The Whispering Lady is a voice behind a door. Nelkir, the youngest son of Balgruuf the Greater, has been listening to her whispering. After talking to her, the Dragonborn discovers she is in fact a manifestation of the Daedric Prince Mephala.
The Whispering Lady's door is in the basement of Dragonsreach.
- If the door is unlocked through the use of console commands, the Whispering Lady can be seen as a floating dresser that acts as a placeholder for the audio.
- If the Dragonborn use a platter to sprint through the door, they can see the dresser even before the quest has started.
- If the Dragonborn completes the Stormcloaks side of the war, an Ebony Blade may be seen behind a dresser on a table along with a khajiit ring.
