The Madwoman is an elderly priestess found wandering around in the wilderness. She carries a pair of tongs and an iron dagger. Due to her lack of gold, she wears a roughspun tunic and footwraps during her maddened wanderings. She also knows the Restoration spell Fast Healing.

Starting The Mind of Madness but not finishing it will make it so that she can be encountered in the wild.

Quest-Related DialogueEdit

The Mind of MadnessEdit

During an encounter with her, she will spout several lines relating to the quest:

"Don't go to the Blue Palace. The master is on vacation. Don't listen to Dervenin. Don't do it."
"The master has gone, but Dervenin will find him. Dervenin should not have gone."
"Vacation is where the head is. That is what Dervenin told us about our master. He's cozy in his Solitude."

If you possess the Wabbajack she will request that you use it on her:

"You have it! The blessed Wabbajack! You must use it on me. You must."

If you have completed the quest The Mind of Madness but don't have it with you, she will instead say:

"You're the one who returned blessed Sheogorath. I would be honored to be Wabbajacked by you, your grace."

If you refuse her or ignore her, she will return to wandering around and mutter:

"Wabbajack, Wabbajack, Wabbajack, Wabbajack."

Although you still get a bounty for using the Wabbajack on her, just like any other use of the Wabbajack on a non-hostile NPC, it is removed immediately afterward.


  • Her lines are accompanied by script notes stating that they are the "mutterings of a mad old woman".
