My first Steward was Iona. I brought her from my Proudspire manor house to be the steward at the home that has the area with the giant and mammoth just around the corner. Well i had just brought Iona there and I had only fairly recently started using her as my companion when doing quests. i was really enjoying her actually. Then one day i decided we would walk around the corner and off that giant and mammoth. All was going well until the mammoth started chasing me farther into the woods. I had to leave Iona to take care of the giant. When i killed the mammoth and got back to the giant he was still alive and Iona was missing. I killed him but never found her.I had to just assume she was dead. The death of Iona was confirmed when i brought Jordis back to the home and she wanted to be the steward.I figured she wouldnt have brought the dialogue up if Iona was alive.I was kinda sad and for a few days i would just go out there and walk around in the area hoping to locate a body to really prove it, but no such luck. Well Jordis may be an idiot, but shes managed to help me alot so ill keep her around.
