Nisswo Nedhellas

Nisswo Nedhellas is Bosmer nisswo who became a custodian of the Teeth Of Sithis. When Shuxaltsei and her Sun-Eaters invaded the temple, he was one of the few that survived their depredations. Nedhellas has a propensity for aggression and violence and his first instinct is often to "bash" people, which led to him being run out of Valenwood. At some point he came to the attention of the Dark Brotherhood, until he found his way to the Teeth of Sithis, where its caretakers took him in.

After rescuing him and his fellow priests, he can later be found in the The Lusty Argonian Footman in Lilmoth getting drunk.

Dialogue[edit]

Teeth of Sithis[edit]

Nisswo Nedhellas can be found tied up, on the upper level of the xanmeer's interior. When he is spoken to, Nedhellas is more than ready to attack you despite his perilous position.

"Can't get enough of this fine vintage, eh? Well, you're cut off! Come any closer and I'll bash your fangs in!"
Easy. I'm here to rescue you. Xode sent me.
"He got out? Slippery skink, that one. Well, what are you waiting for? Set me loose, so I can give these bloodsuckers a good thunk right in their pointy teeth!"
You're in no condition to pick a fight. Find Xode, he should be at the top of the western xanmeer. (When this is selected the conversation will end and he will run off.)

Once all the surviving prisoners have been rescued, Nisswo Nedhellas can be found on the western xanmeer where he can be asked questions about the temple's invaders and himself.

"This all of us? Huh.
No matter! Just more vampy faces for me to bash in …! Soon as my head stops spinning."
You believe your captors are vampires?
"Not all of them. Some are just slack-jawed, toady, blood bags. The ugly, scale-faced leech that's been bleeding us though? Has to be a vampire. Maybe worse."
Worse how?
"Most vampires you hear about only have two fangs, but that High Priestess of the Teeth's got a mouth like a bear trap.
I'll give her something to chew on next time I see her. Soon as I can lift it. You'll see."
Are you one of the custodians of the Teeth?
"What do you mean "am I one of the custodians"? Of course I am.
Oh, I get what you're driving at. Don't look scaly enough for the part. That's it, isn't it?"
I didn't expect to find a Wood Elf tending to an Argonian Temple. That's all.
"That's just being close minded. I've half a mind to bash you for that, but Xode says I'll be happier when I stop fighting my problems.
They've been good to me since I got here."
How did you come to be here?
"Run out of Valenwood. Got all these rules in the Dominion, especially against bashing stuff. Even when you're mad. Drifted around, until I bashed some knot-faced prowler skulking in my room."
And that brought you to Murkmire?
"Round about, yeah. Started getting strange letters from some warped-plank who signs letters by dipping their hand in ink. Dim, yeah? It's all Sithis this, Sithis that. Can't get away from it. Finally, I come out here. No letters. Coincidence?"

Once you have killed Shuxaltsei and left the temple, you can overhear a conversation between the survivors.

Nisswo Xode "Come, the Teeth of Sithis won't be safe until we get aid from the tribes."
Nisswo Nedhellas: "So we're not going back? Give'em a good bash ourselves?"
Nisswo Dakee-Kai: "I would rather gather support in Lilmoth. get some rest, maybe a warm meal."
Nisswo Nedhellas: "I bet Sithis would want to bash…."
Nisswo Xode "Right now, I am strongly considering it."

When you speak with Nisswo Nedhellas he is very eager to get back to the fight.

"Vampy-bastards can't make a sandwich to spare their lives—not that I would—meats all dry! Got to get my strength up for the bashing to come!
Soon those toothy gits will learn just what this Bosmer is made of. Fists!"
You want to go back to the Teeth?
"Bet your arse! It's still full of things needing a good crack in the jaw and I haven't bashed heads in months!
Xode says we've got to go to Lilmoth and get help, but soon as I grab some decent grub, I'll be back. No fun bashing on an empty stomach."
Are you one of the custodians of the Teeth? (Option appears after he has been spoken with once then engaged in conversation again.)
"What do you mean "am I one of the custodians"? Of course I am.
Oh, I get what you're driving at. Don't look scaly enough for the part. That's it, isn't it?"
I didn't expect to find a Wood Elf tending to an Argonian Temple. That's all.

Lilmoth[edit]

Once She Who Eats the Light is completed, he can eventually be found in the tavern in Lilmoth, where you can overhear him drunkenly talking about vampires with Jeberilie Cedmain.

Nisswo Nedhellas: "Hoo. Stronger than I remember. Must've lost more blood than I thought!"
Nisswo Nedhellas: "You think vampires drink? Don't say it! I'm not talking about blood!"
Jeberilie Cedmain: "I can't see why they would."
Nisswo Nedhellas: "Don't drink. No wonder they're trying to end the world! Miserable rotten life, that is! I'd bash my brains out if— … this bar always wobble so much?"
