"Don't give up now... there's plenty of loot out there just ripe for the taking."

Vex is an Imperial thief and a member of the Thieves Guild. A Master Lockpick trainer, Vex can usually be found in The Ragged Flagon.

Personality and relationshipsEdit

Vex is one of the Thieves Guild's best infiltrators, with a fierce temper to match. She is affectionately known as "our little Vex" by Delvin and Brynjolf. She is quite sure of her abilities as she tells the Dragonborn not even to think of replacing her and to follow whatever she says. Despite her behaviour alienating her from her counterparts, Vex is utterly loyal to the Guild and will react violently to any threat or insult to it; when Mercer Frey's betrayal is discovered, Vex immediately draws her dagger and vows to kill him.


Loud and ClearEdit

The Dragonborn must break into Goldenglow Estate and raid the safe there, as well as light three bee hives on fire. Speaking to Vex will reveal that she had previously attempted to do the job with Delvin, but Aringoth, the estate's owner, had stationed eight mercenaries around the estate and Vex was wounded in the fight. She will then tell of a sewer entrance on the northwest part of the island, which will make breaking into the estate much easier.

Side questsEdit

When prompted, she gives four different side quests:

Other related questsEdit


  • Vex writes A Warning addressed to Delvin for peeping on her while she was taking a bath. The note ends with her threatening to cut off his "most valuable asset" if he does it again.
  • The Thieves Guild quest, "The Pursuit," reveals that she was romantically involved with a man named Vald.
  • When Mercer Frey's betrayal is discovered, Vex is by far the angriest of the group, saying lines such as,"If I see Frey, I'll pluck his eyes from his skull with my bare hands!"
  • Vex seems to be a romantic interest to several members of the guild, as dialogue from Delvin and Garthar imply that they are attracted to her.
  • Vex carries a large sum of gold (several thousand), but the pickpocketing percentage is 0.
  • Vex is voiced by Kari Wahlgren.
  • When Haran in The Frozen Hearth in Winterhold is questioned about Isabelle Rolaine, she will direct the Dragonborn to Vex and incorrectly refer to her as male.
  • Vex is heard saying "s'wit," a word that is typically used by Dunmer.
  • The Official Game Guide lists her as Guild Third, beneath Mercer and Brynjolf and on equal footing with Delvin, and as one of the Guild's best combatants, beaten only by Mercer Frey. It also states that Vex is not her real name.


This section contains bugs related to Vex. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  ,  NX  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • Vex may accuse the Dragonborn of drawing blood, even if no one was interacted with in any way. This may occur during a heist quest.
  •  PC   360   PS3   It is possible to remain totally undetected on heist or burglary type quests and still fail for being caught, even when no one saw any stage of the crime.
  • Vex may spawn inside the box she leans against in the Ragged Flagon. This can be fixed by exiting and re-entering.
  • It is possible that when Vex is asked for a job, she may not give it. If she is asked for multiple jobs through this glitch, when the Ragged Flagon is left, all the missions asked for will appear. While it may seem good to have many missions at once, only one may be able to be turned in, and all of the missions may not be able to be completed.
  • Accepting, quitting or basically performing any kind of inquiry on Vex's sweep job may cause the screen to be glitched. This disables looking (a.k.a turning) until the game is quit and then restarted.
