Alessia Caro is an Imperial noble and the Countess of Leyawiin, due to her marriage to Marius Caro, as well as the daughter of Countess Arriana Valga of Chorrol. Her chaplain and chief adviser is Hlidara Mothril. She has a private torture chamber hidden in Castle Leyawiin, which can be accessed through the basement. Until the end of the Thieves Guild quest "Ahdarji's Heirloom," she is flagged as essential. If completed before "Sanguine," she can be killed, rendering the quest unable to be completed without the Staff of Worms.
She is an outspoken racist and hates the ways of other races, especially Argonians and Khajiits; if the Hero is an Argonian, she speaks in a derogatory manner toward them. Indeed, her hatred of the beast races is so much that she maintains a private torture chamber in the depths of Leyawiin Castle, where she and her husband make a point of torturing Argonian immigrants from Black Marsh. This behavior disgusts many of her staff.
Alessia Caro can be found in the chapel in the morning and at the dining room (8 PM) in Castle Leyawiin, and she retires some time after 11 PM. On the ides (15th-17th), she travels to Chorrol to visit her mother.
Sanguine tells the Hero that there is to be a dinner party at Castle Leyawiin hosted by Countess Alessia Caro. Disgusted with the propriety and arrogance of the convention, he sends the Hero to interrupt it by casting the Stark Reality spell on all give dinner guests. After the completion of "Ahdarji's Heirloom", Alessia Caro is no longer flagged as essential, meaning she can be killed during her visits to Chorrol. If this happens, reanimate her with the Staff of Worms and lead her back to the party.
