"Say, you look very familiar. Aren't you...um...oh, it's on the tip of my tongue!"
―Junius the Elder[src]

Junius the Elder is an elderly Imperial who can be found in the Town. He is the first citizen to speak with the Fugitive, and offers them the first quests.

InteractionsEdit

Rescuing the TownsfolkEdit

The Fugitive arrives in the town to find it up in ruins. Junius tasks them with rescuing the townsfolk and bringing them back.

Rebuilding the Town HallEdit

With part of the townsfolk safely back in town, Junius proposes to rebuild the Town Hall as a means of shelter and storage.

Lumber RunEdit

To continue rebuilding the town, it requires resources. Junius proposes the Fugitive goes to the nearby woods to find the woodcutters and gather some lumber.

Rebuilding the SmithyEdit

With the woodcutters rescued from a Spriggan attack, the Fugitive arrives back in town. It is proposes that they help Lond, the local blacksmith, with rebuilding his smithy.

The Greencap BanditsEdit

After speaking with their old mentor, the Fugitive returns to Junius, who tasks them with dealing with a number of problematic bandits in the area.

Hidden MysteriesEdit

After rescuing the townsfolk and the Loremaster Saashi, Junius informs the Fugitive of the tunnels found by some townsfolk at the Founder's statue, and asks them to work alongside Saashi to find out what they are related to.

The Bloodfall QueenEdit

[?]

The Founder's StatueEdit

Junius has to be informed about rebuilding the Founder's statue.

DialogueEdit

"Did you want to talk about something else?"

I have questions about this town. "What do you want to know?"
Where is the mayor? "Sadly, he perished in the town fire. He was also the town magistrate... I suppose the Queen will have to settle disputes until we find another one."
How can this town regain its former glory? "Well, building more houses always help to bring back the townsfolk... I guess adding some more decorations around town wouldn't hurt."
Let's talk about something else.
What do you know about the River Snake? (Only after completion of "The Farmer's Plea") "I've heard that name before... Isn't he some sort of criminal? I'm sorry, I don't really know anything about him."
Who is the Bloodfall Queen? "Urzoga gra-Batul. She's the Imperial vassal who rules over our small portion of the realm. Since she inherited her grandfather's throne years ago, we've had nothing but trouble from her."
Didn't the Bloodfall King have a son? "Yes, he did. Barzul was his name, but the king preferred Barzul's daughter as his successor."
Do you know why? "The Bloodfall King named him as regent when he left for the great war."
That sounds like a bad idea. "It was. Barzul gro-Batul was a fearsome warrior, but a terrible ruler. Summary executions became commonplace, even for petty crimes. The people were terrified of him! When the king returned he was so furious he disinherited Barzul and named Urzoga as his successor."
I assume Barzul wasn't happy with that... "He wasn't. His daughter had become his rival. He must have felt humiliated. He's tried to assassinate her at least once. As bad as the Queen may be, she's still a much better alternative."
I don't really care about that.
We can talk about this later.
Let's talk about the Bloodfall Queen. "Queen Urzoga? What did you want to know?"
What's the story with her father? "The king kept trying to groom him for the throne, but that didn't go well."
What happened? "The Bloodfall King named him as regent when he left for the great war."
That sounds like a bad idea. "It was. Barzul gro-Batul was a fearsome warrior, but a terrible ruler. Summary executions became commonplace, even for petty crimes. The people were terrified of him! When the king returned he was so furious he disinherited Barzul and named Urzoga as his successor."
I assume Barzul wasn't happy with that... "He wasn't. His daughter had become his rival. He must have felt humiliated. He's tried to assassinate her at least once. As bad as the Queen may be, she's still a much better alternative."
Enough about him for now.
How long has she been Queen? "Let's see...the Great War ended five years ago, and the Bloodfall King died about six months after returning, so... His granddaughter has been sitting on the throne for four years now... And bleeding us dry ever since. I guess things could be worse... Her father could be sitting on the throne!"
Let's talk about something else.
Not right now. "Farewell."
Show: Rescuing the Townsfolk

"Say, you look very familiar. Aren't you...um...oh, it's on the tip of my tongue! But of course, it's you! Little Fugitive (Player name)!"

No one's called me "little" in a very long time... "It's been so long. Some were convinced you were dead..."
I joined the Imperial Legion. "With all this fighting, I imagine you must have seen some terrible things."
Seen some, done even worse. "War can make monsters of the best of us. Redemption can be a long, torturous road."
It's all in the past now. "You're right. We must focus on the future if we are to move past this."
I went out looking for adventure. "I wish I had done so when I had the chance... Now all I have is this town...or what's left of it."

"In any case, it's good that you're back. We need you. I'm sure you have lots of questions for old Junius..."

What happened here? "The Bloodfall Queen sent mercenaries to collect taxes from the townsfolk. Things escalated, and one of the men smashed the ancient statue of the town's founder. At that point, all Oblivion broke loose... We heard thunder, though the sky was clear, and green fire erupted from where the statue stood. The flames spread uncontrollably, and most of the town was destroyed. My heart aches at what little is left."
Where is everyone? "A few people fled town when the Queen's men first arrived. Others stayed, but were captured by the mercenaries, or were killed."
The Bloodfall Queen? Who is she? "Urzoga gra-Batul. She's the Imperial vassal who rules over our small portion of the realm. Since she inherited her grandfather's throne years ago, we've had nothing but trouble from her."
What do you need me to do? "Rumor has it some townsfolk took refuge in the abandoned Highwinter Castle. Goblins have been seen in that area. I fear our people may have been made prisoner, or worse... Please, you may be the only one here with any chance of bringing them home."
I'll bring them back. "Here, take some Healing Potions. They're more useful to you than they are to me. Best of luck, Fugitive (Player name)."
I'm only one person... "That is true. But if you don't go... Who will? Here, take some Healing Potions. They're more useful to you than they are to me. Best of luck, Fugitive (Player name)."

If spoken to afterwards:

"I hate to think of what our people might be going through, imprisoned in Highwater Castle..."

All right, I'll rescue them. "Best of luck, Fugitive (Player name)."
I'm sure they're fine. "You really think so?"
Show: Rebuilding the Town Hall

"You did it. I knew we could count on you. It's good to see people returning, but now we need to take care of the town itself. We should start with the Town Hall, right here. It can serve as a shelter until more houses are rebuilt, and to store building materials. Ready to help rebuild the Town Hall?"

Just tell me what to do. "As it happens, you found enough lumber when you rescued those townsfolk. We have some Limestone and Copper left, too. All together, that should be enough to rebuild the Town Hall."
That sounds like a lot of work. "[?]"
Show: Lumber Run

"Thank you for helping to rebuild our Town Hall. Hopefully this will convince more people to come back... Now, what to do next..."

Can we get more materials? "We're going to need more materials if we're to rebuild the rest of the town. There are some woodcutters who live in Woodhaven Forest, to the West. I haven't heard from them in a while. If you can contact them, they may be able to provide some lumber. Are you able to secure some lumber for the town? Are you able to secure some lumber for the town?"
If you think it'll help. "Look for Varro and Jena Matius. They should be able to help you with the wood we need."
Maybe later. "[?]"
Is there anything else to build? "[?]"
Show: Rebuilding the Smithy

"I guess this simple errand turned out to be more dangerous than expected. Good thing you're so quick on your feet! I heard you rescued the town's blacksmith. I'm so grateful. He can help us greatly by forging weapons and armor. You should go see if you can help him rebuild his smithy."

Sounds like a plan. "Excellent! He's right there behind you, where his old smithy used to be. Take care, now."
I don't see why I should bother. "[?]"

If approached again:

"Have you found the blacksmith yet? He'll tell you what you need to do."

Show: The Greencap Bandits

"I saw the new Smithy. It's a bit small, but it'll do. We can always improve it when we get more materials. Other people may also need help. Check out the job board near the Town Hall when you have time. The woodcutters said that villagers may be held captive in Deadbrook Hollow. That place has long been known as a hideout used by the Greencap Bandits. I fear they may have taken advantage of the chaos and kidnapped our townsfolk. It's probably worth looking into."

I'm on my way. "Watch our for those bandits!"
Seems like a waste of time. "[?]"
Show: Hidden Mysteries

"You brought our people back, safe and sound. We are in your debt, Fugitive (Player name). I'm truly grateful to you for rescuing Saashi. She's been like a daughter to me. No one has ever shared my love for this town and its history as she does. She was studying the Founder's statue in the town square when we were attacked. I didn't dare think of what might have happened to her. That reminds me. Some of the villagers found what appear to be tunnels under the ruins of the statue. You should go tell Saashi about the tunnels. I'm sure she'll be intrigued."

If approached again:

"Thank you again for rescuing Saashi. You should tell her about the tunnels discovered under what's left of the founder's statue."

Show: The Bloodfall Queen

"Saashi told me of what you discovered beneath the town's statue. We all knew it was old, but I'd never have dreamed it could date back to the First Era. Could there be a link between what you've found, and the recent undead sightings?"

It's possible. "As if we weren't suffering enough with the Bloodfall Queen's men hounding us. Do you think you could speak to her? Find a way to placate her?"
I'll get her to leave us alone. "Thank the Divines for you, Fugitive (Player name)."
I'm not sure that's the best use of my time. "I think it would help, but it's your decision."

If refused at first:

"We can't hope to deal with both the undead and the Bloodfall Queen's mercenaries. Do you think you could speak to her? Find a way to placate her?"

After speaking to the Queen:

"So, did you talk to the Queen? How did it go?"

We made a deal. "You did? What did you offer her?"
My help fighting her enemies. "Well done, Fugitive (Player name). I knew you'd settle the matter. We can all breathe a little easier now that you've convinced the Queen to back off. Saashi tells me she managed to translate the tablets you found. You should consult her. She seemed very excited. Farewell, Fugitive (Player name)."
Show: The Forbidden Divine

"Is something troubling you?"

The Thalmor want to arrest adepts of Talos in town. "What? Can't they just leave people be?"
They don't seem to think so. "Curse those fiends! Curse them all to Oblivion. You need to warn the villagers before they're caught."
Do you know where to find them? "I truly wish I did."

If approached again:

"You have to warn those worshippers before the Thalmor reach them."

Show: The Freedom to Believe

"Were you able to warn the Talos worshippers in time?"

I did. "Praise the divines! Don't worry, I won't tell the Thalmor!"
Show: A Friend in Need

"Is it true? The Thalmor have left town?"

It's true, they're gone. "Well, that's good news, isn't it? Did they find the criminal they were looking for?"
It was Henrik. They killed him. "Henrik? Truly? But how is that possible... He spent his days in the Arena. The Thalmor must have made a mistake."
I think so too... "Henrik... I can't believe it. Thank you for telling me"
At least they're gone now. "I worry they'll be back. They always seem to come back... Poor Henrik."
Show: The Founder's Statue

"Saashi says you got information from the Sorcerer-King's brother's ghost. You continue to impress! So I understand we'll need to rebuild the statue in the town square. I have an old scale model to use as a reference. Finding all the marble we'll need in the construction, that'll be the hard part.

If approached again:

"I look forward to seeing the statue fully rebuilt. Do you need to go over what you have to do next?"

Where should I start? "First, we need to craft the statue at the Workshop, then place it in front of the Town Hall."
I think I got it. "Farewell."

After crafting the statue:

"It's perfect. Looks even better than before. Now all we need is to place it where the old one used to be, and then find the Varla Stones. Do you need to go over what you have to do next?"

Where do I need to place the statue again? "In front of the Town Hall, just where the old one used to be.
I think I got it. "Farewell."

After placing the statue:

"Have you found the Varla Stones we need? They're essential to rebuilding the statue."

Statue's in place. What else must I do? "You have to find the five Varla Stones and place them all in the statue's base."

After finding the Varla Stones:

"Have you found the Varla Stones? That means the statue can be completed. Do you need to go over what you have to do next?"

Statue's in place. What else must I do? "You have to place all five Varla Stones in its base."

After placing the Stones:

"It's... It's amazing. The statue looks better than it ever did. Now we'll just have to hope it will work when the time finally comes."

Show: Wrath of the Sorcerer-King

"I can't believe you really did it!"

You had doubts? "[?]"
I'm surprised, too. "You did well to overcome your fear. You are a wonderful hero. What will you do, now that it's over?"
Search for another threat. "There's always a shadow on the horizon, as they say. Just wait here. I'm sure trouble will find you soon enough! I only hope life can return to normal now that this plague of undead is finally over."
The town still needs fixing. "[?]"
Spend time in the Arena.
Explore the Abyss. "[?]"
Just doing my part. "[?]"

If approached again:

"You've done it, friend. You've saved us all! No one in this town will ever forget what you've done. Not even Greidil!"

If approached again:

"I only hope life can return to normal now that this plague of undead is finally over. And it's all thanks to you, Fugitive (Player name)."
