Find the Heir is the third quest in the main questline of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, after "Deliver the Amulet." Now that the Amulet of Kings has been delivered to Jauffre, the Hero must find the only remaining heir to the throne, a priest named Martin. Jauffre says that he is currently the priest at the chapel in Kvatch.
Once at Kvatch, the city will be found in ruins. In front of the entrance is an Oblivion gate. Hirtel, a civilian, will run up to the Hero and say that Kvatch was destroyed by Daedra, and Martin is presumed to be dead. Some barricades and a few soldiers, including the Captain of the Kvatch Guard, Savlian Matius are in front of the Oblivion gate. He reveals that Martin is safe inside the chapel with a few remaining survivors.
Go into Daedra-infested Kvatch to the Chapel of Akatosh, and find him. However, he will not leave and let everyone else fend for themselves. Speak to Matius again. It becomes clear that the Oblivion gate must be destroyed to save Martin and the other survivors.
Inside the Oblivion GateEdit
Returning to realityEdit
Once the gate has been closed, speak to Matius and he will give the all clear to evacuate the Chapel of Akatosh for safety outside the city. Speak to Martin and he will follow the Hero outside Kvatch. If he is not spoken to, he will leave the chapel and must be found at the base camp. After speaking to him, bring him back to Jauffre at Weynon Priory.
