Caldien is an Altmer member of the Mages Guild found on the island of Stirk, overseeing the meeting between the alliance leaders alongside Vanus Galerion and Countess Hakruba. He will announce the arrivals of the leaders and the start of the discussions. When the negotiations are over, Molag Bal arrives by possessing Caldien, then addresses the resistance coalition. Bal proceeds to summon Daedra to attack the resistance before leaving, and Caldien falls dead afterwards.

Once you arrive at the meeting point, Caldien will start to announce the leaders as they arrive.

Caldien: "High King Emeric of the Daggerfall Covenant."
<High King Emeric walks to the center.>
Caldien: "Queen Ayrenn of the Aldmeri Dominion."
<Queen Ayreen arrives.>
Caldien: "Jorunn Skald-King of the Ebonheart Pact."
<Skald-King Jorunn takes his place.>

After the talks breakdown and you confer with Vanus, Caldien will cry out and fall to the ground in pain.

Caldien: "He... he has arrived! I can't..."
<Vanus runs up to him.>
Vanus Galerion: "Caldien! What's happening?"
Caldien: "Go! Get away from me! Run!"
Molag Bal possessing Caldien

A blindingly bright light appears, and Molag Bal is then seen using Caldien as a mouthpiece:

Molag Bal: "These are the great leaders of Tamriel? Pathetic. But how convenient to have them gathered together in one place, so I can crush them like insects."
<Countes Hakruba rushes at the Daedric Prince.>
Countess Hakruba: "Molag Bal!"
Vanus Galerion: "Stay back, Countess!"
Molag Bal: "The insects fight back! How amusing, and yet so very sad.
All of Nirn shall be mine!"

Bal then summons forces of Daedra and leaves and Caldien corpse falls to the ground. Countess Hakruba and Vanus immediately rally.

Countess Hakruba: "Protect the leaders! Defeat Molag Bal's minions and close the unstable rifts!"
Vanus Galerion: "I'll do what I can to keep any more rifts from opening. Countess, defend me!"
Countess Hakruba: "My pleasure, Vanus. Who said the Guilds can't work together?"
