Socucius Ergalla, a Breton agent, is the chief agent of the Seyda Neen Census and Excise Office. In addition to helping you at the beginning of the game to select your character's class and determine which sign your character is born under, Socucius provides you with your release papers, which you must give to Sellus Gravius before you can leave. Socucius is also interested in the whereabouts of a missing tax collector, Processus Vitellius, and will offer medium training in Acrobatics, Light Armor, and Sneak.
He wears a common robe and shoes. He also carries a small amount of gold and a steel shardblade with him. Aside from his natural bonus and resistance to magicka, and his ability to shield himself for short periods, the only spell he knows is Crying Eye.
- "Ahh yes, we've been expecting you. You'll have to be recorded before you're officially released. There are a few ways we can do this, and the choice is yours."
- "Very good. The letter that preceded you mentioned you were born under a certain sign. And what would that be?"
- "Interesting. Now before I stamp these papers, make sure this information is correct."
- "Show your papers to the Captain when you exit to get your release fee."
- "Take your papers off the table and go see Captain Gravius."
- Imperial Legion: "The Imperial legion provides security for the Census and Excise Offices here in Seyda Neen. The troopers you see here are assigned to guard duty here. And the troopers outside, in Seyda Neen, they're guards -- officers of the law."
- Law in Morrowind: "Theft, Trespass, Assault, Foul Murder, and Contempt are serious crimes; criminals pay compensation or serve sentences of punitive labor. If you commit a crime, turn yourself in to any guard and pay your fine. Here in Seyda Neen the guards are all Imperial legion troopers. In other towns, they may be local Great House guards."
- Morrowind: "Yes. This is Morrowind. You're in the Census and Excise Offices in the port of Seyda Neen, in Vvardenfell District of the province of Morrowind."
- As with numerous other NPCs, Socucius' face is not included as a choice in character creation.
- With the rank of Agent, Ergalla is the highest-ranking Census and Excise employee in the game, as well as their only Breton staff member present in the game.
- Socucius Ergalla is an online moniker used by Ken Rolston in the past. Not surprisingly, this NPC bears a striking resemblance to Rolston himself.
