"The trees... they're beautiful here. Reminds me of autumn at home."

Valindor is a Bosmer who lives in Riften and works at the Riften Fishery.


He describes how he remembers Valenwood looking, because the Riften trees remind him of autumn in Valenwood. He, like most people of Riften, is tired of Riften's corruption by Maven Black-Briar and wants to leave.


New AllegiancesEdit

In Dawnguard, Valindor is a possible target during the quest "New Allegiances," in which Vingalmo, courtier in Castle Volkihar, asks the Dragonborn to turn the target into a vampire for political purposes.


Hard work is relaxing workEdit

Svana: "How do you do it, Valindor? How do you work at Black-Briar Meadery and the Fishery without getting exhausted?"
Valindor: "Oh, it's not so terrible. I actually find the work quite relaxing."
Svana: "Relaxing? They must be working you to the bone! You should rest before you do yourself in."
Valindor: "Not to worry, dear Svana. I promise you I can handle it, but your concern is quite flattering."
