  • There is no explanation ingame as to how Rayda died but I think that Narfi's assassination is an implication that murder was the cause.

    My personal theory is that someone living in or around Ivarstead raped and murdered Rayda and then when Narfi became a nuisance they performed the Black Sacrament and contracted the Dark Brotherhood to silence him.

    Any thoughts on who the culprit may be?

    • Rape? there is no evidence or thing that suggest rape.

      We already had that talk in other threads, all we know for sure is that Reyda is dead and that she ended in the water. Maybe she killed herself by falling. Some people find arrows in the water near her skeleton and some don't, so there is also a theory about her being shot by a hold guard or a hunter (most likely by accident).

      As for Narfi nobody in Ivarstead cares about his fate or talk about him, nobody except Wilhelm the innkeeper. He's the one who gives you the quest but he also asks you to bring Reyda's necklace back to him. Suspicious, isn't it? So he may have been the one who killed Reyda and put a contract on Narfi.

      Another theory, Narfi was killed as an act of mercy : Wilhelm wanted a proof that his sister was really dead and since there is nobody to keep an eye on Narfi's fragile mental state he contacted the DB to put him out of his misery. 

      Also, some players find human flesh/heart on Narfi when they kill him so they believe it's Reyda's. It seems impossible since she dissappeared a year ago and her body is nothing but bones now. As a result I doubt he's the killer. I suppose it's his own flesh or heart we loot.

      I think I covered it all!

    • I founded Two Iron Arrows that were floating on the river beside Reyda's body. Two Iron Arrows.

    • Yea... about those arrows... After I finised this quest, I was supposed to kill Narfi. So I used the 2 arrows that possibly killed Reyda to kill Narfi.

    • Why? Do you think Narfi killed her with a bow?

      Also, I did 6-7 playthrough and I don't always find arrows. Maybe it's a bug, I don't know.

    • There are several deer spawns right near the bridge where the skeleton is found, so it's entirely possible that the players who found arrows shot them there themselves.

      Arrows that kill an enemy are usually registered inside the body. Even dropped weapons are. It's reasonable to expect arrows that would have killed Reyda to follow the same style and not just float around nearby.

      The thing is, many people found these arrows. Some people (like me) find nothing at all on their playthroughs and something in the next. Also, it's always the same type and number of arrows.

      To be honest, the more I think about it the more it seems like a scene : she dissapeared a year ago, yet the body is a clean skeleton. It has things that convinently identifies Reyda as the dead one, such as a satchel of random alchemical ingredients and the necklace. Also, these arrows seems stray, since they are indeed not inside the body nor as a container neither in her flesh. Arrows = iron = rust if underwater for a long time, and we know it's just a normal type of arrow so these are more recent. Also, her body should be far away considering the tide.

      My current theory is that she faked her death to run from the responsability that is her mentally ill brother. Narfi or Wilhelm clearly stated that she was gone picking ingredidents, meaning she told one of them (so that her "body" could be found?). She's possibly the one behind the Dark Brotherhood contract, as a mercy killing.

      Pretty good theory. Sad story indeed, i wonder if she's somewhere in Winterhold or Riften, or if she fled somewhere even more far away...
