Not to be confused with The Mind of Madness.

The Mind of a Madman is a location centered around the mind of the deceased Emperor of the Septim Empire Pelagius Septim III.


The Mind of MadnessEdit

The Dragonborn is transported to the Mind of a Madman from the Pelagius Wing of the Blue Palace by Sheogorath and is asked to repair the mind of Pelagius Septim III with the use of the Wabbajack.




  • It is impossible to access the inventory or magic menus while the Dragonborn is in this location and, thus, no magic or items can be equipped.

    •  PC(Fix)   Selecting the dragon in the console and entering the command Disable will effectively "kill" the dragon, as the normal Kill console command cannot kill flying dragons.
