Hasphat Antabolis is an Imperial Drillmaster with the Fighters Guild in Balmora. He thinks of himself as a scholar and as such is particularly interested in Dwemer Ruins and artifacts. Hence he is also the author of Dwemer History and Culture which appears in both Oblivion and Skyrim.
Having lived in Morrowind all his life and having talked a lot to backcountry mercenaries, he knows a lot about the country and its natives. Also because of that, Antabolis is quite knowledgeable on the subject of the Nerevarine Cult, and is the author of the book, Life and Times of the Nerevarine.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]
Disappearance of the Dwarves "The disappearance of the Dwarves predates Imperial written records; Dunmer oral accounts record that the Dwemer were utterly destroyed by the gods for profane practices and impiety. Dwarven ruins are scattered across Tamriel, and weapons, armor, housewares, coins, and other items of Dwemer design are often found, but the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the Dwarves remains one of Tamriel's greatest mysteries."
Morrowind history "I won't bore you blathering about history. That's what Caius is for. But if you're really interested, try 'On Morrowind, the Imperial Province', by Erramanwe of Sunhold. I have an extra copy you can have. What an adventurer like you REALLY needs is a sense of current events. Who hates who? Where's trouble brewing? That's where opportunity lies for an outlander like you."
- current events "The Great Houses hate each other -- theft, murder, assassination, secret raids, standard stuff. The Temple is trying to kill off a rebellious faction called the Dissident priests. Ashlander nomads raid each other, attack traders and pilgrims. A secret cult is killing off Imperial citizens. All bad enough. The real problem, though, is the Blight. Monsters and diseases. The natives say it comes from Red Mountain. It's been a local problem for years, but lately it's gotten badly out of control."

"Good day,. So you're with Caius, eh? And Caius wants information? Of course, there's a this-for-that involved. I require a favor first, and then I'll tell you what you want to know."
After finding the cube:
"So. Have you done that favor I asked?"
When approached again after completion of the quest:
"Hello again,. What do you want? You already gave me the Dwener puzzle box. Don't you remember?"

Divine Metaphysics "I cannot read the Dwemer language, nor do I know anyone alive who can. Dwemer scholars have long been looking for a translation key. It is said that some of the oldest Telvanni have somehow learned the Dwemer language, but these may only be rumors."
Egg of Time "I cannot read and write Dwemer myself, but this is a truly interesting find."
