Show: Main Story

Kellen: "The Elder Scrolls show us what was, and what yet will be. And they have revealed much to me."
Isha: "Spare us your stories, old man, unless they can sharpen spears. Our warchief is dying. Our enemies are massing for another attack. We must prepare for battle."
Nagh: "We should go, Kellen. We have the scroll we came for, and this one smells blood in the wind."
Kellen: "Patience Nagh, I have words yet to speak here. Stories can do surprising things, spearmaiden, whether they are true or not. And this is one you should hear. It comes from the Great War that nearly ended the empire. It began when the High Elves slaughtered every Imperial Blade. Calling themselves the new Aldmeri Dominion, they and their allies swept through the land... even capturing the Imperial City itself. The emperor fled north, leaving Cyrodiil to the invaders. This is the story of a forgotten hero who changed the very course of history."

Show: Chapter 4 - Bandit Ambush

Kellen: "The Dremora's words unnerved the hero. They journeyed north to meet Laaneth, a sorceress friend of Tyr's well verse in Daeadric matters. But the road ahead was far from clear."
(Inside the story)
Bandit: "Look what we have here. Standard fee. Hand over your coin or you die."
Bandit 2: "This is our road. Nobody passes without paying a tribute."
Tyr: "We haven't got any money. As for taking our lives..."
Tyr: "We're outnumbered. Let's take some of them out before they overwhelm us."
(Outside the story)
Kellen: "The last bandit, seeing his fallen companions, dropped to his knees. He said that if the hero spared his life, he would show them where the robbers had hidden their ill-gotten treasure. But the merchant demanded justice."
Isha: "And what did your hero do?"

Kellen: "[?]" (If Execute was chosen) or "Mercy can be a profitable virtue. (If the Steel Scimitar was chosen)"
Show: Chapter 6 - The Hungry Pack

Kellen: "They chose to avoid the roads. But of course, the wilderness has its own dangers."
(Inside the story)
Tyr: "Keep your guard up, or these wolves will tear us apart from the shadows."
(Outside the story)
Kellen: "Once they dispatched the beasts, they heard a whimpering sound. Under a nearby bush lay a cowering wolf pup."
Isha: "Did they take it in?"

Kellen: "Yes. They believed it would grow into a strong companion. (If the pup was adopted)" or "[?]" (If the pup was abandoned)

Show: Fall of the Dark Brotherhood

Nagh: It is a dark night, Kellen. This one would have another story to fall asleep to. What became of your "Forgotten Hero"?
Kellen: I have only a dark tale for a night such as this. One with no heroes at all. It began when a mysterious merchant named Uther Nere sought to make the one you speak of his agent.


Kellen: "Drip, drip, drip. Memory melts. I've futilely tried to freeze what I can, but what is Forgotten cannot be recalled. Only drips, glimpses of stories untold, remain. Memory melts into legend, but legend never dies."
