Main article: Quests (Knights of the Nine)

Stendarr's Mercy is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls IV: Knights of the Nine. The Hero has accepted the call for a divine crusader and has been sent to locate the lost Relics of the Crusader. After finding the lost Priory of the Nine and the ghost of its former members, the Hero has discovered the whereabouts of the relics. They have traveled to Chorrol to recover the lost Gauntlets of the Crusader.


The Gauntlets were worn by Sir Casimir when he left for the War of the Red Diamond, when he returned he became without remorse for the weak. While he was at the Chapel he struck a beggar out of anger and killed him on the spot. The gauntlets fell of his hands on the spot and have remained unmovable since.


Chapel in ChorrolEdit

After speaking with Sir Casmir, the Hero sets out to Chorrol to recover the Gauntlets. Once they arrive they can speak to Areldur to gather more information about the gauntlets. They will also learn that the curse that fell on Casimir has effected his decedents, including Kellen, who has traveled from Hammerfell in the hopes he could find a way to lift the curse from his family and himself. After he failed to lift the gauntlets Areldur and the other priest allowed him to stay at the chapel and he now currently resides in the undercroft of the chapel.

Stendarr's Mercy Kellen


Talking to Kellen revels that he was in fact allowed to stay, but he believes it was more out of pity than kindness. Kellen will tell the Hero that whenever he talks to Areldur he see's pity in his eyes, something he has always seen and can easily spot. he believes that Areldur is hiding something and wants to know what and why.

Confronting AreldurEdit

Confronting Areldur causes him to confess. Areldur has always known how to lift the curse and has had the ability to do it, but has been to unwilling to do what it takes. In order to lift Kellen's family curse, somebody else must take the curse on themselves.

The Hero can tell Areldur they take on the curse, the shocked priest will explain that praying at the altar gives the Hero the means to lift the curse. After praying at the alter the Hero returns to Kellen and lift the curse. Kellen will become energetic the moment the spell is cast and will leap up from his bed and run around the under-croft. Then, he thanks the Hero and heads out into the world.

After leaving the undercroft Areldur is astonished that a stranger would be willing to lift Kellen's curse without a second thought and question why he calls himself a priest and is unwilling to truly help those in need. He will then leave the chapel to find a new calling.

At this point the Hero can pick up the gauntlets and complete the quest.


  • Kellen can be met from time to time on the road and that several inn's doted along Cyrodiil.
  • Areldur will head to the Priory of the Nine and ask to join the order so he may serve the Nine Divines.
  • The curse may be lifted after The Prophet grants The Blessing of Talos on the Hero.
