Slow down. The song is doing this to you? "Yes! Yes, the song. You've heard it. I can tell. It should be quiet. It isn't ready. It isn't perfect. But someone interfered. The ground shook and... the meddling! They broke it! They ruined it!"
- So a person is responsible for this? "Yes! But not one of us. No, it's a tinkerer. A meddler! Poking around and breaking things. Soiling them! He has to be punished. Yes! The song has to be pure. Has to be perfect! If not, the consequences... oh, the consequences!"
- Try to stay calm. I'll find this meddler.
"Did you hear that? No? Must be the wind."
- What sound? "That device in the mine was silenced, but I can still feel its song."
- We stopped the song. You're safe. "That's what they tell me. Simply a case of frayed nerves ringing ears. The healers say it will pass. I swear, though. Sometimes I can still hear a tune."
During the Vestige's endeavor into the mine, he finds Gauldur, and attempts to gain information from him.
