Shahvee is an Argonian citizen living in the Argonian Assemblage outside Windhelm. She is the only female Argonian in the game that can be married but only if you bring back her amulet.

Her daily routine reflects that of the other Argonians on the dockside. She sleeps in the assemblage every night between 9pm and 7am and always starts the day with a two-hour breakfast. She then heads outside and spends twelve hours at the tanning rack before her dinner at 8pm.

She wears a simple set of farm clothes and carries the key to the Argonian Assemblage, an iron dagger and a selection of lower-class items and gold.

Despite the difficulties she faces in her everyday life, she maintains a smile.

"Skyrim isn't very friendly for Argonians, so we mostly just keep out of the way."
"Shahvee knows the dock doesn't look nice, but fresh air is good for the gills."
"Good honest work staves off the cold."

Her friendly behavior is also present when exiting conversation.

"I enjoyed our talk."
"Until our next meeting, honored friend."

You can ask her if she always maintains a pleasant demeanor.

Are you always so happy?
"Oh yes. After all, what's the point in being miserable all the time?
I know life on the docks isn't easy. Sometimes life puts you in difficult circumstances you didn't choose.
But being happy or unhappy is a choice you make, and I've chosen to make the best of things that I can."

Quest-Related EventsEdit

Dungeon DelvingEdit

She will admit that Argonians are treated roughly in Skyrim and that she recently lost the only item that gave her comfort.

"Windhelm has been hard on my people. But our fortunes will turn, and we have shelter and food."
Your people have bad luck?
"We have not faired [sic] well outside our native Black Marsh, but we're determined to make the best of things.
I began praying to Zenithar, the god of wealth, to bring us some fortune, but thieves made off with my sacred amulet almost as soon as I bought it."

You can politely decline the quest.

Sorry to hear that.
"We will endure. We always have."

Alternatively, you can accept the quest.

I could find your amulet for you.
"Shahvee would be in your debt, kind one."

When you return with her amulet, she will be overwhelmed with joy and provide a one-point bonus to your Light Armor and Lockpicking skills, with her thanks.

I have your amulet.
"Bless you, friend. You have renewed my hope.
Before I came into Zenithar's calling, I confess I was a thief. But I learned a few things in my time that might help you survive. Let me show you."
