Kireth, are you alright? You can't expect me to go down there. You know I can't stand small spaces. Well, this is fortuitous. You'll never believe what my sister Kireth has gotten herself into this time. I swear, she does these things just to vex me.
Do you need help with something? Thank goodness you came by! My sister Kireth and I were surveying the area, trying to get the measure of this Dwarven ruin. I turned my back for a single moment and Kireth fell into that hole. Or jumped in, for all I know. It happened so fast.
At the end of the quest: "My sister tells me you found her. She immediately put you to work, didn't she? She's always been good at getting people to help her out. So tell me, what did she send you off to find? Some shiny bauble to add to her collection?"

Ah, there you are! You'll be on your way to Zthenganaz soon, yes? I'm sorry if I seem impatient. I'm just anxious to begin these new experiments in earnest. The last one was ... explosive. Don't look at me like that. You aren't my sister!
Excuse me? Right. Sorry. It's just my sister, Kireth. She blames me for everything. Is it my fault I turned our playpen into a spring-trap as a child? Of course not! And how was I to know increasing the exothermic output of our oven tenfold would be bad?

"Kireth's plan worked, just like she said it would. I'm really quite surprised. 'Just walk in and act like you belong,' she said. They even handed me a drink! I can't remember when I had such fun."
|Show: Honest Work|
"Ah, finally a turn of good fortune! You have a knack for arriving at just the right moment. You'll have no problem convincing these clods to hire us forthwith. Honestly, I'm extremely overqualified, but I'll take whatever employment you can secure."
If you were bound for Hammerfell, how did you end up in Anvil? "Hammerfell, Anvil - why does everything in this part of the world sounds like it belongs in a smithy? Look, it was an honest mistake on my part. The captain claimed to be a proper sailor and I took him at his word."
I could charter a ship for you. "We're dungeon-delvers, not paupers! Kireth and I won't accept charity, no matter how you present it to us. We'll earn our own way. Just find someone who's willing to hire us and let us do some honest work."
Any idea who might be interested in hiring you? "My letter of introduction opens doors throughout Morrowind, but this isolated hamlet? I inquired with the blacksmith, but he wanted brawn, not brains. There was also the angler, but we were unable to agree on terms."
After finding jobs for Kireth and Raynor:
"You took your time. I was starting to get worried. But tell me, were you successful? Have you secured gainful employment for Kireth and myself?"
I found jobs for both of you. You can start immediately. "Immediately? That seems rather sudden. Oh, very well. Kireth, did you hear? We can earn enough gold to continue our journey. It just requires someone these depraved pirates could understand. Oh, I don't mean to imply that you're depraved, my friend."
After talking to him again:
"I'm eager to learn what kind of position you secured for Kireth, but she should hear it from you first."
If talked to after talking to Kireth:
"Just a few more days of honest work and we're off to Sentinel. My sister and I really do appreciate everything you've done for us. And, I suppose, we've been stuck in worse places than Anvil."

"Just between us, the bank's ledgers are a total mess. Poorly organized, missing entries, handwriting I can't decipher - it makes me itchy just thinking about it! It's good you convinced them to hire me. I'll have these accounts balanced in to time!"
Did exploring Bthanual help advance your career? "Oh, devinitely! Once word that I perfected a working control rob started to spread, we began to receive offers from across the land. That's why we're going to Sentinel. A patron offered to fund our expedition of a newly discovered Dwemer ruin."
What happened with the memory orb we found in Mzulft? "Oh, you know how it is with discoveries such as these. It takes a lot of effort to produce any meaningful results. And Kireth usually leaves that kind of work to me."
I thought you and Kireth would've stayed in Wrothgar for a while. "Orsinium was an interesting city with a great museum, but it was time for us to move on. I know King Kurog did some terrible things, but I didn't feel right sticking around after he died. We were there at his invitation, after all."
