"The orrery here is the only one in Cyrodiil. There's one more in Hammerfelll... the old one at Stros M'kai."

Bothiel is a Bosmer mage and astronomer residing in the Arcane University, where she takes care of the Orrery. She can usually be found in the Arch-Mage's Lobby.


Necromancer's MoonEdit

After locating the Necromancer's Moon at the Mystic Archives, the Hero of Kvatch brings it to Raminus Polus, who is interested in the celestial phenomenon called 'Shade of the Revenant.' He directs the Hero to Bothiel, an expert astronomer. While Bothiel has not heard of the phenomenon, she recalls Falcar seeking her out, asking about the very same topic. Leaving in a flurry of anger, he dropped a scrawled page, which mentions the Shade and where to locate it.

Repairing the Orrery*Edit

Upon entering the game, the Hero will receive a Note from Bothiel of the Mages Guild detailing a list of Dwarven artifacts that need to be recovered from bandits.

Necromancer's Moon

"Hello there. Is there something I can do for you?"

Necromancers "I've heard things, to be sure, but I don't really know anything about them. Is it true that some of our guildmates were killed? Oh, how horrible!"
Shade of the Revenant "Revenant, you say? And it represents something in the Heavens? It sounds familiar. Let me think... Ah, yes! Now I remember! Falcar was here some time ago, asking about just such a thing. Said it was for research. He had a large sheaf of notes with him about it. I'm afraid I didn't have any more advice for him than I do for you. With the Orrery in such a state of disrepair, I have no point of reference. Falcar did leave this behind; it think it fell from his notes as he left. I didn't pay it much attention, but perhaps it will be of use to you."
