 Detailed Walkthrough
 For the Love of a Bosmer
If you are very thorough, or lucky, you might have found a love letter in the southern planter on the Hlaalu Canton Plaza. The letter is from Gadayn Andarys to Eraldil and should be a good example of how not to write a love letter.
 Detective Work
You can find Andarys close by in his General Goods shop on the same level. It seems that, although eloquent, Andarys simply cannot profess his profound feelings to Eraldil, and asks you to act on his behalf. You can find Eraldil walking around on the Hlaalu Canton Waistworks level who will outright reject Andarys' profession of love, being rather rude in the process, suggesting that he marry her cousin instead. Return to Andarys with the bad news, though he takes it rather well, suggesting instead that you use a love potion to convince Eraldil.
 Play Cupid
You can either agree to use the potion, or bring up the suggestion about her cousin, Glathel. If you suggest her cousin, Andarys will have a literal change of heart, agreeing that Glathel would be a good choice. If you return to Andarys again ten days later, he and Glathel will have married and he is quite happy. So happy, in fact, that he will reward you with a Flamemirror Robe and cheap prices at his store.
 Buyer Beware
On the other hand, if you do agree to use the potion, bring it to Eraldil, pretending that Andarys is sending it as an apology. Eraldil accepts it with her usual rude remarks. Return once again to Andarys who is still optimistic and gives you a Light Ring as a reward. If you return to him a while later they'll be married and Eraldil is pregnant. However Gadayn's mood lowers greatly and he blames it mostly on you, raising his prices to boot.
- Mavon Drenim owns a second Flamemirror Robe, and a third is added by Tribunal; it is worn by Gavis Velas.
- The cheap prices are achieved by lowering Andarys' Mercantile skill by a total of 80 points and increasing his disposition by a total of 50 points. If he ends up marrying Eraldil, however, his mercantile increases by 50 instead and his disposition drops by 20.
