- "Good day stranger. Soris Arenim is my name."
- ―Soris Arenim
Soris Arenim is a Dunmer commoner and wizard who lives in the Talos Plaza District of the Imperial City with his wife Erissare Arenim. It seems that Soris has a penchant for mage's staves.
He is the central character in this Mages Guild quest. Ardaline's mage's staff must be bought or stolen from him and returned to Kud-Ei.
