Summerset Shadows[edit | edit source]

Linwe, leader of The Summerset Shadows.

"It's a guild of Altmer thieves, they call themselves the Summerset Shadows. Their leader, Linwe, he's the worst of the lot. He steals valuables from the dead."

The Dragonborn is told by Delvin Mallory of the Thieves Guild to go to Windhelm and talk to Torsten Cruel-Sea. When done, he tells the Dragonborn about his daughter, Fjotli, and how he believes their leader, Linwe, killed her (though unbeknownst to him, it was actually the the Butcher). He says Linwe took Fjotli's Silver Locket (a "Cruel-Sea family heirloom") and that he wants it back. He tells the Dragonborn to talk to Niranye, an Altmer living in Windhelm, for more information.

When talked to, she starts to get worried and goes on to tell the Dragonborn how she used to fence for the guild before Linwe and his boys moved in and forced her to fence for them. She also tells the Dragonborn how Linwe didn't kill Fjotli, but merely stole it off her corpse. She does however tell the Dragonborn the location of their hideout, and says she will begin to fence for the Dragonborn and the guild if they can get rid of the Summerset Shadows.
