Lifting the Veil[edit]

When you first approach him:

<He stares coldly at you.>

Palomir has nothing to say to you until you correctly provide the Heritance passphrase:

Uh, the wine here is made with Alik'r grapes?
"Ah! A patriot! Let me get a look at you."
I'm here to join the cause.
"You look about right. Stars, yes! You might be just the right type. We'll need to test you first.
If you've been around Skywatch at all today, you've seen the Royal Guard. Right?"
"They're in the way. End the threat they represent to our cause.
Return with a blade and we'll move on to the next step."

If you talk to him again, he will urge you on:

"Go. Prove your worth."

After you have acquired an appropriate blade, by whatever means you can return to him.

<He stares coldly at you.>
Do you want me to say that wine thing again? Or do you just want the sword?
"I'm impressed. As I expected, you're not just recruit material. You could be an officer.
Let's drink a toast to your health!"
Bottoms up.

With a toast:

Palomir: "Drink up!"

Once you share in the toast, your vision will fade to black and you will wake up in an unknown place near a dock. Palomir will be waiting for you nearby.

"It's about time. You're heavier than you look."
What's going on?
"Welcome to the Veiled Isle. You're just off the coast of Skywatch. Our own private training ground.
You've been chosen to join. A cut above—an officer of the Veiled Heritance."
I'm ready. What do I have to do?
"You can see the black soul gem here. Place your hand on it. Good. You can come and go all you want. But first—you take the oath.
Be sure you want this. You commit your immortal soul with this pledge."
My soul, huh? I'm ready. Go ahead.
"Repeat after me. I pledge my life and soul to the Heritance and the Veiled Queen."
[Lie] I pledge my life and soul to the Heritance and the Veiled Queen.
"You've passed the first test of your initiation. Congratulations."

If you exit out of the conversation before turning in the quest, he will alternatively say:

"Bravely done."
Thanks. (Leads to quest completion dialogue)

Wearing the Veil[edit]

Speaking to him again will gain you further information about the other tests:

"You're a lucky recruit. The Veiled Queen herself will be making a speech in support of the cause. You'll be able to see her firsthand!
Assuming you survive the trials."
If I survive?
"Before you lies three trials—endurance, intelligence, and strength. A Heritance officer must embody all three of these virtues or they're no officer.
I recruited you. Don't fail me."
I won't. Which test comes first?
"Intelligence. Ohmonir proctors the test, just up the path from here. Go."
I'll find Ohmonir up the path.

If you talk to him again, he will just say:

"Get going, recruit. Don't fail me."
