Akorithi was a Redguard, and the Queen of the city-state of Sentinel in Hammerfell. She and her husband, Camaron of Sentinel, ruled a large swathe of land in northern Hammerfell. However, her husband was killed at the Battle of Cryngaine Field during the War for Betony, and she was forced to step down from her position as Queen of Sentinel. She produced two male heirs for Camaron, Greklith and Lhotun, as well as giving birth to their eldest child and daughter Aubk'i.
Sometime after the agent of Uriel Septim VII helped Prince Lhotun gain information about the eldest son of the royal family of Sentinel, he received a summons from Queen Akorithi. The Queen asked the agent to retrieve a painting from somewhere in Wayrest Castle. She claimed the painting was an heirloom of the now deceased King Lysandus of Daggerfall. The painting was somehow magical, the scene in the painting shifted and twisted. The agent clearly could see the inside of a tent. Several men in the livery of Wayrest were intensely arguing with a man bearing the coat of arms of Daggerfall. One of the Wayrest men slipped behind the Daggerfall man, drew a dagger, and casually slid it between his ribs. The image then disappeared as soon as the life ebbed from his body, and then started over again.
Queen Akorithi was one of the wielders of the Numidium. She was one of the seven retrievers of the Totem of Tiber Septim, a tool for controlling the Dwemer construct. Originally, there was only one Totem of Tiber Septim, but a strange time-warping effect known as the Warp in the West made all seven parties of the Iliac Bay receive the Totem.
Several years after the Warp of the West, a plague struck Sentinel. The plague took the Queen's life as well as Crown Prince Greklith's life, leaving the throne to Prince Lhotun.
Akorithi will ask the Agent to infiltrate Castle Wayrest and steal a painting from within its treasury.
The Agent can deliver Lord Woodborne's Private Journal VII to Akorithi. Doing so, however, will not lead to quest completion and grants no rewards.
- Painting the Truth
"! Welcome to Sentinel. I trust you have had a comfortable stay so far. Let me get right to the point. My son, Prince Lhotun, says you are a well respected and trusted . I have need of your sort. I am willing to pay you gold to infiltrate Castle Wayrest and recover an heirloom of the late King Lysandus for me. Will you do it?"
- Yes "What Bounty! There is an item, a painting, that is hidden somewhere within Castle Wayrest. I desire this item for reasons you need not worry about. Bring it to me and I will pay your gold."
- No "[?]"
Upon returning with the painting:
"Did you attempt to use the painting?"
- Yes "You presume much . What you saw is not for the prying eyes of the masses. It concerns matters of royalty and will be dealt with by royalty."
- No "Excellent. Its properties are inappropriate for those not of royal blood. You have shown yourself to be not only loyal, but also obedient."
- Lysandus' Revenge
"This means little to me. It is trash fit only for being burnt. Gothryd and Woodborne plotting to kill Lysandus. Really! Go away."
- Totem, Totem, Who Gets the Totem?
"The Totem of Tiber Septim! It is a priceless artifact. I shall guard it well and keep the rebellious powers of Daggerfall and Wayrest in check. Take your reward. You have earned it ten fold. You must keep your keen eyes open for the Mantella. Any rumors must be hunted down with vigor. Without the Mantella, the Totem is useless."
