"Candy, candy -- he makes so much. Uncle Sweetshare has a magic touch! So it's back to the workshop in the snow! With lovely lanterns all aglow! He he! Ha ho! He he he ha ha ho!"
―Uncle Sweetshare[src]

Uncle Sweetshare is an insane Nord alchemist who refines moon sugar and resides in his workshop.


Uncle Sweetshare is a crazed moon sugar refiner, presumably from the use of the drug. He often speaks in a jolly and song-like tone, and refers to moon sugar as "candy treats".

He had an assistant, M'nashi, who had a moon sugar addiction. M'nashi had accidently overdosed on the drug and died. Uncle Sweetshare says he had buried him outside and allegedly "all the horkers came to sing" for the now deceased Khajiit. In reality M'nashi was not buried, but instead his corpse was left lying exposed in the snow, though it is unknown if the horkers in fact did come to sing.


The Moon Sugar MysteryEdit

Jeleen will mention "a strange hat worn by a strange old man who sang a strange nursery-like song" as part of the investigation, giving a hint that it is Uncle Sweetshare. Going inside the workshop, Uncle Sweetshare can be found. He will gladly admit to his crimes. He can be given the choice of either stopping or being killed. Which ever way chosen, all that is needed is his White Colovian Fur Helm to complete the quest.


Uncle Sweetshare has more magicka than health and will use spells to attack the Nerevarine if fought. He uses a Wooden Staff as a weapon.

Show: The Moon Sugar Mystery
Inside Uncle Sweetshare's Workshop:

"He he! Can it be? A visitor in my workshop? How can I help you, sweet Nerevarine (Player name)? I have candy treats to spare, if you come in search of happiness! Oh, so you're here to ask me about the moon sugar investigation! I see, I see, he he he he he he!"

candy treats "My candy treats are tasty, they are! And filled with special sugar and love! They bring happiness! Happiness to everyone on Solstheim! That's what I do, you see! I give out my special sugary treats and spread happiness throughout the land! It's difficult work, but oh so very rewarding! M'nashi certainly thought so. Ahh, M'nashi, the dear lad...."
M'nashi "M'nashi was my assistant! He helped me make my candy! He so loved his sugar, M'nashi did. Loved it a little too much, I'm afraid! He died, you see. His, ah, sweet tooth got the better of him. I buried him, just outside. We had a lovely little ceremony. The horkers came and sang for him, they did! He he he! Ha ha ha ha ha!"
horkers "Strange creatures, horkers. Did you know they can walk on land AND swim in the water?"
moon sugar investigation "That Severia Gratius is so grumpy! Maybe I should visit her next! Because that's what I do, Nerevarine (Player name)! I visit the sad and miserable and spread all the happiness I can! It is the way of Uncle Sweetshare, you see! Now that Jeleen, there's a sad, sad boy. His true love has disappeared, don't you know. Very sad, very sad. That's why I sang to him, Nerevarine (Player name)! He needed something extra, something special! Sugar and a song! It cures all!"
Uncle Sweetshare "That's me, you see! Uncle Sweetshare! Just like in the children's rhyme! When I found that old song the lyrics moved me like nothing else in my life! I knew at that moment who I truly was, and what I was meant to do! So I had this workshop built! I make treats here, you see! Delicious treats with the special sugar! Moon sugar! He he, ha ha! Then I spread my cheer throughout the land! But it's all a secret! Shhhhhhhh...."
You're mad, and must be punished for your crimes! "He he he he he! Mad? Mad, you call me? Oh no, Nerevarine (Player name) is you who are mad! For how can anyone who doesn't recognize true happiness ever be considered sane? Oh why oh why can't you people just be happy? Well, let's get to it then! He he he, ha ha!"
Promise you'll stop poisoning people, and I'll spare your life. Just give me your white helm and I'll bring it back to Severia Gratius as 'proof' of your death. "Give you my helm? Stop sharing...stop sharing my sugar? He...heh...ho...hmmm.... Distressing...most distressing.... But you WILL let me live? I do so love to live, Nerevarine (Player name)! All right, then. We have a deal! Here's my white helm, and you have my promise I will not spread any more cheer! I will keep my candy all to myself! That won't be so bad, will it? He he he he! Ha ha ha!"

If chosen to spare:

"Ha ha! What's this? Why it's little Nerevarine (Player name), come to pay Uncle Sweetshare a visit! I've been a good boy, Nerevarine (Player name)! I promise! He he he he he!"

Uncle Sweetshare "Why that's me, Nerevarine (Player name)! At used to be me. I don't feel much like Uncle Sweetshare anymore, to tell you the truth! Not without my white helm! But that's just fine! Ha ha ha ha! Because I still have my scrumptious treats, with all the sugar I can eat! He he he he he!"


  • Uncle Sweetshare is a reference to Santa Claus. Similarities include owning a workshop, having assistants, speaking in a jolly tone, and giving "gifts" to children.
  • Uncle Sweetshare was intended to be an NPC called Grandfather Frost, who was a Breton, had a different song, a beard and the Slavic name of Santa Claus. This was changed before the release of the DLC for being too much like Santa, but can still be found in the game files with the ID grandfather frost.
  • When asked, Jeleen will describe Uncle Sweetshare as "certainly no Nord" although he is in fact a Nord in-game.
  • He was intended to have a red colovian fur helm instead of a white one. The red version can still be found in the game under the ID fur_colovian_helm_red.
  • Both M'nashi and Uncle Sweetshare wear green common robes.
