Linwe is an Altmer thief and the leader of the Summerset Shadows in Skyrim. He resides in Uttering Hills Cave, from where he conducts the business of the Shadows around Windhelm. He uses Niranye in Windhelm as the fence for the group, but rarely sees her personally. He wears a special set of armor that has similar properties to the Thieves Guild set of armor. It is made up of Linwe's armor, boots, gloves, and hood.
His style of thievery differs from the Thieves Guild in that he prefers stealing from the recently deceased in the Halls of the Dead, but like the Guild he does not kill them himself. He is not averse to robbing the graves of the more long-term dead.
- Summerset Shadows: Remove a rival guild from the picture.
- It is possible to obtain unlimited copies of Linwe's unique armor set. This can be exploited by using The Ritual Stone Power or Dead Thrall, and Fast Traveling to a nearby location (prior copy must be obtained from his corpse beforehand).
