"Whatever you want, the answer is no."

Master Neloth is a Dunmer mage who resides in the upper tower of Tel Naga in Sadrith Mora. He is a master-ranked member and Councilor of the Great House Telvanni and is involved in the Telvanni storyline as well as the Main Quest. He is respected by the other masters of the House, and is feared by the citizens of Sadrith Mora. Arara Uvulas serves as his mouth.


Neloth is an arrogant individual. He does not care for others, and considers himself superior to fellow members of House Telvanni. He is capable of doing anything, including theft or murder, to accomplish his goals.

He is not fond of the other houses and has kidnapped a Redoran girl, Nartise Arobar, in order to have power over her father, Miner Arobar.

Neloth does not show gratitude for services provided by anyone, including the Nerevarine. For instance, after killing Senise Thindo, a servant of Archmagister Gothren, in order to obtain the Robe of the Drake's Pride, he offers only ten gold pieces as a reward.


Drake's PrideEdit

Neloth asks the Nerevarine to obtain the Robe of the Drake's Pride from Senise Thindo by any means necessary.

Kill the Telvanni CouncilorsEdit

The Nerevarine must kill all the Telvanni Councilors, including Neloth, for Arch-Mage Trebonius Artorius of the Mages Guild.

Telvanni HortatorEdit

Neloth must be convinced to accept the Nerevarine as Hortator of the House Telvanni.


  • He knows 28 spells and has 100 Willpower.
  • A quest was removed from Morrowind where Master Aryon asks the Nerevarine to force Neloth out of the Council.
  • Even if he is killed in the respective quest, he reappears in Dragonborn.
  • He refers to the Nerevarine as a male, even though Nerevarine could have been male or female, much like the Hero of Kvatch or the Dragonborn.


After the eruption of the Red Mountain, Neloth moved to Solstheim, where he investigates the Heart Stones in his tower, Tel Mithryn.

    • Well, Neloth is one of the greatest mages of all time. He is most likely this old due to magic, of course. Killing him is canon, as all the gu...
