K'Tora is a powerful Sea Sload of the Abyssal Cabal who has created The Mind Trap and imprisoned you within it. He will send out warriors and yaghra to defeat you, and his eyes may be seen as he sends out the Yaghra Nightmare.

He is later encountered throughout the Summerset main quest, and can be heard during Abyssal Geyser battles.

K'Tora: "There is no escape. I will break you in time. Watch as I turn your own memories against you!"
K'Tora: "You can't escape my mind trap! I'll destroy you with your darkest fears!"

Approaching the Pearl:

K'Tora: "Not so fast, little worm! Let's see how you fare against this nightmare!"

A Pearl of Great Price[edit]

K'Tora appears in the Rellenthil Sinkhole, conspiring with a mysterious Altmer. They are then warned by Nedoril:

K'Tora: "Heed me, my creatures! Destroy the intruders!"
Valsirenn: "That young idiot! We need to get over there!"

Faction(s) Abyssal Cabal

When you enter the central rotunda of the Psijic Relic Vaults to find out who is behind the attack, K'Tora will appear at the pool in the middle of the room:

Ritemaster Iachesis: "K'Tora! I killed you! I remember our battle as clear as day!"
K'Tora: "You remember exactly what I want you to remember."
K'Tora: "And thanks to the Orbs of B'Raken Drel, your deepest memories will be mine!"
K'Tora: "Back, worm! This does not concern the likes of you." (You are pushed aside in a blinding ray of light)
Valsirenn: "Out here, quickly! We need to hurry if we're going to help the Ritemaster!"

He can be overheard when going through the Psijic Relic Vaults:

K'Tora: "Cease your struggles. Your memories belong to K'Tora now."
K'Tora: "I am as patient and enduring as the sea, worm. Now reveal the hiding place!"
K'Tora: "Your mind is my mind, Iachesis. Reveal your memories to me!"
K'Tora: "You can't resist forever. The Heart of Transparent Law will be mine!"

After entering K'Tora's Mindscape:

K'Tora: "You dare enter my domain, worm?"

Upon defeating Verdrangu, a vision of him and Clavicus Vile will appear:

K'Tora: "A bargain is a bargain. The island for the Heart of Transparent Law."
Clavicus Vile: "Yes, yes, just as we agreed. But only a portion of the crystal. We don't want to alert the Sapiarchs too soon."
K'Tora: "Tell your fellow Princes all will be well. The Ritemaster is no match for my mind magic."
Clavicus Vile: "So Nocturnal has assured me. Don't disappoint us, K'Tora."

Viewing the second memory, you will see K'Tora and a defeated Iachesis, whom K'Tora will use the Orbs of B'Raken Drel at the end of the vision:

K'Tora: "I lured you here for one purpose, worm."
Ritemaster Iachesis: "Your Abyssal Cabal may … defeat me … but you'll never stand against … the entire Psijic Order."
K'Tora: "Once again you fail to grasp the obvious. When the time is right, you will do exactly as I command. Until then, forget …."
Ritemaster Iachesis: "No, no … arrgh!"

When you defeat Dissonance, the third memory will play:

K'Tora: "Repeat my words, worm. Tell me what you must do."
Ritemaster Iachesis: "I will … enter the Crystal Tower. I will … take the Heart of Transparent Law."
K'Tora: "Yes, yes. Hide it away until I call for you to give it to me. Not even the Princes must know where it is."
Ritemaster Iachesis: "Hide … the Heart …."

Shortly after viewing the final memory, he will shout:

K'Tora: "My memory shields! You destroyed them!"

His consciousness is found at the top, where he lets go of Iachesis to fight you.

During combat, he can say:

K'Tora: "Feel the crushing weight of your own insignificance!"
K'Tora: "You fight well, but in this mindscape I reign supreme!"

After his consciousness is destroyed in the mindscape, his lifeless corpse can be seen in the pool in the Psijic Relic Vaults rotunda upon your return.

Whispers from the Deep[edit]

After gathering the second spell particle in Cainar's mind trap and you'll hear the sload's voice:

K'Tora: "The mage is caught in my mind trap, worm! Nothing you do will change that."

Abyssal Geysers[edit]

Before his death on Artaeum, K'Tora speaks at Abyssal Geysers before and after the final wave.

Generic Pre-Boss Dialogue
K'Tora: "Summerset is mine, land-crawlers!"
K'Tora: "K'Tora sees the fear inside you."
K'Tora: "You resist? How annoying!"
K'Tora: "The sea abides, and so do the Sload of Ul'vor-Kus!"
Destroying the Abyssal Pearl
K'Tora: "I weary of your misguided defiance."
K'Tora: "I'd be impressed, but this battle holds no significance."
K'Tora: "Land-crawling scum!"
K'Tora: "The best thing about yaghra? We have many, many more."
K'Tora: "You may have ended this geyser, but more are set to burst!"
K'Tora: "You stopped this geyser, but what about the others that are set to burst?"
K'Tora: "When next we meet, things will be different!"
