At one point, the Dakarn Clan of Khajiit had taken control of the organized crime in Dune and Thizzrini Arena all the while, fighting the Vinedusk Tribe of Bosmeri in Reaper's March.[2]

During the Alliance War, Dune was attacked twice by Daedric Forces. Once in 2E 581, outside the city when a dolmen was opened on the outskirts of Dawnmead. The invaders were luckily defeated when a group of Fighters Guild hunters came to the city after seeing the events unfold in a dream.[3]

The second attack occurred a year later in 2E 582, before the Lunar Champion became the new Mane after Akkhuz-ri. Javad Tharn lead an assault on the city with daedra. The Aldmeri Dominion, and the Eyes of the Queen lead by Queen Ayrenn protected the city from the daedric threat. The Moon Hallowed and the Lunar Champion defeated Javad Tharn at the Two Moons Path.
