"I'm Felas Sarandas. Don't breathe on me."
―Felas Sarandas[src]

Felas Sarandas was a Dunmer agent who lived near the end of the Third Era and at the beginning of the Fourth. He was extremely germophobic, not wanting anyone to breathe on him or touch him.


Arriving in the IslesEdit

At some unknown point he was granted entry into the Shivering Isles, the Daedric Realm of Sheogorath. For his part, Felas was confined to the town of Passwall, which sat within The Fringe, an enclosed area designed to prepare its occupants for entry into the Isles proper. Exactly how long Felas was waiting there is unknown; in 4E 1, he and Shelden, the self-proclaimed "Mayor of Passwall," greeted the Hero of Kvatch when he entered the Isles. Felas and Shelden explained that the Hero could only pass into the Isles either by obtaining Sheogorath's blessing, or else killing the Gatekeeper who guarded the Gates of Madness. The Hero eventually succeeded in killing the Gatekeeper and was granted access into the Isles.

Role in GreymarchEdit

A short time later, the Greymarch officially began, and the Daedric Forces of Order began their assault on the Shivering Isles, starting with the Fringe. Knights of Order overran Passwall, and both Shelden and Felas were taken prisoner in the Spire, Order's base of operations. In order to save himself, Felas swore allegiance to Jyggalag and became a Priest of Order. It is highly feasible that he was instrumental in planning Order's numerous attacks on the Fringe, which were met by the Force of Madness, now led by the Hero. After Order's main offensive failed in the battle and the Spire was destroyed, Order was forced to retreat temporarily.


Shortly thereafter, Felas led an assault on the Gates of Madness which, to his surprise and detriment, were guarded by a new Gatekeeper, reconstructed with the help of the Hero. In the fight that followed, Felas and his Knights were killed.


Through the Fringe of MadnessEdit

"I'm Felas Sarandas. Don't breathe on me."

Gatekeeper "Pretty scary, isn't he? Jayred's planning on killing him. I don't know how... the Gatekeeper looks indestructible to me."
Gates of Madness "One leads to the lands of Mania, and one to Dementia. The Gatekeeper makes sure no one gets in who isn't supposed to."
Passwall "It's a nice enough place. Less dirty than others. I feel like I belong. That old man, in the room made out of butterflies, he said to wait here."

"I need a bath."


  • During the last battle of Felas against the new Gatekeeper, a glitch can occur in this scene in which he in hostile to the Knights of Order rather than the Hero and the Gatekeeper, despite wearing the robes of a Priest of Order.
