Find the Thalmor Assassin is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

WalkthroughEdit

After finishing the quest Diplomatic Immunity and saving Malborn, he can be found hiding in the New Gnisis Cornerclub in Windhelm. Talk to him and he will say that he is trying to flee to Morrowind, but can't because he's afraid of a Khajiit whom he thinks is a Thalmor agent who's been sent to kill him. After the Dragonborn agrees to help him, they need to go to Ri'saad's caravan camp. Upon arrival, the marker will disappear, and the Dragonborn will need to find out who is the assassin.

At this point, the Dragonborn has two options to find out who the assassin is:

  1. If J'datharr is pickpocketed, J'datharr's Note will be found. This will prove J'datharr as the Thalmor assassin ordered to kill Malborn.
  2. If Ri'saad or Ma'dran is present, a dialogue option appears where he may be asked about a Thalmor assassin. He will point out that J'datharr is not one of their caravan and is possibly the assassin. If the Dragonborn then talks to J'datharr, he will become hostile and attack. However, should Ri'saad not be present for whatever reason the Dragonborn can go ahead and kill J'datharr without gaining a bounty.

After killing him, head back to Malborn and he will thank the Dragonborn and give 250 GoldIcon.


JournalEdit

Journal Entry

I met Malborn hiding out in Windhelm. He thinks there's a Thalmor assassin on his trail, a Khajiit, waiting for him outside the city. I promised I'd take care of this assassin, if there really is one.

  • Objective: Find the Thalmor assassin

I met Malborn hiding out in Windhelm. I killed the Thalmor assassin who was on his trail. I should let him know it's safe for him to leave Windhelm.

  • Objective: Tell Malborn the assassin is dead
  • Quest complete

TriviaEdit

  • If the Dragonborn follows Malborn after receiving the reward, he will follow the path east, occasionally engaging the frost trolls and ice wraiths along the way. Should he survive these ordeals, he eventually reaches Refugees' Rest, where he disappears, marking the border between Morrowind and Skyrim.
  • If you clear the way of enemies before telling Malborn that the assassin has been taken care of, he runs straight through with no problem.
