Teinaava is an Argonian and a senior member of the Dark Brotherhood's Cheydinhal Sanctuary. He and his twin sister, Ocheeva, are both Shadowscales, Argonians with The Shadow birthsign that are sent to the Dark Brotherhood to become assassins.

Both hold a grudge against Scar-Tail, who they, as well as the Royal Court of Argonia, want dead for being a traitor.

Early lifeEdit

Teinaava was born during the reign of Emperor Uriel Septim VII in the Imperial Province of Black Marsh, also known as Argonia. He and his twin sister, Ocheeva, were born with the Shadow as a birthsign and subsequently were enrolled in the ranks of the Shadowscale. He and his sister adapted quickly to the ways of the assassin.

They served the Royal Court of Argonia with honor and dignity and always completed their missions. During their time in Argonia, they befriended a fellow Shadowscale, Scar-Tail. Once they came of a certain age, they were transferred to the Dark Brotherhood.

Life within the BrotherhoodEdit

In the Brotherhood, Teinaava advanced quickly through the ranks, though not as quick as his sister, Ocheeva, until he reached the rank of Assassin. About the time he reached Assassin, a new family member was brought to the Sanctuary, and was quick to befriend the new assassin.

As time went by, he completed more missions, one involving killing a man and his escort of six Imperial Legion soldiers. As the Hero progressed, Teinaava gave them the task of killing the traitor, Scar-Tail, and for the Hero to bring him Scar-Tail's heart. Teinaava and all the other members of the Sanctuary were sent to the void of Sithis by the Hero during "The Purification."

Personality and traitsEdit

Teinaava was quite young when he was murdered during "The Purification." He had orange eyes like most Argonians and green and red scales. He was warm, friendly, and always helpful to his fellow family members. He was fully devoted to the Dark Brotherhood and Lucien Lachance, who was like a father to him.

InteractionsEdit

Like other members in the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary, he will give the Hero advice or ridicule them when asked about the current contract, depending on his disposition.

The Renegade ShadowscaleEdit

Teinaava will ask for the Hero's assistance to fulfill another duty outside of the Dark Brotherhood's affairs, to help him get rid of traitor Shadowscale, Scar-Tail.

The PurificationEdit

Teinaava is one of the members of the Cheydinhal Sanctuary who must be killed during this quest.

FateEdit

Teinaava was killed by the Hero alongside the rest of the members of the Cheydinhal Sanctuary during "The Purification." It was believed that one of its members had become a risk but it was unclear who. However, the traitor was not killed and somehow was overlooked as one of the possible risks.

DialogueEdit

Show: Welcome to the Family
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"I wish to welcome you to this Sanctuary, my newest Brother."
"I welcome you to our family, and this Sanctuary. May you find yourself at home here, in the loving embrace of our Lady the Night Mother."

Lucien Lachance "Ocheeva and I have known Lucien since we were hatchlings. He is the one who trained us in the way of the Shadowscale, and is like a father to us."
Night Mother "The Night Mother is the Dark Brotherhood's Unholy Matron. She guides our actions, just as the Dread Father Sithis once guided her."
Sanctuary "I've heard the Count of Cheydinhal knows about this Sanctuary. But he is offered much gold, as well as other... incentives to keep his mouth shut."
Shadowscales "In the Argonian homeland of Black Marsh, those born under the sign of the Shadow are taken at birth and presented to the Dark Brotherhood. A Shadowscale hatchling is trained in the arts of stealth and assassination, and lives a life in service to the mighty kingdom of Argonia. Any Shadowscale who lives to come of age is accepted into the Dark Brotherhood as a full member of the Family. So it was with myself, and Ocheeva."
Sithis "Who is Sithis, you ask? Some call him the Dread Father. It was his terrible love that gave birth to the Dark Brotherhood, so very long ago."

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

Show: The Renegade Shadowscale
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"Ah, dear friend, may I steal a moment of your time? I have a rather delicate situation I was hoping you could help me with. This is a personal matter, and will have no bearing on your standing within the Dark Brotherhood. Would you like to hear more?"

Not right now. Maybe later. "Very well. Speak to me later if you change your mind. I fear the issue will remain unresolved unless you can help."
Yes, tell me more. "I find your decision most agreeable! Now, the details. Far south of here, on the southern end of Cyrodiil, lies a swamp called Bogwater. Hiding in that swamp you will find an Argonian Shadowscale named Scar-Tail. Kill this renegade, and bring me his heart as proof of the deed."
Scar-Tail "When Ocheeva and I trained with the Dark Brotherhood as children, we befriended another initiate, a Shadowscale by the name of Scar-Tail. The three of us were inseperable. When our training was completed, we reluctantly parted ways. But now... Now, the unthinkable has happened! Scar-Tail has fled Black Marsh and refuses to fulfill his duties as royal assassin! This is an act of treason! This treachery must be punished! Just as a member of the Dark Brotherhood cannot kill a fellow family member, a Shadowscale is forbidden from slaying another Shadowscale. That is why you must go to Bogwater and eliminate that treacherous snake! Please kill Scar-Tail, so Ocheeva and I can put this matter behind us."

If approached again:

"You come speak with me, yet you do not bear Scar-Tail's heart. Please, you must slay that traitorous snake so Ocheeva and I can find peace!"

After returning with an Argonian Heart:

"Ha! Yes! That is an Argonian heart, of that I am sure! You have slain Scar-Tail! Well done! Please, take these boots as payment for your services. They are called the Boots of Bloody Bounding and carry a powerful enchantment. I'm sure you will find them most useful."

Scar-Tail "Scar-Tail was once as a brother to me and Ocheeva. But his act of treason destroyed any vestige of that relationship. His death was well-deserved!"
Show: Contract advice
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

A Watery Grave

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "The Marie Elena, you say? I've seen that ship. There's a unique balcony at the stern. My guess is it leads to the captain's cabin. Could be useful."

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

Accidents Happen

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "If the target is old and weak, as you say, then his manservant is sure to be quite the opposite. Best stay out of his way."

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

Scheduled for Execution

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "I know those sewers well. They will allow you acces to the prison, but are home to some fearsome creatures. Tread carefully."

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

The Assassinated Man

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "The enforcer will not appreciate your little show. He'll likely attack you on sight, but you must resist the urge to fight back!"

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

The Lonely Wanderer

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "I do so love pursuing a contract in the Imperial City! The alleys, the shadows, the challenge of evading Phillida's Legion troops! I envy you!"

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

Bad Medicine

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "Fort Sutch? I am familiar with that place. It is nestled deep within the mountains. It is naturally well defended, but there is a weakness. Not far from the ruins of Fort Sutch lie the ruins of a tower. That tower was once part of the Fort Sutch Abbey. The two ruins lie apart on the surface. But underground, they are connected by some now-flooded tunnels. Wet and dark, yes... but surely unguarded."

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

Whodunit?

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "Remember the pretenses under which the guests are there. They will be suspicious. You must be as effective an actor as you are a killer. You should dress appropriately. The Deceiver's Finery, your recent quest reward, would serve this purpose nicely. If you earned it, that is..."

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

Permanent Retirement

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "The Rose will only work if Phillida is unarmored. So, when would a soldier not wear his armor? I only take my armor off to sleep or swim..."

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."

The Purification

"It's good to see you again! I hope your contracts have been giving you much pleasure."

Contract "So, it's a secret contract then, is it? You must be moving up in the world. Congratulations."

"May you walk always in the Shadow of Sithis, dear Brother."
