Madesi is one of the few remaining traditional Saxhleel jewelers in Tamriel. Bandits and other such troubles have made journeys to mines and other towns difficult. His profession becomes more and more difficult each day, thus he asks the Dragonborn for assistance with obtaining supplies. He rewards the Dragonborn with and an item of jewelry.
Svana: "Madesi, why don't you just take a bed here? There's no need to sleep in Beggar's Row."
Madesi: "The cold stone...the dampness...it suits me, Svana."
Svana: "Are you sure that's the real reason? It wouldn't have anything to do with others making an Argonian unwelcome, because if it is..."
Madesi: "You have a kind heart, much too kind for Riften. Don't worry about me, I'll be just fine."
Madesi: "Lady Maven, how may I help you?"
Maven: "Is it true that you refused to sell one of your... trinkets to Hemming?"
Madesi: "Please, milady, it was only because he threatened me. He said he'd have me thrown in the prisons if I didn't give him what he wanted! I can't afford to just give my jewelry away!"
Maven: "Next time a Black-Briar asks for something, I suggest you respond quickly and affirmatively."
Drifa "We have a few pieces of jewelry at the Prawn, Madesi. Want to come look at them later?"
Madesi "I wish I could, milady. Sadly, I haven't sold enough of my own jewelry, let alone buy some from you. I'm sorry."
Drifa "Oh, I'm so sorry. I'm certain Bolli would be happy to lend you a few septims."
Madesi "Much appreciated, Lady Drifa, but I'll manage."
Dinya "When are you going to stop by the temple, Madesi?"
Madesi "Sorry Lady Dinya, but I've been busy of late."
Dinya "It only takes but a moment to say a silent prayer to Mara. Please come by soon; not for me, but for yourself."
Madesi "Very well, I'll try milady."
Shadr "Here's another septim, Madesi. How much more do I need?""
Madesi "Only thirty more and it'll be all yours. If I might ask, who is the lucky woman?"
Shadr "It's for Marise, but don't say a word to her!"
Madesi "Don't worry, Shadr, your secret is safe with me."
