A lone Altmer this far from the Summerset isles is either dedicated or dangerous. In truth, if Captain Kaleen had not directly requested him, I would have ridden on by and left this Elf to his Dwemer ruins. It’s not that I hold any particular animosity towards the ‘high’ Elves, I’ve just never met one that I liked.
As it turns out the Altmer wasn’t totally unappreciative of my efforts. I see now why he is so fascinated by these Dwemer mechanisms. They move freely of their own accord, and yet seem to have no intention or motivation other then what they were made for.
