Susanna after her encounter with the Butcher

Susanna the Wicked is a Nord rogue who is usually found in Candlehearth Hall, in Windhelm. She is the fourth of the Butcher's victims during the quest Blood on the Ice.

Due to a bug, Susanna follows the same routine in Candlehearth Hall at all hours of the day.

She wears a set of tavern clothes and a pair of boots, and she carries an iron dagger, along with some common items and gold.

"You didn't hear it from me, but if you want a real drink, try the Cornerclub in the Gray Quarter."
"Did you know that candle on the mantle hasn't gone out in over a hundred years?"
"How can Elda hate the dark elves when she knows so little about them?"

When exiting conversations:

"See you around, handsome." (If you are male)
"See you around, my beauty." (If you are female)


  • Elda will mention Susanna in one of her greetings, warning you to "Mind you don't get fresh with Susanna. She plays the flirt, but it's just to get good tips."
  • Susanna is also mentioned in a book written by her co-worker Nils.
  • According to game data, her boyfriend is Kjeld the Younger. No-one in the game ever makes mention of this, however.
  • Susanna's body in the beginning of Blood On The Ice, in the graveyard, is refID 000D2C9E, baseID 000D2C9D. It is disabled when you speak with Jorleif about the murders. Susanna's body on a table in the Hall of The Dead is a different NPC with refID 000D5811, baseID 000D5810.
  • If you wish to keep her body in the Hall of the Dead from despawning after the completion of Blood on the Ice (e.g. to keep as a Dead Thrall), you must choose to confront Wuunferth directly instead of turning him in. Additionally, when patrolling for the Butcher you must kill him before he makes it back to Hjerim.


  • The guard present during Blood on the Ice says that Susanna "Served me a drink just a few nights ago" though she doesn't actually sell drinks to anyone else at the inn. She was actually set up to do so, but was never added to the appropriate faction.
  • Susanna was supposed to work, sleep, and wander, but due to a bug in her AI packages, she will be at work for the entire game until killed.
    •   The Unofficial Skyrim Patch, version 2.0.0, addresses this issue. Her work schedule is fixed, so she will now sleep from 3am to 11am, then head outside to wander the city and get some fresh air. At 4pm, she returns to the Hall for work until midnight, when she can be found around Windhelm again. (details)
