S'drassa in the Leyawiin Guild Hall

S'drassa, a Khajiit alchemist, is an Evoker of the Mages Guild who offers basic Alchemy training at the Leyawiin Guild Hall. He is also an avid collector of crystals and will offer you a job to bring him some very rare ones.

His collection is divided in the two red display cases he owns. One contains three crystals and cannot be opened by any means. This is because the entire display is meant to be only decoration: as all three crystals are in fact static objects and cannot be picked up. The second one has a very hard lock and will be empty until you bring him Garridan's Tears. They are both found in the east wing of the ground floor.

He lives the laid-back life of a collector: he sleeps in the east wing of the ground floor from 10pm until 6am and will then wander around the ground floor for the next two hours. At 8am he will select a book and sit down at his desk to read it until midday. He will then get up and skip lunch, instead wandering around the ground floor until 6pm. After eating a two-hour dinner with his fellow guild mates in the dining room, he will spend the last two hours of his day either wandering around sleepily or reading in the second floor library. He will offer his services between 6am and 6pm.

He wears the rare tan robe with the matching tan hood as well as a pair of doeskin shoes. His only other possession is a leveled amount of gold. He doesn't wield any weapons, relying instead on a set of leveled set of alchemist spells (always strongest for S'drassa skill level).


If asked about the Guild, S'drassa's answer will depend on whether you're already a member or not:

Mages Guild
"The Mages Guild is the single best resource for Alchemists in all of Cyrodiil. If Alchemy interests you, talk to Dagail about joining."
"All of the local guild halls sell some amount of Alchemic ingredients, but for the best stuff, you'll need to do some exploring on your own."

If asked about the city, he will tell you a bit about his specialty and give you a few recommendations:

"I am the best alchemist in Leyawiin. But if you need Advanced Training, you'll need Brotch Calus in Bruma or Ardaline in Bravil."

Quest-related EventsEdit

Tears of the SaviorEdit

The very first time you meet him, he will both introduce himself and offer you an assignment:

"S'Drassa of the Mages Guild. Evoker and Alchemist. And also, in his scant free time, a Trainer in Alchemy. But... perhaps you are an adventurer? Could you assist me in acquiring something for my crystal collection?"
What did you have in mind?
"Straight to the point, eh? Good, I like that. I'm searching for some specific crystals known as Garridan's Tears. If you can locate these objects for me, I'd pay handsomely for each one."
Perhaps later.
"Very well, If you change your mind, I'll be here."

Greeting again now he will say:

"Have you reconsidered?"
Certainly. Please proceed.
"Wonderful! I had a good feeling about you from the moment that I saw you. I want you to bring me as many of Garridan's Tears as you can find. If you do, I will pay you a fair bounty in gold for each one. I confess I have a weakness for crystals of a magical nature, and I must add these to my collection. This is a personal errand, you must understand. Just between you and I. The Mages Guild has nothing to do with it."

After this, he will greet you with:

"I'd love to have the Tears added to my collection."
Garridan's Tears
"The Tears are not just a namesake. They're literally the frozen tears of a knight named Garridan Stalrous who lived many years ago. I'm not certain what happened to the knight, or why the tears were frozen, but I do know someone you could ask. Seek out Julienne Fanis at the Arcane University in the Imperial City. She oversees the Alchemy Headquarters there. If anyone can help you get more information on about these crystals, she can."

Speaking to him again now will net you:

"I suggest you make your way to the Imperial City. Can't make money by standing here."
Garridan's Tears
"The Tears are small crystals, bluish in appearance. Quite beautiful I'd imagine."

After speaking with Julienne, you can return to S'drassa, who will be delighted:

"I just knew that Julienne would have more information."
Garridan's Tears
"Interesting. I didn't know that much history about the Tears. I suggest you go find that book Julienne mentioned. It sounds ideal."

Once you've taken possession of a copy of Knightfall, he says:

"I hope the book helps you find where Garridan may have fallen."
Garridan's Tears
"After you read the book, I'll help in any way that I can."

After reading the book, he will be curious:

"What did you learn from "Knightfall"?"
Garridan's Tears
"Well, if what you learned is accurate, then you must protect yourself. It sounds like the cold in the glade is so severe that it could harm you. Perhaps these potions will help."7

He will then give you five Philters of Frostward to help protect you from the cold of Frostfire Glade.

On the topic of the Refined Frost Salts he will instruct you:

Refined Frost Salts
"Yes. I've heard of mages who seal portals with an ingredient as a key. Makes the door impossible to lockpick. Refined frost salts sounds like something Julienne would specialize in. You may want to go back to the University and speak to her."

Once you've acquire the frost salts from Julienne, returning to S'drassa will have him helpfully ask:

"May I help with any last minute preparation?"
Garridan's Tears
"There isn't much else I can do to equip you for this journey. Only to wish you luck."

If you return after recovering at least one Tear, he'll comment:

"You look like you've seen some travel."

Once you have located and retrieved all five of the Tears, S'drassa will be overjoyed:

"You found five of the Tears? Fantastic! This turned out better than I expected. Perhaps a little bit of a bonus is in order."
Garridan's Tears
"They're the pride of my collection."

If Julienne dies during the quest, asking him about the Tears will have him bemoan:

Garridan's Tears
"Sorry, I can no longer help you with that."

Once the quest is complete, he will greet you with:

"S'Drassa of the Mages Guild, Evoker and Alchemist. And also, in his scant free time, a Trainer in Alchemy."

Leyawiin RecommendationEdit

Once you've joined the guild and ask him about seeking a recommendation, he will direct you to his boss:

"That's Dagail's responsibility. Speak with her."
"A nice lady, but strange. Talks to herself far more often than one should, in my opinion. Sometimes I wonder why she hasn't just retired, and gone someplace to rest."

After speaking with Agata she will ask you to speak with the guild mages to find out what they know about the Dagail's seer stone. S'drassa will be positive about her:

"She's been a great help to all of us in the guild. Without her, I think Dagail would be lost at times."
Seer's Stone
"I'm afraid I don't know anything about it. I heard it was missing, though. Kalthar was talking about it recently. He seemed very agitated about it. Almost... happy. Strange, isn't that?"

Seeking Your RootsEdit

After you harvest a Nirnroot plant, you will immediately be directed to one of Cyrodiil's alchemists. Asking S'drassa about the mysterious plant will net you different responses depending on whether you have a sample in your inventory or not:

"I can't help you if you don't show me what you're talking about."
"Amazing. I've never seen a root quite like that before. If you wish to find out a bit more about it, I know just the person you need to talk to. Seek out Sinderion, a resident alchemist of Skingrad. Strange plants are his specialty."

Once you've spoken to Sinderion, he will instead encourage you:

"Good luck with your field work for Sinderion."


Some NPCs may inform you that S'drassa is working on a cure for Skooma addiction:

"I understand that S'drassa is still trying to create a potion to cure skooma addiction."
"When S'drassa isn't teaching alchemy, he spends all of his time researching a cure for skooma addiction."

To which others will reply:

"I've heard he never leaves his laboratory. He's certainly dedicated to his craft."
"He's a very hard worker. Sometimes I wonder if he ever gets out."

You can find three bottles of Skooma in a chest in the Leyawiin mages guild hall - possibly samples that S'drassa is studying in order to achieve his goal.

Unused DialogueEdit

S'drassa has an additional greeting line which you will never hear, as it will always be overridden by others:

"Excuse me. Perhaps you're an adventurer? Could you assist me in acquiring something for my crystal collection?"


  • He wears the only tan hood in the base game. Another one can be found in Cann with Shivering Isles installed.


  • Due to an error in S'drassa's class, he allows you to invest in his shop, but doesn't have a shop. Alves Uvenim is the shop-owner; S'drassa should not have had this option.
