|Faction||Cult of Vaermina|
Helping Erandur battle through Nightcaller Temple in search of the Skull of Corruption, the Dragonborn is blocked by Veren, who labels Erandur, a former priest of Vaermina, a traitor. He immediately becomes hostile and attacks the two on sight.
- Because Veren is hostile and must be fought, he is a useful candidate for the Dunmer blood needed to help Septimus Signus open the Dwarven Mechanism in the quest Discerning the Transmundane.
