Telaendril is a Bosmer in the Dark Brotherhood. She serves the Night Mother faithfully and always carries out her contracts.

BackgroundEdit

Telaendril joined the Dark Brotherhood when her father had hired the Brotherhood to murder her. Somehow, she managed to escape from her would-be killer Lucien Lachance, and murdered her father instead.

She was then offered a chance to join the Brotherhood, which she accepted.

InteractionsEdit

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

The PurificationEdit

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

DialogueEdit

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

"Warmest welcomes to you. I am Telaendril. Wood Elf and loyal daughter of Sithis. I hope you find our Sanctuary to your liking."

Lucien "Actually, Lucien did not try to recruit me. Not at first. He tried to kill me. My father wanted me dead, and he hired the Dark Brotherhood to do it. I escaped from Lucien, and paid my father back for his treachery. Lucien came to me again that night with an offer I just couldn't refuse."
Night Mother "Our Lady is surely an ancient and powerful elf. Someday, when I am Listener of the Black Hand, I will look upon her beautiful and unholy form!"
Rumors "Oh, I shouldn't...well, all right. Gogron had a pet rabbit as a child! He petted the thing so hard he crushed its skull! Ha ha ha! What a brute!"
Sanctuary "In truth, I miss the towering elms of my native Valenwood. But I was banished from there, for deeds I don't care to discuss. This is my home now."
Sithis "Long ago, in age now forgotten, Sithis came to the Night Mother and begat her five sons. So you see, his love gave birth to the Dark Brotherhood."

"May your arrows always strike true!"

Show: Contract advice
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

A Watery Grave

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "Pirates, eh? They tend to be quick, and good with a blade, but don't favor armor. They're not fond of bows or spells either."

"May your arrows always strike true!"

Accidents Happen

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "Yes, you'll find that some jobs require you to terminate a mark in a specific way. It's well worth the trouble, considering how good the bonuses are."

Scheduled for Execution

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "This prisoner, why give him a chance to escape, or fight back? Pierce his heart with an arrow, right through the bars of the cell. Quick and easy."

"May your arrows always strike true!"

The Assassinated Man

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "Remember, timing is everything. You need to slash Motierre with the blade in Hides-His-Heart's presence, and then flee before the enforcer can react."

"May your arrows always strike true!"

The Lonely Wanderer

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "I'd never suggest you forfeit a bonus, of course, but killing Faelian indoors is so unappealing. Too bad you couldn't snipe him from a balcony. But first I guess you have to find him, right? The Elven races of the Imperial City are a community unto themselves. Ask them about Faelian."

"May your arrows always strike true!"

Bad Medicine

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "Ah, now this is the type of contract I live for! You must become pure shadow. It's as if you were never there, and then Roderick simply... dies."

"May your arrows always strike true!"

Whodunit?

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "Take your time with this one. Observe the other guests. Learn their schedules and behaviors, and strike each one when they're alone. Use your silver tongue. Try to befriend the guests, and then you may be able to lure them to their own dooms! Hahahahahaha!"

"May your arrows always strike true!"

Permanent Retirement

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "The Rose of Sithis! Such an honor! Just make sure your marksmanship is up to the task. If you miss the target, the enchantment will be wasted."

"May your arrows always strike true!"

The Purification

"Hello, Brother. It's good to see you again. The Night Mother has been smiling upon you, I hope."

Contract "Lachance has given you a... a secret assignment? But I've been asking for this chance for so long.... Surely he doesn't doubt my abilities!"

"May your arrows always strike true!"

ConversationsEdit

Welcome to the FamilyEdit

Gogron: "But why, Sister? What is the point? Why should anyone bother with all that sneaking and skulking?"
Telaendril: "My dear Gogron, you are a life-taker for the Dark Brotherhood! Our very existence relies on shadow and deception. Do you not value our secrets?"
Gogron: "Yes, yes, of course I value our secrets, and I have never betrayed them! But using stealth to kill.... It's just so... weak."
Telaendril: "But Brother, what of the contracts that require subtlety! You must at least strive to earn the bonuses that are offered?"
Gogron: "Bonuses? Ha ha ha ha ha! Useless, I say! Gold and magical trinkets are no substitute for the freedom to slaughter anyone I please, at any time!"
Telaendril: "Oh, Gogron! He he he he. Your methods may be crude, but your heart is always in the right place."
