Dumania Jirich
Dumania is killed at the start of the Knights of the Nine quests

Dumania Jirich is an Imperial priestess and the Primate of the Chapel of Dibella in Anvil. Dumania is killed as soon as the Knights of the Nine official download is installed. This means that in the GotY edition, she is always dead. Her body will be found sprawled on the altar in the chapel.

Dumania sleeps in the Chapel Hall between midnight and 6am. On sunny days, she wakes up and heads outside for a long walk in the covered cloister opposite the chapel until midday. She will then travel to the nearby graveyard and use a rake to tend it until 6pm. At 8pm she heads into the Chapel Hall for a two hour dinner. Outside these times, or when it's raining, Dumania can be found anywhere inside the chapel: walking among the pews and altars in the main area, wandering the rooms in the Hall, or exploring the Undercroft.

Dumania wears an upper-class outfit consisting of a red velvet blouse, red velvet garment, and a pair of gold trimmed shoes. She carries with her the key to the chapel, a rake, and a small amount of gold. She knows a leveled set of priest spells as well as an extra Restoration spell.


She introduces herself by saying:

"Dumania Jirich, Primate of Anvil. I speak with the voice of Dibella, and greet you with love."

When asked about Anvil she will reply:

"They say that I was selected as Dibella's Primate in large part because of my loving nature and my striking looks."

Unused DialogueEdit

Originally, you were meant to be able to give a follow-up response to Dumania's Anvil topic. Your reponses can still be found in the files:

You are indeed still beautiful. and You're old, and you look old.

Dumania's responses to these remarks are no longer in the files, however. According to developer notes inside the script NQDAnvilNPCScript, this "feature [was] deleted when voice files were reduced".

    In different localizations of Oblivion, Dumania has unused greetings, based on whether you had previously chosen to compliment or insult her in the above unused dialogue.

If you had complimented her, she'd greet you warmly, saying:

"Dibella blesses you. How nice to see you again."

If however, you had been rude to Dumania, she'd shout:

"Dibella curse you and your fate!"


  • She is one of the few NPCs in the game to be marked for a Scripted Death but not to be flagged as essential. Thus it is possible for her to effectively "die twice".
