Yrsa is a Nord living in Skaal Village. She lives with her husband, Deor Woodcutter in their house. You may find her laboring at the Temple of Miraak with Oslaf during the quest The Temple of Miraak. She will be free afterwards and return to her village.

She wears a Skaal coat with matching boots and hat. She carries a one-handed weapon, her house key, and a selection of common items and gold.

Yrsa may greet you with:

"I fear what would have happened if you hadn't freed us."
"This [sic] Dark Elves of Raven Rock keep to their city, and we Skaal keep to our village."
"Fanari speaks her mind, perhaps more than she should."
"The Skaal and the land are one, joined by the All-Maker."


Yrsa may have a short conversation with Oslaf about her snowberry pies:

Oslaf: "When will you make another snowberry pie, Yrsa? It's been a long time."
Yrsa: "The snowberries are not yet sweet enough. I tasted one just this morning."
Oslaf: "Just make sure that when the berries ripen, you make more pies than you did last time."
Yrsa: "Yes, I remember that you ate one of them all by yourself. Maybe this time, you will leave some for the rest of us!"
Oslaf: "Not if I can help it!"

She may also talk with Deor about something under their bed:

Yrsa: "Husband, do you know why there's a pouch of spiced tea leaves under the bed?"
Deor: "What?! That was supposed to be a gift! I was hoping to surprise you."
Yrsa: "That is sweet of you, Deor, but you should find a better hiding place next time."
Deor: "If I'd known that I was married to a fox who digs under beds to look for treats, then perhaps I would have."


  • She has two additional lines: "Relief and gratitude [sic]" and "You saved us! But from what? Is it truly over?" However, they are set to be heard at the Wind Stone, which Yrsa never visits, so you will not normally hear these lines.
