"If it's not one thing, it's another. The Count is very particular about his food and drink. Everything must be just so."
―Shum gro-Yarug[src]

Shum gro-Yarug quote

Shum gro-Yarug is an Orsimer commoner, and is the butler at Castle Skingrad. According to dialogue, Shum enjoys his job and its challenges. Any property of the Hero in Skingrad must be purchased from him.


  • "Sorry. You want me? I'm Shum gro-Yarug, the Count's butler."
  • "I salute you for your daring, Hero of Kvatch! You've proven yourself once again here at Skingrad."


Buying a house in SkingradEdit

Skingrad's Count Janus Hassildor, a Vampire, can't help the Hero. Instead speak to his butler Shum gro-Yarug, who is not easily impressed. They must raise his disposition to 70, as well as having a fame of 15 and 25,000 GoldIcon to seal the deal. The current inhabitant (Vandorallen Trebatius) will move out when they get the key.

Lost HistoriesEdit

S'Krivva wants the Hero to find out what happened to a missing thief by the name of Theranis. He was sent to Skingrad to purloin a rare book, Lost Histories of Tamriel, from the wizard in the castle there. She wants the Hero to bring the book back; apparently the Gray Fox is very interested in it.
