Edras Oril is a Dunmer who resides in Vvardenfell. He is a scholar and amateur naturalist, especially fascinated by kagoutis. Thus, he can't resist to investigate a group of Mating Kagoutis while he was traveling with his friend Thoronor.
Edras Oril has left his travelling companion Thoronor to observe some mating kagoutis and their specific calls. Thoronor has not seen him since and fears for his life. He asks the Nerevarine to look for Edras Oril, who can be found close to a couple of mating kagoutis.
