* StatuesqueStunner: Since she's a orc, and a attractive one at that, she's taller than any race but Altmer.

* BrutalHonesty: He is anything if not honest when he explains to you what he needs your help with - namely, going through a tomb full of bandits and Draugr to get a mysterious stone that might or might not be there.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: A walking example if the ''Dragonborn'' DLC has been installed. [[spoiler:He's one of the last surviving members of House Telvanni. If the Dragonborn completes Master Neloth's quests, s/he is made an honorary member of the same house. Unfortunately, there's no option at any point to tell Brand-Shei about this, or make any sort of offer to introduce him to Neloth.)

* AerithAndBob: You can comment on his weird name for a Dark Elf, though there is a very good reason for it.

* NiceGuy: Snarks aside, he easily is one of the nicest merchants in Riften, especially compared to [[JerkAss Grelka]]. He politely salutes you whenever you pass close to his shop, gladly explains his origins to you, and is very grateful when you help him recover a clue about his origins.

* VideogameCaringPotential: The first Thieves' Guild mission has you frame him for stealing, which leaves him in jail for the rest of the game. But if you prefer, you can drop the ring that you were supposed to place on him; he never gets arrested, and you still get into the guild.

* NoTrueScotsman: He will express this opinion toward an Orc Dragonborn, who he will call a "filthy city Orc". Ironically enough, this trope is what Malacath thinks of ''him''.
-->'''Malacath:''' You don't deserve to call yourself an Orc! You're weak, you're small, and you're an embarassment!

A rather unlikable armor merchant working on Riften marketplace.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: This is her motivation; she wants to get as much money as possible so she can leave Skyrim. Considering the country is in the middle of a Civil War, Dragons are coming, and she lives in a WretchedHive to boot, you can hardly blame her.

her. However, no matter how much gold you personally spend at her stall, she never actually leaves, nor does fixing any of those things lessen her desire to go.



** Played with via the Hold Guards. Those outside of Riften, who didn't know Grelod personally, consider the news to be that of a tragic murder of an elderly woman. Hold Guards ''inside'' Riften, however, consider her such an AssholeVictim that they don't even bother to arrest you, even if they see you leave the orphanage on the day she was killed.
* AssholeVictim: When she's killed, the children ''cheer'', and her more kind-hearted assistant is more shocked by how blatant and abrupt the murder was than the fact that it happened at all. You don't even get a bounty for killing her and everybody in town just rolls with it because everyone agrees that she was a horrible person.

* StrawFeminist: You've only got her word for it that the Companions (who count several female members among their ranks) were against her from the start. This leads to some confusion, if not HypocriticalHumor, if you're playing a female Dragonborn who has completed the Companions' questline [[spoiler:and been named Harbinger]], since you're living proof that the outfit is not remotely sexist.

* StrawFeminist: You've only got her word for it UnderestimatingBadassery: She claims that the Companions (who count several purposefully sent a "young whelp" to fight her for practice because they underestimated her for being a woman. She ended up killing him on accident. [[ShowDontTell Of course, there exists no on-screen sexism other than maybe the Empire having no female members among their ranks) were against her from the start.

* StrawFeminist: Olfina Gray-Mane can come across this way. She'll hail a female Dragonborn by telling her not to let the men treat her badly, but snaps (unprovoked) at a male Dragonborn, asking if he just can't stand the sight of a strong woman. The straw part comes in when you remember that Skyrim has nearly as many female warriors running around as male, and nobody bats an eye.

* OutlivingOnesOffspring: An especially tragic (and infuriating) version. Maven is, thanks to some of her content being DummiedOut (mods aside), [[InvincibleVillain completely]] [[KarmaHoudini unkillable]]. Ingun, however, can be killed by accident if you're not careful. [[note]] She gets caught in a dragon or vampire attack on Riften? Too bad![[/note]] And her family members being what they are, she's likely the only one you'll ''want'' to keep alive.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodParents: He was raised by a kindly Argonian couple.
** Just so we're clear, this is the Dunmer and Argonians we're talking about -- two races known for [[FantasticRacism their animosity toward each other]].[[note]]In the backstory, the Dunmer enslaved the Argonians; following the events of ''Morrowind'' and ''Oblivion'', the Argonians revolted and took over much of the Dunmer's homeland.[[/note]] This makes Brand-shei's adoptive parents one of the best examples of this trope ''ever''.

* DirtyCoward: In very sharp contrast to most orcs. He tries to hire you to kill the leader of the giants and let him take credit for it to prove himself to Malacath, and in the cave on the way to its lair, he rather pointedly flees from the normal giants along the way.
