Donnel is an elderly witchblade who lives and works at The Treasury House in Markarth. He and Nana Ildene clean the house. They both show their true selves during the related quest.

Donnel can always be found sweeping the floor at the foot of the northeastern set of stairs. He never sleeps or eats, and will only leave his spot and reveal his true intentions after you have questioned Thonar.

He wears a set of farm clothes and a pair of boots, and is equipped with a steel dagger. He carries a key to the Treasury House and a selection of lower-class loot and gold. To aid him in combat, Donnel knows the spells Oakflesh, Raise Zombie, and Flames.

The Forsworn ConspiracyEdit

After questioning Thonar he will yell out:

"Traitors. Traitors all of you!"

He, along with Nana, will then proceed to attack you and anyone else in the Treasury House.


When spoken to he will only say:

"I work for the Silver-Bloods. Help clean."
"Just here to work."


  • Donnel's death can be avoided by pickpocketing and reading Thonar's or Nepos's journal instead of questioning them, then going directly to Eltrys.
    • Alternatively, it can be avoided by going directly to Eltrys after questioning Nepos the Nose.
