Mjoll the Lioness is a Nord who despises the Thieves Guild and lives with Aer Riften She is a skilled fighter who can be a follower and while capped at 40 what makes her special is that she cannot ever be killed Even after her quest is fished she will not die Another added bonus (or PITA dependg on how you look at it) is that wherever she goes Aer will follow This has led to many jealous Dragonborn husbands secretly killg her little buddy when she’s not around Taarie lives the Radiant Raiment shop Solitude which is pretty special if you decide to move with her but what makes her rey special is that she is the only Altmer (High Elf) candidate the game Fy there’s The game ows one and only one per Dragonborn even if your spouse is killed — unless you use mods or console commands There’s a persistent rumor that players can kill their spouses freeg them to remarry but I suspect that’s a feature added by the Unofficial Patch or other mods that PC players frequently download without realizg how they change gameplay It is not a feature of the official game There’s only one Altmer (female) and one Redguard (also female) who can be married — or two Redguard women if you st the Hearthfire DLC There are no Bosmer (wood elves) or Khajiit (cat people) to marry at male or female If you want to marry anyone else you’ll need to be usg mods or console commands.

The ma differences between spouses aside from appearance and voice is where they live whether or not they can be followers and how likely they are to be killed I recommend marryg someone who is a follower even if you don’t take them with you on adventures because you can access their ventory and give them weapons armor staffs enchanted items and health potions to help keep them alive Towns and Hearthfire homes do get attacked and death does happen unless your spouse is one of the few programmed “essential,” or unless you’re usg mods and console commands For more about see this Elder Scrolls wiki page or this Unofficial Elder Scrolls wiki page Let’s take a look at our choices… COMPANIONS Omluag is a Breton who lives the Warrens (basicy the homeless shelter) of Markarth Odfel is a Nord who shares a sm house with an orc and whose claim to fame is a unique pickaxe ced Rocksplter Perth is a Breton mer Soljund’s Skhole who looks like he should be followg Dorothy and Toto to see the Wizard He shares a house with Tuthul (who is kd of hot lookg and has a cool mohawk but isn’t a candidate – why?).
