About this mod

This is a mod adding eight new adoptable Mer children to skyrim, made with RS Children resources.

Permissions and credits
I have had several requests to unhide this mod, so here it is. RL has been a garbage fire and I have not had any time to make any edits/fixes to this whatsoever.  Please consider this mod UNSUPPORTED.

A few potential issues/questions:
1. The bosmer kids' hairs are purple.
Yep, sorry. Try downloading Vanilla Hair Variety Plus from the oldrim side. You don't need to activate the .esp, you just need the textures.
2. I adopted one of the kids, but they keep saying "I need to say goodbye/get my things" and they won't leave Windhelm/Solitude/wherever.
This bug happens in vanilla game too. Try going through a couple of quests then go home. They might show up then.
3. I adopted one of the kids, but then they disappeared!
This also happens in vanilla game (google "Lucia disappeared" if you don't believe me). Try moving your family to a new home. They might show up then.
4. Will this be ported for xbox?
If someone else wants to do it, please send me a PM. I will try to check my messages periodically.

This port was kindly done by Azrael_wtf, please give them a kudos!

I really like adoption in Skyrim and usually spend the first part of a playthrough running around snatching urchins off the streets, lol.  But like many other people, I would like to have more options for adoption including the non-human races. There are a few mods adding in Khaijit and Argonian children (which are lovely by the way), and other mods adding in elf children, but none that I could find with the RS Children look, and I wanted mine to match. Hence, this mod.


Aymar is an orphaned Dunmer boy living in Windhelm.  He can be found in the New Gnisis Cornerclub and will happily go with you at the slightest invitation.  He uses the default male child voice.  


Eilonwy is an Altmer girl who's staying in the Solitude Temple of the Divines.   She uses the default female child voice.

Minedhel and Methredhel

These two siblings were unfortunately orphaned when their hunter parents died somewhere in the wilderness (probably attacking a bear, or something). They were able to make it to Stonehills, the nearest settlement, but have been stuck there ever since.  They can be adopted separately.  Incidentally, Methredhel is a girl, she just likes running around in her big brother's clothes.  She'll wear a dress if you give her one.


She can be found in Warmaiden's and uses the default female child voice (a bit jarring on an orc, but it's tolerable because they're tiny).  She's wearing a blacksmith oufit, because if you have to have an Orc child running around, why not teach them a little smithing? But really Batul just wants a family, like the other kids. 

(He looks extra emo here, but he's actually very cheerful).  Uzul has spent his whole life in the stronghold of Dushnikh Yal.   Not many opportunities there, unless you're interested in mining (and he's not).  He'd love to see the world, or at least a different part of it.   He uses the default male child voice.


Llevana managed to make her way to Winterhold, only to find that the College of Winterhold doesn't accept children. Now she's stuck in the Frozen Hearth inn with Nelacar and his...experiments. Can someone please get her out of here?


Faelian has lived a hard life so far being an unwanted child in a harsh city like Markarth. He tries to act haughty like Ondolemar and the other Thalmor in Understone Keep, but under the frowny exterior he's just looking for a little kindness. (To find Faelian, go to Understone Keep, up the stairs like you're going to talk to the Jarl, then head right at the top of the stairs, where the Thalmor always pace back and forth. He's usually sitting in one of the chairs, or sometimes wanders into the smithing area.)

Future plans: None! I am declaring this mod finished, at least for now.

Requires: Hearthfires and RS Children (obviously).
