The Siren's Deception is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Maelona wants the Hero to help her husband Gogan by defeating a gang of women who lure men outside of town to rob them. She promises a 100 gold to get back a ring Gogan lost. Travel to The Flowing Bowl for more information.

OverviewEdit

Started in Anvil through a rumor, undercover agents of the Anvil Watch are working to track down an all-female band of thieves that seduce married men, lure them out of town, and rob them. Victims are too emasculated to report the crimes.

A female Hero will be approached by the thieves for potential membership. Male heroes are approached in the same tavern, as victims.

WalkthroughEdit

Signy Faustina Luring

Signy and Faustina

After talking to Maelona, head to the Flowing Bowl. Two women will approach the Hero: Signy Home-Wrecker and Faustina Cartia. They come on strong, with the body language of strumpets.

If the Hero is a male, they will insinuate that they want him to satisfy their desires by coming to their farmhouse; a few minutes' walk southeast of Anvil. If they're a female, they will invite her to join their gang. Either way, they will ask the hero to come to the farm around 11pm. Head over to the farm, and when they enter the following will happen:

Male: Once inside the hero can decide to remove his clothes, as invited, or not. Whether the hero removes his clothes or not, the end result is Faustina calling in her friends and a fight ensues.

Female: The story about the ring was a ruse and the moment they mention it, they'll find out they were set up by the man and woman who hired the Hero.

The Siren's Deception End

The end

In either case, Faustina will call out and all both ladies, with Tsarrina will attack. One of the thieves carries the unique elven dagger, Witsplinter that drains the intelligence. All are unarmored and don't appear to be leveled. Kill them and come to understand the truth about the quest-givers.

Maelona will approach the Hero and let them in on the undercover work and will also ask not to reveal anything if asked. She will also hand over the reward: Level-dependent amount of gold, Fame +1 (If they kill one of the gang members before they attack at Gweden Farm, Infamy +1).

JournalEdit

Journal Entry
  • Update: After hearing about the gang:

I've heard an all female gang of thieves is preying on the men folk of Anvil. While I didn't get all the details, I was pointed in the direction of Gogan and Maelona, two local Anvil residents. Somehow, Gogan is "intimately" involved whatever that means.

  • Update: After speaking to Maelona about the quest:

I've spoken to Maelona, a Reguard commoner who lives in Anvil. It seems that a gang of female thieves has taken up residence somewhere nearby. They're luring men out to their farmhouse by seducing them, and then in actuality, robbing them of all their goods when they arrive. The men are so embarrassed about this that they won't report it to the authorities. Maelona's husband is one of the "victims".

  • Update: While speaking to Maelona again about the quest:

Upon further questioning, I've discovered that Maelona's husband, Gogan, was carrying a family heirloom when the all-female gang robbed him. She's desperate to get the ring back, and is offering 100 gold for its return.

  • Update: After speaking to Maelona again about the quest:

Maelona told me that the men are usually approached at the local watering hole, The Flowing Bowl. That's where I should make contact with the gang. I should speak to Gogan, as he may be able to add some more useful information.

  • Update: After speaking to Gogan:

After speaking to Gogan, I've learned that there are at least two gang members, an Imperial and a Nord. They lure men to a remote location, trick them into removing their clothes and equipment, and then ambush them while they are defenseless. I think at this point I have enough information to pay a visit to The Flowing Bowl.

Female Hero:

  • Update: After being approached by Faustina Cartia:

Faustina Cartia approached me after I arrived at The Flowing Bowl. She said that I had what it took to join their gang, and if I was interested, to meet her in the farmhouse at a small settlement outside of Anvil called Gweden around 11 tonight. This was the break I was looking for, so I'll follow my map to that location.

Male Hero:

  • Update: After being approached by Signy Home-Wrecker:

Signy Home-Wrecker has met me at The Flowing Bowl, accompanied by Faustina Cartia. She enticed me to meet them at their farmhouse around 11 this evening, "for a night of fun I won't soon forget". I have decided to take them up on their temping offer, as this will point me in the direction of their hideout. The farmhouse seems to be just outside of Anvil in the settlement named Gweden.

  • Update: After arriving at Gweden Farm before 11pm:

I've arrived at Gweden. I'll need to wait until around 11 in the evening to go inside and find out what Faustina and Signy have in store for me.

  • Update: After arriving at Gweden Farm at 11pm:

I've arrived at Gweden. I should enter the main farmhouse and find out what Faustina and Signy have in store for me.

Male Hero who removes their clothes:

  • Update: After entering the Gweden Farm:

After entering the farmhouse, I encountered Faustina who enticed me to remove my weapons, armor and clothing and place them aside. Once I did so, she yelled out and the rest of the gang entered the room fully armed and ready for battle. I had no choice but to kill them.

Male Hero who keeps their clothes:

  • Update: After entering the Gweden Farm:

After entering the farmhouse, I encountered Faustina who tried to entice me to remove my weapons, armor and clothing and place them aside. Knowing this was a ruse, I refused. She yelled out and the rest of the gang entered the room fully armed and ready for battle. I had no choice but to kill them.

Female Hero:

  • Update: After entering the Gweden Farm:

After entering the farmhouse, I encountered Faustina who tried to convince me to join in on their scheme. When I told her no, she yelled out and the rest of the gang entered the room fully armed and ready for battle. I had no choice but to kill them.

  • Update: If Faustina is captured:

Maelona and Gogan entered the farmhouse in Anvil City Guard armor. It turns out that they have been undercover as a married couple for some time trying to put a stop to the gang. She says I was spotted heading to Gweden so she went back for reinforcements and headed here. She has taken Faustina into custody and paid me the gold she promised.

  • Quest complete
  • Update: If Faustina is killed:

Maelona and Gogan entered the farmhouse in Anvil City Guard armor. It turns out that they have been undercover as a married couple for some time trying to put a stop to the gang. She says I was spotted heading to Gweden so she went back for reinforcements and headed here. She said she would take care of the bodies, and paid me my gold as promised.

  • Quest complete
  • Update: If a gang member is slain prematurely:

I fear I've slain one of the gang members prematurely. Although this puts a stop to the crimes, a better way may have been available had I followed through with the undercover operation.

  • Quest complete

BugsEdit

  • It is possible that the female gang does not follow their schedules.
  • It is possible for Faustina's accomplices to attack, but not Faustina herself. This means killing her counts as Murder and will trigger Lucien Lachane's nighttime visit, if it is the Hero's first murder.

    • On a side note, the page also contradicts itself, saying that the male character has no option but to refuse the offer to remove his clothes.
    • i did not have those options either, you may need a high speechcraft skill to do them, or they were simply options that were planed to be in the game.
  • How do I get out Gweden farm when the gang dosent come?

    • After arriving in Gweden Farm at 11 pm the door was open and no one was inside i tried to wait but no one came. Is there a way out?
    • Ah, I got caught in this one a while back. I got around it by loading a previous save. Then try going to the bar where you met the gang. ...
