Daela Thadus is a Dunmer member of the Mages Guild. She is found at the hall in Davon's Watch.


"I've always found the study of Daedra fascinating. It's unfortunate that so much knowledge about them is forbidden by the Tribunal."

Why are you so interested in Daedra? "They're tied closely to the history of my people, for good or ill. The mountains of the Ashlands are rife with old Daedric ruins. Some are not as forgotten as we might like."
Are there Daedric ruins nearby? "They dot the slopes of Ash Mountain. Legends tell of a secret Daedric library there, devoted to the Daedric Prince Hermaeus Mora."
Do you think this place really exists? "I've learned not to dismiss rumor and legend out of hand. Whether there's an actual library or just a fiery pit of screaming Daedra, I couldn't say."
What can you tell me about Tanval Indoril? "You truly don't know? You must know about House Indoril. They're one of the most powerful noble families in all Morrowind. Tanval is the grandmaster of the House, the leader of the entire clan."
How did the grandmaster befriend Holgunn? "They're an odd pair, aren't they? The grandmaster is so cool and cerebral and Holgunn is so ... Nord. Most know only that they served together in the Akaviri War, but out guild collects secrets. You'd like to know more, wouldn't you?"
Of course. "The grandmaster's unit was ambushed by those Akavir Snakes, cut off from the rest of our forces. Holgunn's scouting party came on the scene and rushed in to rescue them. He and the grandmaster were the only survivors. They fought back to back."
