his!"
―Muiri during Mourning Never Comes.[src]

Muiri (pronounced / / MYU-RE) 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 heirloom. Once his plan was discovered, the Shatter-Shields drove Muiri 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

The Dragonborn first encounters Muiri In the quest Mourning Never Comes. She becomes a candidate for marriage if her contract is fully completed, meaning both the main target and the optional one are 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 something is bought from her) are possible targets for feeding the Ebony Blade.


  •  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   Solution: 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.

    • If i remember right if you ask a spouse to move and stick around to see if they do it you kind of distract them and they don't move, might be ...
    • I bought breezehome and she moved there, haven't tried sending her to lakeview yet.
  • Marriage problem

    • I have completed the quest and have the amulet but I can't marry Muiri
    • You need to have killed Nilsine DURING the quest, or you can't marry her. Killing Alain alone will just make Muiri a friend, not a marriage candidate.
