Mim is a Khajiit who appears during several quests in the main questline and Coldharbour. He is first seen on Stirk, and eventually ends up in the Hollow City.

Related Quests[edit]



As you walk towards the summit point with Vanus Galerion and Countess Hakruba he will notice the former and bow respectfully, shouting "Sir!". He will later be one of the mages heading through the portal to Coldharbour.

The Cliffs of Failure[edit]

The Endless War[edit]

After agreeing to join the latest game as a wild card, you can enter the battlefield. Nearby to the entrance you will find Juline and Mim, who just stabbed her.

Mim: "This one is so sorry, Juline. I do this because I must. One of us has to make it out of here and get back to our mission."
<Mim runs off.>
Juline Ginis: "Why, my dear friend? Why have you done this?"

Eventually you can catch up to Mim, who is surround by corpses and is on edge.

"Stay away from Mim!
Don't … don't make this one hurt you. Mim will win this game. Mim will beat everyone and get us out of here. All of us!"
Calm down. I'm here to help.
"Help? You can't help. We're stuck here. Fighting to the death. No one gets out alive. That's just how the game works.
Mim will kill them all. Even the Observer. Then he'll have to let us out. He can't hold us here if he's dead!"
You need to get a hold of yourself. I'm going to help you.
"Help? Just like this one's new master, Thallik, has helped? He tossed me in this pit, gave me this rune, and wished me luck.
I don't even know what to do with the rune!"
I agree that the Observer is the problem here.
"Glad to hear it! Good to know you weren't fooled by his promises. Or are you just saying that?
Maybe he sent you to follow Mim. Maybe you're part of his game. This one doesn't know what to believe! And this stupid rune Thallik gave me. It's useless!"
You stabbed your own ally. Why would you do that?
"Mim needed to slow Juline down. She's hard-headed. Ready to rush into battle at the smallest provocation. It may not seem like it, but Mim saved her life.
What does it matter if this one can't figure out what to do with Thallik's stupid rune?"
What did Thallik say the rune does? (All of the above options lead to this reply.)
"He said it harnessed the power of the dead, whatever that means. Called it his death rune. It's dark magic and Mim wants no part of it!
Show Mim you actually want to help and figure out what to do with the rune. Maybe we can use it against him."
Thallik gave you no instructions at all?'
"Thallik said to look for the runes on the ground. Some kind of circle. The moons take Mim if this one understood a word he said!
You figure it out. Just don't make Mim regret this. This one is trusting you because you haven't attacked Mim. Yet."

If you speak with him again, he will say:

"Whatever that rune does, this one wants no part of it.
Maybe you can figure out how to use it to our advantage. Might even provide an edge against the Observer."

After encountering Thallik and charging the rune, you can return to Mim.

"The scent of death lingers about you.
This one supposes you found a way to harness the true power of the rune, yes?"
Yes, Thallik told me how to use the rune.
"Then our journey continues for a while longer. Watching our steps from here on out, yes?
If you can still help my companions, Mim asks that you do so. We need to find a way out of this. Together."

The Will of the Worm[edit]

If you agree to side with Thallik, Mim can be found at his camp.

needs dialogue

After you speak with Thallik, Mim will ask you to be careful.

"This one thinks you need to be cautious. The champions are fearsome opponents.
But, please, try not to injure my fellow mages."'

After the two champions are defeated, Mim can be found waiting for you outside the entrance.

"Good, good! This one hoped he would find you. Mim worried that some terrible fate had befallen you.
There was a terrible commotion and then the Observer appeared. He seemed angry, but also kind of excited. What did you do?"
I defeated the other champions.
"Ah, that explains it! No one has ever done such a thing before. The Observer said he would have to change the rules now.
But this one wonders, where are his friends?"
They were controlled by the other leaders. I freed them and they ran off.
"I must find them! We will band together and escape this place, one way or another.
Where were you rushing off to, by the way?"
The Observer told me to come collect my reward.
"Yes … that is what the Observer meant when he said he was changing the rules. Thallik was so angry. He stormed off. Muttered that if the Observer died, no one would be left to enforce the rules.
I will find the others and meet you up there."

Thallik will ensorcel Mim to assist his champion.

Later on, Mim will help with fighting the Observer only to get banished. You will find him in a cage with the other mages. He can only say, "This one never expected this development."

If you choose to free the mages, Mim will be found outside the Cliffs.

"What a cruel game we were forced to play! This one is just grateful that we all survived."

The Hollow City[edit]

Mim can be found on the patio outside the Library in the Hollow City.

"This one apologized for stabbing Juline. She … didn't seem to accept it, though. This one thinks she's going to need time to forgive Mim.
Mim hope she knows that what Mim did was for her own good. To save her. Sounds strange, even to Mim, yes?"
