Rescue Mission is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

It is a radiant quest that may be taken after completing the first quest in the main Companions questline. It can be repeatedly completed, if the Dragonborn 'asks the leaders of the Companions for work'.


As for a radiant quest, the person to rescue and the location from where are random. Below is a list of possible variations:

Possible objectivesEdit


Journal Entry

<radiant NPC> has been kidnapped and taken to <radiant location>. I need to get <radiant gender> back to <radiant city>.

  • Objective: Rescue <radiant NPC> from <radiant location>
  • Objective: Talk to <radiant NPC>
  • Objective: Escort <radiant NPC> back to <radiant city>
  • Objective: Take your leave of <radiant NPC>

I have rescued <radiant NPC> from <radiant location> and escorted <radiant gender> back to <radiant city>.

  • Objective: Return to <quest giver>

  • Unlike the other Radiant Quests from the Companions, once this quest is offered, it cannot be declined; the player must finish it in order to get other quests from the Companions.
