This Mod Makes the Skyrim Grandma Your New Companion

Shirley Curry, also known as the Skyrim Grandma, can now be recruited as a companion to follow you on your adventures. Titled The Shirley – A Skyrim Follower, the mod is available on Nexus Mods for Skyrim: Special Edition and Skyrim VR, and Bethesda.net for PC and Xbox.

Shirley Curry, the beloved Skyrim Grandma, finally comes to the game as a follower you can recruit! She’ll join you on your adventures, but don’t expect her to simply carry your burdens! She’s got more personality than all the vanilla followers combined, and we’re sure she’ll be a great companion, and a friend. And a grandma!

Skyrim has received a whole laundry list of mods since its release, some even recreating new areas from the land of Tamirel, and companion mods are no new thing. But it’s always fun to have a new companion to try out.

Shirley can be recruited as a companion after completing a short quest. She is a barbarian-style build, wielding a massive two-handed sword and a bow for ranged attacks. She has also received a fully fleshed-out backstory, in case you want to chat with her instead of raiding caves and bandit camps. Many of her stories have been inspired by some of Shirley’s YouTube channel.

You’ll find Shirley living in a small cottage called Brightwood, located in the mountains east of Drelas’ Cottage, north-west of Whiterun. Her cottage can act as a home for the player, equipped with all the crafting stations you may need. It is also filled with Easter Eggs, which Shirley fans would recognize. You’ll find a horn in the cottage which can be used to summon Shirley to your side.

Shirley was delighted when we presented this idea to her, and not only gave us her blessing, but also offered up her voice, to give the genuine authenticity this mod deserves! That’s right, you’ll hear Shirley’s real voice in-game as she travels with you! No spliced YouTube audio, no fancy computer generation. This is the real Shirley, in all her glory!

The FAQ section of the mod also states that it will be coming “soon” to Skyrim Classic. And as much as you like Shirley, she is not marriageable, as the mod is based on a real person, and that would be very weird. You cannot take her weapons to use them, but you can craft replicas of them after completing her introductory quest.
