Granny Varis

Granny Varis is the Dark Elf caretaker at the Mournhold Temple, and the mother of Trels Varis, a journalist who is trying to expose King Hlaalu Helseth's alleged poisoning of his predecessor. If you meet her and her husband, Gee-Pop Varis before doing the Muckraking Journalist quest, you can blackmail Trels into stopping his operation. Killing her while Trels is still alive will enrage him, prompting him to attack you upon speaking to him.

She wears common clothing including pants, shoes, shirt, skirt, and a ring. Aside from her natural resistance to fire and the sanctuary provided by her ancestors, she knows the following spells: Absorb Health (ranged), Almalexia's Grace, Almsivi Intervention, Divine Intervention, and Telekinesis.
