Nadina - Fully-Voiced Follower


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 Impirial 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 face, no other mods needed
- Default body, so will use whatever body mod (if any) you have installed.
- 260 lines custom dialogue and comments
- Levels with player, minimum 1, max 300, so she levels even at Legendary.
- 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 3.0, 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 3.0, 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

Nice Nadina story for you:

I'm out adventuring as usual, and finally steeled myself for some time in prison--the Cidhne mine--for the Forsworn quest (the conspiracy in Markarth, you know). Having done this one before, I prepped by handing over all weapons and all but the most useless armor to Nadina, who griped good-naturely as usual. (You get your stuff back but I did this for convenience's sake.) I went quietly to my fate, and my three followers were left behind.

Next scene, I walk past the locked gate and trudge down to the first mining hole, pickaxe in hand, preparing to start my "penance." I turn around and lo, there's Nadina, who somehow slipped into the mine and is standing there, gloriously dressed in my best armor, saying "Where to, friend? Someplace I can fight?" Wow.
