Kill Deekus

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Get the contract from Nazir.
  2. Travel to Hela's Folly.
  3. Assassinate Deekus.
  4. Report back to Nazir to collect your reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Another simple assassination. Head to Hela's Folly, northeast of Dawnstar. Deekus is by himself, so he is easily picked off. Spread about his camp are some miscellaneous items such as gems and a Dibella Statue, presumably items he has looted from shipwrecks. There are two chests with Novice- and Apprentice-level locks that contain some minor loot; one is next to his tent and one is inside the shipwreck. The chest near the tent is protected by a bear trap, so opening it from behind is recommended. The chest in the shipwreck is located in the sunken half of the ship.

Like most assassination targets, you may choose to have a conversation with Deekus.

Topic Dialogue
"I'm going to kill you. Slowly. Painfully." "You'll have to catch me first!"
(Remain silent) "Go away! I don't know who you are, but this is my spot! Whatever's on that ship is mine!"
"I'm sorry, egg brother, but I've been sent to kill you." (If the player is an Argonian)
"I'm sorry, Argonian, but I've been sent to kill you." (if the player is not Argonian)
"What? Why? I don't understand... I have done nothing to wrong you. Please, mercy!"

After the kill, report back to Nazir for some leveled gold as a reward.
