Gildan is a Wood Elf nightblade who offers both medium training and spells in the schools of Alteration, Illusion, and Mysticism. She is a member of the Blades, and one of the Blades Trainers that Caius Cosades will recommend to you. If you ask her about it, she'll recommend purchasing some poisoned blades from Wayn in the Balmora Fighters Guild. She will only offer you services if you are also a member of the Blades. She has a house in Ald'ruhn.

Regarding Blades business, she keeps an eye on House Redoran's relations with the other two Houses. The conflict with House Hlaalu is mostly about the mining operations near Caldera, overviewed by Surane Leoriane. The conflict with House Telvanni is about rogue Telvanni mages unlawfully setting up bases all over Vvardenfell. This relation is more easily observed as Redoran council meetings are public. Redorans openly fund and support strikes against the rogue Telvanni bases. She keeps the Legion informed about both of these and does little to act. She also says that "either one of those conflicts could flare into open war".

Related Quests[edit]


  • Blades:
    • "I'm a Blade, too, and I report to Caius, like you. You're welcome to use my bed to rest, but leave my other stuff alone, please."
    • "Yes, we heard Caius had been recalled. He said we'd still be forwarding our reports to him. I think he thought what you're doing is important -- whatever it is -- he didn't tell us -- and we weren't supposed to bother you." (after starting Mehra Milo and the Lost Prophecies)
  • Blades Trainers:
    • "Yes, I offer training, but only to Blades."
    • "Certainly I offer basic training at low prices to colleagues. But even at my low prices, advanced training isn't cheap. Sorry, but that's the way it is. Look. Can I make a suggestion? Go see Wayn at the Balmora Guild of Fighters. Know what a jink blade is? It has a Paralyze enchantment. And a spider blade has a Poison enchantment. They're not considered honorable weapons, and most smiths don't sell them. But they sure come in handy."
  • Caius Cosades:
    • "He's okay. Sour. A worrier. But he knows his job, and leaves us alone to do ours."
    • "We hear he's gone back to the City. But he'll be back. Our reports still go through the courier as usual." (after starting Mehra Milo and the Lost Prophecies)
  • latest rumors: "I keep tabs on Redoran's conflicts with Hlaalu and Telvanni. It's fairly easy. The Redoran Council is public and above-board, and they openly fund and support strikes against the rogue Telvanni bases. The dispute over Caldera with Hlaalu is more subtle. Redoran feels it should jurisdiction over the ebony mines, but Hlaalu and the Caldera Mining Company out-maneuvered them. Either one of those conflicts could flare into open war. Little we can do about it, but keep the Legion informed." (if a member of the Blades)
  • rules: "The rules for the Blades are simple. Follow orders. Don't steal from the Blades. Don't attack anyone from the Blades. Simple rules. Follow them, or you'll be expelled. And once you're expelled, you're out forever."
  • Sixth House:
    • "Haven't heard anything about them, other than vague rumors. But something is different around here recently. There're always people with secrets around here -- mostly smugglers, criminal syndicates, Daedric cults, other such -- but lately everyone seems to be a little uneasy, like maybe there's a new player, and nobody knows much about him, and nobody wants to get caught with their guard down."
    • "We've heard. It sounds serious. We're glad you're on the case." (after Sixth House Base)
