Octieve San is a Breton retiree who lives in Solitude. With an Amulet of Mara, the Dragonborn has the option of marrying Octieve.


"I'm too old to work, but that don't make me too old to drink."
―Octieve San[src]

His daughter, Evette San, takes care of him. Critical of his age, he drinks and gambles heavily. Due to his gambling problems, he has accumulated a large sum of debt, and if the Dragonborn helps pay off his debt he offers Two-Handed training.


A Few Words with You

Octieve San asks the Dragonborn to convince Irnskar Ironhand waive his debts.



Evette: "Father, could you clean up the house a little while I'm away?"
Octieve: "Maybe. I'll see if I feel like it."
Evette: "I'm on my feet all day. Can you please do this one thing for me?"
Octieve: "Sure, whatever."

Octieve: "Where've you been all day?"
Evette: "At the market, father."
Octieve: "Well, did you bring back any mead?"
Evette: "I barely make enough for us to eat as it is, father. You can't just drink it all away."
Octieve: "Humph. Some daughter you are."


  • "Being old's not so bad. Daughter keeps me fed, and my working days are done."
  • "Got nothin' better to do than bother an old man?"
  • "You want know the one truth I've learned in all my years? Life's too hard to face sober."


  • Octieve San is a Breton, while his daughter Evette San is a Nord. This may be an oversight, or it may be that Evette's mother and Octieve's wife was a Nord, or Octieve is not her biological father.
  • If the Dragonborn kills Evette San, then it is likely that he will send hired thugs in response.
  • Should Octieve die after being helped, he will leave an inheritance of 100 Gold.
