While there, a beggar began pestering him daily and soon Casimir let his temper get the best of him. He struck the beggar out of anger and killed him, right in the Chapel of the God of Mercy. He was cursed by Stendarr and the Gauntlets fell off of his hands and became impossible to move. The curse left Casimir tired and weak, a curse that has followed his family to this day.
"I know where you may find the Gauntlets of the Crusader, for I was the one who lost them. Though many know where they are, they are still lost. I believe there is something you must do in order to retrieve them. Would you listen to my tale, and learn of the Gauntlets' fate?"
Please, tell me."When the order fractured, I followed Sir Berich into war, taking the Gauntlets with me. When it was over, I returned to Cyrodiil. I attempted to return to the service of the Nine, but the war had changed me. I no longer had sympathy for the weak, or pity for the suffering. In the brief time I was there, I did more to hurt the Chapel than help it. It was there that I was cursed."
Cursed? What do you mean?"A beggar who came to the Chapel each day for help tried my patience one too many times. I lost my temper, and struck him. My blow landed harder than I had intended, and he fell to the floor, dead. Killed in the very Chapel of the God of Mercy. I left the Chapel at once, of course, but the damage was done. I was weak, constantly weary, and lacked the energy to do almost anything."
What about the Gauntlets?"Ah, yes. As proof of the deed, when I struck the poor man the Gauntlets slipped right off my hands and fell to the floor. Heavy as stone, they would not move. None could lift them. I suspect they lie there still, in Chorrol's Chapel. You must prove to Stendarr you are worthy to lift the Gauntlets once more. Seek out the priests in Chorrol. Perhaps they can help you.
Get to the point."Your attitude does not bode well. Nevertheless, you may yet succeed where I failed. I failed to show mercy, and Stendarr cursed me for it. Right my wrongs, show mercy where it is needed, and Stendarr may grant you the Gauntlets. Seek out the Chapel of Stendarr in Chorrol. The priests there can assist you."
Not now. Perhaps some other time."As you wish."
"May the Nine guide your way."
If approached again:
"Seek out the priests in the Chapel of Stendarr. They may be able to help you retrieve the Gauntlets I lost so many years ago."
Boots of the Crusader"When Sir Juncan died while questing after the Boots, I mourned his loss. Now, I wonder if perhaps it was a mercy that he left us when he did."
Curse"It was placed on me for defying the teachings of Stendarr in his very Chapel. My entire lineage was ruined by this curse. Whether it is connected to the fate of the Gauntlets, I do not know."
Gauntlets of the Crusader"I have no doubt that they still lie within the Chapel of Stendarr in Chorrol. No mortal man could lift them."
Knights of the Nine"We had only the best of intentions. Truly, we did. We only meant to serve the Nine and the Empire. It's hard to believe it all went so wrong."
Mace of Zenithar"Sir Ralvas requested for the Mace after Sir Berich's betrayal. He believed that with the Mace, he would be able to bring the rest of us together. He stayed at the Chapel of Leyawiin for months, attempting the test over and over. He hardly ate. Hardly slept. In the end, he failed. He left the chapel broken and beaten. Sir Amiel found his body and laid him to rest here at the Priory."
Mace of Zenithar (After retrieving the Mace)"You've passed Zenithar's challenge and redeemed Sir Ralvas. Caongratulations. Sir Juncan will be pleased to hear this."
