I got the sword Umbra from beating Umbra (the Bosmer warrior) in the Ayleid ruin of Vindasel. I like the Sword but I also have the quest from Clavicus Vile to return it to him.

What is the reward for giving him the sword?

If you give Umbra to Clavicus Vile, he will give you the Masque of Clavicus Vile. The Masque is a Daedric Helmet (heavy armour) that looks awesome and fortifies your personality by 20.

If you keep Umbra, then you get Umbra, the soul-trapping daedric sword you've already seen. Umbra is also weightless while you are one the quest, since it is a quest item. If you intend to keep it, it may be worth not turning the quest in at all.

  • I'd like to add that lore wise in the end it doesn't matter if the Hero of Kvatch/Champion of Cyrodiil keeps Umbra or not. in the Infernal City book which is set after the Oblivion Crisis Clavicus Vile has gotten Umbra as in the book it escapes from Oblivion to Vvardenfell – Memor-X Dec 3 '14 at 22:44
