Velsa, born as Velsa Arendis, is a former member of the Thieves Guild who retired shortly before the failed heist in Taneth. She resides in her villa in the Flooded District of Abah's Landing. Zeira suspects that Velsa has been ratting out their info to the Iron Wheel, though after this is disproved, she agrees to rejoin the guild.
Decades before 2E 582, Velsa was born to Arendis family of House Dres. Her family ran a Slavery plantation, and she loathed her family's business. Velsa met Narahni, a Khajiiti slave working in the family's kitchens. They later fell in love, and made a plan to free all the plantation's slaves.
Just as Velsa was making her escape with the slaves, her brother, whom Velsa considered the worst of her family, arrived at an unfortunate time. In order to ensure Velsa and the other slaves' escaped safely, Narahni went into the arms of Velsa's brother to distract him. Velsa saw this, and had mistaken Narahni for eloping with her brother. Before Narahni could get a chance to explain, Velsa left.
Velsa later went on to join the Thieves Guild of Abah's Landing. After Nicolas became the Guildmaster, he elevated Velsa to a position on the Thieves Council. Walks-Softly found her to be pragmatic. She later left the Thieves Guild between 2E 579 and 582, wanting nothing to do with the guild. She retired to her Villa, growing a number of plants in her garden and raising her pet Skeever, Sotha.
After finding Velsa in her garden, she will be having the following conversation with Silver-Claw:
Velsa: "Did you fall and land directly upon your skull? I... am... retired!"
Silver-Claw: "Velsa! Do not make me beg. It is unbecoming of our most profitable history."
Velsa: "And who is this, Silver-Claw? Who else befouls my garden?"
Silver-Claw: "In all truthfulness, I have no knowledge. A friend? But... you have no friends. Beyond my humble and mercantile self, of course!"
She will later assist you in infiltrating Silver-Claw's Warehouse, which has been taken over by new management. Afterwards, she will rejoin the Thieves Guild.

"Took your time, didn't you? But you're here."
I got your note. You wanted to talk to me?
"Is this what happiness feels like? Yes, I suppose it is."
You seem glad to see Narahni again.
You weren't an easy person to get along with, that's for sure.
You both have a lot of catching up to do.
"Narahni and I have much to discuss. Don't you have guild business, somewhere way from here?"
