"As we commend your souls to Aetherius, blessings of the Eight Divines upon you, for you are the salt and earth of Nirn, our beloved...."
―Priestess of Arkay[src]

Priestess of Arkay

Priestess of Arkay is an unnamed female Breton found in Helgen during the opening quest, "Unbound."

BackgroundEdit

This priestess of Arkay was in Helgen when Ulfric Stormcloak was to be executed for the murder of High King Torygg and starting the Skyrim Civil War.

She gave the prisoners their last rites before being rudely interrupted by a Stormcloak soldier. She responded with a curt "As you wish" before going to stand by a pillar to watch the executions. However, before the Dragonborn could be executed by the Imperial Headsman, a dragon flew over the mountains and landed on the tower.

In the resulting chaos, Helgen was destroyed and many Imperial soldiers and townspeople were killed. The fate of this priestess, however, remains unknown.
