The Missing Missionary is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon. Mirisa, an Imperial Cult preacher, went to the wilds of Solstheim to spread the Imperial Doctrine to the local inhabitants. But since then there was no sign of her. Jeleen loves Mirisa and wants someone to find his loved one. Mirisa can die during the rescue attempt, resulting in Jeleen committing suicide.


  1. Speak to Jeleen.
  2. Head to Thirsk Mead Hall and talk to a Brynjolfr or Skjoldr Wolf-Runner about Mirisa.
  3. On a second floor of Thirsk unlock the only locked door and talk to Mirisa.
  4. Ask her to travel together.
  5. Escort her back to the Imperial Cult Shrine.
    • If she dies after being rescued and before reaching the shrine, continue anyway.
  6. Speak to Jeleen and collect your reward.


Go to the Imperial Cult shrine and speak to Jeleen. Ask him about Mirisa never returned and accept his quest.


Mirisa will only be at Thirsk if the quest The Mead Hall Massacre has not begun.

Asking Reinhardt Red-Spear just outside Fort Frostmoth and he will say to check Thirsk. After going to Thirsk speak to Brynjolfr or Skjoldr Wolf-Runner about Mirisa. They will say Erich the Unworthy has done something to her but don't know where she is.

Mirisa will be on the second floor of Thirsk behind a level 50 locked door which Erich the Unworthy has the key too. The door can be opened with a high security skill and a lockpick, but can prove to be difficult. An easier alternative is too pickpocket Erich for the key. If it cannot be found in his pocket, pickpocket him anyways and wait for him to attack you.

He will attempt to kill you, but none of his fellow Thirsk patrons will assist him due to their hatred of him. After killing him loot his corpse for the key and open the door.

Upon speaking to Mirisa she will tell you what Erich did to her. Ask her to travel together and head back to Fort Frostmoth.


If the quest The Mead Hall Massacre has begun, Mirisa will be at Solvjord. Upon entering the cave go to the very last point and speak to her. Ask her to travel together and head back to Fort Frostmoth.

Returning to Fort FrostmothEdit


Upon returning to Fort Frostmoth with Mirisa alive, go to the Imperial Cult shrine. She will return to her regular job and stop following you. Go to Jeleen, who will be filled with joy and collect the reward. Mirisa will then provide services as a merchant


After rescuing Mirisa it is possible she will die on the way there. Go to Jeleen and tell him about the news. He will be filled with sorrow but still give the reward. Mirisa will not have services as a merchant as she will be deceased and Jeleen will later commit suicide.


  • 300 gold
  • Mirisa as a merchant (If returned alive)


The Missing Missionary
I spoke with Jeleen at the Imperial Cult shrine in Fort Frostmoth, and he is deeply troubled. A missionary named Mirisa set out from the shrine over a month ago, and hasn't returned. If I can find Mirisa and return her safely to Jeleen, he will grant a generous reward. Jeleen suggests I look in the Lake Fjalding region, to the north of Fort Frostmoth.

It seems Mirisa the missionary was preaching more about the evils of alcohol consumption than the benefits of the Imperial Cult. She was last seen heading for a mead hall called Thirsk, in the hopes of swaying the resident Nords from their love of drink.
The book "Sovngarde, a Reexamination" contains new theories on the god Shor's mythical Hall of Valor. Of particular interest is the suggestion that the entrance to Sovngarde doesn't actually exist in the physical world. All a Nord has to do to enter Sovngarde is die in honorable combat. I should get this book back to Ulfgar the Unending. He'll be very interested in what it has to say.
The missionary Mirisa is being held captive by a Nord barbarian named Erich the Unworthy, in his room in the Thirsk mead hall.
I have killed the Nord barbarian Erich the Unworthy. Thankfully it was an even fight, since none of Eric's fellow clan members came to his assistance.
I have located Mirisa the missionary, locked in the quarters of Erich the Unworthy at the Thirsk mead hall. She's been imprisoned for over three weeks.
I have agreed to escort Mirisa back to the Imperial Cult Shrine at Fort Frostmoth.
I have escorted the missionary Mirisa safely to the Imperial Cult shrine in Fort Frostmoth.
Jeleen was overjoyed at my rescue of Mirisa, and rewarded me with 300 gold pieces.
  • Quest complete
Mirisa the missionary is dead. I should report this sad news to Jeleen at the Imperial Cult Shrine at Fort Frostmoth.

    • Hi! To get to Solvjord you need to travel North-East of Raven Rock.  It is just East of Brodir Grove, not far at all :) Grace
