"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 them to gather information on Weylin and Margret, promising to pay handsomely for what is uncovered.

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 the shrine is returned to, his dead body will be found along with 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 quest "No One Escapes Cidhna Mine."



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

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  ,  PS3  ,  PC  .
  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.
  • During a Companions quest, the Dragonborn might be asked to rescue Eltrys from a random location. If "The Forsworn Conspiracy" has already been completed, 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 Dragonborn 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."
