"The forge is strong and so is our chief, Larak. I'm content."

Shuftharz is an Orsimer blacksmith found in the Orc Stronghold of Mor Khazgur in Haafingar.


She is the second wife of Chief Larak. She was given the job of Forge-wife, having to provide weapons and armor for this little settlement. She will tell the player that "by tradition, a mother always teaches her children how to smith" so she has taught her son, Olur, the Blacksmith job and now he takes care of the forge and the mine, but mostly spends his time near the smelter.

Shuftharz works in the small workshop on the south side of Larak's Longhouse, tending the forge.


Being a blacksmith she will sell random weapons and armor, having a base of 400 GoldIcon, and will also pay full price for Orichalcum Ore from the mine on the hill above the forge.

If her husband, Chief Larak is killed, Shuftharz will refuse to communicate with the Dragonborn and only say "Go on, leave me alone" if interacted with.


"Are you looking for work? The mines are nearby. You bring me ore, I'll give you coin."

Your weapons and armor are impressive. "It is said that an Orc first learns to wield a hammer in her mother's womb. By tradition, a mother always teaches her children how to smith. If a chief has a second wife, she is called the "Forge-Wife" in honor of this."


Chief Larak

Larak: "Your muscles ripple when you work the forge. It's pleasing."
Shuftharz: "Thank you, my chief."
