"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 the Key to Eltrys's Room (in The Warrens, last door on the left, Novice level lock) 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.


This section contains bugs related to Eltrys. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • 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".
