Ruki at Gjukar's Monument
"We're together now. And we will be forever."

Ruki is the ghost of a Nord warrior and the wife of Fenrig. During the quest The Book of Love, she can be found constantly combing the area surrounding Gjukar's Monument for Fenrig, having received word that his most recent battle did not end well. She wears standard farm clothes, with matching boots and a hat.

Ruki is obviously worried about the fate of her lover, saying, "I'm searching for my Fenrig. He was marching with Gjukar's men, who they say were wiped out here. I've turned over every body, though, and I can't find him. Please help me look. He has a bright red beard and hair." When you express confusion about there being no bodies around, she'll grow angry at your blindness and snap, "Are you a fool? Look at the bodies around you. Even if you're blind, surely you smell the blood." and "I don't have time for your foolishness. Either help me or be gone." She will then add: "Come, help me search for Fenrig." and "He must be here somewhere..."

When you locate Fenrig, and explain that his wife is searching for him, he will respond: "Ruki? Where is she?" When you tell him about Gjukar, he will say: "We're expected to fight there tomorrow. Gjukar elected to camp here for the night. I don't like it, though." When you offer to escort him back to his wife, he will respond: "If she's come this far from home, it must be important. Lead on. I just need to report back to camp by sunrise." When the two dead lovers are finally reunited, a brief conversation will take place:

Ruki: "Fenrig! You're alive!"
Fenrig: "Of course I am. What brings you here?"
Ruki: "I had heard that Gjukar's men were wiped out. I came to find you."
Fenrig: "But that battle isn't expected until tomorrow... Ruki, what's going on?"
Ruki: "I'm so confused. What's happening?"
Fenrig: "It doesn't matter. I'm here. We're together now. And we will be forever."

Together they float up into the sky to spend eternity with one another among the stars.
