Nerida - Imperial Rogue Follower SE

"She spends her days making cakes and poisons... Maker, tell me you didn't try the cake!"


Nerida is a woman always on the run, never looking back. Usually because she has a talent for getting into trouble with the authorities, but she is also running away from her past, disappointments, and bad decisions.
Life in Tamriel is harsh and she has learned that lesson. She is out for coin and treasures, taking it all and never giving anything back. She can be nice, but be careful when she offers you a drink... it might be poisoned.
Just recently Nerida had came to Whiterun, where a guard took her away for questioning about the sudden rise of vanishing coin purses. That was the day when a stranger came into her life and changed everything.


Nerida is an Imperial rogue / archer follower with a customized voice and her own idle comments and combat lines. It's based on FemaleYoungEager, but pitched down a bit and edited to fit her darker nature.
She isn't sweet and sugar at all, but a person who looks out mostly for herself. She will be loyal to you, but don't expect her to turn into a gallant heroine, she's a material girl.



Nerida comes in two versions: the custom voice one will have unique dialogue, interactions and personality. The vanilla voice one is like any normal follower using the standard FemaleYoungEager voice and will have none of the extras.



At first you'll find Nerida in the Dragonsreach Dungeon (Jail) in Whiterun, later she'll go to the Bannered Mare if dismissed. If you choose to use the vanilla voice version of Nerida, she'll be always located in the Bannered Mare.



Nerida has an extra dialogue option ("Let's talk for a moment") where you'll find several options. Once a day you can ask her for potions, poisons and lockpicks, or she can teach you in rogue-related skills. You can also give her a share of of the loot in form of plain gold or valuable items. All this will affect her affection towards you, which has influence on her responses and the possibility of marriage.




Once her affection is raised enough by giving her loot, she will have a short conversation with you. After this she can be married like a normal NPC (Talk to Maramal, wear the Amulet of Mara and ask Nerida if she's interested in you)


Combat Style:


Nerida prefers to fight in ranged combat, but she can also dual-wield when in close quarters.
When she's in danger, she also can use Voice of the Emperor once per day.




Nerida comes with a darker coloured version of the Tembtra Thief Armor. For close combat she has two daggers, but since she prefers to fights dirty and from afar, she mostly relies on her special bow, the Poison Ivy. The enemy might realize the hit, but then it's already to late. Additional she has some healing potions, lockpicks and 200 Elven arrows.

The subtitles for Nerida's relationship dialogue don't match the spoken lines, this is done intentionally and not a bug.

Needed to flag another mod fe, as I never flagged voiced followers before.

Just know, hell lot of work to reasign all thos conversation lines, dial etc.

The reason I never did it ?


Thank you again for a "different" mod, appreciate your work, must have been quite time consuming.

I just found Nerida in the prison.  She looks great.  I noticed her body looks stiff is there an SMP-HDT, 3BBB or 3BA body for Nerida, or is someone working on one?


Nerida's meshes and textures are all loose files in the Data folder so you can easily replace or edit them. To my knowledge there aren't any body replacers for her, at least nobody asked for permission ?

you will obvious need to convert the outfit to fit whatever body you are using in Outfit Studio

I get that.  I have never used outfit studio before, so I have been reading all the guidance on Bodyslide and Outfit Studio.  It seems my brain is slow, and I am more confused than ever.  Do any of you know of a good document and or video I can use to learn how to do this for myself?

Yes, Hel Rising will soon make its return ? I made some improvements, and am currently testing everything.


You're probably tired of questions like this by now. But what about Shindara? I personally thought she was your best work.

Thanks, glad to hear you like her ?


My plan is to bring back Shindara eventually but I can't estimate when it will be. It will depend on how much I want to make updates as my free time for modding is far more limited as it was in the past.
