Pyke used to lived in Cheydinhal as a member of the knightly order ran by the Count's son, Farwil Indarys. One day, he heard about the opening of the gate leading to the isles and decided it was a threat to Cyrodiil and headed to the gate to face it. When he entered he began to explore and ended up being attacked by Grummite near Fetid Grove and Pyke's Medallion was stolen. After his attack he ended up in Hale and fell in love with Zoe Malene. After this he grew to love the Isles and decided that leaving Zoe would make him "the loneliest man alive."
When first meeting the Hero, Pyke will warmly greet them and ask if they might be kind enough to help him with a small crisis. He will explain that he wants to stay in Hale with Zoe, but would like to have his amulet back because it represents a large part of his old life. If the they agree to help he will mark the cave on their map and wish them luck.
Once the Hero returns Pyke will be overjoyed to have his amulet back and be grateful for the trouble by rewarding the Thorn Shield.
