Kagouti Den is a House Redoran quest available to the Nerevarine during the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.


I heard there's been another problem along the Gnisis-Ald'ruhn caravan track. Kagouti have been attacking travelers between Ald'ruhn and Gnisis. I need someone to find this Kagouti Den.



Having dealt with the issue at the Ashimanu Egg Mine, Theldyn Virith, upon the Nerevarine's return, informs them that a group of Kagouti has been bothering travelers going between Gnisis and Ald'ruhn. The Nerevarine is tasked with killing the leader of the pack of Kagouti, found at a crossroad between Ald'ruhn and Gnisis.

Kagouti Hunting[]

The Nerevarine must first head to Gnisis, where upon they may follow the road to Ald'ruhn. At the crossroad near to the Ashimanu Egg Mine a Kagouti will be found on the road. This Kagouti is the pack leader and will attack the Nerevarine when it spots them. Having killed this Kagouti the Nerevarine is free to return to Theldyn Virith, although a little extra hunting will reveal the actual den a little way from the road.

10 Theldyn Virith told me that Kagouti have been attacking traders between Ald'ruhn and Gnisis. Theldyn Virith believes there must be a Kagouti den just south of the Ouada Samsi. He asked me to find and kill the pack leader.
  • Quest accepted
 100  Theldyn Virith thanked me for killing the Kagouti pack leader.
  • Quest complete


  • It is quite possible that, during the previous Theldyn Virith quest, Ashimanu Mine, the Nerevarine will have already encountered the Kagouti.
    • Theldyn will recognise this fact almost immediately, stating that "If I hear more i'll let you know."
  • The actual den of Kagouti will also contain a chest.
    • The Nerevarine does not need to kill the Kagouti in the den, only the pack leader (on the road).
