|House||Malintus Ancrus' House|
|Faction(s)||Chorrol Citizen; Thieves Guild (Cat Burglar )|
Malintus Ancrus is an Imperial thief living in Chorrol with a Dunmer woman named Glistel. The people of Chorrol frequently express disdain at this "shameful" relationship, but this may only be a front, as they are both Thieves Guild members, and the only representatives of the guild living in the city.
Despite being one of the few connections the Thieves Guild has in Chorrol, Malintus lives a very relaxed life. He starts his day by waking up at 6am and will begin to wonder around his house. Sometime after 10am, he will be visited by Gaturn gro-Gonk. He will quickly send Gaturn off after a brief conversation. He will continue to wonder around his house for the remainder of the day until heading to bed at midnight. During the quest Arrow of Extrication, Malintus will calmly wait outside his house while you and the Gray Fox conduct business.
Malintus wears a set of lower class clothing: a coarse linen shirt, laced leather pants and a pair of rough leather shoes. He is armed with an iron dagger and carries some lockpicks, a torch, his key and a small amount of gold.
Speaking to Malintus Ancrus for the first time will have him greet you by saying; "I'm Malintus Ancrus. How are you doing?" Asking him about his city of choice will have him reply; "Glistel and me, we keep an eye on things here in Chorrol for certain interested parties... as a public service, like." When you are sent to meet The Gray Fox in his house, Malintus will stay outside; when he spots you, he will say: "Don't keep the Gray Fox waiting." Speaking to him will net you another reminder; "The Gray Fox is waiting for you." After your conversation with the Gray Fox, Malintus will remind you one last time; "Aren't you supposed to be on a quest for the Gray Fox?"
