"Maybe some other time I'll reveal your destiny, hmm? Tea leaves, palm reading, crystal scrying... Oooh! Maybe trepanning? Ha ha ha ha ha!"
―Olava the Feeble[src]

Olava the Feeble is a Nord fortune teller who lives in Whiterun. During the day, she is usually seen outside her house sitting on the bench. She will tell the Dragonborn their fortune if they have Olava's Token.


Olava has ties with the Dark Brotherhood and is the key to finding an upgraded version of Shrouded Armor called the Ancient Shrouded Armor. After reading the Dragonborn's fortune, she may exclaim "By Sithis, but you are a persistent one. Haven't I told you enough?"

Olava also predicts the attack on the Dark Brotherhood by the Penitus Oculatus, and about the Dawnstar Sanctuary. Unfortunately, the Dark Brotherhood members cannot be warned about the attack.


Quotes Edit

  • "Come to Olava for a reading, did you? Sorry, pup, but I'm not quite in the mood."
  • "Oh, I tell the future all right, when I feel up to the task, that is. But I'm afraid my energies haven't quite peaked yet today."
  • "Maybe some other time I'll reveal your destiny, hmm? Tea leaves, palm reading, crystal scrying... Oooh! Maybe trepanning? Ha ha ha ha ha!"


  • Because of the miscellaneous objective "Locate the Assassin of Old", she is flagged as essential and cannot be killed until that quest has been completed.
  • Occasionally, when attempting to speak to her after she gives the reading, she will exclaim, "By Sithis!" indicating that she not only knew Gabriella, but had ties to the Dark Brotherhood sometime in her life.


This section contains bugs related to Olava the Feeble. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  ,  PS3  ,  PC  .
  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.
  • If the lock is picked to get into Olava the Feeble's house and she catches the villain inside, she won't talk to them again, making it impossible to start the quest Locate the Assassin of Old. However, she can be carefully attacked inside her house and then led outside. Ending the fight and calming her will eventually get her to talk.
  • Waiting outside of her house between the hours of 6:00-9:00 PM can make her appear outside of her house for a short time, allowing the Dragonborn to speak with her and receive the reading.
