"People act like Sheogorath's disappearance is of some grave significance. But the Shivering Isles are the same as ever, I assure you."
―Mirili Ulven[src]

Mirili Ulven quote

Mirili Ulven is a Dunmer sorcerer researcher living in Highcross. She is usually found in her house or walking around town. Mirili puts all of her time and energy into learning about the creatures and plants of the Shivering Isles, and has little interest of anything else going on unless it starts to effect her.


Taxonomy of ObsessionEdit

She is conducting some sort of research the others will say when asked about her. When the Hero talks to her she will be cross that she is constantly disturbed in her work and give rude replies.

She will tell them that she is making a Taxonomy for everything on the Shivering Isles but she will ask for assistance to pick the ingredients.

Spells for saleEdit

While not technically a merchant, Mirili has three spells for sale to assist in her quest. She only offers them during a certain stage of her quest, and will no longer offer them once its finished.
