The Mind of a Madman

The Mind of a Madman is the mind of Pelagius the Mad. It is Pelagius' mind in physical form. It is accessible only through the Pelagius Wing of the Blue Palace in Solitude, and only when the quest The Mind of Madness has begun.

The first area you see after you have been transported contains a long dining table filled with food. On one side, Sheogorath sits on a throne, and on the other side, Pelagius the Mad sits in a chair.

The area to the right, known as Pelagius' Confidence, contains nothing except two ghostly figures fighting, Confidence and Anger. The area straight ahead, known as Pelagius' Night Terrors, contains a bed where Pelagius the Tormented is sleeping. The area to the left, known as Pelagius' Paranoia, contains an arena where two atronachs are fighting. On both sides of the arena are two stone chairs. The chairs on the opposite side are each occupied by a Bodyguard, while Pelagius the Suspicious stands between them.

  • As the area is a separate worldspace, it is possible to fast travel away after using the quest journal to access the map. However, if you do so, you will be unable to access the skill tree and magic inventory. While it is still possible to equip items through containers, you will lose all items, including quest items, that you were carrying when you entered. Thus, you should not fast travel from this area.
  • When you complete the Path of Dreams segment, a chest with a "Search" prompt will appear, though activating it will do nothing.
  • None of the items here are owned, thus making them free to take.


  • Dragons may appear and possibly kill you, as they cannot land, and you cannot attack them.
