On my way up to Dragonsreach to make use of Farengar's enchanting table, I happen to pass by Nazeem when going past the market. He of course greeted my with the usually banter, "Do you get to the cloud district very often? Oh, what am I saying, of course you don't". As I was walking away I thought, "Oh you insufferable fool, i'm on my way there right now". But as I continued to walk away I realized that he was still talking long after I had left the area. It was in this moment I realized, he wasn't talking to me. He was actually talking to himself, expressing his self loathing at how insignificant he really was. This made me rethink everything I had thought I knew about the man.
Poor Nazeem, so misunderstood.
