Not to be confused with Oraneth.
"You won't stop me. My Prince is coming, with an army that will end this war for the Altmer."
―Canonreeve Oraneth, upon entering battle[src]

Canonreeve Oraneth is a member of the Thalmor who believes the Altmer as a race is superior to the others and thus is against the presence of the Bosmer and the Khajiit in the Aldmeri Dominion.

After the rest of the Thalmor rejected her idea of overthrowing them, she retreated into Elden Hollow and recruited the help of the local Wood Orcs as bodyguards. She made a pact with Bogdan, allowing his forces into Nirn in exchange for help in the Alliance War. She is eventually killed while trying to conjure Daedra deep in Elden Hollow. However, she is successful at opening a portal into Bogdan's shadowy Daedric realm. The Vestige returns to Elden Hollow and destroys Bogdan, ending the Daedric invasion and undoing Oraneth's work.

Ancient Remains[edit | edit source]

Oraneth is fought at the end of this quest at the final altar. She manages to complete the ritual and attempts to collapse the earth around the Vestige and their party, regardless of their actions. Bakkhara opens a portal to take the others to safety while she runs into the growing darkness.

Pledge: Elden Hollow I[edit | edit source]

Oraneth must be defeated as part of this quest. Defeating her on hard mode (veteran only) gives 2 Undaunted Keys instead of 1.
