Birna tending her shop

Birna is a Nord pawnbroker who runs Birna's Oddments in Winterhold and feels depressed about how little custom the shop has; her only regular customer is the housecarl, Thaena, who isn't the most friendly person. Her brother, Ranmir, has a tendency to drink away their earnings.

One of Birna's dialogue options allows you to buy a coral dragon claw, which she suggests is somehow connected with Yngol Barrow.

Since Ranmir spends much of his time drinking inside the Frozen Hearth, Birna must dedicate most of her time to running the store in order to support both herself and her brother. She wakes up at 7am and unlocks the door to the store. She will then stand behind the counter in the store for the next thirteen hours, offering her services between 8am and 8pm. After a busy day of running the shop, she will leave at 8pm to head to the Frozen Hearth. She will find a seat and eat and drink with the other regulars for the next three hours. At 11pm, she will make her way back home. She will stay up for another hour, until heading upstairs to sleep for the next seven hours.

Birna wears a belted tunic and a pair of boots. She is equipped with an iron dagger, and carries a key to Ranmir's house as well as a selection of common items and gold.
