Both he and his brother gained their skills in combat while serving in the Imperial Legion. When they heard about the attacks on the chapels and that the Knights of the Nine were reforming, they traveled to the Priory in hopes of joining the fight against Umaril.
When accepted into the Knights, they will re-equip themselves with the standard armor all of the knights wear: a Knights of the Nine Shield and Cuirass with a chainmail helmet, gauntlets, greaves, and boots.
"Hail, Sir Knight! My brother and I have heard that you are founding a holy order of knights, and we would like to offer you our swords. We've come all the way from Skyrim to join up. We can't claim any experience as knights, but we learned soldiering from our years in the Legion. Will you have us?"
- I accept. Welcome to the Order. "You won't regret it, sir. You'll find us true-hearted and brave. I'll be back as soon as I've outfitted myself."
- You are not yet worthy. "You're the commander. We know how to take orders. But I know that one day we'll earn your trust."
(If approached after deeming Gukimir not worthy)
"My brother and I still hope to serve the gods as Knights of the Nine. Have you changed your mind? Will you induct us into the Order?"
