The page states that you can buy and sell from her, but I cannot. I don't want to just remove the part that notes this, because there could be other variables. (Like where you move, etc?)-Zydrate[][] 17:18, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

It's a bug you are having, I wasnt even able to marry that character until I reverted to a much earlier save, Spousal NPCs only set up shops if you decide to live in a different town from where they originate, in Shahvees case, if you live anywhere but Windhelm, she will sell random goods. Although they don't own a physical shop. 15:45, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Shahvee is actually quite an adept merchant. I married her and set her up in my house in Whiterun, and was surprised to find her selling not "random goods" (which sounds like something minor, wooden plates or the like) but orcish and dwarven arrows, armor, soul gems, and decent-quality alchemy potions, among other things. I've seen her working at the alchemy table in the Whiterun home, so I wonder how much the capabilities of the different spouses as merchants depend on their own capabilities (Shahvee is strong in alchemy) and on the equipment available to them.
I wish the game allowed you to designate a container to put things in for your spouse to sell. It would be awesome if she would spend the time I was away flogging all the swords and shields I pick up along the way. -- 22:59, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
She also seems to have some source for ore and ingots that assures a small but constant supply. For instance, she nearly always has one or two ebony ingots for sale. Over time, you can amass quite a bit from her. -- 23:01, 12 February 2012 (UTC)


I am pretty sure she does not sleep. At least in Proudspire... I have been following this woman for days now and cannot find a time in which she goes to bed. Mainly for the intention of the 15% bonus to skill training when sleeping with your partner.

Also is there a way to give her clothing to wear? Apparently you cannot use the command to make her a companion it says, so is there any way to have her change her clothing? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 08:58 on 23 November 2011

As far as sleeping goes, she has a variable sleep schedule when married. Sometimes I've seen her sleeping in the middle of the day, sometimes it's late evening, but she never *goes* to sleep when you are in the house. As for clothing, I don't think it's possible to have her switch clothing. Given the inability to make her a follower, it precludes any option to have her change apparel without liberal use of console commands. 09:54, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
Dang, still have not seen her sleep as of yet though. Ill sometimes wait until the middle of the night and barge into the house to see her sitting at the table waiting for me. Then the same applies for the middle of the day. I just cannot find a time in which she is sleeping. The woman doesn't sleep! she waits...
Thanks for the info though. I guess ill have to try harder. Also thought about the option of getting pickpocket leveled up high enough so I can steal equipped items. Then place another item on them? Would that work? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 04:30 on 27 November 2011
I have tried planting new weapons/armor on people after using the "removeallitems" command, but they apparently would rather walk around naked than in some decent clothes. They don't seem to ever put on the new clothes you give them by pick pocketing them. Also, even with followers, once they are told to "part ways" and go home, they always revert back to their default armor. I tried "removeallitems", then I gave (in this case Lydia) a set of ebony armor, and then I told her to go home (which was nearby). After I watched her go inside the house, I went inside after her and she had already reverted back to her default armor. I have a feeling even if you could get them to wear their new clothes/armor, they would just revert back to their default image as soon as you leave the area. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 06:07 on 27 November 2011
I've seen her sleep around midnight though I still got (werewolf) the bonus even if she wasn't asleep, meaning she does sleep. Even if you're aware or unaware of her, found on Breezehome 4:48, 6 January 2012 — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 00:49 on 7 February 2012
My wife Shahvee and I live in Lakeview Manor. She sleeps from approximately 10pm-7am, every night. I've adopted two kids, Shahvee goes to sleep slightly after them and wakes up slightly before. Eclecnec (talk) 17:48, 25 January 2013 (GMT)

Dialog should change[edit]

If you marry her and set up in a house together, and then ask her if she's always happy, she continues to answer as if she were still working on the docks. -- 11:11, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Many spouses, as well as followers, will retain their original dialogue. In fact, I can't recall one that doesn't. To my knowledge, spouses gain dialogue, not lose it. Eclecnec (talk) 17:53, 25 January 2013 (GMT)

Marriage not available to Nord player?[edit]

The dialog option to start her personal quest, which leads to marriage, does not appear to my Nord character, but will for my Argonian character.— Unsigned comment by (talk) on 13 March 2012

I haven't seen her quest option on any of the characters my boyfriend or I have been playing either, including Khajiit, Breton, Orc, AND Argonian. There's probably some other factor that we're missing. — Unsigned comment by (talk) on 29 March 2012
It does not depend on what race you are. More likely, you were either doing Amren's quest or just caught her at a bad time. Having said that, sometimes the option does not appear at all. Why that happens is unknown at the moment. Wolok gro-Barok 12:54, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Workaround for not getting Shahvee's quest outside[edit]

If you find you cannot get Shahvee to give you the quest to get her amulet while she's at the tanning racks, approach her in the Argonian Assemblage. As long as you're not on one of the shared favor quests, she'll give it to you there. 06:37, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Tried breaking in there and talking to her while they were all sleeping but couldn't enter dialogue with any of them because they all kept warning me to get out. 05:41, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Retrieving Amren's sword is a pre-requisite?[edit]

At first Shahvee was't giving me the option to do her quest, but looking through the GameFAQs boards I saw that apparently she and Amren were the only members of one of their factions. After going to Whiterun and talking to Amren and then completing the quest he gave, Shahvee's dialogue option opened up for her quest. (PS3) 20:56, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Having completed Amren's quest I can confirm that this is not the fix we're looking for. Shahvee still won't give me her quest regardless of her location. Anyone else have any idea's what's wrong here? 10:55, 25 September 2012 (GMT)
Shahvee didn't give my character the quest, but became optional for marriage after the Civil War quest was completed. As far as I remember, both on Empire or Stormcloaks side. --Mr.Killjoy (talk) 17:33, 2 October 2012 (GMT)
Definitely not correct. I have married her two or three times without doing, or before doing, Amren's quest, and always before the Civil War questline ends (sometimes before it even begins), playing as either a Breton or a Redguard woman. However, I think I've always been at least level 25 before getting her quest and marrying her, so perhaps she does not give the quest until you reach a certain level. I also found it absolutely impossible to get the quest when playing as a Khajiit male; the ill feeling between the two races may be the reason the game does not allow this. 14:26, 28 December 2012 (GMT)
No, the problem is that you can't have two radiant quests of the same kind at the same time. If you already have a "Find [person's item] inside [dungeon]" misc. quest, you can't activate an other. Elakyn (talk) 16:19, 28 December 2012 (GMT)
This bug seems to come up if you have cleared one of the possible caves already, and your unlucky enough for that to be the one the game was going to send you to. (I had cleared Cragslane Cavern before talking to her, and she wouldnt give quest). Basically, it tries to give the quest option, sees the cave it is sending you to is cleared, and assumes you already completed it. Since you never started it, you dont get the reward for it. Now, by starting Amren's quest at this point, it turns off the Shahvee quest option till you complete Amren's quest. In other words, once Amren quest is complete, the location Shavee sends you to is "rerolled". It still has the chance of sending you to that one you havent completed, at which point there is no work around unless your on console. This is why for some it works, others it doesnt. I think further testing is needed to see if this bug comes up on if you do ANY of the caves, or just the Cragslane cavern. 08:58, 7 September 2013 (GMT)
She does not give me quest too, confirmed. I have cleared Cragslane Cavern before, and did Amren quest after I read hints here, but still no quest. 09:37, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Shop dialogues[edit]

After marriage she, as well as other spouse, opens her little shop, but there are no argonian merchants in game (except for random skooma traders), so her shopping dialogue is not voiced. Subtitles only. Do you think it should be mentioned on the page? — Unsigned comment by Mr.Killjoy (talkcontribs) at 12:27 on 2 October 2012‎

It should probably be mentioned on the page under the "Bugs" section.--Skyrimplayer (talk) 17:30, 2 October 2012 (GMT)
It probably should be mentioned, yes, but I'm not sure if it's because of a lack of Argonian merchants. Keerava's merchant dialogue works fine, as I recall, so maybe it's just Shahvee herself that's bugged. eshetalk 17:34, 2 October 2012 (GMT)
It would seem like Jenassa has a similar bug.--Skyrimplayer (talk) 17:36, 2 October 2012 (GMT)
Oh, Keerava! I forgot about her. But they have different dialogues, as Keerava has shopping dialogue for foods and drinks, and Shahvee - for general goods. I... can't say the exact quotes, as I have a non-english version. So it can be either argonian lack of voicing bug, or just Shahvee. --Mr.Killjoy (talk) 17:37, 2 October 2012 (GMT)
