|Faction(s)||Leyawiin Castle; Leyawiin; Mahei Family|
Numeen is an Argonian commoner living in Leyawiin with her rascal of a husband, Mahei, who seems to spend most of his time hiding from her. They are both regular guests of the Countess, however, so they are occasionally able to tolerate each other.
Numeen's day begins at 6am when she wakes up and wanders around her home -occasionally conversing with her husband. During the morning, there is chance she will be found either at Best Goods and Guarantees or at the Chapel of Zenithar. Regardless, at midday she heads to the Three Sisters' Inn for a two hour lunch. Afterwards, she will be either be found wandering outside the Chapel or around her house until 8pm. She then sits down for a two-hour dinner with her husband, followed by another two hours of relaxing before bed.
On Middas, at 8pm she will instead head over to the Castle Private Quarters to enjoy a lavish four hour dinner with Countess Alessia Caro. On Turdas, she will return the favour, hosting the Countess at her place from 6pm to 10pm.
Mahei and Numeen are also known as the Derics; the key to their house is called the Derics' Key, and there are two rumors that refer to their constant bickering: "Have you heard the Derics arguing?" and "Have you seen the Derics recently? They're always bickering with one another."
Numeen introduces herself by referring to the difficult relationship with her husband: "My name is Numeen. Have you seen that no-good rascal husband of mine, Mahei? Gods know what he is up to this time..." and brings it up again when asked about the city, "Gods are my witness! I give that man the simplest list of things to do, and somehow he forgets half of it and gets the rest wrong."
- It is likely that Mahei and Numeen were originally Bretons. Almost no Argonians have a surname, and "Deric" is similar to other Breton family names (Liric, Maric, Meric, Aric, Fransoric, and Jenseric can be found in Morrowind and Oblivion). This would also explain Countess Alessia Caro's habit of dropping in to see them despite her racist dislike of Argonians.
