"I am Master Aryon of House Telvanni. What brings you here?"
―Aryon[src]
For other uses, see Aryon.

Master Aryon is a Dunmer Sorcerer residing in his chambers in the stronghold of Tel Vos. He is a councilor of House Telvanni, and is the appointed overseer of Tel Vos. Levitate is needed to reach him. His mouth is Galos Mathendis.

The guards describe Aryon as "half-Telvanni half-Imperial" like his city, which is a Telvanni mushroom growing out of a castle.

Aryon is the most open-minded master of House Telvanni and, because of this, the conservatives disfavor him. He is searching for new allies, as seen in Message from Master Aryon.

Aryon dislikes Archmagister Gothren because he is part of the conservative faction of House Telvanni, and will gladly suggest killing him in the Main Quest or during the final Telvanni quest.

BackgroundEdit

Aryon was an apprentice of Divayth Fyr, and later ascended to the rank of Master in House Telvanni.

Afterwords, he founded the city of Tel Vos near the village of Vos. The citizens of the village say that before Aryon came, they lived in fear and isolation. Aryon then built his new city in an old Imperial Fort, created a harbor and brought mercenary guards to the area. Because of this, he controls Tel Vos as much as Vos.

Aryon is the youngest Telvanni master, according to Master Baladas Demnevanni.

Greeting "I am Master Aryon of House Telvanni. What brings you here?"

Greeting "What brings you to Tel Vos, Nerevarine (Player name)?"

Greeting (being a member of House Telvanni) "What can I do for you, rank (Player rank in House Telvanni)?"

Greeting (if they have the rank of Archmagister in House Telvanni) "What brings the Archmagister here?"

Greeting (after the quest "The Path of the Incarnate") "I have heard of you, yes. You are the outlander who wishes to be the Telvanni Hortator."

Greeting (after the quest "The Path of the Incarnate," being a member of House Telvanni) "Yes, Nerevarine (Player name). I have heard you may want to be the Telvanni Hortator."

Archmagister Gothren "He is the current head of House Telvanni. He has held this position for many years. If you need to speak with him, you may find him in Tel Aruhn. If you have never been there, Tel Aruhn is west of Sadrith Mora. I will mark it on your map."

choose a Hortator "A Hortator is chosen by consensus. Everyone has to agree. A single 'no' is a veto. First a Great House has to choose a Hortator. Then that Hortator has to go persuade the other Great Houses to agree to name him Hortator of their houses, too."

Hlaalu Hortator (as a member of House Telvanni) "There are two men you should speak with. Orvas Dren at the Dren Plantation and Crassius Curio in Vivec."

Hlaalu Hortator (as a member of House Telvanni, after the quest "Hlaalu Hortator") "I heard that you were named Hortator by House Hlaalu."

Hortator's duty "A Hortator is a champion who leads by inspiration. He challenges opposing heroes in single combat. He goes on long, desperate quests. He goes alone into the citadels of the enemy. He confronts the dangers no one else in the House is strong enough... or courageous enough... to face."

Redoran Hortator (as a member of House Redoran) "I know little of House Redoran, but I have had dealings with Athyn Sarethi in the past. Perhaps you should speak with him first. He lives under Skar in Ald'ruhn."

Redoran Hortator (as a member of House Redoran, after the quest "Redoran Hortator") "Yes, I heard. You are the Hortator of House Redoran."

Show: Daedra Skin

Daedra skin "Have you brought me a Daedra skin? I will pay you 300 drakes for it."

Yes, here it is. "Excellent. Yes, this Daedra skin will serve my purpose. Take these 300 drakes. You know, Daedra skins if not properly prepared can causes paralysis, a useful effect in some circumstances. Perhaps you would like to paralyze your enemies..."
Teach me how to paralyze. "It is rather simple, actually. [Aryon teaches you the spell Paralyze.] This is a simple version of the spell. It is far more useful if you can cast it at a distance."
Nevermind. "Well, your choice, Nerevarine (Player name)."
Daedra skin "I do not need any more Daedra skins at the moment."
No, not yet. "I would not pay more than 300 drakes. For that price, I could go to an alchemist."
Show: Baladas Demnevanni

"What brings you to Tel Vos, Nerevarine (Player name)?"

patron "Yes, I will be your patron, but first you must convince Baladas Demnevanni to join the Council."
Baladas "Baladas Demnevanni is a reclusive member of House Telvanni. He lives in Arvs Delen just northwest of Gnisis."
join the Council "Yes, speak with Baladas Demnevanni and convince him to join the Council. With his support we can wrest control from the old, cautious, and unimaginative like Gothren and Neloth. Once you have convinced him, speak with me again and I will sponsor you in House Telvanni."

After having convinced Baladas:

"Have you convinced Baladas Demnevanni to join the Council?"

join the Council "Baladas will be joining the council, and, as we agreed, I will be your patron. Please accept this Silver Staff of Peace, the traditional patron's gift to his protege. You are now my Mouth in House Telvanni with all the duties and privileges of that rank."
Baladas "His support on the Council will be useful to us."
join the Council "Baladas is now on the Council. While I doubt he will participate as often as I would like, I expect we will have his vote on crucial issues."
patron "I am your patron."
Mouth "While other Councilors would insist that you stay in the Telvanni Council Hall day and night awaiting my decisions, I understand the insignificance of the daily business of the Council."
Show: Mudan-Mul Egg Mine

"What can I do for you, Spellwright?"

chores "I have heard that the Blight has infested the Mulan-Mul Egg Mine."
Mulan-Mul Egg Mine "The mine is due west of my tower here in Tel Vos, just a few minutes from here. There's also a shortcut if you go through the dungeons. The Kwama queen there has a blight disease. If you wish, I can teach you a spell of cure blight that you can cast on the queen."
Yes, teach me the spell. "It is a rather complicated spell. [Aryon teaches you a targeted cure blight spell.] You should understand the principle now. You will find this spell is much more efficient than most. If you want, you can also buy scrolls of cure blight from Hetman Abelmawia in Gnisis."
Mulan-Mul Egg Mine "Yes, I have taught you the spell. Now you just need to go find the queen and cure her of the blight."
Nevermind. "I trust you can already cast this spell, then. If not, speak with Hetman Abelmawia in Gnisis. He sells scrolls of cure blight."

After having cured the Queen:

"Is the blight cured in the Mulan-Mul egg mine?"

Mulan-Mul Egg Mine "So, the queen is no longer blighted? Very good work, Nerevarine (Player name). As your patron, I suppose I should give you some lessons. This book, though somewhat simplistic, has a good lesson on the school of Alteration."
Mulan-Mul Egg Mine "You have already cured the kwama queen."
Show: Wizard Spells

"What can I do for you, Spellwright?"

chores "I admire what you have accomplished in House Telvanni, but any student of mine must learn the rudimentary wizard spells."
wizard spells "Learn the rudimentary spell of Recall, a spell of flying, and a spell fire damage. I will recognize the standard spells such as Levitate, Great Levitate, or Wild Levitate. For fire damage, I would suggest Fireball, Greater Fireball, or Fire Storm. Spells you research yourself will not be sufficient."

After having learned the spells:

"Have you learned the rudimentary wizard spells?"

wizard spells "You have learned the rudimentary spells. I am proud to be your patron. For your next lesson, please take this book on War Magic by the legendary Zurin Arctus."
wizard spells "You have demonstrated your knowledge of the basic spells."
Show: Odirniran

"What can I do for you, Spellwright?"

chores "One of our fellow Telvanni, Milyn Faram, is being assaulted by member of House Hlaalu at Odirniran."
Odirniran "It is on Azura's coast, west of the shrine to Azura and south of the old Dwemer ruins of Nchurdamz. I will mark these ruins on your map. Go there and speak with Milyn Faram who is under attack by forces of House Hlaalu. He is probably making his last stand at the top of his tower."

After having intervened in Odirniran:

"Do you have news from Odirniran?"

Odirniran "Yes, the leader of the Hlaalu in Odirniran has been retired... Perhaps they will not be so hasty to oppose us next time."
Odirniran "You dealt with the problems in Odirniran."
Show: Mages Guild Monopoly

"What can I do for you, Spellwright?"

chores "Thanks to recent agreements with House Hlaalu, we have a chance of passing a resolution which would overturn the Mages Guild monopoly."
Mages Guild monopoly "According to one interpetation of the Armistice, only the Mages Guild can officially offer spells and training to non-members. Speak with the House Redoran Councilors in Ald'ruhn. If you can convince at least three Councilors, we will have enough support in the Grand Council. I would start with Athyn Sarethi, as he seems to be the most open-minded."

After convincing the councilors:

"Do we have enough support now to overturn the Mages Guild monopoly?"

Mages Guild monopoly "You have convinced at least three Councilors. This deserves a rewards. Perhaps you could use this glove. I enchanted it myself many years ago."
Mages Guild monopoly "You already convinced enough Councilors of House Redoran on this issue. Soon we will take it before the Grand Council."
Show: Shishi

"What can I do for you, Spellwright?"

chores "There is another Telvanni in trouble. I do not normally interfere with these matters, but I have taken an interest in this one. I need someone to stop the Redoran attack on Faves Andes in Shishi."
Shishi "Several Redoran have infiltrated Shishi and the Telvanni Faves Andes has gone into hiding. Shishi is a Velothi tower in the middle of the Foyada Bani-Dad northwest of Maar Gan. Leave Maar Gan, go east past the silt strider, then follow the Foyada north and west. If you cannot find Faves Andes, look for a skull on a desk, which opens a door to a secret storage space."

After clearing Shishi:

"Have you won the fight for House Telvanni in Shishi?"

Shishi "I am glad to hear that Faves Andes is safe. Perhaps this will keep House Redoran from making any other unwise decisions. Vvardenfell has plenty of land for all three Great Houses. I have prepared for you a Silver Staff of War, another tradition gift of House Telvanni."
Shishi "You have already ended the Redoran siege of Shishi."
Show: Recruit a Mouth

"What can I do for you, Spellwright?"

chores "If you wish to become a Wizard in House Telvanni, you must have someone to represent you in the Telvanni Council Hall. Find a promising Telvanni to be your Mouth."
Mouth "I have heard of a promising Telvanni in Balmora who might agree to be your Mouth, but I do not know more than this. Ask the other Telvanni if they know of someone who would agree to be you Mouth."

After recruiting a Mouth:

"Have you found someone who will be your Mouth?"

Mouth "You have found a Mouth to represent you on the Council. As your protege, Fast Eddie will do chores for you. I am pleased to see my own protege rise so quickly to the rank of Wizard in House Telvanni. Please accept this glove. It was one of my first successful enchantments."
Show: Kill Raynasa Rethan

"What can I do for you, Wizard?"

chores "The other Great Houses have also built strongholds without the Duke's charter. While we Telvanni can defend our holdings, the other Houses cannot. I want you to visit the Hlaalu Stronghold of Rethan Manor and retire the Hlaalu noble Raynasa Rethan."
Raynasa Rethan "Rethan Manor is on the Odai Plateau. Follow the Odai River south from Balmora and you will see it on your right. Go there and slay this young Hlaalu noble."

After killing Raynasa:

"Is Raynasa Rethan dead?"

Raynasa Rethan "So Raynasa Rethan is no more. You are a credit to your House, Nerevarine (Player name)."
Raynasa Rethan "A stronghold is no good without its master."
Show: Kill Banden Indarys

"What can I do for you, Wizard?"

chores "The Redoran Stronghold of Indarys Manor also deserves a visit from House Telvanni. Retire the young Redoran noble Banden Indarys."
Banden Indarys "Indarys Manor is built in Bal Isra, named after the rows of stones there. You can find it on the road from Ald'ruhn to Maar Gan. Go there and slay the Redoran Banden Indarys."

After killing Banden:

"Is Banden Indarys no longer a threat?"

Banden Indarys "So Banden Indarys is dead. The Redoran will not be so hasty to expand their territory now. You have done well, Nerevarine (Player name)."
Banden Indarys "Indarys Manor has no leader. The Redoran have been defeated."
Show: Archmagister Gothren

"What can I do for you, Wizard?"

chores "I am prepared to declare you Magister of House Telvanni."
Advancement "If you wish, I can declare you a Magister in House Telvanni. But you should be aware of what a Magister is and does."
Magister "I can grant you the rank of Master now. That will give you an equal place on the Telvanni Council. But if you aspire to a higher claim, I can also grant you the title of Magister. By accepting the title of Magister, you are announcing that you deserve the title of Archmagister more than Gothren who currently holds that rank. Which will it be?"
Grant me the title of Master. I have no plans of fighting Gothren. "Very well. I must admit I am surprised. I thought you would surely claim the title for yourself. You understand that if you choose the title of Master now, you can NEVER advance further in House Telvanni? You can never again make a claim for Archmagister?"
I understand. I shall remain a Master, and never seek advancement in House Telvanni again. "Very well, then. You are now raised to the rank of Master, and so you shall remain forever."
Advancement "You have chosen the title Magister, forgoing the chance to advance further in House Telvanni. But... have you changed your mind?"
Magister "You have foresworn the title of Magister... But perhaps you have changed your mind. Will you fight Archmagister Gothren and claim the title as your own?"
I have decided to fight Gothren. "You are now the Magister of House Telvanni. Defeat Gothren and you shall be the Archmagister."
chores "To become Archmagister you must win the support of all the active Telvanni Councilors. When you have their support, I can call a vote to see if you will win or if Gothren shall remain Archmagister. If you cannot get their votes, there is another way..."
Telvanni councillors "Here's a recent edition of the Brown Book of Great House Telvanni. It lists the current Telvanni councilors and their residences. Let me mark the locations of the councilor's towers on your map -- Tel Aruhn, Tel Vos, Tel Mora, Tel Branora. And Tel Naga is right in the center of Sadrith Mora."
Telvanni councillors "You should consult the recent edition of the Brown Book of Great House Telvanni. It lists the current Telvanni councilors and their residences. Let me mark the locations of the councilor's towers on your map -- Tel Aruhn, Tel Vos, Tel Mora, Tel Branora. And Tel Naga is right in the center of Sadrith Mora. And don't forget Baladas Demnevanni. He is a councilor of House Telvanni now as well."
No, not yet. "Take your time."
Let me think about this. "Take your time."
I will topple Gothren from his tower. Proclaim me Magister. "Good. I have long waited to see who the next Archmagister would be. I can think of no better qualified candidates. You have my support and that of the surviving councilors. Now you must dispose of Archmagister Gothren. You will find him in his tower in Tel Aruhn."
Advancement "You are now a Magister of House Telvanni. You must defeat Archmagister Gothren."
Magister "Once you have disposed of Archmagister Gothren, speak with me again."
I need to think about this. "Take your time."

After defeating Gothren:

"Is Gothren dead? Have you fulfilled your duty as Magister of House Telvanni."

Magister "You have the support of the other Councillors, and Gothren is dead. Congratulations, Archmagister Nerevarine (Player name)."
Magister "You are the new Archmagister of House Telvanni."

advancement "You are qualified for Wizard, but you must first build a stronghold."
stronghold "For matters regarding your tower, you should speak with Llunela Hleran at the Telvanni Council House in Sadrith Mora."
Llunela Hleran "She is in the Hermitage at the Telvanni Council House in Sadrith Mora."

After having learned of the first requirements of the stronghold:

"What can I do for you, Spellwright?"

strong souls "The souls of a summoned creature will work just as well. Just summon a storm atronach, cast soul trap on it, and dispatch it. Do this twice while carrying a powerful soul gem and give the gems to Llunela Hleran."

After having constructed the Stronghold:

Advancement "Yes, you have met all the requirements. You are now Wizard Nerevarine (Player name) of House Telvanni."

Show: Telvanni Hortator
In Tel Vos:

"I have heard of you, yes. You are the outlander who wishes to be the Telvanni Hortator."

Telvanni Hortator "A Hortator is a special champion and war leader chosen to lead a Great House in war. Why do you ask?"
Ask how a Hortator is chosen. "The Telvanni councilors would have to vote, and the vote would have to be unanimous."
Telvanni councilors "Here's a recent edition of the Brown Book of Great House Telvanni. It lists the current Telvanni councilors and their residences. Let me mark the locations of the councilor's towers on your map -- Tel Aruhn, Tel Vos, Tel Mora, Tel Branora. And Tel Naga is right in the center of Sadrith Mora."

Let me mark the locations of the councilor's towers on your map -- Tel Aruhn, Tel Vos, Tel Mora, Tel Branora. And Tel Naga is right in the center of Sadrith Mora."
Tell your story and ask to be confirmed as Hortator. (Nerevarine is female) "Yes, I understand. You are willing to take the responsibility, and I am willing to vote for you as Hortator. I think the other Telvanni councilors will also cooperate, though some might need a little persuading. Master Neloth is ill-tempered and Mistress Therana is losing her mind. You are not a male, so Mistress Dratha will like you. Archmagister Gothren is another problem. He will not refuse you directly, but will delay indefinitely. I recommend that you to kill Archmagister Gothren."

Master Neloth is ill-tempered, Mistress Dratha doesn't like men, and Mistress Therana is losing her mind. Archmagister Gothren is another problem. He will not refuse you directly, but will delay indefinitely. I recommend that you to kill Archmagister Gothren."
Master Neloth "He lives in Tel Naga, the tower in Sadrith Mora. He has a short temper, but he will listen to reason if you are persuasive enough. Do not expect him to be polite."
Mistress Dratha "Mistress Dratha is the oldest living Telvanni Councilor and is sustained by the necromantic arts. She dislikes men of all races, though I do not know why. You may find her in her tower in Tel Mora."
Mistress Therana "She has not aged well and becomes more eccentric every year. Her tower is in Tel Branora, which on Azura's Coast far to the southeast."
Archmagister Gothren "Archmagister Gothren never directly refuses request; he just delays indefinitely, never giving an answer. I don't know of any solution, other than killing Gothren. I'll tell you plainly. I stand to gain if Archmagister Gothren dies. I say this so you won't think I'm trying to trick you. My advice is till good. Gothern won't name you Hortator, but he'll never come out and say so. And in House Telvanni it is customary to settle disputes in this manner."

If approached again:

"So, have you gathered the votes of the other councilors?"

Telvanni Hortator "I have given you my own vote for Hortator of House Telvanni. But you must get the votes of all the surviving councilors."

After gathering the votes:

"So, have you gathered the votes of the other councilors?"

Telvanni Hortator "I see you've gathered the votes of all the surviving Telvanni councilors. That means you are now the Hortator of House Telvanni. And I have something for you. It's called the "Robe of the Hortator." It is an ancient artifact, and hasn't been used in centuries. But I think you'll be pleased. I wish you luck, Hortator. I may even pray for you."
Telvanni Hortator "I have given you the title of Hortator and the Robe of the Hortator. I wish you luck."

If approached again:

"What brings the Telvanni Hortator here?"
