Soul Shriven are non-hostile characters located in The Wailing Prison. They are men, mer, and beastfolk of Nirn whose souls have been stripped by Molag Bal on purpose making them eternal will-less slaves in his plane of Oblivion, Coldharbour.
Soul Shriven are forced into labor by the Dremora that guard the Ashen Mine. Many are chained up for the amusement of Molag Bal, tortured inside the prison as well. Eventually, almost all become primal, transforming into Feral Shriven.
