Not to be confused with Idesa the Trim.
"I try to keep Grimvar safe, but these are dangerous times."
―Idesa Sadri[src]

Idesa Sadri is a Dunmer and the live-in nanny of Grimvar Cruel-Sea. She may be found at the House of Clan Cruel-Sea or somewhere else in Windhelm. The first time the Dragonborn meets her, she is talking to Grimvar Cruel-Sea about Aventus Aretino commenting about how strange he is and suggesting Grimvar stay away from him.

Afterwards, Idesa can generally be found wandering Windhelm in or near the Cruel-Sea's home or near the marketplace. She can sometimes also be found walking through the Gray Quarter.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • She may ask The Dragonborn to bring an item to be enchanted by Sergius Turrianus.
  • She can sometimes be seen during Blood on the Ice second quest as a target wearing different colored clothing.

Conversations[edit | edit source]

The Black Sacrament[edit | edit source]

Grimvar: "Then it's true, what everyone is saying? That Aventus Aretino is doing the Black Sacrament? Trying to summon the Dark Brotherhood?"
Idesa: "Oh, Grimvar... always with the nonsense. No, no, of course not. Those are just tales..."
Grimvar: "Fine. Then I'll invite him out to play. He lives right there. I'm going to knock on his door..."
Idesa: "No, child! Wait! That boy, that house - they're cursed."
Grimvar: "Ha! Then I'm right. I knew it. He's trying to have somebody killed!"
Idesa: "All right. I won't deny it, child. What you heard is true. But Aventus Aretino walks a dark path. His actions can lead only to ruin. Now, enough. We will speak no more of this. I am the only friend you need.
