Pincer is a pet mudcrab. If the Dragonborn has adopted a male child, the child may come home with Pincer and ask if he can keep it. If the Dragonborn allows this, Pincer will follow the child around the house and will stay in the bedroom if the child leaves the house.


  • The child who owns Pincer never mentions his name, and his name isn't shown when looking at him. Two ways for the name of the pet are to either kill the pet, or with a follower command them to do a task and hover over the animal with your cross hairs thus revealing its name and not resulting in the death of the pet.
  • If the Dragonborn kills Pincer, the respective child will become upset and not speak to them.
