|Honor Thy Family|
|Location||Falkreath Sanctuary or Dawnstar Sanctuary|
|Prerequisite||Starts if one of the Brotherhood's laws are broken.|
|Reward||Re-admittance to the Dark Brotherhood|
There are several known ways to be banished by the Dark Brotherhood:
- Feeding on contract kills (with the Ring of Namira equipped).
- Pickpocketing, killing, and/or feeding on a Dark Brotherhood member.
- Killing the Dark Brotherhood's tame pet Frostbite Spider, Lis.
- Causing too much damage to a Dark Brotherhood Initiate follower. The Initiate will part ways and the player will be fined upon return to the Sanctuary.
After being banished from the Dark Brotherhood, the Dragonborn will not be able to perform any contracts until they talk to Nazir. If the Dragonborn has a Dark Brotherhood Initiate as a follower, he or she will refuse to speak to the Dragonborn, and will stop following them until the Dragonborn is re-admitted.
The Dragonborn may also speak to Nazir and he will ask for a payment fine of 500 (the amount diminishes if the Dragonborn possess high Speech skills and/or perks). Paying Nazir will complete the quest and the Dragonborn will be re-admitted into the Brotherhood.
Unlike in Oblivion, the Dragonborn can rejoin the Dark Brotherhood as many times as he/she likes.
One strange part about this is that during the quest The Cure For Madness, killing Cicero may trigger the quest Honor Thy Family, even though Cicero has betrayed the Dark Brotherhood himself and such it is unknown why Nazir and the others would care about the Dragonborn attacking him.
I have broken the rules of the Sanctuary, and must pay Nazir a fine before I can proceed with any Dark Brotherhood business.
