It is a crime in the Shivering Isles to commit suicide. The punishment for that poor soul is eternity trapped on the Hill of Suicides. The only way to break the curse is for somebody to return the skull to its spirit.


  1. Find the Hill of Suicides.
  2. Find Lorenz Bog-Trotter's skull in Knotty Bramble.
  3. Find M'desi's skull in Rotten Den.
  4. Find Gadeneri Ralvel's skull in Knifepoint Hollow.
  5. Find Salonia Viria's skull in Cann.
  6. Find Limark's skull in Milchar.
  7. Return all of the skulls to their respective owners.
  8. As a reward, the Hero gains the Greater Power Risen Flesh. This is the only other way to reanimate dead humanoid targets besides the Staff of Worms.


  • Erver Devani, the Brother of Gadeneri Ralvel, has unique dialog before and after his sister is freed from the hill. He will also give a sum of GoldIcon to the Hero after his sister's skull is brought back to her.
  • This is a freeform quest and does not have a quest marker for it.

    • Why is it a crime to commit suicide in the Shivering Isles? And why is it the most severe out of them all?
    • Because Sheogorath relishes the suffering of mortals, and suicide brings all that to an end, and thus his amusement.
