A Wanted Woman
Once you’ve finished Main Quest: Dragon Rising and you enter the great city of Whiterun via the main gate, expect a commotion there. Cloaked Redguard warriors (who you find out are of the Alik’r Coterie) are in a heated discussion with the city guard. The Alik’r have already been banned from most of the city after an incident and jailing, but the men are determined to try and find a Redguard woman somewhere inside the walls. Speak to one of the Alik’r if you wish, or they stop and talk to you.
Objective: Find the Redguard woman
The woman in question is Saadia, who is a barmaid in the Bannered Mare. Enter this drinking establishment and let her know about the Alik’r warriors looking for Redguard women. Saadia appears agitated at this news and asks to speak to you privately.
Objective: Speak with Saadia
Target: The Bannered Mare, in Whiterun
Objective: Inform the Alik’r of Saadia’s location
Target: Redguard, on the road to or in Rorikstead
Siding with Saadia: Further Information
Whether you intend to side with Saadia or not, it is worth finding out more about this woman’s predicament. Away from the main hearth of the place, Saadia pulls a knife and demands answers, but this is more in an act of desperation than violence. After answering her, she pleads with you to help her. Agree, or request a reward, and Saadia reveals she is a noble from Hammerfell who fled to Skyrim and has been forced into hiding after an attempt on her life. She says that her attackers are hired by a rival house to turn her blood into gold and drag her back to be executed.
Saadia wishes to hire you to drive the assassins out. Most of the Alik’r forces are mercenaries led by a man named Kematu. Remove him and the remaining forces are likely to scatter. You need to find the Alik’r hideout...
