Xykenaz is a powerful Dremora dwelling inside his private realm, where he was banished by Molag Bal after putting a whoopee cushion on the Prince's throne in an event recorded as "The Seat of Tyranny Rude Cushion Incident".

Mistress Dratha asks you to weaken him, so that he can be summoned to Tamriel where Dratha will attempt to make a Daedric pact with Xykenaz.

In combat, he uses a mix of ravager and thundermaul class abilities, and is accompanied by two weak flame atronachs.

Xykenaz in Tel Mora

After the quest, he is summoned by Mistress Dratha.

Mistress Dratha: "I shall begin the summoning immediately. Llayne be ready."
Mistress Dratha: "Xykenaz! Duke of black covenants! Appear! By the seven stones of your dark Prince, you will parley with me!"
Xykenaz: "Hmm … Dratha. Come to treat with another of Bal's servants? You will pay for this."
Mistress Dratha: "Silence, Daedra! Bend and heed my words! I demand immortality. Name your price."
Xykenaz: "Yes, price. There is no gift without cost, witch. I will grant your wish, but know this—you will live in endless fear, for on a day of my Master's choosing, I will come in the guise of a mortal man to claim your withered soul for Coldharbour."
Xykenaz: "There you will face an eternity of anguish and drown forever in an icy sea of shame. Tell me, scion of Azura, do you accept my terms?"
