Claudette Perrick

Claudette Perrick is a Breton alchemist and proprietor of The Gilded Carafe in the Imperial City Market District. She sells alchemy apparatus, ingredients, and potions. Until you complete the Unfriendly Competition quest, Claudette complains that Thoronir's low prices at The Copious Coinpurse are hurting her business.

Like most of her merchant colleagues, she dedicates her life to her shop and only allows herself a limited amount of spare time. Her bedroom is located on the second floor of the shop, and she sleeps there every night between midnight and 6am. After waking up, she heads downstairs and takes her breakfast at the small dining arrangement at the bottom of the stairs. At 8am, she unlocks the door to open the shop up for business. She closes up at 8pm and immediately exits the shop for an evening stroll at the city's popular Arboretum. At midnight, she heads back to her shop and her bed. After closing up shop on Sundas, Claudette will treat herself to dinner and drinks at the Merchants Inn until midnight.

She wears traditional upper-class attire consisting of a blue velvet outfit with matching blue suede shoes. She also carries a sample of glow dust, her shop key, and a considerable amount of gold. In combat, Claudette relies on a standard set of leveled spells typical for alchemists.


When you greet her in the shop, she will say either of the following lines:

"I have everything for the budding alchemist under one roof."
"The Gilded Carafe, for all your alchemical needs. Claudette Perrick, service with a smile."

When asked about the city, she will do a bit of advertising for a friend of hers:

Imperial City
"Also try my friend, Ogier Georick, The Main Ingredient, here in the District."

Quest-Related DialogueEdit

Unfriendly CompetitionEdit

When speaking to her the first time, she will say:

"I have everything for the budding alchemist under one roof. Far more than Thoronir would ever have, despite his horrid business ethics."

On the unfair competition made by Thoronir, she has the following to say:

"That guy is going to run me out of business soon. His prices are so low, I don't know how he does it. I think he's up to something. If you're interested, you should head over to Jensine's 'Good as New' Merchandise. She heads up a committee that is trying to investigate him."

She will also direct you to Jensine:

"Talk to Jensine. She can help you better than I can."

When all is said and done, she will be more forgiving:

"Thoronir didn't turn out to be such bad fellow after all. I'm glad he decided to join the Society."

And, after you have solved the problem, she will add a little extra to her usual greeting:

"Hello again. You're more than welcome here!"

Seeking Your RootsEdit

Once you harvest a Nirnroot plant, you will immediately be directed to one of Cyrodiil's alchemists. Asking Claudette about the mysterious plant will net you different responses depending on whether you have a sample in your inventory or not:

"I can't help you if you don't show me what you're talking about."
"That root seems to have strange properties the likes of which I've yet to see duplicated in other flora of its ilk. Hmmmm... I believe that Sinderion in Skingrad could serve your inquiry better, as his area of expertise centers around things of this nature."

Once you've spoken to Sinderion, she will instead encourage you:

"Good luck with your field work for Sinderion."


Her fame as an alchemist is widespread in the Imperial City, although her naming skills are found to be less impressive:

"The Gilded Carafe. A fine store with a terrible name."
"Claudette Perrick runs a fine alchemy shop. You should check out The Gilded Carafe."
"Have you shopped at the Gilded Carafe?"
"Isn't the Gilded Carafe a nice shop?"
"It's a nice store, at least for alchemists."
"Claudette does a good job. Still, she should rename the place."
"I've browsed Claudette's shop, but I haven't spent much time there."
"I've never shopped there, but I know she carries good alchemy equipment."

Even competitor Ogier Georick will point you towards her:

"If I don't have what you need, try Claudette Perrick at 'The Gilded Carafe'. That's right here in the Market District."

She clearly enjoys the respect of her fellow merchants, as Jensine will say when discussing Thoronir:

"So, Claudette sent you, huh? Well then, she usually sizes up people well, so you may be just what we're looking for."


  • If your Mercantile skill is at least 50, the Birthright of Astalon will become available in Claudette's inventory. It is a unique cuirass available nowhere else.
  • If you approach the nirnroot sample in her shop, it will show the red hand icon to indicate that taking it is stealing, however you will not receive a bounty for taking it.
