Caius Cosades

Caius Cosades, the Grand Spymaster of the Blades in Vvardenfell

For other use, see Blades.

The Blades are a faction present in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The Blades are the hidden Eyes and Ears of the Emperor in the provinces of Tamriel.[1] The faction is integral part of the main questline and progression through the ranks will occur as the storyline progresses.[2]

Joining the Blades will grant access to services provided by its members, such as training and bartering. The current spymaster in Vvardenfell is Caius Cosades.

HistoryEdit

Although, The Blades are known, it is difficult to account for their origins.[3] Their history can be traced back to the Akaviri bodyguards of Reman Cyrodiil, these immortal Akaviri dragon-slayers pledged themselves to Cuhlecain in order to aid General Talos' ascent to the throne.[4]

There are ancient Blade strongholds throughout Tamriel, two are known as, Cloud Ruler Temple, located in the Jerall Mountains in Cyrodiil, and Sky Haven Temple in Skyrim's hold of The Reach.[5][2]

Joining the BladesEdit

The Nerevarine is ordered by the Emporor Uriel Septim VII to join the Blades during the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Caius Cosades will have orders for the Nerevarine that will send them on many quests across Vvardenfell.

Blades RanksEdit

Unlike other factions, the Nerevarine will not be able to rise through the ranks to lead the Blades. Caius Cosades leaves suddenly for Cyrodiil, and abandons the Hero at rank five, as an 'Operative'.[2] As an Operative, the Nerevarine is the highest ranking Blade in Vvardenfell.[1]
