Kaye

Kaye is a Redguard trader who is in charge of the Shrine Sergeants of the Imperial Cult at their chapels in Ebonheart. He has a number of quests for those who join the cult. As the Shrine Sergeant, his quests typically involve more action and combat than those of his fellows, Iulus Truptor and Synnolian Tunifus. Like them, however, he is rather pushy, as most of his dialogue is in the form of greetings. Kaye is also a merchant and has a small selection of general goods for sale.

Dialogue[edit]

  • Greetings:
    • "Hello, %PCRank %PCName. My name is Kaye, and I'm in charge of the volunteer shrine sergeants for the cult. Are you ready for a shrine sergeant assignment?"
      • I'm ready for a shrine sergeant assignment. "Good. I could use a little help here. We treated a High Elf named Caryarel for swamp fever, but we later discovered that while he was here, a rare Chapel Limeware Bowl disappeared from our shrine. Will you find this Caryarel and retrieve our bowl for us? The High Elves are a small, tight-knit community on Vvardenfell. Try asking other High Elves if they know Caryarel and where he lives."
      • I have something else to ask about. "Hmm. That's too bad. I could sure use some help here. But... go ahead. What can I do for you?"
    • "Have you recovered our Chapel Limeware Bowl?"
      • No, but I'm working on it. "Good. I'll be waiting."
      • I'm sorry, but I can't seem to find that bowl. [Disposition -10.] "Hmm. Quitters never prosper, %PCName. This is not a way to get into the cult's good graces. Don't come back looking for more missions for at least a day. Get your priorities straight before you ask me again for a shrine sergeant mission." Goodbye
    • "I told you not to come back for a full day. And understand -- if I do give you another shrine sergeant mission, you had better take your commitments more seriously."
      • Yes, I have the bowl right here. [Disposition +10. 200 Gold has been added to your inventory. 3 Scroll of Divine Intervention has been added to your inventory. Chapel Limeware Bowl has been removed from your inventory.] "So you found Caryarel? And recovered our bowl? Well done! Here. Let me give you something to cover your expenses. And here are a few Divine Intervention scrolls. I never go anywhere without them. And when you're ready for another shrine sergeant mission, speak to me again." Goodbye
    • "A reminder. Check with me from time to time concerning your advancement in the Imperial cult. As you labor for the Nine, you'll rise in rank according to your efforts."
    • "A Bosmer named Nedhelas in Caldera says his house is haunted by a ghost. You'll need an enchanted weapon or suitable spells, because only spells, enchanted weapons, or refined weapons like silver daggers can harm a ghost. I don't know what you prefer, so take these 200 drakes. Buy something that suits you, and use the rest for expenses. Talk to Nedhelas first, and report back to me if you get rid his haunted house of its ghost."
    • "Have you taken care of that haunted house for Nedhelas in Caldera yet?"
      • No, but I'm working on it. "Good. I'll be waiting."
      • I'm sorry, but this mission is just too hard for me. [Disposition -10.] "Hmm. Quitters never prosper, %PCName. This is not a way to get into the cult's good graces. Don't come back looking for more missions for at least a day. Get your priorities straight before you ask me again for a shrine sergeant mission." Goodbye
    • "I told you not to come back for a full day. And understand -- if I do give you another shrine sergeant mission, you had better take your commitments more seriously."
      • Yes, I took care of the haunted house. [Disposition +10. 2 Scroll of Golnara's Eye-Maze has been added to your inventory.] "So. You've taken care of that haunted house problem for Nedhelas. Very good. I hope the 200 gold I gave you covered your expenses. And here's something else for you. When I have a choice, I like to go around trouble, rather than into trouble, and these scrolls come in handy for that. When you're ready for another shrine sergeant mission, speak to me again." Goodbye
    • [300 Gold has been added to your inventory.] "Not long ago we drove a concern of witches from the old Daedric ruins of Ashalmawia. However, one witch escaped -- a Dark Elf named Thelsa Dral. But just recently egg miners from nearby Asha-Ahhe Egg Mine have companies that the mine is cursed. Perhaps Thelsa Dral has taken refuge there. Go to Asha-Ahhe Egg Mine, near the village of khuul [sic], and if you find the witch Thelsa Dral, kill her. When you are sure the wicked creature is dead, return and report back to me. Here is some gold for expenses."
    • "Have you found and killed the witch Thelsa Dral in Asha-Ahhe Egg Mine."
      • No, but I'm working on it. "Good. I'll be waiting."
      • I'm sorry, but this mission is too dangerous for me. [Disposition -10.] "Hmm. Quitters never prosper, %PCName. This is not a way to get into the cult's good graces. Don't come back looking for more missions for at least a day. Get your priorities straight before you ask me again for a shrine sergeant mission." Goodbye
    • "I told you not to come back for a full day. And understand -- if I do give you another shrine sergeant mission, you had better take your commitments more seriously."
      • The witch Thelsa Dral is dead. [Disposition +10. Firestone has been added to your inventory.] "I'm glad to see you back in one piece. Since I didn't know how tough she was.... Anyway, you're back, and Thelsa Dral is out of the way. I've been thinking. These shrine missions are getting tougher, and I thought you might like to have this old ring. I don't use it anymore, but it came in handy several times when I was younger. Take it, with my thanks, and when you're ready for another mission, speak to me again." Goodbye
    • [Detect Enchantment Ring has been added to your inventory. 100 Gold has been added to your inventory.] "An acolyte named Linus Iulus disappeared some years ago. He was last seen leaving Suran headed east on foot for Zafirbel Bay. Recently our oracle, Lalatia Varian, has had a vision of a Silver Staff of Shaming, and Linus Iulus had one of these staves. Here is a Detect Enchantment ring and 100 gold for expenses. Go to Mount Kand. Find a Silver Staff of Shaming there, retrieve it, and bring it to me, along with any other personal effects you find that belonged to Linus Iulus."
    • "Have you found the Silver Staff of Shaming that belonged to Linus Iulus?"
      • No, but I'm working on it. "Good. I'll be waiting."
      • I'm sorry, but this mission is too difficullt [sic] for me. [Disposition -10.] "Hmm. Quitters never prosper, %PCName. This is not a way to get into the cult's good graces. Don't come back looking for more missions for at least a day. Get your priorities straight before you ask me again for a shrine sergeant mission." Goodbye
    • "I told you not to come back for a full day. And understand -- if I do give you another shrine sergeant mission, you had better take your commitments more seriously."
      • I have the Silver Staff of Shaming. [Disposition +10. Restoration Shirt has been added to your inventory. Silver Staff of Shaming has been removed from your inventory.] "Thank you for retrieving the Silver Staff of Shaming. To honor Linus Iulus' memory, we will pass it on to some faithful servant of the Imperial cult. And as a reward for your service, here is a Restoration shirt. It will keep you fresh during heavy exercise, like long-distance running or tough fights. Thank you for your exertions on the cult's behalf, and when you're ready for another mission, speak to me again." Goodbye OR' [Disposition +10. Restoration Shirt has been removed from your inventory. Linus Iulus' Stendarran Belt has been removed from your inventory. Linus Iulus' Maran Amulet has been removed from your inventory.] "You've found Linus Iulus' Silver Staff of Shaming, and his Maran Amulet and Stendarran Belt. I think you should keep the staff, in honor of Linus Iulus' sacrifice. And we'll pass on the anulet and belt to some new lay servant. And as an additional reward for your service, here is a Restoration shirt. It will keep you fresh during heavy exercise, like long-distance running or tough fights. Thank you for your exertions on the cult's behalf, and when you're ready for another mission, speak to me again." Goodbye
    • [100 Gold has been added to your inventory.] "An Argonian named Okur in Hla Oad has asked for our aid. This devout follower of the Nine is sensitive to spirits of the otherworld, and she says she is being visited by the ghost of a murder victim. The guards can't do anything in such cases. Go and speak with Okur. Here's some gold for expenses. If possible, discover the nature of the crime, and bring justice to wronged spirit so it can be laid to rest."
    • "Let me know when you've helped Okur take care of the ghost of the murder victim."
      • I'm still working on it. "
      • I'm sorry, but this mission is too difficullt [sic] for me. [Disposition -10.] "Hmm. Quitters never prosper, %PCName. This is not a way to get into the cult's good graces. Don't come back looking for more missions for at least a day. Get your priorities straight before you ask me again for a shrine sergeant mission." Goodbye
    • "I told you not to come back for a full day. And understand -- if I do give you another shrine sergeant mission, you had better take your commitments more seriously."
    • I took care of everything just as Okur told me. [Disposition -10. Scroll of Hellfire has been added to your inventory. Scroll of Summon Flame Atronach has been added to your inventory. Scroll of The Fifth Barrier has been added to your inventory.] "So Okur needed you to kill the smugglers who murdered Julielle Aumine and to recover the dead woman's lost amulet. Well, if Okur is sure she can lay the ghost to rest now, that's good enough for me. And, as it happens, I just received a donation of magic scrolls. Let me give you these three. Thank you. That's all I have for you. But there might be work for lay healers or almoners, or you might talk to Lalatia Varian about Oracle's Quests." Goodbye
    • "I have no more shrine sergeant missions for. Speak to Synnolian Tunifus or Iulus Truptor downstairs, if you haven't already. I have given your name to our Oracle here, Lalatia Varian. She may have some more difficult challenges."
    • "I appreciate your asking, %PCName, but I have no more shrine sergeant missions for you. If you haven't already considered being one of our lay healers or almoners, I suggest you speak to Synnolian Tunifus or Iulus Truptor downstairs. I have also passed your name to our Oracle here, Lalatia Varian. She may have some more difficult challenges to interest you. But it's always good to see you, and if there's anything I can do for you, let me know."

  • Asha-Ahhe Egg Mine: "The mine is east of the ruins of Ashalmawia, and just south of the village of Khuul."
  • Caryarel
    • "He was a tall, dark-haired fellow with sharp features -- but that description would fit a lot of High Elves. We were treating him for swamp fever, so perhaps he lives along the coasts, when mud crabs [sic] sometimes carry disease. As I said, try asking around among High Elves. I believe there are several serving in the Hawkmoth Legion Garrison here in Ebonheart."
    • "So. Caryarel is with us no more. I appreciate your telling me. But let me just say this, %PCName. You were there, and I wasn't. So it's your call, and I'll back you up. But if you can handle these shrine sergeant tasks with a minimum of killing... I think that's more in the spirit of the teaching of the Nine. If you're attacked first, then of course you're in the right. But even a bad life should never be cheap. End of sermon."
If Kaye's disposition is ≥ 70, the same dialogue below is yielded but his disposition does not increase.]
    • [Disposition < 70. Disposition +30.] "Well. I'm glad you were able to get the bowl without... well... excessive force. I appreciate a sense of restraint and judgement. Don't see it that often in Morrowind. I think you and I will get along just fine."
  • Chapel Limeware Bowl:
    • "The bowl was a gift from a benefactor. It's a unique item, quite valuable, and it would be embarrassing if our benefactor were to visit and find it missing."
    • "We're very glad to have it back. Now we have it in a safe place."
  • enchanted weapons: "Since you're going to Caldera, look in on the trader Verick Gemain. He might have the kind of enchanted weaponsyou're looking for -- at a reasonable price."
  • haunted house:
    • "I don't know the details. You'll have to go talk to Nedhelas in Caldera."
    • "Yes. You took care of that affair."
  • Khuul: "Khuul is a small village on the northwest coast of Vvardenfell. Silt strider can carry you as far as Gnisis. Then you'll have to travel north on foot, cross-country. The only certain landmarks in the region are the village of Khuul, the Daedric ruins at Ashalmawia southwest of Khuul, and the village of Ald Velothi, on the coast west of both Ashalmawia and Khuul."
  • Linus Iulus: "Lalatia Varian gave him the Silver Staff of Shaming and sent him in search of a traitor who had betrayed the cult. I believe she knew he was not equal to the task, though he begged for the quest, and I think his death is a burden on her conscience. I doubt that any of his physical remains will survive years of exposure to the elements. But you might find his Maran Amulet and Stendarran Belt. It would be a comfort to pass them on to other lay servants, to honor the memory of Linus Iulus."
  • little secret: [Disposition ≥ 30] "An associate was on an expedition to Azura's Coast -- he just walks the beaches and islands, looking for opportunities -- and the oddest thing -- he came back with tons of cash. Said he'd bumped into a real big spender... seemed sort of frazzled by the whole thing. He was pretty tight-lipped about the guy -- only said that he was a bit eccentric and seemed to have a serious alcohol problem."
  • Mount Kand: "Mount Kand is in the Molag Amur region. Speak to Nevosi Hlan, shipmaster at the Ebonheart docks. Take a ship to Tel Branora; from there, you can get a ship to Molag Mar. From Molag Mar travel on foot north by roads, watching for signs to Mount Kand. I don't know the region myself, but I've heard it is wild and dangerous, and easy to get lost in."
  • Nedhelas:
    • "I don't know anything about the fellow, other than that he has a haunted house in Caldera."
    • "I trust you remembered to tell Nedhelas that his house is no longer haunted."
  • Okur:
    • "She's got a touch of the Sight. Some Argonians are like that. It may seem spooky, but you can trust what she says."
    • "Thanks for taking care of that matter."
  • shrine sergeant: "A shrine sergeant helps keep order at the shrines, carries messages and packages, and sometimes escorts priests and lay servants on dangerous missions. This occasional service is ideal for bold, free-spirited adventurers like you. Supervising the shrine sergeants is my responsibility."
  • Silver Staff of Shaming: "Lalatia Varian, our oracle, says that in a dream she has seen the Silver Staff of Shaming lying in the land of burning rock, under the shadow of the Mountain of Fear. I don't understand the mumbo-jumbo of dream interpretation, but she tells me that an old name for Mount Kand is Mountain of Fear. As she reads her dream, she believes the staff will be found either east or west of the mountain, in the shadow of the rising or setting sun. The Detect Enchantment ring should help you find the staff."
    • "Thank you for recovering the staff."
  • Thelsa Dral:
    • "We know little about her, other than that she could summon bonewalkers. That means she is no piddling hedgewizard. Be careful."
    • "We don't have to worry about her any more, do we?"
