Nibani Maesa is a Dunmer Wise Woman and a leader of the Nerevarine cult. She resides in the Wise Woman's Yurt.

She sells a variety of potions and other miscellaneous items as well as being a spellmaker.


Meet Sul-MatuulEdit

After talking with the former Ashlanders in the previous quest, the Spymaster Caius Cosades will give the Nerevarine their new orders: they must go to the Urshilaku Tribe and speak with their leaders about the Nerevarine Prophecies.

Master IndexEdit

The Nerevarine will need to talk to Folms Mirel at the Mages Guild in Caldera about the topic, "work." This will then trigger him asking them to get the ten Propylon Indices for him.

Meeting with a Wise WomanEdit

This quest can be obtained from Skink-in-Tree's-Shade in Sadrith Mora, if the Nerevarine has sufficient rank in the Mages Guild.

The Path of the IncarnateEdit

This quest involves he Nerevarine in locating the Cavern of the Incarnate. It forms the Third Trial of the Seven Visions of the Nerevarine and a significant part of the Main Quest.


Show: Meet Sul-Matuul
In the Wise Woman's Yurt:

"So. They've told me of you, outlander. Or, shall I say, Clanfriend. You are hard-headed. And ignorant. But perhaps it is not your fault. My lord ashkhan says you will ask me about the Nerevarine prophecies. He also says I will test you against the Nerevarine prophecies. I must do as my lord ashkhan says. So ask your questions, and I will test you."

Nerevarine prophecies "There are many Nerevarine prophecies, and they suggest many things. Aspect and uncertain parents. The moon-and-star. Sleepers. Seven curses. The curses' bane. The prophecy of the Stranger. The prophecy of the Seven Visions. The lost prophecies. Ask me about these things. If you are patient. If you would be wise. Or, if you are impatient to know, just ask: 'Do I pass the test of the Nerevarine prophecies? Go ahead, outlander. I am the wise woman. Ask your question. And I will answer."
Aspect and uncertain parents "If what you say is true, you are indeed born on a certain day of uncertain parents. This is part of the prophecy. But many have the same birthday, and many are not sure of their parents. It is interesting. But it does not make you the Nerevarine."
the moon-and-star "Legend says Indoril Nerevar's family standard bore the moon and star, and Nerevar's armor and weapons bore this sign. Some say he bore a moon-and-star birthmark. Some say he has a magic ring marked with a moon-and-star. Others say he was born under a moon-and-star. In any case, I think the moon-and-star is the mark of the Nerevarine, and you do not have this mark. So you are not the Nerevarine."
Sleepers "Rumors say that in the towns, mad cultists called "sleepers" are attacking peope, saying that Dagoth Ur has awakened, and will drive the outlanders from Morrowind. Perhaps it is just a coincidence. But I think it is a sign of the Nerevarine. Not necessarily a sign that YOU are the Nerevarine. Perhaps the time of the Nerevarine has come. And you have come at the same time. This is not passing a test. But it may mean you have some part to play in the coming of the Nerevarine."
Seven curses "It is another Ashlander prophecy of the Nerevarine. It is called "The Seven Curses of the Sharmat." But I do not know it, and I know no one who does. It may be lost. Such things happen. A wise woman dies, or forgets, or a clan is wiped out. Perhaps someone knows, but is keeping it secret. Perhaps it is in one of those many books of your settled peoples. I have heard that the Dissident priests of the Temple may have such books."
the Stranger "This is the best known of the Nerevarine Prophecies. We call it 'The Stranger'.
When earth is sundered, and skies choked black,
And sleepers serve the seven curses,
To the hearth there comes a stranger,
Journeyed far 'neath moon and star.

Though stark-born to sire uncertain
His aspect marks his certain fate.
Wicked stalk him, righteous curse him.
Prophets speak, but all deny.

Many trials make manifest
The Stranger's fate, the curses' bane.
Many touchstones try the stranger.
Many fall, but one remains."
the Seven Visions "The full title of the prophecy is "Seven Visions of Seven Trials of the Incarnate". Listen, and I wil ltell you the verses."
Seven trials
What he puts in his hand to, that shall be done.
What is left undone, that shall be done.

First trial
On a certain day to uncertain parents
Incarnat moon and star reborn.

Second trial
Neither blight nor age can harm him.
The Curse-of-Flesh before him flies.

Third trial
In caverns dark Azura's eye sees
and makes to shine the moon and star.

Fourth trial
A stranger's voice unites the Houses.
Three Halls call him Hortator.

Fifth trial
A stranger's hand unites the Velothi.
Four Tribes call him Nerevarine.

Sixth trial
He honors blood of the tribe unmourned.
He eats their sin, and is reborn.

Seventh trial
His mercy frees the cursed false gods,
Binds the broken, redeems the mad.

One destiny
He speaks the law for Veloth's people.
He speaks for their land, and names them great.

What does this prophecy mean? It tells us who the Nerevarine wil be, and the trials he must undergo before he fulfills his destiny. Some parts I understand. Some parts I do not. I will answer your questions as best I can. But I cannot pretend to understand it all."
Seven trials "The Incarnate cannot fail. What others have tried, he will do. What Nerevar started, the Incarnate shall finish."
First trial "This refers to your birthsign -- to your birth on a certain day to uncertain parents, just like in the Stranger prophecy."
birthsign "In Tamriel, persons born under certain constellations are said to be 'fortunate in their aspects.' Such persons are often blessed -- or cursed -- with remarkable abilities or weaknesses as a result of the magical conjunctions of celestial influences."
Second trial "I'm not sure what this means. Will the Nerevarine come as a spirit who is not harmed by blight or age? I don't know. But I think Curse-of-Flesh means the blight disease corprus, which causes terrible, distorted growths on its victims. Perhaps the Nerevarine can heal this disease. Perhaps that will be a sign of the Nerevarine."
Third trial "In legend there is a shrine to Azura called the Cavern of the Incarnate. There are secrets I may not tell you about this cavern. Do not ask."
Fourth trial "A "Hortator" is a war-leader chosen when Dunmer great houses must put aside their normal feuds to unite against a common enemy. This has not happened since the Empire invaded our land."
Fifth trial "The Ashlanders are sometimes called the Velothi, for the prophet Veloth who guided us to this land many, many centuries ago. And the Four Tribes are the four tribes of Vvardenfell, the Urshilaku, the Ahemmusa, the Zainab, and the Erabenimsun. It would truly be a miracle to unite these four tribes who have so long raided and warred with one another. But the Nerevarine must be one who performs miracles."
Urshilaku "The Urshilaku are the Ashlanders of the northern Ashlands and the West Gash. I am the wise woman of the Urshilaku, and the Ashkhan Sul-Matuul is our chief, a brave and respected war leader, and Warrior-Protector of the Nerevarine cult."
Ahemmusa "The Ahemmusa of the Grazelands are mild and peace-loving. The wise woman of the Ahemmusa, Sinnammu Mirpal, is also their ashkhan."
Zainab "The Ashlanders of the Zainab tribe are sly and crafty. Their camp is in the interior of the Grazelands."
Erabenimsun "The Erabenimsun of Molag Mar love themselves and their weapons above all else. Their Ashkhan Ulath-Pal is cruel and ambitious, and his gulakhans are just like him. Their Wise Woman, Manirai, is cautious and reasonable. Seek her counsel. Don't waste your speech on the war khans."
Sixth trial "I am not sure. "The tribe unmourned" may mean the Sixth House, House Dagoth, which was exterminated after the Battle of Red Mountain. But it may also mean the Dwemer, or the Dwarves, as Westerners call them. And "eating sin" is doing atonement for another's sin."
Seventh trial "'The cursed false gods' must be the Tribuna. They are surely false gods, evil sorcerers and necromancers, and they murdered Nerevar so they might set themselves up as gods. "Binds the broken" must refer to Nerevar's broken promise to the Ashlanders to honor the ways of the Spirits and rights of the Land."
One destiny "Veloth's people are the Dunmer, all Dunmer, Ashlander and Great House. The last time the Velothi were united were with Nerevar at the Battle of Red Mountain. Now Nerevar will come once again and unite the Dunmer. He will restore Morrowind to the Dunmer, and restore the former greatness of the Velothi people."
lost prophecies "There are Nerevarine prophecies that have been lost. The Seven Curses. And others. Some are forgotten. Some hidden. Some deliberately lost. The wise women are the memory of the Velothi people. But it is a faulty memory, and we are mortal, and our knowledge dies with us. But we hear that the Dissident Priests of the Temple study our Nerevarine prophecies, and record them in books. Such written words never die. You must go to them and ask for these books, and bring what you find to me."
pass the test "You are not the Nerevarine. You are one who may become the Nerevarine. It is a puzzle, and a hard one. But you have found some of the pieces, and you may find more. Do you choose to be the Nerevarine? Then seek the lost prophecies among the Dissident priests of the Temple. Find the lost prophecies, bring them to me, and I will be your guide. And take these copies of the Stranger and the Seven Visions. Now. I have told you all I know. Go. Think on what I've told you. And do what must be done."
pass the test "I have told you all I know. Go. Think on what I've told you. And do what must be done."
Nerevarine prophecies "I will give you what counsel I can. But I only see what may be, not what must be."


  • "Will you say you are deaf? Or stupid? Or rude? How do you explain? I have told you. You are in the wrong place. I told you to leave. But you are still here."
  • "Go ahead. Do you have questions about the Nerevarine prophecies? Have you come to see if you pass the test? Do you think you are the Nerevarine?" -During Meet Sul-Matuul
