Desele's Debt is a Fighters Guild quest in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

  1. Receive task from Eydis Fire-Eye at the Balmora Fighters Guild.
  2. Head to Desele's House of Earthly Delights in Suran.
  3. Persuade Helviane Desele to pay off her debt.
  4. Return the gold to Eydis.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Head to the Fighters Guild and speak with the guildmaster. She will assign the task of collecting a debt from a shopkeeper. Go to Desele's House of Earthly Delights in Suran and find Helviane (usually tending bar). Persuade her to pay off her debt. Return to Edyis for the reward.

Another alternative is for the Nerevarine to pay the debt instead of forcing Helviane Desele to pay what is, in actuality, "protection" extortion money from Orvas Dren's Camonna Tong employee, Manos Othreleth. This alternative is suggested by the honorable Percius Mercius.

Yet another alternative is to kill Manos Othreleth and loot his corpse for goods worth much more than the 200 Gold "owed." Killing him may be done without legal or quest ramifications.

A less violent option is to loot the Dren Plantation, or even pickpocket Orvas Dren himself (he carries more than enough drakes to cover the debt).

Eydis Fire-Eye will consider the quest requirements met regardless if how the Nerevarine obtained the 200 Gold, and will reward 100 of it.
