Nadina - Fully-Voiced Follower
Updated in Anna NPCs 2.0 here![]

Tes5Edit-cleaned. Works smoothly and glitch-free when used on a "clean" save or a new game. Any problems which may occur are mostly likely a glitch on your end.

What users are saying!
"This companion is really amazing right down to every detail. Love her! Please, keep making mods! They are all wonderful." ~ DiGiTaL CLeaNeR

"Best voice acting I've seen on the Nexus/Workshop. Mic is studio quality and the voice acting sounds professional. Excellent mod!" ~ Trave

"I happen to think you are the top companion creater and Voice over working in skyrim." ~ silverpanther34

"I was instantly floored the second I hired her to be my mercenary (or killy buddy as I refer to her as). The amazing AI and the voice acting really brings this character to life. I adore the remarks she makes during battle... this mod is very well done and amazingly scripted. 10/10, definitely keeping this mod for eternity." ~ firestarawesome

Background & Personality:
Nadina is a fiercely independent warrior from Hammerfell. She is an excellent fighter and natural killer, and because of this the Empiral army has sought to use her in battle. She would always decline, until one day when she was captured by soldiers and could only regain her freedom by agreeing to do a job for them, a job uniquely suited to her skills. From that job, she was presented with a choice: to continue to act in the name of justice and righting whatever wrongs she was able, or to turn her back forever on all military and the rigid discipline that came with it. She decided on a little of both, and began life as an adventurer and a sellsword. She might work for free if she could be convinced it was a good cause, and her sword is not always easily bought. She will become loyal to the Dragonborn once she realized who (s)he is.

Feisty and wise-cracking, Nadina says what's on her mind, and she doesn't care about being diplomatic. She may come off as rough, but deep down she still has a sense of honor and justice (though she tends to hide it).

- Location: Dead Man's Drink in Falkreath.
- Redguard 1-H warrior, can dual wield
- Standalone except for body, no other mods needed
- 259 lines custom dialogue and comments
- Levels with player, minimum 1, max 300, so she levels even at Legendary.
- Uses vanilla body, so will use whatever body mod (if any) you have installed.
- Will commit property crimes and violence against enemies.
- Completely independent of the vanilla follower system, with her own uniques scripts and packages. She will neither conflict nor work with follower enhancement mods.
- I will NOT be releasing patches for such enhancement mods. She is already enhanced without them.
- Will ride her own horse when asked, or automatically when player rides and she is an active follower.
- You can set her to live in your house when not following.
- Sandboxes while following, like Serana.
- 'Call Nadina' spell included in case you get separated, only works when she's an active follower.
- She will make potions or arrows for you on request.
- Marriable via standard marriage system. Talk to Maramal about marriage, and get an amulet of Mara.
- Includes fix for marriage bug where fiance walks out before priest is finished speaking.
- You can temper her Messer knives with 1 Steel Ingot, 1 Malachite Ingot, and 1 Leather Strip at the grindstone (requires Glass smithing perk as her messer's damage is similar to Glass sword).

Quest Commentary:
Main Questline: Dragon Rising, Sovengard
Dark Brotherhood: during first quest
Thieves Guild: before meeting Mercer at Snow Veil Sanctum; after meeting Karliah
A Night To Remember: after waking up in the Temple of Dibella, completing the quest
Mages Guild: after the tour with Mirabelle, before the first lessons with Tolfdir
Side Quests:
Blood on the Ice: idle comments during, conversation after completing


Q: Conflicts?
A: Only anything that also alters the vanilla marriage quests, or PotentialMarriageFaction. Experiment with load order.
Q: Her original armor shows through armor I give her. How to fix?
A: 1) Give her a new outfit via the console, such as FarmClothes, then give her new armor via Trade, or
2) Get Anna NPCs[], which updates Nadina and adds a simple wardrobe management.
Q: I can't talk to her.
A: Simply wait a few seconds for her dialogue quest to start up. This could take up to several seconds IF you have a lot of script-heavy mods loaded. No need to save-reload. Also try exit and re-enter; sometimes the game's "on location change" doesn't kick in first time.
Q: Nadina and her horse fight!
A: It's a rare glitch with the basic game. There is NOTHING I did to cause that. She and her horse are in same faction and friends, so they should NEVER fight! If this does happen, you must target them in console and type "stopcombat".
Q: Any future updates?
A: No, none. Nadiana is integrated into and updated in Anna NPCs[], so for any fixes or upgrades you want you must get it.
Q: Would you change x?
A: NO. See previous. Mod is offered as is. It is complete functionality-wise, but personality is less fleshed-out than in the later Anna NPCs.

Voicing by me, Anna Castiglioni

Anduniel  [author] Jun 14 @ 1:57am 
Did you read the FAQ??
FaultyGaming Jun 13 @ 9:06pm 
it isnt letting me talk to her at all ive restarted my computer a few times but it just wont work please help D: :)
ps. big fan of the other mods aswell :D
jaderive Jun 12 @ 10:37pm 
I did use that at one stage, but just wanted to mention those thing in case others were using them them too, if they have the same thing, they'll know to use the other like you said, her own home package o.o
Anduniel  [author] Jun 12 @ 7:52pm 
Set home: you should be using NADINA's own set home dialogue, which works in ANY player home. Such features from other mods you use at your own risk and I do NOT provide support.

sry about posting a bit, but there's a charecter limit on these forums,
I didnt use anna's npc's but probably should've for the clothing , and w/e the marrige part was and other functions was with the mod,
Any follower type mods I use are mhiyh - my home is your home, - wedding mod to have and to hold, spouse mod - spouses can live anywhere, speech - fco followrt chat overhall, ok this mods work find with those as in no crashes or anything like that,
jaderive Jun 12 @ 4:36am 
These are no biggies just saying is all , was onlly about to ask to cook a meal once, ( think its a vanilla thing anyway) no opption to ask about kids, doesnt reconsie kids are there ,
I forgot to cast mark new home on modded home, but she showed up at breezehome ok but no option to tell her to live elsewhere after casting "mark new home" so used mhiyh to take there,
That was fine went thru the follower mod options just fine,
But other than those she is simply wonderfull, her aussie /kiwi accented voice gives her charecter a real immersive cheekiness which makes her a pleasure to have around ...
Splendid job =D

Ok I have a couple of questions 1 or 2 ,
1 how do I compete the quest nadina companion, where you sposed to let her travel wiht you awhile, the quest didnt update after going our seperate ways, ?? the quest was active ( side note the white arrow above her made it easier to see where she was)
2 Im a werewolf after dimounting and going our seperate way, she walks off leaving her horse at teh netrance to falkreath,
I went somehere and changes into beast form, the guards started to arttack me, and nadina's horse Tyr started to attack the guards ?? not sure if thats posed to happen, but luckily the horse was too strong anyway...

Hello, Just finished a semi test drive, from taking her thru 2 dungeons, 1 for grimsever quest, the other to find a secret / power word, lols so funny some of the things she says . I'd like to share some of the remarks ( did a safe to revert to btw )
1 When asked you need her assistance - " I knew this 'd happen, what do you need ? "
2 When seeing an already dead corpse - "whoever killed that one, didnt know how to use a blade properly"
3 When running into a falmer in battle - "you ugly shrivalled white slug, let me poke holes in you" lul'd at that one out loud loll
4 When wearing a amulet of mara and asking for marriage, similar to in the video, but also says
"well your easy on the eye, and Ive grown quite fond of you , sure why not "
After marriage ,. - Greetings " hello sweetheart" "hello dear, I missed you "
was able to ask to cook a meal, respnse was "well not much a cook, but do know a sure fire thing or two"
