"Ha ha! Don't hear that too often, but it's most welcome. If blood gets spilled here, it could destroy the fragile alliance holding together the Daggerfall Covenant." ―Sir Hughes
Sir Hughes is a Breton residing in Alcaire Keep in Alcaire Castle, Stormhaven. He is the current leader of the Knights of the Flame. He also serves as the protector of Duke Nathaniel and Duchess Lakana.
King Fahara'jad of Alik'r has sent an army to Alcaire Castle. They claim to be on a diplomatic mission, but the Knights of the Flame believe otherwise. This situation could threaten the very fabric of the Daggerfall Covenant.
Duchess Lakana needs someone to take a message to the leader of the Redguard camp outside the gates. Sir Hughes suggested the Vestige act as her messenger and report on what she reveals.
After murdering Duchess Lakana, Sir Hughes fled to
Firebrand Keep. The Vestige has come to confront him and if necessary, bring him to justice for his crimes.
The Vestige has the option to either spare Sir Hughes or exile him.
