The Despot of Markarth
- Emsold: "Sentry Bodfe sent word. The Gray Host is—"
- Ard Caddach: "I'll hear no more of this! Go! I want to talk to the outsider."
After this dialogue he will move away from Ard Caddach and will remain in other part of Understone Keep accompanied by Celennel.
He can be approached afterwards:
- "We've seen quite a few outsiders in here lately."
After the audience with Ard Caddach he can be spoken to again:
- "The Ard knows more than he leads on."
Blood of the Reach
After accepting the quest from Count Verandis Ravenwatch he can be interacted with again:
- "I'm not sure who you are, but you seem to have The Ard's ear."
