Dead Lovers Camp is an unmarked location found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The camp is located along a small path that travels north from Old Hroldan Inn towards Soljund's Sinkhole.


Two deceased lovers are found in their camp, with the creature that killed them still nearby.

A woman (named "Breton" in-game) lies next to her journal, which indicates that her name is actually Karan. A Dunmer male named Talvur lies dead on the other side of the campfire.

According to Karan's Journal, Karan was the daughter of a wealthy Markarth merchant, and Talvur was a poor miner. Because Karan's father opposed their union, the two lovers intended to flee east towards Riften, presumably to get married. Talvur had been stashing away a humble nest-egg in a tree stump behind the tent. Two other stumps have Mora Tapinella.

Notable itemsEdit


  • The deceased female Breton in the camp is actually a Nord, according to the data in the Creation Kit.
  • If the Dragonborn returns to the camp after a spell, it will have been cleaned up (all bodies removed) and a Shrine of Mara will be left in the lovers' memory.
  • The animal in the camp is leveled, meaning it can be anything from a wolf to a cave bear.
