Free Hides-His-Foot is a House Hlaalu quest available to the Nerevarine, if they joined House Hlaalu, in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It is the last of the line of quests given by Ilmeni Dren.



The slave of Dren PlantationEdit

Once J'Saddha is safely aboard the Fair Helas, the Nerevarine may return to Ilmeni Dren in her home in the St. Delyn Canton in Vivec. Dren will inform the Nerevarine that a slave, Hides-His-Foot, can be found at the Dren Plantation and requires assistance in order to be freed.

Freeing the slaveEdit

Hides-His-Foot can be found in the open grounds near the plantation. If the Nerevarine talks to him and commands him to follow, five guards will attack Hides-His-Foot. If the Nerevarine tries to defend Hides-His-Foot by attacking the guards, he will be expelled from House Hlaalu.

Hides-His-Foot can be defeated very quickly, so the Nerevarine must either be very quick in killing the guards, or ensure they do not attack. This may be achieved by using Command Humanoid spells like Command of the Third Corner:

  • Cast Command Humanoid on guards and lead them away from the location of Hides-His-Foot, or
  • Cast Command Humanoid on Hides-His-Foot, take him to the direction of Sterdecan's Farmhouse. After getting close enough to the farm, the Nerevarine can talk to Hides-His-Foot and instruct him to follow them instead.

Reaching the farmhouseEdit

Once instructed, Hides-His-Foot will follow the Nerevarine to Sterdecan's farmhouse, a little way northeast of the plantation. After passing the door to the farmhouse, Hides-His-Foot will be under the protection of the farmer and the Nerevarine will be able to return to Dren to complete the quest.
