Related Quests[edit]


Invitation to Orsinium[edit]

When you first approach her location near the Merchant's Gate, you'll hear the following:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow : "What are you doing? We can't let Chief Bazrag deal with the Winterborn by himself!"
Danual Saklin : "I didn't come all this way to die, Elf! That isn't what I signed up for!"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow : "Damn it! Where are all these Winterborn marauders coming from?"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow : "Anyone see where the chief and his warriors went? Anyone?"
Flies-In-Wind : "All I see is death and Ice-Heart's damn Winterborn. A whole lot of Winterborn …."

Speaking to her, she'll say:

"Did Orsinium send you? Are you part of the reinforcements?
The Winterborn came out of nowhere. It happened so fast. They took our cargo into the hills and the Orc peasants chased them. That's when Chief Bazrag and his warriors arrived."
Slow down and tell me what happened.
"Our caravan was heading for Orsinium, the new Orc city, when the Winterborn landed on the wagons like flesh-flies on skeever pie.
The Orc peasants refused to let their supplies be taken, so they chased the marauders into the hills."
You let defenseless peasants go after the marauders?
"In case you haven't noticed, these cracked acorns aren't worth their weight in blood-berry pudding!
Besides, before we could rally our forces, Chief Bazrag and his Orc warriors arrived. He told us to wait here and then went after the marauders."
I'll go help the chief.
"I knew I liked you the moment I saw you!
Chief Bazrag is big and mean and looks like he can fight, but there were an awful lot of marauders. Ice-Heart's Winterborn won't stop until Bazrag and all the Orc peasants are dead. You better hurry!"
Aren't you coming with me?
"I will. Eventually. Maybe. I mean, look around!
These people are injured! What happens if the Winterborn come back? Someone has to protect them, keep them from being picked off one by one. Anyway, I'll keep them safe while you help Chief Bazrag."
What brings a Wood Elf to Wrothgar?
"This caravan brought me! I thought we already covered that?
Oh, you mean specifically. The invitation. You got one, too, didn't you? It talked about testing yourself against the most savage land in Tamriel. That was a challenge I couldn't pass up!"
What can you tell me about Chief Bazrag?
"He's a chief! In charge of an Orc clan or something.
If you ask me, he's got more than a chip on his shoulder. It's a whole damn mountain! I don't think he's a big supporter of King Kurog, but he saved us before he went to help the peasants."
Was the chief part of your caravan?
"No, we were the caravan guards. Bazrag said he was on patrol, looking for Winterborn marauders. Some scary Reach warlord named Ice-Heart leads them. Even Bazrag seemed a bit nervous just talking about him.
Now go help the chief before it's too late!"

After meeting up with her, Bazrag, and Talviah Aliaria, she'll tell you:

"The others went on ahead to the city, in case you're wondering.
I, um, felt kind of responsible for sending you into harm's way, so I waited around to make sure you were all right. And here you are! Right as rain!"
So what's a Wood Elf doing in a place like this?
"Same as all the others. Looking for adventure!
I figured there wasn't a better place to make a name for myself than in the untamed wilderness of Wrothgar. Are you going to Orsinium?"
Yes. I need to present myself to Forge-Mother Alga.
"Ah, King Kurog's mother! She's one smart woman and an even smarter Orc!
From what I've heard, you want to stay on her good side. I understand she has a fierce temper."
What about you? Are you going to Orsinium?
"Eventually. But first they asked me to go to Frostbreak Fortress. I think they realized I was good with a bow and they need something filled with arrows. Hopefully, it's more of these Winterborn!
Who knows, maybe I'll see you there!"

Post-Quest Dialogue:

"You're leaving, too? I can't blame you. I really can't stay around here much longer. Not after everything that's happened."
Are you doing all right?
"There's so much I want to tell you. To thank you for. I've learned so much from you. Out of everyone here, you're the only person I never lost faith in.
I wish I could just go and follow you around forever"
What's stopping you?
"Tempting, but i need to find my own way for a while.
But no matter where the wind blows, leaves from the same tree eventually find each other again. That'll be the same for us. You'll see."
Did King Bazrag talk to you?
"Yeah. He wanted me to stay and help train the Orc archers. Even offered me my own squad and a fancy title.
But after everything that happened, I just need to get away so I can put this all behind me"
Where will you go?
"I'm not sure. I might return to Valenwood, see my family. I'm kind of missing my loved ones after what we've been through.
I wonder if Solgra had a family. She... never mentioned it."

The Hidden Harvest[edit]

While trying to get to the Harpy aeries, you'll hear a familiar voice behind you:

Corporal Lugrots: "Keep up, Elf! Those harpies aren't going to kill themselves."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "But there are so … many … stairs …."
Corporal Lugrots: "No time for complaints, either! We have a mission to complete!"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "All right, all right. Pushy Orc. Just tell me when you want me to make the strike."
"Gusting winds. Flying birds trying to eat us. Fire everywhere. But that up there? That's a stationary target that needs an arrow in it.
Just tell me when you want me to make the strike."
Loose your arrow!

Eveli shoots and hits the aerie on the opposite tower:

"Well … that was … amazing!
We get to do that again, right?"

At the next tower:

Sergeant Rorburz: "Tower secure! Good work, outsider!"
Sergeant Rorburz: "The Wood Elf is right behind me!"
<A Harpy swoops down and carries Sergeant Rorburz away>
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I'm getting really tired of you Orcs trying to leave me be—that's strange, where did the sergeant go?"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "How typical! Now I know why Orsinium put out that call for help."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Well, at least you're still here. Let me know when you want me to light the signal."
"Do me a favor and don't let any of those filthy harpies get too close. I'd hate to get carried off because I was busy concentrating on making this ridiculously easy strike.
Speaking of which, let me know when you want me to loose my arrow."
Loose your arrow!

Again, Eveli hits the mark:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Two aeries destroyed, no problem! Now let's find the Breton alchemist."

Speak to her before leaving:

"I have to admit, those Orc catapulteers can certainly hit a mark!
Now all we need to do is find this alchemist. The Orcs want him inside the fort so he can locate the source of those briarheart warriors."
Any idea where we can find the alchemist?
"Beats me. The squad escorting the alchemist was supposed to find a way into the fortress proper.
Sorry I can't give you better directions, but I never was good at making or reading a map."
Nice bow work, by the way.
"You really think so? Thanks! I'm kind of proud of my placement.
I'm just glad I was able to contribute to the cause."
What are you going to do now?
"Help you finish this, of course! That's what heroes do, am I right?
I'll just wait a moment and catch my breath, then I'll be right behind you!"

Arrive at the fortress keep entrance and Eveli will be waiting:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Oh good, you found him!"
"The rest of the Orc soldiers went back to the camp to report in and get new orders. I don't think they actually expected you to find the alchemist.
I guess the joke's on them, huh?"

Inside, Alinon will take the lead:

Alinon the Alchemist: "Come, come, follow me. If my suspicions are correct, we shouldn't have any trouble finding what I'm looking for."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "We're all going to die down here, aren't we?"
"I think the alchemist found something. As much as I like the attention, you'll probably learn more if you talk to him."

Speak to Alinon and he'll give you a task but ask that Eveli stay and protect him.

"Don't worry. I won't let anything happen to the alchemist. I promise."
You sure you're up to this?
"Am I sure? No, not in the least. But I figure you've got enough to deal with without worrying about me and Alinon.
Besides, once you really get going, this whole place will be too busy to bother with little old me."
I'll be back as soon as I can.
"Do what you need to do and try not to die. We'll be all right.
We need to destroy those briar hearts, one way or another. Then we can gloat about how we accomplished what an army of Orcs couldn't do. It'll be grand!"

Return to where you left Alinon and Eveli, only to find Eveli... alone:

"So … I don't suppose you … maybe … might have seen Alinon … on your way back. Maybe?"
What happened to Alinon?
"Listen, it wasn't my fault.
Alinon sent me to get him some moss that grows on the walls down here. When I got back, the alchemist was gone."
We have to find the alchemist.
"Right! That's an excellent plan!
But you should take this. Alinon said it was the last ingredient he needed to finish his elixir. I don't see his alchemy bag, so he must have the rest of the components with him … if the tree hasn't eaten him yet."
The tree ate Alinon?
"What? No, of course not. At least, I don't think it ate him.
But he told me that the Winterborn plant briar heart seeds in dead bodies. The seed eats the body, sprouts roots, and nourishes the tree. Or something like that. I wasn't really listening."
You have no idea where we should go to look for him?
"Well, I went that way to gather the moss, so he must have gone the other way. Probably turned right at the bend ahead.
Let's split up. We can cover more ground that way. Besides, I kind of feel it's my fault, since I left him alone and all that."
"You go that way and I'll go this way. The alchemist has to be around here somewhere!
As long as he's got his alchemy bag and that moss, everything will turn out fine."

Locate Alinon in his roasting cage and Eveli will catch up:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "There you are! I was looking all over for—hey, how'd Alinon get up there? That doesn't look very safe."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "We should get him out of there before he cooks, right?"
"I'm not one hundred percent certain, but I bet I could break the chain holding up the cage with a few well-placed arrows."
You help Alinon. I need to go find his elixir.
"Sure, sure. Don't worry. I've got this!
You don't suppose the cage will shatter on impact, do you?"
Just make sure Alinon doesn't get hurt, all right?
"No worries. I never hit anything I'm not aiming at. Well, except for that one time. But that totally doesn't count. I told Bomfor not to move!
Go on. I'll take good care of the alchemist."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Hey, Alinon! I need you to stay very, very still so I can get you down!"
Alinon the Alchemist: "With a bow and arrow? The cage will drop into the fire—with me inside!"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Just make sure you tuck and roll!"

Outside, Alinon will play down the whole ordeal:

Alinon the Alchemist: "I just need to catch my breath. I'll be fine."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "They tried to roast you! That's not how we define fine where I come from!"
Alinon the Alchemist: "Compared to some of my adventures, this was practically a day at the fair!"
"The alchemist was almost roasted alive and he's not even remotely distressed about it. No concern for my feelings at all.
Did he thank me for rescuing him? No. Does he show even a little gratitude? Not one bit!"

Speak to her before leaving and she'll say:

"Another mission accomplished! We make a pretty good team, don't we?
If you need my help again, just whistle. I'm always ready for another adventure!"

A King-Sized Problem[edit]

Finish speaking to Captain Zugnor and you'll hear a familiar voice:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Hey Hero! Over here!"
"The king sent you here to rescue the hostages, didn't he? Of course he did. That's why they recruited heroes, after all, am I right?
Listen, I have a plan. It's brilliant! Want to hear it?"
All right. Tell me what you're thinking.
"See those horkers behind me? Don't look! Anyway, they've been acting suspiciously. Standing around, making shifty eyes, showing odd hand gestures to passers-by.
I've read enough Investigator Vale books to recognize criminal behavior when I see it!"
Who's Investigator Vale?
"You never read Investigator Vale? The books about the brilliant scholar who travels the world and solves crimes? She doesn't use magic or weapons. Just her charm and her wits and—
Look, I'll lend you a copy later, but we need to focus here!"
You think those two are involved with the fanatics?
"Isn't it obvious? Look at their evil demeanor, their villainous whispering. I bet if we rattle them, they'll run off and lead us right to the hostages!
Watch. I'll just let loose an arrow. That should put the fear of Y'ffre into the survivor!"
You can't just shoot someone because you think they might be evil!
"Of course I can. I do it all the time. And I'll have you know that I'm right about fifty percent of the time!
Fine, fine, we'll do things your way. But I'm going to keep an eye on those two."
Speak to her again:
"Fine. Do things your way. Nobody ever believes the cute Wood Elf.
I'm going to stay here and watch those two, anyway. They're up to something. I'm sure of it!"
I see what you mean. Go ahead and let's see what happens.
"Really? I mean, yes! I knew I liked you for a reason!
Once the other one starts to run, don't let him out of your sight. He should lead you right to the hostages."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "On my mark …."
<Eveli shouts to the crowd>
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Stop, you … thief!"
<Eveli shoots one of the Orcs>
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "And there goes the other one. Get him!"

To Save a Chief[edit]

After finishing your business with King Kurog during In the Name of the King, your favorite bosmer will hail you as you leave The King's Cornerclub:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Hello! I've been looking all over the city for you!"
"I had the hardest time finding you. Looked all over the city, even got lost once or twice.
I did find an adorable sweets shop, though. They had these wonderful tiny cakes that were absolutely delicious! Who knew Orc cakes could taste so good?"
Did you need something specific?
"Right to business, huh? Not even a 'Hi, good to see you?' Fine, fine.
Anyway, High Priestess Solgra needs our help. She wants us to work together on this. When you have a moment, you need to go see her."
Any idea what the high priestess wants us to do?
"It's a rescue mission! But she said she wants to give you the details personally. After all, you did save her life.
I can see it now. 'Oh, my savior! Let's retire to my private chambers so I can share the intimate details with you!'"
I'll go talk to High Priestess Solgra.
"Seriously, Solgra wants to keep this quiet. Said the situation was sensitive. She especially doesn't want the king to know. When I suggested asking the king for help, she insisted that that would only get more people killed.
Just so you know."
King Kurog doesn't know about this?
"No. Doesn't have a clue. That's what makes it so exciting!
This is an honest-to-goodness secret mission! I always wanted to go on a secret mission! Besides, once you talk to Solgra, you'll understand. She explains things much better than I do."
How'd you get involved with High Priestess Solgra?
"Have you seen my bow skills? I'm sure Solgra noticed and said to herself, 'That's a fine young lass! She can put a shaft through an apple balanced on the back of a moving wamasu. I shall recruit her!'
Either that or she was desperate for some help."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I'll meet up with you later! Go see Solgra but don't take too long!"

Meet Solgra at the Temple of Ire and she'll send you on a desperate mission to rescue an unknown clan chief at Fharun Stronghold. When you arrive you'll notice some familiar bosmer arrows. Follow the trail and you'll hear that familiar voice:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "You made it! Excellent!"
"You found me! I knew you could do it.
Did you like the trail I left for you? It was easy. Hide, release an arrow, move forward, repeat! And I was able to stay hidden the whole way."
Sounds like you've got this hero thing figured out now.
"Well, mostly. I did almost get caught that last time. Scared the leaves off my tree, if you catch my meaning. I dove down here to hide and wait for you to arrive.
Worked a lot better in my head, truth be told."
Did you learn anything about what's going on here?
"I found out that the stronghold contains a large prison of some sort, but I have no idea where they hid the thing. Nothing around here looks like a prison to me.
Oh, I did hear something else while I was sorting my arrows and waiting for you."
What did you hear?
"A couple of Vosh Rakhs were arguing. One of them stormed off toward the overlook. He sounded pretty upset with the cult. We might be able to get the prison's location out of him.
Or, you know, he could alert the entire stronghold to our presence."
Any other ideas about how we locate this prison?
"The cultists talk. A lot. We might be able to eavesdrop on them and hear something useful. Or we can search the buildings and hope for the best.
Either way, let's split up. We can meet back up after one of us finds something."
I'll see what I can find out.
"If you discover anything useful, meet me behind the great hall.
And try not to raise any alarms. The longer we can keep the Vosh Rakh from discovering our presence, the less likely they are to start slaughtering any prisoners."
Any thoughts about the Vosh Rakh?
"Now that you mention it, the Vosh Rakh seem pretty well equipped for a deranged cult. I've seen armies that didn't have some of the equipment they're using.
You think one of the alliances might be funding these extremists?"
To harm a member of the Daggerfall Covenant? It's certainly possible.
"For as much as I crave adventure, I hate war. My clan refused to get involved in all that. Never wanted to bow to a High Elf queen who looked down upon our customs.
What can I say? I come from stubborn stock."

Find out the location of the prison then find Eveli:

"Did you learn anything about the prison? I gathered some interesting information, but nothing that helps us at this exact moment."
The prison is underground.
"Underground? Like in a dungeon or something?
I hope you don't expect me to grab a shovel and start digging. I don't do that sort of thing."
There's a well that leads to the prison. We just need a way to climb down.

If you got the information from Quan, she'll say:

"Then this must be our lucky day! Not only have we avoided detection, but I found this rope in the barracks while I was looking around.
It should be long enough to reach to the bottom of the well."
Good idea. Let's go.
"Follow me. I'll secure the rope and drop it into the well.
Just be careful down there. Who knows what kind of monstrosities live at the bottom of an Orc well."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Come on, the well is this way!"


"A well? Yeah, I saw the old well. We'll need a rope or something to climb down, though.
Check near the forge. I noticed tools and ropes hanging around. One of those ropes should serve our needs."
I'll find a rope and be right back.
"You can get a rope over by the forge. I'll wait here. Less chance of getting spotted if only one of us goes traipsing around the stronghold.
Just between us, I'd rather climb down than jump into a deep, dark hole, wouldn't you?"
<Get a rope>
"I'm glad you're back. It's starting to get cold out here!
Well, colder, really. I'm not sure how the Orcs and the Nords stand it. Did you find a rope? Was it right where I said it would be?"
I found a coil of rope.
"I knew you could do it!
Follow me. I'll secure the rope and drop it into the well."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Come on, the well is this way!"

Either way, follow her to the well:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I'll hang back and look around up here a little more while you head into the prison."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "All right, the rope is secure! Good luck down there. Hope you find the prison and not some nasty sewer or something."
"Go ahead. Climb down and do what you do best. I'm going to look around up here a little more. I'll catch up with you later.
Just remember, you're looking for an Orc chief, so keep your eyes open down there."

Escape the prison with none other than Chief Bazrag. While you were trying to negotiate with Bazrag, you'll notice Eveli sneaking up and aiming her loaded bow at the chiefs head:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Chief Bazrag, lower your weapon. Please. I don't want to loose this arrow, but I will if you don't stand down."
Chief Bazrag: "Damn it, Wood Elf! Fine. But you might as well put that arrow in my heart, because I won't let you turn me over to Kurog."

Speak to Eveli and she'll keep her arrow trained on the Orc:

"So now what? I've never taken an Orc chief prisoner before."
I'm not sure. He refuses to go see Kurog.
"I guess we could take him to High Priestess Solgra. She did send us to save him, after all.
I'm sure I can sneak him into the city, as long as he cooperates and doesn't do anything stupid or anything."
You escort Chief Bazrag to High Priestess Solgra and I'll meet you there.
"All right, then. We've got a plan! And it's a perfectly good plan. Really.
Other than me trying to sneak the chief into a city where Kurog has eyes and ears everywhere. What was I thinking? And how are we going to convince the chief to come with me?"
The chief suggested I talk to someone. I'll do that and you'll keep him out of Kurog's hands.
"Right. Sneak Bazrag into Orsinium and get him to Solgra. Easy as boar-knuckles pie!
Why do I have a feeling this trip back is going to get … complicated?"
You'll do fine.

The chief will interrupt:

Chief Bazrag: "You can put the bow down, Elf. I'll go with you as long as you promise not to turn me over to Kurog."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Sorry, no. I'm keeping the bow. But I promise not to take you to Kurog."
Chief Bazrag: "Fine. Just watch where you're pointing that thing."

Speak to her before leaving:

"Don't worry. Chief Bazrag gave us his word, so I'll get him to the high priestess. We'll sneak into Orsinium and no one will even know we're there.
When you reach the city, come find me. There's something not right here and it's making me nervous."

The Anger of a King[edit]

Decipher Eveli's cryptic message and you'll find her with a small contingent of Orsinium movers and shakers:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "We can't just walk into the Vosh Rakh base. That's suicide!"
High Priestess Solgra: "We have to find out what the Vosh Rakh have planned. If we wait for them to strike, it will be too late."
Chief Bazrag: "Whatever they're planning, it's going to happen soon. They just about told me as much when they threw me into my own prison!"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Maybe we should have left you in there. For all we know, you deserve to be in prison!"
Chief Bazrag: "Listen to me, Elf. I didn't attack anyone. I left Orsinium and they ambushed me."
High Priestess Solgra: "I sent you to rescue the chief, Eveli. I wouldn't have done that if I believed he was guilty."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "You lied to us, high priestess! You knew who you were sending us to rescue the entire time! This feels like one giant trap and we walked right into it."
High Priestess Solgra: "Ah, you found us. I'm sorry that Eveli is upset, but I did what had to be done. Please, let's talk."

Eveli will leave the room in disgust.

"High Priestess Solgra wants to talk to you. Better not keep the lying liar who lies waiting."

Speak to Solgra and she'll ask that you convince Eveli to help you once again. Go upstairs and the elf will be all arms-crossed and in no mood:

"I hate this situation, I really do.
Being a hero, that's supposed to be pure and honest. Good is good and evil is evil, you know what I mean? But nothing here is clear cut. I can't tell the good guys from the bad."
If it was easy, everyone would be a hero.
"I'm not even sure whose side I'm on anymore. When Bazrag and I sneaked into the city, two guards got lucky and happened to be in the right place at the right time. They attacked.
I … I … I just reacted and let my arrows fly."
You defended yourself and your charge.
"But I killed two guards who were just doing their job! They probably have loved ones, pets ….
I … I don't know if I can do this anymore."
You have to do what's right for you, but I could certainly use your help.
"I knew you were going to say that. Still, I'm not sure I can get past Solgra's lies. She tricked us into helping Chief Bazrag—and I'm still not sure about his role in all this!
All right. You can count on me. But I'm doing this for you, not them."
Come to Paragon's Remembrance. I need someone I can trust with us.
"I can do that. Besides, it'll be nice to get out of a city. Try to forget about the price on my head for a while.
All right, let's do this. But be careful out there, will you? I can't afford to lose the only person I really trust."
Everything worked out, so stop your whining.
"I killed two guards! They were just doing their job! They probably have loved ones, pets ….
How can you be so heartless?"
How can you be so gullible? Look, are you going to help me or not?
"You can be a bastard sometimes, you know that? First Solgra's lies, tricking us into helping Chief Bazrag, now this?
All right. I'll help you. But I'm not doing this for you. I'm doing it because someone has to."
Then come to Paragon's Remembrance. I need someone I can trust.
"I can do that. Besides, it'll be nice to get out of a city. Try to forget about the price on my head for a while.
All right, let's do this. But be careful out there, will you? I can't afford to lose the only person I really trust."

Speak to her again and she'll add:

"I'll head out as soon as it's safe. I know how to avoid the guard patrols.
Let's determine what the Vosh Rakh are planning so we can stop them. Maybe that'll make me feel better about all the lies and deceit."

Paragon's Remembrance[edit]

Make your way to Paragon's Remembrance and you'll find her along with Talviah and Flies-In-Wind:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "The entrance has to be somewhere in those hills."
Talviah Aliaria: "It's certainly well hidden. If Bazrag lied to us, then we're probably about to meet with horrible, horrible deaths."

Speak to her:

"I've got good news, disappointing news, and downright awful news.
The good, Bazrag's instructions were easy to follow. The disappointing, I have no idea how to find the entrance and there's no way to get inside without being attacked once we do."
So what's the downright awful news?
"I lost a bet with Talviah and now I owe him a traditional Valenwood dinner. You know, the kind Wood Elves like to eat.
I can't wait to see the look on his face when he realizes what kind of meat he's eating. It'll be priceless!"
You sound like your old self again.
"Yeah, I guess I just needed to get out of the city. I was seriously depressed when I wound up on the king's most wanted list.
Thanks for pushing me. Infiltrating a cult is certainly better than hiding in a hole someplace."
This is no time to make jokes.
"Right, sorry. Scary cult needs to be infiltrated. Wouldn't want to try to get you to crack a smile or anything.
It just feels good to be doing something and not hiding from the king's guard, that's all."
So how do we get inside?
"Well, with all the runners we spotted, we know we're in the right place. We just need a way to get inside without being noticed.
You know, we might be able to do something with those higher-ranking cultists in the fancy masks."
A disguise is a good idea. Seen any of those cultists recently?
"Well, a few of the masked cultists passed this way a little while ago. Then we heard a large commotion over there to the west.
I can't be sure, mind you, but I think those Vosh Rakh might have … well, they could have walked into an … um …."
Just tell me what happened.
"Talviah thinks … well … he thinks that the group might have walked into an echatere mating ritual. The sounds from the west, the screams. Y'ffre's bow, the noise was horrible!
Then it got real quiet. I don't think it went well for the cultists."
I'll go see if I can find something we can use.
"Just don't get too close to those echateres. I heard they become extremely violent when anything interrupts their … frolicking.
We'll look around on our own and meet you inside. Good luck!"
"West. That's where all the noise came from.
Not sure what happened to the cultists, but it probably won't be pretty. Still, it's one of our best chances for finding a disguise. We'll look around, too, and meet you inside the ruins."

Make your way inside the fortress and you'll find the group already in disquise:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "This illusion is so weird. It looks like I'm wearing robes, but I feel so … unencumbered."
Flies-In-Wind: "This is like the time I licked one of our great hists. I feel so … exposed."
Talviah Aliaria: "It's merely an illusion bound to the amulet. Nothing to be concerned about. I've seen these used at festivals and grand balls back home."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I wonder if they come in different colors?"

Speak to her:

"Looks like you found an amulet, too. But tell me, was I right? Did the echateres get all frolicsome on those cultists?
Wait a moment. Your amulet's cracked. You weren't supposed to break it, you know."
It was broken when I found it. The echateres weren't particularly careful with the cultists.
"Well, the illusion seems to be holding up, at least for now. Hopefully it won't fail at a particularly critical moment.
Anyway, I think we should split up and cover more ground. That's the best way to find what we're looking for quickly."
Are you sure splitting the party is a good idea?
"This place is enormous! Besides, you never put all your acorns in one basket.
We need to find out what the Vosh Rakh are up to and fast. Flies and I will look around out here, while you and Tal see what the high-ranking cultists are meeting about."
Let's rendezvous back here after we find something.
"Good idea! And let's not to take too long. Lives are depending on us!
And speaking of lives, make sure Tal stays safe, will you? He isn't as experienced as we are. I'm afraid his wide-eyed enthusiasm is going to get him injured."
Isn't that like the leaf calling the tree green?
"Ha, ha. Tease me all you want, but I know better now. Sort of.
As long as you're here though, I know you'll watch out for us. You're surprisingly good at that sort of thing."
I will. You be careful, too.
<Ends conversation>

As she and the Argonian leave, she'll say:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Stay safe! Flies and I will meet up with you later."

Enter the fortress and go through the ceremonies. Return to the entry and Eveli and Flies-In-Wind will be waiting for you.

"There you are! I was beginning to get worried about you. We've found out some ….
Where's Talviah?"

At this point, the storyline takes two different paths. One path happens if Talviah Aliaria was spared. The other if Talviah Aliaria was sacrificed.

If you killed Talviah:
If you killed the Vosh Rakh Council:
He didn't make it.
"What … what do you mean he didn't make it? What aren't you telling me?"
I was forced to take his life to get the information we needed.
"You … you did what? What kind of person does something like that? He … he looked up to you. Like all of us did!
You're a monster."
That information will save a lot of lives, including the chiefs at the moot.
"Does that justify what you've done? Does that make you feel better?
I thought Bazrag was bad. That Solgra betrayed us. But you … you're worse than either of them. Would you sacrifice me, too? No … don't answer that."
I did what was necessary. Now you have to warn Bazrag and Solgra. They're in danger.
"Orders? You're giving me orders?
Fine. Tell me what you learned and I'll be happy to put this awful place behind me. This awful place … and you."
He sacrificed himself for us.
"Why … why didn't you protect him? I told you to keep Tal safe! I trusted you!"
Talviah died so I could get the information we need. They're going to attack the moot.
"That's it? That's your answer? He died because we needed him to?
I really wanted to be like you. I looked up to you. But if this is what it means to be a hero, you can count me out."
Now isn't the time for this. I need you to warn Solgra and Bazrag. They're in danger.
"Orders? You're giving me orders?
Fine. Tell me what you learned so I can get out of here. I want to make sure nobody else has to die today."
I'm sorry for all of this.
"I don't know exactly what happened in there and I don't want to know. Not right now. I just can't handle it.
Just tell me what I need to know so I can go."
They're going to take Bazrag at the inn and claim that Solgra leads the Vosh Rakh.
"The Vosh Rakh are strong enough to do all that? It's even worse than we feared. You tell the king about the moot. We'll go warn Bazrag and Solgra.
After that, I'm leaving. I don't want to be in a place where the only person I can depend on is me."

If you speak to her after the quest, she'll say:

"I know what you want me to do. I'll warn Bazrag and Solgra. Now leave me alone, all right? I don't want to look at you right now."
Talviah's fine. He's keeping the Vosh Rakh busy so we can go warn the city.
"All by himself? Are you sure he can handle that? What am I saying, of course you're sure!
We managed to find out that the attack on the temple was a ruse perpetrated by the Vosh Rakh. That was right before our amulets stopped working."
We lost our amulets, too.
"Yeah, I was suddenly as naked as an ash tree that had lost its last leaf of the season. Good thing we stashed our gear nearby!
Anyway, the temple attack was all to place the blame on Bazrag. The chief is innocent. I didn't help a murderer!"
I learned that the Vosh Rakh are hiding in the city. They're going to attack the chiefs at the moot.
"That's something, but not enough to provide the edge we were hoping for.
We'll just have to be careful. Anyone could be working with the Vosh Rakh. I don't know about you, but all this intrigue is starting to make my head hurt."
Return to Orsinium and warn Chief Bazrag. I'll meet you there shortly.
"Flies and I will go warn Chief Bazrag. This whole thing … it's stranger even than any Investigator Vale story I've ever read.
Here, take this. I found it and thought you should have it. For protecting Tal. I appreciate that."

If you speak to her after the quest, she says:

"Flies and I will sneak out of here and go warn Chief Bazrag. We'll see you back in the city!"

The King's Gambit[edit]

Talviah Aliaria spared[edit]

Rescue Eveli and Bazrag from the dungeons:

"About time you showed up!
Hey, where's Owayine? No, don't tell me. I already know."

After speaking to Bazrag, she'll say:

"I'll make sure Chief Bazrag gets out of here safely. Don't worry, you can count on me!
But I can't believe what you said about the king. That's some rotten acorns, that's for sure."

Find out where the moot is and meet up with Eveli and Bazrag outside the keep:

"I hope you had better luck than we did. All of the chief's contacts have disappeared faster than rabbit meatballs at a Nord banquet!"

Finish speaking to Bazrag and Eveli will have vanished.

Talviah Aliaria sacrificed[edit]

Inside The Greedy Gut, you'll find Eveli and Bazrag upstairs dispatching the last of the Disguised Vosh Rakh:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Keep your head down!"
Chief Bazrag: "This is the best Kurog has to send against us? Pitiful!"
"There you are! You missed all the fun."
I heard you got here just in time.
"I guess you could say that. I got here before the soldiers arrived, if that's what you mean.
lose. But we handled it. We handled it real good!"

After speaking to Chief Bazrag, she'll cheerfully say:

"You go warn the king. Don't worry, I'll keep the high priestess safe. You can count on me."

Blood on a King's Hands[edit]

Talviah Aliaria spared[edit]

After dealing with Vumnish, return to the temple. Inside you'll hear:

Priest Uugus: "They were soldiers! Trying to stop them would have only put us all in danger!"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "You could have done something! You're cowards! All of you!"
Chief Bazrag: "Eveli, enough! Solgra's gone. More priests getting killed wouldn't have changed that."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I should have been here … to save her."

Speak to her before speaking to Bazrag:

"If this is what it means to be a hero, I'm pretty sure I'm done with that dream.
I've had enough of death, of seeing my friends get hurt. Kurog. He's going to pay for this. I swear on my mother's bow, he's going to pay."

After speaking to him, Bazrag will turn to the body of Solgra:

Chief Bazrag: "May Trinimac take you to your final reward, high priestess."
Priest Uugus: "Chief Bazrag! I thought you were a firm believer in Malacath?"
Chief Bazrag: "There's no place for a gentle soul in the Ashen Forge, priest. So why not let Trinimac have her?"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Goodbye, my friend. I'm going to miss you."

Speak to her before leaving:

"I guess I've got one more battle in me. For Solgra, right?
Damn, I hate how this turned out!"

Inside the Temple Library:

Chief Bazrag: "Look at this mess! We'll never find anything in here! Look around and see if you can find something that looks like a hidden passage."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I'll check over here."

Eveli will start searching the bookcases:

"I love books! I wonder if they have any copies of Investigator Vale in here?
Anyway, I'll look around over here."

Solve the switch puzzle and open the passageway:

Chief Bazrag: "Well, I'll be a puny Dark Elf! You found it! I guess we're climbing down that hole."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I knew you could do it! Now let's go stop the king."
"An honest-to-goodness secret passage.
If I wasn't terrified, this would be kind of exciting."

Continue through the tunnel taking out Vosh Rakh, and you'll continue to hear Kurog speaking to the chiefs as well as your companions commenting on the situation:

King Kurog: "You isolate yourselves in your own strongholds, perpetuating our selfish nature. We must change who and what we are!"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Kurog's got a point. We're still going to kill the bastard, right."
King Kurog: "I tried to appeal to you as equals, but you refused to listen. I grow tired of arguing with you."
Forge-Mother Alga: "The king cares for our people and all you do is break his heart."
Chief Bazrag: "Wonderful. The murderous king and his lunatic mother. This will be interesting."
Chief Bazrag: "We're getting close. Be ready for anything."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Sounds like the time I walked in on an Imga courting ritual!"
King Kurog: "The choice is simple. Kneel before me as your king and ruler of the united Orsimer nation—or die!"
Chief Bazrag: "We need to move faster. Kurog's about to start slaughtering the chiefs!"
Chief Bazrag: "Once we get inside, find Kurog and take him down. We need to save as many chiefs as we can."

Inside the Path to the Moot, Bazrag will open the gate:

Chief Bazrag: "There's still time if we move fast. We need to open this gate."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "There's no lever. They must have shut it from the other side."
Chief Bazrag: "Stand aside and let me work! Get ready to get those people out of there!"

Enter the moot and all becomes chaotic. Kurog and Alga attack you and the chiefs, Eveli tries to help, but Bazrag calls for her aide while Bazrag helps the chiefs escape.

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I'll take care of the archers!"
King Kurog: "Archers, eliminate the clan chiefs!"
Chief Ramash: "We've been betrayed! Defend yourselves!"
King Kurog: "And now the last guest has arrived. I'm going to make you pay for your disloyalty."
Chief Bazrag: "Eveli, I need you! Keep those Vosh Rakh bastards off of me!"
Chief Bazrag: "Clan chiefs, over here! Arrgh! Hurry, this gate is … heavier than it looks."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I'll go back and help Chief Bazrag. Don't get yourself killed without me!"

Eveli will be with Chief Ramash when you are ready to leave, but she cannot be spoken to.

Talviah Aliaria sacrificed[edit]

Priest Uugus will tell you that Eveli and High Priestess Solgra are on the roof of the temple. Race to join them and you'll witness to Vosh Rakh threatening the pair:

Vosh Rakh Archer: "There she is! Don't let the traitor get away!"
High Priestess Solgra: "Tell the king I'll play no part in his political games."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "I'm warning you. Back off or you'll feel the sting of my arrows!"

After dealing with the Vosh Rakh, she'll say:

"Am I glad to see you!
I was about to start putting arrows into the soldiers when you showed up. No way was I going to let them get close to the high priestess!"

Before Solgra can respond, you hear someone else:

Penitent Vumnish: "There she is! My arrow will find its mark!"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "More soldiers! Stay back, high priestess!"
<Penitent Vumnish fires an arrow, killing Eveli>
High Priestess Solgra: "Eveli, no! Find whoever did this! I'll get her back to the temple. Go!"
Penitent Vumnish: "Damn it! The interfering Wood Elf got in the way! Fall back!"

Long Live the King[edit]

At the behest of Bazrag, deliver an invitation to the funeral to her at the Temple of Ire:

"The high priestess used to study here. Read her books. Write her sermons.
Now she's gone, and it feels like I've got a hole the size of Elden Root right in the middle of my chest."
You're taking Solgra's death kind of hard.
"Damn right! We won, but the high priestess died. That's awful and it makes me so angry! It just isn't fair!
But you obviously came here for another reason. Sorry I got so emotional. What's up?"
Chief Bazrag wanted me to give this to you.
"A letter? Isn't that how all this trouble started in the first place?
But I guess I might as well see this through to the end. And you'll be there, right? Me and you, once more into the breach. Hopefully without anyone trying to kill us this time."
"I need a few more moments to clear my head.
I'll see you over at the keep before the funeral begins."

The Funeral[edit]

Make your way to the Castle Overlook:

"The high priestess … she looks so peaceful now. I think she'd appreciate all this attention."

After Bazrag's speech:

"That was a beautiful ceremony. So respectful and yet also inspiring. I particularly liked the fire. It was so … fiery!
And I'm glad they made Bazrag the king. I think he'll do a fine job for his people."

Back in the keep, you'll hear:

Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Thanks for the offer, but I … I can't. Not after everything that's happened."
King Bazrag: "I understand. Thank you for everything you've done, little Elf. I shall miss you."

Speak to her:

"You're leaving, too? I can't blame you. I really can't stay around here much longer. Not after everything that happened."
Are you doing all right?
"Not that well, all things considered. When I saw the high priestess's body, just lying on that slab ….
Look, I've got to get out of here. If I stick around, these feelings, these memories, they're never going to fade."
Did King Bazrag talk to you?
"Yeah. He wanted me to stay and help train the Orc archers. Even offered me my own squad and a fancy title.
But after everything that happened, I just need to get away so I can put this all behind me."
Where will you go?
"I'm not sure. I might return to Valenwood, see my family. I'm kind of missing my loved ones after what we've been through.
I wonder if Solgra had a family. She … never mentioned it."
I wanted to say goodbye.
"There's so much I want to tell you. To thank you for. I've learned so much from you. Out of everyone here, you're the one person I never lost faith in.
I wish I could just go and follow you around forever."
What's stopping you?
"Tempting, but I need to find my own way for a while.
But no matter where the wind blows, leaves from the same tree eventually find each other again. That'll be the same for us. You'll see."


  • Eveli's voice actor is Mary Faber (IMDb).
  • Eveli's character was written by Bill Slaviseck and Jason Barnes. Bill mentioned on ESO Live on 23rd June 2017 that Jason later named his daughter after the character (slightly different spelling, same sound).
