Legate Taurinus Duilis is the Imperial Legate stationed in the town of Morthal.


He is the leader of the Imperial troops of Hjaalmarch and is in command of the military efforts against the Stormcloak rebels in the region. 


He can be found in Highmoon Hall, the residence of Morthal's ruler, Jarl Idgrod Ravencrone, unless the Dragonborn chooses to take Hjaalmarch for the Stormcloaks, after which he is found in the Hjaalmarch Imperial Camp.


A False Front (Stormcloaks)Edit

Taurinus is the Legate that the forged version of the Imperial Documents must be given to in this quest.



A False FrontEdit

Taurinus will be found in Highmoon Hall, in the war room, to the left when entering the longhouse. His response to the Dragonborn will differ depending on what armor they are wearing:

I have important documents for you, sir. "Is that so? Lost your uniform along the way did you, soldier?"

Ditched it for this. Easier to sneak past the guard. "I suppose it would be. Good thinking. Thank you soldier. Let's take a look at these reports..."

Or, if the Dragonborn is wearing Imperial Armor he will not doubt that they are indeed the courier:

I have important documents for you, sir. "Thank you soldier. Let's take a look at these reports..."

Regardless of which option is chosen, he will follow up with the following:

"I'm waiting on word about reinforcements for the fort... Good, they're on the way. And we have some information on enemy troop movements. Excellent. Stormcloaks are making it difficult to move around. It's good you made it here in one piece. Why don't you have yourself a drink at the Moorside before you head back?"
