|Location||Elden Hollow I|
The Thalmor Gavel
Mages Guild (formerly)
Canonreeve Oraneth is a disgruntled Altmer member of the Thalmor. She is extremely unhappy with the number of Altmer dying on behalf of the Aldmeri Dominion in the Alliance War. As her proposal to abdicate the Altmer from the Dominion was strongly opposed, Oraneth started to search for other means to save her people. She has now come to the point where she is prepared to do something that might make her an enemy of her own people in order to end the war.
She is also a former member of the Mages Guild, but quit to take up a career in politics as she found manipulating people and policy to be more satisfying. After becoming frustrated with the amount of Altmer dying during the war, she started working on a secret project to end the war swiftly.
The Mages Guild discovered her plans but not the exact nature of the ritual she planned to perform, so they sent three mages, Bakkhara, Dracien Montue, and Speaks-With-Lights, to look into the situation and stop her if they could. They arrived at Elden Hollow but were unable to make any progress because of the Thalmor. They ask for your help to kill the enemies within, and they will follow and disrupt the ritual. By the third altar you will find and have to defeat the Canonreeve, but she managed to progress the ritual enough to release the evil in the cave.
