"I sometimes forget the courage and vigor of the flesh. The years harden us—make us cold and suspicious. On behalf of my family, I beg your forgiveness."
―Dranoth Hleran[src]

Dranoth Hleran is a Dunmer Ashlander ancestral ghost haunting Hleran Ancestral Tomb on Vvardenfell. He is the slayer of Skar, the giant emperor crab whose shell now serves as the Ald'ruhn town-center.


Ancestral TiesEdit

If the Vestige enters Drelyth Hleran's family tomb, they will meet the forefather of the Hleran Family, Dranoth Hleran, who guides the Vestige to his final resting place and explains his story to them.


You're not forgotten. Your descendant, Drelyth Hleran, sent me. "Truly? The Hleran name survives? Then there is hope for our house after all. You must take my spear and deliver it to this Drelyth. As long as a member of my house carries that spear, the strength of the Hleran lives on."

I'll deliver the spear and your story. Do you want me to tell him anything else? "Yes. Tell him that Ald'ruhn was, is, and forever shall be our home. So long as my house lives in exile, the spirits that haunt this tomb shall never know peace. Drelyth must claim his share of this land."
The Ashlanders control Ald'ruhn. How should he stake his claim? "The children of ash may have forgotten our name, but they will not have forgotten that spear—the weapon that slew the great Emperor Crab. Their Wise Women and Farseers will know its power. If he brandishes the spear, they will listen."


  • "I am entrusting you with my family's most sacred relic. I pray that my faith in you is not misplaced. Give it to my descendant. Let the spear grant him the strength he needs to restore our house's honor." — During "Ancestral Ties"
