Ahkari is a Khajiit pawnbroker that leads one of three Khajiit trade caravans owned by Ri'saad. Her caravan stops at Riften and Dawnstar, and includes Zaynabi, Dro'marash, and Kharjo.

Ahkari wears a set of fine clothes and a pair of fine boots. She is equipped with a steel war axe, and carries a selection of upper-class items and gold.


When spoken to:

"So many refuse to talk to us. They call us thieves and smugglers. I am glad to see that you are not such a one."
Have you had trouble with the locals?
"Mostly it is the Nords. They do not like outsiders in their land, and so we are forbidden to enter the cities. When they look upon us, they see only pickpockets and skooma dealers. It is most unfair, but we do our best to ignore them."
How long have you been in Skyrim?
"Not long, in truth. I came to Skyrim after I found myself unwelcome in both Elsweyr and Cyrodiil. I seem to have an unfortunate talent for getting myself involved in misunderstandings with the law. Ri'saad was able to look past that, and it was he who helped to set me up with a trade caravan. Now I work for him."

Standard MerchandiseEdit

This is the merchandise found in Ahkari's merchant chest. These items are supposed to only be available if purchased from the merchant, however there is a bug with the chest. They are restocked every two days.

  • Although the Prima Official Game Guide lists Ahkari as a Journeyman Pickpocket trainer, she does not actually provide any training.
  • According to a smuggler's note in an unmarked location around the back of Whiterun, Ahkari may be involved in illegal skooma trade. This note is odd for two reasons, however: Ahkari does not travel to Whiterun on her trade route, nor does she have any obvious relation to the 'seer' mentioned by the note.


  • Ahkari's merchant chest is hidden in Dawnstar but it can be accessed if you know where to look. It is located on the east side of Dawnstar between some rocks just a few paces directly south of Irgnir's House, just to the left of Iron Breaker Mine. The chest is buried under the snow so it's not visible unless you move your cross-hairs over it. You can take loot from the hidden chest without incurring a bounty, even though what you're actually looting is her current inventory. If you sell her an item, you can head back over to the chest and find it within; if you buy items from her, the gold is also added to the chest.
  • Sometimes if the game doesn't load properly in Dawnstar and/or Riften, she and her crew would not raise camp. So, they will stand when they stay. ?
  • Sometimes if the game doesn't load perfectly in Dawnstar and/or Riften, she and her crew will stay for more than supposed three days. ?
  • Sometimes the caravan can get stuck just off the road between Riften and Windhelm near the Wild Animal Den. If you make Kharjo a follower it sometimes fixes this. If you cannot find Ahkari, on pc you can move her to your location by using the console and typing: prid 7434a, hit Enter, then type moveto player. Using this command outside her normal route may confuse her AI, so best to use this near her campsite outside Dawnstar or Riften. ?
  • The caravan accompanying Ahkari might show up at either Riften or Dawnstar without her. The other Khajiit stand in place but she is nowhere to be found. Fast travelling somewhere and then back may fix this, as well as waiting at the location they currently are. ?
