M'raaj-Dar is a Khajiit merchant in the Cheydinhal Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary. He sells a variety of items, including some unique enchanted weapons and poisoned apples, and is also a spell merchant with unique Dark Brotherhood-themed spells. He is notable for his instant and great dislike of the Hero of Kvatch, which he eventually renounces at the end of his life.
M'raaj-Dar dislikes the Hero when they first join the Dark Brotherhood and talks aggressively to them. Unless playing as a Khajiit, M'raaj-Dar will call the Hero a "foul-smelling ape." He refers to a Khajiit Hero as a "house cat" and "a disgrace to Elsweyr."
Upon beginning The Purification, he says he likes the Hero for all that they have done in the Dark Brotherhood and ascending in rank proves this. M'raaj-Dar also would gladly be their friend. He offers to do a "fresh start" and is now polite and friendly. Unfortunately, completing the Purification requires the Hero to kill him.
M'raaj-Dar is one of the members of the Cheydinhal Sanctuary who must be killed during this quest.

- "Foul-smelling ape..." ―Exit dialogue.
- "Away from me, housecat! Look at that fur, what a disgrace!" ―If the Hero is a Khajiit.
- "I have it on good authority that the newest member of the Dark Brotherhood is an annoying whelp unworthy of licking my boots. How's that for gossip?" ―If asked about any gossip
- "Let's get this straight. The Tenets prevent me from killing you, but I don't have to like you. We don't need an outsider!" ―When first met
- M'raaj-Dar cannot be invested in even if the Hero has the required mercantile skill.
- He will buy stolen items.
- After completing the Dark Brotherhood questline, a female Dark Brotherhood Murderer will take M'raaj-Dar's place and sell his wares and spells at the end of the Dark Brotherhood storyline, though she will not sell the unique items that M'raaj-Dar sold.
- If asked for rumors before the Purification quest, he will insult the Hero by stating "a welp that doesn't even deserve to lick his boots", similar to Owyn.
- After exiting dialogue, he will say, "Foul-smelling ape..." to the Hero even if they are a non-human such as Argonian.
