"Their fires lit up the night, all across Lake Rumare, like stars come to earth. It was beautiful, really."
―Salvianus[src]

Salvianus is a less-than-sane Imperial who can be found hidden away in the Ratway Warrens deep beneath Riften.

BackgroundEdit

On Salvianus' table is an Imperial Officer's Helmet which, when coupled with his name, the fact that he wears Imperial Light Boots, wields an Imperial Sword, has a set of Imperial Armor, and Imperial Bracers implies that he is a former officer in the Legion.

Listening to his quotes, it appears that Salvianus is a veteran of the Great War and was present during the Aldmeri Dominion's siege and capture of the Imperial City between 4E 173 and 174.

  • "Their fires lit up the night, all across Lake Rumare, like stars come to earth. *sigh* It was beautiful, really."
  • "They were golden, even when they were dead. But their blood was red. I knew it would be."

His reference to the medal he once had indicates that he was rewarded for his service in the Legion, but simultaneously, he wishes above all else to forget circumstances during which he earned the medal.

  • "I had a medal. It had someone's face on it. I threw it away after. It didn't help."

He has also either overheard or spoken with Esbern. He mentions how "he" says there is no hope, a frequent line of reason of Esbern's before realizing he is speaking to a Dragonborn.

QuotesEdit

  • He explained it all to me, before, when I still understood. I don't remember, but, I still know.
  • You don't think there's any hope, do you? I don't, he's right.
  • I had a medal. It had someone's face on it. I threw it away after. It didn't help.
  • I finally understand what it all means, what it was all for. The killing, then the dying.
  • He'll tell you, just ask. You don't even need to ask, he'll tell you anyway.
  • They were golden, even when they were dead. But their blood was red. I knew it would be.
  • *sigh* It's hopeless. He told me. He's right, you know?
  • Their fires lit up the night, all across Lake Rumare, like stars come to earth. *sigh* It was beautiful, really.

TriviaEdit

  • When the Thalmor break in the area and start attacking everyone, he will scream in a fearful rage: "No, you can't be here! I've already killed you over and over again!".
  • While uncomfirmed, it is likely that Salvianus suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a common affliction among war veterans.
