"Gods. A woman attacked right on the streets. Are you all right?"

Eltrys is a Breton living in Markarth.


He may seem like a normal bystander at first, but after Weylin attacks Margret in the market he approaches the Dragonborn and claims he or she has dropped a note. He hands the note to the Dragonborn who obviously does not own it. It is named Eltrys' Note. The note directs the Dragonborn to the Shrine of Talos. There, he asks the player to gather information on Weylin and Margret promising to pay handsomely for what the player uncovers.

Eltrys has an intimate relationship with Rhiada. This is indicated by the presence of Eltrys' room key in Rhiada's inventory.


After gathering enough evidence about the conspiracy in Markarth and you return to the shrine, you will find his dead body and the three guards who murdered him. They are working for the Silver-Blood Family, and try to frame the Dragonborn for all the murders during the quest. These events begin the mission No One Escapes Cidhna Mine.


  • During a Companions quest, the player might be asked to rescue Eltrys from a random location. If the player has already completed The Forsworn Conspiracy, this quest is broken, as Eltrys lies dead in his cell and there is no way to talk to him.
  • It is possible to find Eltrys dead for no apparent reason, rendering his quest impossible to complete. This also prevents the player from earning the potential rewards from the following quest, No One Escapes Cidhna Mine.
  • It is possible to still find Eltrys alive, after he was killed in the quest, "No One Escapes Cidhna Mine".
