Thaena’s life isn’t what it was supposed to be. The beautiful city she should’ve grown up in doesn’t exist, her husband has turned into a bitter, cynical man, and the future for her son looks bleak. While Korir may stop short of assigning blame, Thaena has no problem pointing a finger at those responsible for her family’s plight: the mages of Winterhold.
Refusing to accept any responsibility for her situation, she’s placed all the blame squarely on the shoulders of the College and spends every day cursing its existence.
She tells Dragonborn that her family is the only family that still truly cares about Winterhold.
- "Without us looking out for Winterhold, it's doomed. Simply doomed." (If her husband is removed from the position of Jarl)
- "I'd rather see the Sea of Ghosts swallow Winterhold entirely than have it run by the Empire."
- Thaena is Korir's housecarl - as she is in the housecarl faction - but unlike most housecarls, she offers no dialogue to evidence this.
