The artifact Umbra is an enchanted sword obtained by slaying its wielder, as in Morrowind. This time, however, it is a one-handed weapon carried by Umbra, a female Wood Elf located in Vindasel. She and the sword are encountered during Clavicus Vile's Daedric quest.

Although this sword is associated with a Daedric quest, it is not considered a Daedric artifact for the quest Blood of the Daedra or for your character's statistics page. See the book Tamrielic Lore for background on this item.

For more information, see the lore article.
