Canctunian Ponius

Canctunian Ponius is an Imperial noble and the Factor of the Ebonheart agency of the East Empire Company and the organization's Factor-in-Chief. He can be found at the Company Hall in the city. House Hlaalu has an interest in securing the ebony trade rights from the Company, and he is the man to talk to about it. He has also made a pledge to the Imperial Cult which he is unable to honor due to some money embezzled by a former clerk.

He wears an extravagant shirt, pants, shoes, and ring. Curiously enough, he has a good skooma pipe and five portions of moon sugar in his inventory, along with a maximum of 200 drakes. Aside from his natural charm and ability to absorb fatigue from others, he knows no spells.

Dialogue[edit]

  • Greetings:
  • "I am %Name, Factor-in-Chief of the Ebonheart agency of the East Empire Company, at your service."
  • "I am %Name, Factor-in-Chief of the Ebonheart agency of the East Empire Company, at your service. Is this concerning the generous pledge I offered to the Imperial cult?"

  • ebony trade:
  • "Unless House Hlaalu lowers prices, my hands are tied."
  • "Well, if you think you can make me a better offer..." (disposition must be at least 50)
  • "Okay, you convinced me. Go back and tell House Hlaalu that I will sign a contract for another year." (disposition must be at least 75)
  • "You already convinced me, you don't need to ask me again."

  • generous pledge:
  • "You are from the Imperial cult, then? I'll be frank with you, but you must keep this in confidence. I cannot redeem my pledge at this time. Our clerk embezzled funds, and to avoid scandal, I am covering losses to the East Empire Company out of my own fortune."
  • Offer to track down the clerk and recover the gold.: "That is a most welcome offer. Our clerk, an Altmer named Mossanon, absconded with 3000 drakes. We have no idea where he went. To avoid scandal, we have not reported the crime to the guards. If you can track this Mossanon down and recover the missing 3000 drakes, I would be more than happy to immediately redeem my generous pledge to the Imperial cult."
  • Thank him for his frankness and leave.: "Please accept my apologies. I wish things were otherwise."
  • "If you recover the embezzled funds from the absconded clerk, Mossanon, I'll be happy to redeem my generous pledge."
  • "Thank you for recovering our embezzled funds. And here are the 1000 drakes I pledged to support an Imperial cult mission to the Ashlanders."
  • "Thank you again for recovering our embezzled funds."
  • embezzled funds:
  • "Our clerk Mossanon took 3000 drakes in gold from our treasury. Since he kept all accountings, we didn't even suspect the gold was missing until he disappeared."
  • "Did you recover our missing 3000 drakes from Mossanon? Or have you come to report your failure?"
  • No. Here's 2000/1500/1000 drakes... all I could recover.: "A pity. But something is better than nothing. And what you have recovered will at least permit me to redeem my generous pledge to the Imperial cult."
  • I failed to find Mossanon and the missing gold.: "That's unfortunate. Then I'm sorry, but I cannot redeem my generous pledge to the Imperial cult."
  • Not yet. I'm still trying.: "Very well. Carry on. And good luck."
  • "Thank you for your help."
  • Mossanon:
  • "He was an excellent clerk, a proper High Elf, well-spoken, diligent, orderly, good with figures, reliable -- until recently. I believe we all noticed a change in his behavior, but thought nothing of it. In particular, we noticed a marked rise in his absences from the office. We have been reluctant to discuss the subject with the other employees, for obvious reasons. But perhaps, if you are discreet, and persuasive, you may learn something from speaking with them."
  • "Have you found Mossanon? Or have you come to report your failure?"
  • I found him, but I won't say where.: "I understand. Discretion may be essential to obtain the cooperation of the parties in affairs like this."
  • I found him in Sadrith Mora living with a Telvanni Woman.: "Good. If we decide to report this matter to the authorities, I will pass this information on to the guards."
  • I failed to find Mossanon and the missing gold.: "That's unfortunate. Then I'm sorry, but I cannot redeem my generous pledge to the Imperial cult."
  • Not yet. I'm still trying.: "Very well. Carry on. And good luck."
  • "The Mossanon matter is closed."
  • Nalvilie Saren: "I haven't heard that name in years... I have many fond memories of her, but I don't know where she is now."
