The dead assassin

The Dark Brotherhood Assassin is a long-dead Nord bandit found behind a sliding wall in a hidden alcove revealed by pulling a handle behind the throne, in the throne room of Hag's End. Olava the Feeble will have a vision of his final resting place if you earn a bonus during the Dark Brotherhood quest Breaching Security. He is clad in a complete set of unique Ancient Shrouded Armor.


  • Despite being supposedly long-dead, the Assassin's remains show no signs of decay.
  • It is possible to obtain the Ancient Shrouded Armor without Olava's token if you've destroyed the Dark Brotherhood. Take Serana with you into Hag's End and during the fight with the first set of witches, she will resurrect the body of the Dark Brotherhood Assassin, who will join you. When he turns to ash, loot the ash pile for the entire set of Ancient Shrouded Armor. (Tested on PS3.)[verification needed — Can anyone confirm this on PS3, and preferably other platforms too?]
  • It is also possible to obtain the Ancient Shrouded Armor by using The Ritual Stone power. Activating the power near the body will raise it; exiting the cell within two minutes (for example, exiting to the Deepwood Redoubt balcony) will cause the body to follow you outside. Once the power wears off, you can loot the body for the armor.
