"I am Lathon, squire to Sir Roderic of Wayrest. We are on a holy quest for the Crusader's Relics!"

Lathon (or Sir Lathon if knighted) is a Redguard, and is Sir Roderic's squire.


After acquiring the Relics (except for the Greaves and the Sword of the Crusader), Lathon will arrive at the Priory of the Nine to give the Hero the Greaves. He will explain that Sir Roderic had discovered the resting place of Sir Berich, who took the greaves and the Sword of the Crusader with him to war. When they arrived they were attacked by Berich's Wraith, now known as Lord Vlindrel. Sir Roderic sent Lathon away with the greaves while he held off the wraith.


After finishing the Knights of the Nine questline, Sir Lathon can be recruited as a follower, but it is possible for him to be killed while accompanying them. If this occurs, he will be replaced by a Knight of the Nine.



"I am Lathon, squire to Sir Roderic of Wayrest. We are on a holy quest for the Crusader's Relics!"

Crusader's Relics "Surely you've heard the stories of the Quest for the Crusader's Relics? Only a true knight can find them -- or even wield them. Sir Roderic will surely succeed, if anyone can."
Sir Roderic "Sir Roderic is a famous knight of Wayrest, in High Rock. He is too modest to tell you himself, but he was a hero of the War of Bend'r-Mahk."
Didn't Wayrest lose that war? "Well ... yes. But Sir Roderic won many battles all the same. I'm sure if we had more knights like him we would have beaten the Nords."
I'm sure he's a mighty warrior. "He is! I've been his squire for almost two years now. Soon I'll be ready to return to Totambu and become a Knight of the Scarab."


Show: The Faithful Squire
Inside the Priory of the Nine:

"Sir knight! Thank Arkay you're back. I have terrible news. Sir Roderic... I think he's dead."

Sir Roderic? Who's that? "My master. We met you on the Pilgrim's Way. Back when I thought for sure the gods had chosen him for a holy purpose."
What happened? "At first things were going well. He prayed at all the shrines, and received a vision. A disturbing vision. "The shade of Sir Berich spoke to me," was all he said. "We must put him to rest." We travelled back and forth across Colovia. He was always asking about an old noble family, the Vlindrels. Finally, he found what he was looking for. We went to Underpall Cave, and there... he fell."
I'm sure he died well. "He did. I owe him my life. He faced the evil wraith of Lord Vlindrel, and told me to run. And... I did. I know I should have stayed with him. Perhaps together we could have destroyed that evil thing..."
What was Sir Roderic looking for? "He said that Sir Berich's tomb was in Underpall Cave -- which is no cave, but some kind of burried keep. He had learned that Sir Berich had once been a questing knight, like us. He had found the Greaves and Sword of the Crusader, but then turned to evil. Sir Roderic hoped to find the Relics within Sir Berich's tomb. And he did. But we also found a terrible guardian -- the wraith of Lord Vlindrel -- Sir Berich."
You know where the Relics are? "Yes, my lord. And I brought you... Sir Roderic shouted for me to take them... the Greaves. The holy Relic. They're yours."
And the Sword? What happened to it? "The wraith. It used it against Sir Roderic. I don't know how that evil thing could use the holy weapon, but it did. It screamed as it struck..."
Take it easy. You're safe now. "I'm sorry. I remember Sir Roderic saying something about the Sword, before we went to Underpall... it may be important."
You were telling me about the Sword? "I'm sorry. I've already failed Sir Roderic once. I don't want to fail him again. I remember he said something about the Sword, before we..."
"He was worried that the Sword may have been turned to evil. That it may have to be reconsecrated on the altar of its creator, the divine Arkay. That's all I remember. I hope it may help you."
You did well, Lathon. "Thank you, sir knight. I would ask a boon, if I could, although I know I do not deserve it. Would you make me a Knight of the Nine? I want to dedicate myself to ridding the world of evil. I owe it to Sir Roderic."
I will avenge Sir Roderic. "Sir, might I ask a boon? Let me come with you. I would become a Knight of the Nine, and dedicate my life to the service of the gods."
Rise, Sir Lathon. "Thank you! I mean, thank you, Sir Knight. I will not fail you. Give me a moment to arm myself and I will accompany you to Underpall Cave to destroy the foul wraith."
"Let me arm myself, and I'll follow you to Underpall Cave to avenge Sir Roderic."
Not yet. You're not ready. "I... I understand. I'll be patient. I'll stay here and train every day until you decide I'm ready. I won't give up, I swear it."

If approached again if Lathon was refused:

"As I said, I'll work as long as it takes to be worthy to join the Order. Am I ready to become a Knight of the Nine?"

I accept. Welcome to the Order. "Thank you, Sir Knight! I will do my best to vindicate your faith in me. I must gather the equipment I need. I'll return shortly."
"Let me arm myself, and I'll follow you to Underpall Cave to avenge Sir Roderic."
You are not yet worthy. "I understand. I'm not ready yet. But I won't give up."
Greaves of the Crusader "Sir Roderic died so that I could bring you the Greaves. Use them to good purpose."
Sir Roderic "He told me to run, but I shouldn't have listened. I should have stayed and helped him. Maybe together we could hace defeated this wriath."
Sword of the Crusader "The wraith of Lord Vlindrel used the Sword against Sir Roderic. I don't know how it twisted the holy sword to its evil purpose."
Underpall Cave "It's not really a cave, but semed to be the buried ruins of an old keep. Sir Roderic believed that it used to be the ancestral seat of Lord Vlindrel, before some cataclysm buried it beneath the earth."

While following:

"I am at your command, sir knight."

Follow me. "Let's keep going to Underpall Cave."
Follow me. "Of course."
Follow me. "As you command. Although I don't think this is the way Sir Roderic and I came."
Follow me. "Don't worry. I'll stick close."
Wait here. "As you command. But you won't go into Underpall Cave without me, will you?"
Wait here. "I'll stay on guard until you return."
Wait here. "Don't be long. I'd rather we stick together."

After retrieving the Sword:

"Sir Roderic is avenged! And you have recovered the Sword of the Crusader! I'll return to the Priory and give my fellow knights teh good news. Farewell!"

When approached at the Priory:

"I am at your service, Commander."

Sir Roderic "Sir Roderic has been avenged. Thank you. I wish he could have lived to join the Order."
Sword of the Crusader "I'm glad to know that the Sword has been reclaimed for the work of the gods."
