|Daedric Artifact: Skeleton Key (0003a070)|
The Skeleton Key is a Daedric artifact acquired by the player after killing Mercer Frey. The Skeleton Key is an unbreakable lockpick, making it rather useful to enterprising thieves.
The Skeleton Key also has a secondary, less known function as being used to keep Ebonmere, a well from which luck flows into the world, open. The player is tasked with returning the key to Ebonmere in the Twilight Sepulcher to restore luck to the Thieves Guild. Until then, the player may retain the key indefinitely for their own use.
