For other uses, see Baladas Demnevanni.

Baladas Demnevanni is a well-versed Dunmer House Telvanni Sorcerer and Councilman who resides near the outskirts of Gnisis. He maintains a pet Daedroth, several skeletons, a couple of rats, and a Centurion Sphere as guardians of his home. He is involved in a number of quests (including two of which he gives himself).


He claims to have been in Gnisis since before the Empire came, and will be there long after it has withered away. He is not particularly fond of most visitors; although, if his quests are completed, he will become almost like a fatherly figure towards the Nerevarine.


He is a formidable scholar, being one of only a very select few persons in all of Vvardenfell who can readily translate Aldmeris, and will gladly translate The Egg of Time and Divine Metaphysics Adapted to the Meanest of Intellects for the Nerevarine if he likes him or her enough (and has possession of Hanging Gardens of Wasten Coridale), and thereby answer one of the games deepest mysteries of Morrowind: the Disappearance of the Dwarves.

If both of his quests are completed, he will grant the Nerevarine the Centurion as a permanent ally that will follow him or her almost anywhere, which will last long enough if well-maintained. It can be trapped in certain areas (such as the staircase at the Ald'ruhn Mages Guild) if the Nerevarine does not want it around, or does not want to risk its destruction.
