She is not solicitous, and does not respond to cries for help from people nearby. Ardarume's fondness for reading is apparent by the substantial number of books on the table and bed in her living quarters. She also cares for a potted Black Anther and Fire Fern in her room.

Combat[edit | edit source]

When attacked Ardarume frequently begins combat by summoning a Clannfear to distract her opponent. She proceeds to absorb her adversary's Speed, followed by Personality. Ardarume is also fond of her Toxic Cloud poison spell and will cast it at least once, often followed by Drain Restoration to hamper her opponent's healing. When her Magicka has been depleted she resorts to melee combat with her Glass Dagger until either she or her opponent is dead.
