Zoe Malene is a Breton savant who resides in the Shivering Isles. She lives in a small settlement in Hale on the Mania side of the Isles, a village known for its artistic residents. Zoe has fallen in love with a Redguard named Pyke who came to the Isles after hearing about the gate and fearing for the safety of Cyrodiil.
Zoe's artistic life has lessened due to her lack of inspiration. She hopes that if Pyke where to return to his happy self, she would be able to paint a portrait of him.
