Therdon is a Redguard commoner found in The Winged Guar. He's looking for work since he lost his job at a pillow factory the previous week, and you might be able to help him find work as a smith's apprentice.

He wears a common shirt with matching pants and shoes. Like all Redguards, he has a natural resistance to poison and disease, and can boost his health, strength, agility and endurance for a short period of time; otherwise he knows no spells.

"Hi there, %PCRace. Care to drink away your troubles with me?"
drink away
"Well, my life isn't exactly gold-kanet-sunshine-happy at the moment. More like bungler's-bane-bummer. I got laid off from my job at the pillow factory last week. The market for pillows has really bottomed out in the last few years. Turns out that the average family home doesn't need 25 pillows per person like we originally thought. Who knew the market would turn so sour so suddenly?
It didn't take long for the money guys in the exquisites upstairs to burn through all our pillow venture capital. Offices in the best Telvanni towers, 1500-septim chairs upholstered in the finest scamp skin, and unlimited stores of mazte. We would spend 16 hours a day or more in there, doing what we loved -- crafting pillows. It was a dream come true for me. Ever since I was young, I dreamed of creating the perfect pillow. Well, those days are over now. I need to find work.
What's that? Bols Indalen at Craftmen's Hall is looking for a new apprentice? Hmm.... Well, it's not making pillows, but it is work. I just might try that out. Thanks, %PCRace. Next time you see me, perhaps I'll be working in the smith's shop. Have a drink on me!"

If spoken to again before he has left:

"Thank you for mentioning that job opportunity at the smithy's to me, %PCName. I hope to check it out very soon, as soon as I finish my shein."

When spoken to at Craftmen's Hall:

"Hey there, %PCName! I got the job! Thanks so much for recommending this to me. It's hard work, but I just imagine that every breastplate or shield I turn out is just a thin, hard pillow made of metal, and I get through the day just fine. Here, I don't have much money, but I can offer you some tools that might come in handy. Also talk to my boss, Bols. He's pretty happy at having a new apprentice, and will give you some good deals."

Whenever spoken to afterward:

"Hello again, %PCName. I'm loving this job. Thanks so much for recommending it to me! It sure beats those blasted pillows!"


  • It is possible that Therdon's sarcastic remarks about the crashing pillow industry (and especially his comment that "it turns out the average home doesn't need 25 pillows per person") allude to Drarayne Thelas and her obsessive hoarding of pillows, which players may have encountered in the base game.
