DialogueEdit

Show: In My Time of Need
In Swindler's Den:

"Alik'r, hold! You've (referring to the Dragonborn) proven your strenght, warrior. Let's avoid any more bloodshed. I think you and I have some things to talk about."
"Stay your hand, warrior! It's no secret why you're here and you have proven your skill in combat. Let us talk a moment, and no one else needs to die. I think we can all profit from the situation in which we find ourselves. My men will not attack you, if you will lower your weapons."

I've been sent here to kill you. "Of course, sent by... what is it that she's calling herself these days? Shazra? Saadia? One of those, correct? Did she appeal to your sense of honor? Your greed? A more... base need, perhaps? It doesn't matter. No doubt she's convinced you that she's the victim. But, do you know why we pursue her?"
Saadia told me - you're assassins. "Assassins? No, nothing so crass. "Saadia", as you know her, is wanted by the noble houses of Taneth for treason. We were hired to see her returned to Hammerfell for her crimes. You can help us with that, and make sure no one else gets hurt."
So, what do you want me to do? "She trusts you, at least to some extent. She sent you after us, and has no reason to think that you'd do anything other than that. Convince her that we'll be coming for her, and she needs to leave. Lead her to the stables outside Whiterun. We'll be waiting to take her into custody. I'll gladly share a portion of the bounty in return for your efforts in seeing proper justice done."
All right, I'll do it. "Good. We'll be waiting for you at the stables. It will be good to finally be able to return home."
I was hired to kill you, and that's what I intend to do. "I'd hoped we could work something out, that you would see reason. That we could avoid having to kill you. Very well, then. If that's the way you want to play it, we will."
What was her crime? "She sold the city out to the Aldmeri Dominion. Were it not for her betrayal, Taneth could have held its ground in the war. The other noble houses discovered her betrayal and she fled. They want her brought back alive. The resistance against the Dominion is alive and well in Hammerfell, and they want justice."

Why are you after Saadia? "She sold the city out to the Aldmeri Dominion. Were it not for her betrayal, Taneth could have held its ground in the war. The other noble houses discovered her betrayal and she fled. They want her brought back alive. The resistance against the Dominion is alive and well in Hammerfell, and they want justice."

After capturing Saadia:

"Now, we'll take our friend here back to Hammerfell, where she will pay the price for her treason."

She won't be harmed? "Not on the way back. Once she gets there, it's not up to me to decide what's done with her. And as for you, I owe you a portion of the reward, don't I? Well, here you go. Spend it wisely, and if I may... Don't allow yourself to be fooled by a pretty face. You're better than that.

ConversationsEdit

Kematu: "We meet at last, my dear lady."
Saadia: "What is this? What have you (referring to the Dragonborn) done?"
Kematu: "Oh, come now. You didn't really expect to manipulate people forever, did you? Your luck had to run out sometime."
