Blood on the Ice[edit | edit source]

If the Dragonborn accuses Wuunferth the Unliving to be the true identity of the "The Butcher," and he is locked away, Arivanya will be the next victim of "the Butcher" in the coming days.

However, if the Dragonborn chooses to cooperate with Wuunferth and tracks "the Butcher" to his next crime scene, it is possible that Arivanya will appear as the next victim, in which, the Dragonborn may save her in the marketplace of Windhelm by killing the butcher before he stabs her.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "I love my husband, but he can be a bit... dull at times."
  • "If the guards would listen to Viola, they'd have caught the Butcher by now." (before completing "Blood on the Ice")
  • "Ugh. I'll need to bathe thoroughly to get this stench off of me."
