"Greetings. Did you know that I slept for exactly 237 minutes last night? I find that fascinating."

Orinthal quote

Orinthal is a Redguard assassin who resides in the city of Bliss, New Sheoth in the Shivering Isles.


Orinthal claims to have been a former assassin before ending up in the Shivering Isles. Now, he spends his time counting and gathering facts and numbers. He lives in the southern part of Bliss, next door to Thaedil. His house is filled with a large number of books and crumpled paper strewn all over his house. Other than the books, there is little of value.

Not much is known about Orinthal, Other than what he claims. He might have been a scholar due to his obsession with facts, and numbers, Though nothing is known about him that can be known as fact. It is unknown why he entered the Shivering Isles. Perhaps knowledge, perhaps he was telling the truth that he was an assassin, and that he was tracking a target.

He seems to have an obsession over triviality. It is likely a result of The Manic personality of The Shivering Isles. He has no major use in the game. He will continue to spread his apparent knowledge for as long as he lives.


  • If Orinthal dies, his tombstone in New Sheoth Graveyard will read, "Numbers matter no more, for Orinthal has found eternity."
