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 quest-line.


There is a variant in which the Dragonborn must travel to Hag's End and rescue Abelone of Dawnstar. Travel to Hag's End, and in the room where the third encounter with the Hagraven occurs, (the room with the oil pit after the three consecutive iron gates that are trapped with spears) Abelone is in an (expert level) locked cell.
