"Lucien isn't here very often. His duties with the Black Hand keep him very busy, so he trusts me to keep the Sanctuary in order."
―Ocheeva[src]

TES4 Ocheeva

Ocheeva is an Argonian, and one of the leaders of the Dark Brotherhood. She and her twin brother, Teinaava, are both Shadowscales, Argonians with The Shadow birthsign that are sent to the Dark Brotherhood to become assassins. While the real head of the sanctuary is Lucien Lachance, he trusts Ocheeva to run things while he is away.

Life before the brotherhoodEdit

Ocheeva was born during the reign of Emperor Uriel Septim VII in the Imperial Province of Black Marsh, also known as Argonia. She and her twin brother, Teinaava, were born with the Shadow as a birthsign and subsequently were enrolled in the ranks of the Shadowscale.

She and her brother adapted quickly to the ways of the assassin. They served the Royal Court of Argonia with honor and dignity and always completed their missions as assassins of the Royal Court of Argonia. During their time in Argonia, they befriended a fellow Shadowscale, Scar-Tail. Once the siblings came of age, they were transferred to the Dark Brotherhood.

Life in the Dark BrotherhoodEdit

In the Dark Brotherhood, she advanced quickly within the ranks until she reached the prestigious rank of Executioner. From then on she was the unofficial head of the Cheydinhal Sanctuary and its members. She works with the more experienced recruits and gives them the more challenging contracts.

Personality and traitsEdit

Ocheeva was relatively young when she was murdered during the Purification. She has orange eyes like most Argonians, and green and purple scales. She was warm and cordial to her fellow family members and was fully devoted to the Dark Brotherhood and Lucien Lachance.

FateEdit

Ocheeva was killed by the Hero alongside the rest of the members of the Cheydinhal Sanctuary during "The Purification." It was believed that one of its members had become a risk but it was unclear who. However, the traitor was not killed and somehow was overlooked as one of the possible risks.

DialogueEdit

Show: Welcome to the Family
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"Greetings, brother! Greetings! I am Ocheeva, mistress of this Sanctuary. Lucien has told me all about you. I welcome you to the Dark Brotherhood! You stand now in our Sanctuary. May it serve as your new home, a place of comfort and security whenever the need arises. When you're ready for work, go and speak with Vicente Valtieri. He handles all assignments for new family members. But before you go, please accept this gift from your new family. A unique set of armor, lighter than normal leather and black as the Void. Now, I've kept you long enough. Vicente is waiting. You'll find him in his quarters. Go now, my child, and may Sithis go with you."

Lucien Lachance "Lucien isn't here very often. His duties with the Black Hand keep him very busy, so he trusts me to keep the Sanctuary in order."
Night Mother "To employ the services of the Dark Brotherhood, one must perform a ritual to the Night Mother. Only then will she heed their prayers for murder. It is an ancient rite, this Black Sacrament. All across the Empire, every day, people beseech the Night Mother to take the lives of others. After a person performs the ritual, they are contacted by a Speaker. Gold is exchanged, and details worked out. So it has always been."
Sanctuary "Ours is not the only Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary. There are others, hidden throughout Cyrodiil, each one overseen by a Speaker of the Black Hand."
Rumors "I...I've heard some talk. This past year, some family members have been found...murdered! Could there be an assassin among assassins?"
Sithis "Those fools in the Church and their so-called "Nine Divines." There is no divinity beyond the eternal and terrible rule of our Dread Father, Sithis."

"Go now, dear family member, and may the Night Mother wrap you in her cold, loving embrace."

After talking to Teinaava:

"Greetings once more. I know you must be eager to get to work. I think you'll find the task Vicente has available to be quite intriguing."

Shadowscales "I see you have been speaking with Teinaava. What he says is true. All our lives we have lived together in the shadows. We are egg mates. Twins. We were taken at birth, and given to the Dark Brotherhood. We returned to Black Marsh as Shadowscales, trained in the arts of stealth and murder. Together we served our nation as spies and assassins, as all Shadowscales do. When we came of age we joined the family as one. And here we are."

"Go now, dear family member, and may the Night Mother wrap you in her cold, loving embrace."

Show: The Renegade Shadowscale
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"Greetings, Brother. I do hope you are well."

Scar-Tail "Scar-Tail is a traitor to Argonia, and a blight upon Tamriel! Kill him, as my brother requests, and we will be forever in your debt."

"Go now, dear family member, and may the Night Mother wrap you in her cold, loving embrace."

After giving an Argonian Heart to Teinaava:

"Greetings, Brother. I do hope you are well."

Scar-Tail "Scar-Tail now lies with the worms of Bogwater, thanks to you. I am forever indebted to you, Brother."

"Go now, dear family member, and may the Night Mother wrap you in her cold, loving embrace."

Show: The Lonely Wanderer
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"Ah, greetings, I have been waiting for you. As Vicente surely told you, your time working with him has come to an end. From now on, you will receive all assignments directly from me. In fact, your next contract is available now."

Contract "In the Imperial City there lives a High Elf who must be removed from existence. Finding this person may prove... challenging. Are you interested?"
Not just yet. Maybe later. "As you wish. Don't worry, the contract will be available whenever you're ready."
Always. I accept the contract. "I knew you wouldn't be able to resist. Your target is a High Elf named Faelian. He lives somewhere in the Imperial City, and fancies long walks. Unfortunately, that's all we know. We don't know which district he calls home, which establishments he frequents, or anything about his schedule. This contract will require a bit of detective work. I suggest you to speak to your fellow Brothers and Sisters and see if they can offer any advice. Ah yes, there is one more thing. The Imperial City is also home to an Imperial Legion captain named Adamus Phillida. Do you know who that is?"
No, I've never heard of him. "Phillida has dedicated his life to eradicating the Dark Brotherhood, and he becomes rather irate when our duties take us to the Imperial City."
Phillida! That self-righteous lapdog! "Quite. Then you know he has dedicated his life to eradicating the Dark Brotherhood, and doesn't appreciate when we operate within the Imperial City."
[Say nothing.] "Heed my words. Phillida has dedicated his life to eradicating the Dark Brotherhood. He will not tolerate our operations within the Imperial City."
"When that happens, he tends to make our lives uncomfortable. Let's not give the good captain any reason to go poking around in our affairs, hmm? If possible, do away with Faelian someplace out of the way. Definitely indoors, with no other people around. A secure location, with no witnesses. This will make it look like a simple murder. Phillida will be none the wiser, and you'll receive a nice bonus. Now go, and may Sithis go with you."

If approached again:

"While Faelian walks the streets of the Imperial City, the Night Mother weeps in her restlessness. Kill this High Elf, and all will be well."

'The High Elf Faelian lives in the Imperial City, and fancies long walks. Speak with your fellow family members. They may offer their insights."

After killing Faelian:

"The High Elf Faelian now swims in the maelstrom of darkness at the feet of our Dread Father, Sithis. And, there were no witnesses to your handiwork. Because of the discretion you exercised, Captain Phillida will not suspect the Dark Brotherhood was involved, and will not meddle in our affairs. Here is your reward and bonus. Both have been well earned. Go now and rest, and may the Night Mother guard your dreams."

If the bonus was forfeited:

"Yes, Faelian has been killed, but you did not exercise discretion. How many witnesses were there? We may never know. But you can be sure Adamus Phillida will suspect the Dark Brotherhood was involved, and will launch an investigation. I had hoped to avoid such an... irritation. Here is your reward, but the bonus is forfeit. Do try to be more careful next time, hmm?"

Show: Bad Medicine
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"I have another contract, when you're ready. One that will rely on your ability to remain fully undetected."

Contract "Far to the west there lives a fierce warlord and his company of loyal mercenaries. Your target is the warlord. Do you accept this contract?"
I can't accept right now. "Very well. Return to me when you are ready, and the contract is yours."
Yes, of course I accept. "Excellent. Now listen closely. Nestled in the mountains to the west lies Fort Sutch. It is the home of the warlord Roderick and his mercenaries. Roderick has recently taken ill. He now lies in eternal slumber, kept alive only by the daily administration of a powerful medicine. You must infiltrate Fort Sutch, find Roderick's medicine, and replace it with a poisoned bottle I will provide. But you must remain undetected! Whomever arranged this contract wants it to look like Roderick died from his illness, so discretion is essential. Attack no one! Be seen by no one! If you are detected, the poisoning will fail, and Roderick must be killed in some other manner. That will, of course, forfeit your bonus."

If approached again:

"Roderick may lie near death, but dead he is not. Until his soul has passed, our client -- and Sithis -- will not be satisfied."

Contract "It's uncertain exactly what illness Roderick has contracted. But don't worry, it's probably not contagious. He he he he he."

After the poison is placed:

"Ah, so you infiltrated Fort Sutch, remained undetected, and replaced the medicine with the poison I provided. You are truly a master of shadow! It pleases me greatly to offer you this reward, and a well-earned bonus. Go now. Rest. I'll have another contract ready whenever you are."

If the bonus is forfeited:

"Roderick is dead, and Sithis is appeased. Unfortunately, the same is not true of the client who arranged this contract. You were to avoid detection and kill Roderick by means of poison, yet you failed to follow these parameters. Here is your reward, minus any bonus. It would seem you and Gogron share a similar... style. Now go, and do be more careful in the future."

Show: Whodunit?
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"So, are you ready to mingle with the doomed house guests? The contract is waiting."

Contract "Do you like parties? Because you've been invited to one. Of course you'll be killing all the other guests. Are you ready to attend?"
No, I'm not ready just yet. "All right. But don't take too long. The other guests are already assembled, and they're waiting on you."
Yes, I'm ready. Tell me more. "Splendid. You need to go to the city of Skingrad, to the large house known as Summitmist Manor. There you will meet up with five very unlucky guests. In order to receive your bonus, you must kill each guest secretly, one by one. If anyone sees you commiting murder, the bonus is forfeit. The guests believe there is a chest of gold hidden in the house, and have agreed to be locked inside until one of them finds it. In fact, the guests believe the key to the manor is inside the chest, and only by satisfying their greed will they be allowed to leave. Poor fools. There is, of course, no chest of gold. The guests will find no key. After you arrive, the doors will be locked behind you, as everyone expects. When all the guests lie dead, you will be free to leave. Now go, see the doorman at Summitmist Manor. He will explain the rest. Have fun."
Contract "Each guest, at some point in the past, wronged their mysterious host. Now he's hired us to exact his revenge."

If approached again:

"The other guests are waiting for you at Summitmist Manor. I suggest you get going."

After completing the contract:

"Well done! Not only did you kill the five guests, you acted as an agent of terror and grief. You have earned your reward and bonus, Assassin. I lay upon you now the Night Mother's Blessing. May she walk with you always, and guide your hand as you act in accordance with the Five Tenets."

If the bonus was forfeited:

"You managed to kill the five house guests, yes. But your inability to remain undetected will cost you. I must admit, I'm disappointed. This was an important contract, and you stumbled through it like a drunk. Leave me now, and think upon your failure."

Show: Permanent Retirement
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"Greetings once more, assassin. When you're ready, I have a most important contract. One that has been sanctioned by the Black Hand itself."

Contract "Do you recall the name Adamus Phillida? The Imperial Legion pest? It's time he joined Sithis in the Void. Think you're up to the task?"
No, I can't accept right now. "Do you realize what you're saying? Do you fully understand the honor you are rejecting? For your own sake, return to me when you're ready."
It would be an honor. I accept. "Adamus Phillida has spent his entire career investigating the Dark Brotherhood, interrupting our contracts, killing our family members! We tried to eliminate Phillida, of course, but failed on three separate occasions. He's a powerful man, and was surrounded by powerful associates. Now the Legion's pig years of service have come to an end. He has retired. Phillida must not be allowed such a victory! His destiny is... darker. Phillida now resides in Leyawiin, in the City Watch barracks, an honored guest of the soldiers there. He is, in fact, more vulnerable than ever."
What must I do, Ocheeva? "The Black Hand has sanctioned the Rose of Sithis. It is a magic arrow specifically enchanted to kill its target. In this case, Phillida."
I will slay him like the pig he is! "Ha ha ha ha ha! Yes! Yes! The Black Hand has sanctioned the Rose of Sithis. It is an enchanted arrow that will kill Phillida... instantly!"
[Say nothing.] "Listen well, my child! The Black Hand has sanctioned the Rose of Sithis. It is an enchanted arrow that will kill Phillida... instantly!"
"As long as the arrow hits Phillida, he will die. But it cannot pierce armor! Shoot while Phillida is armored, and the Rose will be wasted. Travel to Leyawiin. Track Phillida. Learn his schedule. Observe when he removes that blasted Legion armor! And then, let fly the Rose of Sithis! Kill Phillida in any way, Rose or not, and the contract is complete. But to receive a bonus, you must go beyond murder. You must send a message! Once Phillida is dead, take the very finger from his corpse, the one that bears an Imperial Legion signet ring! Deposit this finger in the desk of Phillida's successor, in his office in the Prison Barracks, in the Imperial City! Do this, and the bonus is yours."
Contract "Adamus Philida will find no rest in retirement. No, his soul will endure a kind of eternal suffering known only to those who have angered Sithis."

If approached again:

"Adamus Phillida has been a thorn in the Dark Brotherhood's side for far too long. Kill the pig, so Sithis can enslave his soul for all eternity!"

When Phillida is killed:

"Adamus Phillida is dead! I could feel my heart swell with the Night Mother's love the moment that Imperial pig issued his last breath! You have done a great service to the Dark Brotherhood today, Assassin. Your reward is well earned. You also managed to leave Phillida's severed finger as a warning to his successor. Well done! Your bonus, 500 additional gold coins, is well-earned! Go now. Get some rest. Sithis knows you've earned it. When you're ready for another contract, you need only ask."

If the Finger is not placed at the Imperial Legion Offices:

"Adamus Phillida is dead! I could feel my heart swell with the Night Mother's love the moment that Imperial pig issued his last breath! You have done a great service to the Dark Brotherhood today, Assassin. Your reward is well earned. Sadly, you chose not to leave Phillida's severed finger as a warning to his successor. Your laziness has cost you your bonus, I'm afraid. Now go. Get some rest. I'll have another contract ready for you shortly."

Show: The Purification
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"Ah, Assassin, I must speak with you. It is quite urgent. A sealed letter just arrived from a Dark Brotherhood courier. I recognize this type of parcel. It contains sealed orders. It's addressed to you... from Lucien Lachance. You must open these sealed orders immediately and follow their instructions to the letter. It would seem the Black Hand itself has a task for you."

If approached again:

"Assassin! Why are you still here? Have you not opened your sealed orders? Go now! The Black Hand obviously has need of your abilities!"

After talking to Lucien Lachance:

"You've seen Lucien Lachance, then? Good, good. I know whatever task he has for you will be carried out with skill and discretion."

Contract "Lucien Lachance's word is law. Whatever contract he has given you must be carried out, without question."

"Go now, dear family member, and may the Night Mother wrap you in her cold, loving embrace."
