"Welcome. Look around. We've got everything you could want in life. At least... that's what Beirand always tells me."

Sayma is a Redguard and the owner of the Bits and Pieces general store in Solitude.

Background[edit | edit source]

She is the wife of Beirand and the mother of Kayd. She refuses to let Beirand join the Imperial war effort against the Stormcloaks, believing it to be too dangerous. Sayma also watches after her son, who can often be found in her shop sitting near the door or playing with the other kids.

Personality[edit | edit source]

She is a warm, outgoing person who cares deeply about her family. If the Dragonborn enters her store, she will be friendly, occasionally saying "You got some sort of fire in your eyes, just like my Beirand."

If asked about her opinion of Roggvir's execution, she will say that she feels it was a harsh fate. She also says that High King Torygg was 'not even a good king,' and was prone to rambling, incoherent speeches extolling the virtues of the Empire.

Conversations[edit | edit source]

Bits and business[edit | edit source]

Sayma: "Sure has been quiet around the shop lately." or "We hardly ever get new customers anymore."
Sayma: "Not that I mind the break, of course. But, still..." or "I suppose in wartime, people aren't looking to part with their old junk..."
Beirand: "We'll make it through, dear. We always do." or "It's okay, dear. More work than ever down at the blacksmith."
(Or) Kayd "Who needs customers and their old junk?" or "Father oughtta punch them in the mouth! That'd get people in here!"

Conversations with the Dragonborn[edit | edit source]

What have you got for sale? "Take a look."
Who is Beirand? "Beirand's my husband. He works the forge up at Castle Dour. I barely see him nowadays, what with him filling orders for the army."
Where you at Roggvir's execution? "No. That was an ugly affair. High King Torygg's death has turned the whole town on its head. And between you and me? He wasn't even that good a king. All of those rambling speeches about the Empire this, and the Empire that."

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "Beirand said you got here just before the execution. Must have been a lovely first sight."
  • "Make sure to recommend us to your associates."
  • "Come back to Bits and Pieces anytime."
