Biene Amelion

Biene Amelion is a Breton blademaster living in Water's Edge. She first requests the help of the Fighters Guild during Amelion's Debt to resolve a personal financial situation of her father. Later Biene will be the unfortunate victim of a misguided mercenary quest.

Biene lives a quiet life before her untimely death. At midday she has a two hour meal, and has another at 6pm. The rest of the time she relaxes inside her farmhouse, never sleeping. This routine ends during the Infiltration quest, when she is replaced by a goblin and killed by the Blackwood Company. Her body is then moved to a spot in the center of Water's Edge.

She wears lower class clothing which consists of a coarse linen shirt, coarse linens and a pair of oiled linen shoes. She also carries an iron dagger along with a small amount of gold.

Amelion's DebtEdit

Burz gro-Khash at the Cheydinhal Fighters Guild will task you with helping Biene:

"It's from Biene Amelion at the Water's Edge settlement. She needs something retrieved from her ancestral tomb. Try not to muck it up."
Biene Amelion
"You'll find her at the Water's Edge settlement. It's marked on your map."

In Water's Edge, asking her neighbours about her will net you:

Biene Amelion
"Biene? She should be around here somewhere. Just look around a bit."

Once you locate her, she will greet you with:

"Hello! You must be from the Fighters Guild. I'm glad you're here. I need your help to repay a debt."
Biene Amelion
"I am Biene Amelion."
"I'm afraid so. My father had a bit of an issue with gambling. I'm afraid he built up a rather large debt. Now that he's gone, the debt is mine."
How much is the debt?
"A great deal, over 1,000 septims. My father was quite a gambler. Quite a bad gambler."
Where is your father?
"Gone. Dragged from our house in the night. To pay the debt, I'd like to sell the sword and armor of my grandfather, or I might be next!"
Sword and Armor
"They were buried with my grandfather in the family tomb. The sword and cuirass were enchanted, and should cover my debt. Please, get them for me."

At this point, you will face a choice of either retrieving the heirlooms or covering the debt out of your own pocket to the tune of 1,000 septims:

Where are the sword and armor?
"Not far, in my family's ancestral tomb. Here, I can mark it on your map. Please, return them to me, so I can pay off my father's debts."
Take this money for your debt.
"Are you certain? I can't thank you enough. Please, though. If you decide to retrieve the sword and armor, keep them. At least until I can repay you."

If you decide to retrieve the heirlooms, she will subsequently greet you with:

"Hello again! Have you had any luck finding the sword and armor?"

Once they are in your possession you can tell her the good news and have another chance to decide how to proceed:

Sword and Armor
"You've found them? Fantastic! I can't tell you what this means to me."
Here are the sword and armor.
"Thank you. Thank you so much. Hopefully, I'll be able to sell these for enough to pay my debt. You're a lifesaver."
Take this money for your debt.
"Why... thank you! This will be enough to pay off my debtors. Please, keep the sword and armor until I can pay you back. Thank you again."

After this she will greet you with: "What can I do for you, my friend?" When ending a conversation she will gush: "I'll never forget this."


After you return to Water's Edge following your Hist-induced "goblin" massacre you will arrive at a scene of devastation. Biene's corpse and that of her fellow villagers is spread out near the stables. Grieving over her is her now-returned father, Marcel Amelion:

"My poor Biene. Poor, sweet Biene. What monsters would do this? How can this have happened?"
What happened here?
"I wish I knew. They're all dead. All of them. Even my poor, sweet Biene. You... you're the one who helped her, aren't you? You helped her pay my debt. I heard about you. She never hurt anyone! Who could have done this? What monster would do this? It wasn't the goblins. It had to have been bandits. But, why? We have nothing! Please go. I must bury our dead."


After completing Amelion's Debt, citizens of various towns and your fellow guildmates will share different rumors, based on your choices:

"Sure, the Fighters Guild raided a family tomb, but they did it for a family member. What's wrong with that?"
"Biene Amelion sold her family sword and armor to pay her debts. And you think you have it bad?"
"I hear our gold soldier paid her debt, but the hard hand also kept her family sword and armor."


  • Entering her house is considered trespassing during Amelion's Debt.
  • Should you choose to accept her quest, Biene will say "Here, I can mark it on your map." when talking about her ancestral tomb. It seems that when the line was edited by the developers, a mistake was made, resulting in the word "can" rapidly repeating twice.
  • Biene was supposed to venture outside between 2pm and 6pm, but she only has a "find" package with no target item, and the location center is right on the junction between the main road and the small village road. Since there's no target item, she stays inside the house.
  • You will hear the rumor "Sure, the Fighters Guild raided a family tomb, but they did it for a family member. What's wrong with that?" even if you decided to pay the debt off themselves.
