Relmyna Verenim is a female Dunmer that lives in Passwall, a hamlet in The Fringe, outside the gates to the Shivering Isles. She is the creator of the Gatekeeper who guards the gates and has their keys.
She can sometimes be found in one of the rooms in The Wastrel's Purse. It is suggested that she had a relationship with Sheogorath, who helped her create the Gatekeeper. She considers the Gatekeeper her child, visiting him every midnight. She talks to him and cries, (the Gatekeeper does not attack her). Her tears, which remain on the ground, are poisonous to the gatekeeper.
She seems to be a sadist and has a very high opinion of herself. She is overly critical of her assistant, Nanette Don, constantly belittling her absentmindedness. She shows very little emotion about her "Test subjects," and her home is littered with her failed experiments: dead bodies, usually mangled. In the beginning of the quest Rebuilding the Gatekeeper she is in Sanctum of Vivisection, torturing people with fire, darts, and trapdoors.
Relmyna orders the Hero to bring her four ingredients to rebuild the Gatekeeper from the Gardens of Flesh and Bone. Once they have been obtained, she performs the incantations to rebuild the new Gatekeeper.
