Me and my brony, Aela the huntress, went out and attempted to clear a certain cave near Whiterun, destroying the Silver Hand clan to restore honor to our werewolf kind. I was not prepared for the strength of the final adversary, Kelv the Skinner. After many failed attempts to end him, Aela and I fled the cave. Now, I cannot convince her that the quest is to be temporarily postponed, and she follows me, no matter where I go. Can someone suggest a way to remove her from my party? I have already deselected the quest.

This is the PS3 version of Skyrim. Ergo, I cannot go into the system console or whatever and change anything about the game.

  • There a reason you don't want an extra bow following you around the dangerous countrysides? Just wondering. Nov 13, 2011 at 6:33
  • Yes; I'm part of the dark brotherhood.

    I have died 5 times before killing Kelv the Skinner as well. Stuff that helps: kill his minions first, feed on them to regenerate. Avoid him, let Aela do the damage (he can't kill her, only incapacitate her for a short while). His weapon does major damage, but is slow: avoid his attack, hit him and then back off to avoid again. Hit him multiple times (alternating left-right) to stagger him so he temporarily can't hit you. He is hard, but doable!

    You could try lowering your difficulty settings if you haven't already. Nov 14, 2011 at 19:49

You accepted to do it, so you should do so. Just get enough potions to survive, and beat him...

Unless you recover from a save or temper with PS3 data, there is no way out!

Normal companions can stop following you by talking to them and selecting the last option.


She won't stop following you until you complete the quest, I had that problem too. How I beat Kelv was with a Pet Dog, Aela, and an Enchanted bow. He's not too hard, as long as you let Aela and you Dog do the close combat.
