Not to be confused with Zairana.
"Well, my family back in Hammerfell didn't approve of my interest in lethal poisons and death in general. So I left, and wandered north."

Zaria is a Redguard alchemist and the owner of Grave Concoctions in Falkreath.


She came to Skyrim when her family didn't approve her choice of becoming an alchemist and her interest in poisons and death. Once she arrived in Falkreath, she felt right at home, citing its huge cemetery as the likely reason for the feeling.

She explains the name of her store was a result of Falkreath being defined by its large cemetery.

Zaria is a possible target needed to be intimidated by initiating a brawl.



Why name your store Grave Concoctions? "I know it's a bit strange. Not exactly a name to bring comfort to the sick and ailing who come to buy a poultice or salve. But what you must understand about Falkreath is that our town is defined, for better or wrose [sic] [Do not change this to worse. This misspelled word is how it appears in-game.], by the large and ancient cemetery here. That's why the inn is called Dead Man's Drink, the farm is called Corpselight Farm, and so on. I suppose it's sort of a running joke."
There aren't many Redguards in Skyrim. What brought you here? "Well, my family back in Hammerfell didn't approve of my interest in lethal poisons and death in general. So I left, and wandered north. When I found this town, with its huge cemetery, I felt right at home. I opened the shop and I've never looked back. This is where I belong."


  • "Someone new, perhaps someone looking for me to mix something up for them?"
  • "Don't let the shop's name frighten you away. I have plenty of reliable tonics and healing potions to sell."
  • "Falkreath's warriors always return, one way or another."
  • "If either these Nords or Imperials had some red in their blood this war would be over."
  • "Call upon me if I can be of any service."
  • "Browse as much as you like, please."


  • She was originally supposed to succeed Helvard as Siddgeir and Dengeir's housecarl. This is likely why she is essential.
  • She has been living in Falkreath for over twelve years.
