Catch a Spy is a Mages Guild Quest available in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.



Ranis Athrys in the Balmora Guild of Mages believes that the Guild has been infiltrated by a Telvanni spy. The assignment is to visit the Guild halls in Ald'ruhn, Sadrith Mora, Vivec in order to find the spy and report back to Ranis.

Acquire the Guild Guide. Go to the Ald'ruhn Guild and speak with Edwinna Elbert. However she seems to have no idea about the spy.

Travel to Sadrith Mora Mages Guild, talk to Skink-in-Tree's-Shade. He does suspect there is a spy but suggests checking in the Vivec Mages Guild where the Guild decisions are actually made.

Head to Vivec and speak to Trebonius Artorius. He denies the existence of spies, saying that his advisor Tiram Gadar keeps an eye out for that sort of thing. However, inquire further and Trebonius gives Tiram's credentials which appear to be forged since the High Chancellor, Imperial Battlemage Ocato's name is misspelled.

Return to Ranis with the phony credentials.

I told Ranis Athrys about Movis Darys in Ald'ruhn, but she is convinced that there is another spy in either Vivec or Sadrith Mora.
Tiram Gadar told me he is a "special advisor to Guildmaster Trebonius on Dunmer issues."
Sirilonwe told me that Trebonius consults Tiram Gadar before making any important decision.
Malven Romori told me that Tiram Gadar showed up recently and gave his credentials to Trebonius.
I told Ranis Athrys about Movis Darys in Ald'ruhn, but she is convinced that there is another spy in either Vivec or Sadrith Mora.
Guildmaster Trebonius gave me Tiram Gadar's "credentials." They are obvious forgeries. Even Ocato's name is misspelled.
I told Ranis Athrys about the spy Tiram Gadar. Ranis will deal with this issue herself.
