|Location||Along the side of the road south of Sandswirl Manor, east of Shadow Dance Ruins|
Arentus Rian is an Imperial who can be found during a random encounter along the side of the road throughout Northern Elsweyr. He is accompanied by Khishmina and Mulabus. Together, they are standing around their campfire.
- "Blast! I left the war and strife of Cyrodiil for the relative calm of Riverhold. But now Dragons? Dragons! Was I cursed as a child?"
- Are Dragons why you left Riverhold?
- "Isn't the answer obvious? I'm not going to wait around to become Dragon kibble.
This ragtag group has the right idea … stay far away from those monsters."
After The Battle for Riverhold, his dialogue will change:
- "Did you hear? They killed a Dragon in Riverhold! A Dragon!"
- Now that the Dragon is dead, are you going back to Riverhold?
- "You're jesting, right? I'll wait a bit longer.
I hope Dragons are like lightning and never strike the same place twice, but I also hoped that Riverhold would be safer than Cyrodiil. Look how that turned out."
