Jenassa, waiting for a contract

Jenassa is a Dark Elf ranger who can be found at a table at the Drunken Huntsman shop in Whiterun. Should you choose to pay her fee, Jenassa is available as a follower for 500 gold. As a ranger, Jenassa favors the use of bows, but will enter melee should the situation necessitate, and is also one of the few followers able to dual wield weapons.

Jenassa wears a set of leather armor with matching pairs of bracers and boots. She is equipped with an iron sword, an iron dagger, and a hunting bow supplemented with iron arrows.

It is possible for Jenassa to become a member of the Blades. She also becomes a potential candidate for marriage after being hired by you.

We are not welcome, here.", "It is strange to think that these chambers were once home to the ancient Nords." and "Few would dare to trespass in these ruins. What you lack in wisdom, you make up for in courage."
