Hert at Half-Moon Mill
Hert with Dawnguard installed

Hert is a Nord lumberjack that owns and runs the Half-Moon Mill with her husband Hern. She is exceedingly warm with her greetings to strangers, but shows some aggravation towards the war's effect on her mill and the high frequency of passing patrols.

She will buy firewood, and will also sell lumber if Hearthfire is installed. If her disposition is raised high enough, she will allow you to cut your own lumber for free.

There are several signs around her cabin that suggest something is "off" with her. If you decide to enter the house in the evening, she can be heard enticing you to "stay a while" with a suggestive voice. She will glow when you cast the Detect Dead spell in her vicinity. The Dark Brotherhood eventually reveals she and her husband are both vampires that feed on passing travelers. Outward signs of her affliction aren't present (see note) and she is routinely seen outside in the day operating the lumber mill. Even though she is a vampire herself she will still become hostile towards you if you are a blood-starved vampire.
