Sapiarch is an Altmer in Summerset. He can be found along with two of his Assistants at one of their possible locations.


"It seems I am not only beset upon by my own indolent assistants, but by the curiosity of the passing wagrants as well."

What's goind on here? "A research excercise that needs to be concluded. As soon as possible, as well as possible, and with as few distractions as possible. Given the assistants I must work with, my goal can only be attained with strict motivation."
It seems like you're bullying your assistants. "Did I give the impression that I was soliciting input? I am not. My research funding depends on these results, delivered in a timely fashion. If bullying my assistants means my research is funded, so be it."
If I offered some funds, would you work them less? [693 GoldIcon] "Oh! Yes, I think these funds will be sufficient for my research to continue, even without aid to the College. Perhaps my, ah, examplary assistants might take a moment to relax."
[Intimidate] I can give you five reasons to treat them better. "Five reasons? Why, that's awfully specific—oh. I see what you mean. Ehm. Very well. My assistants can take a reprieve."
I can't argue with that logic. "Well, I'm pleased to have earned the approval of a random passers-by. Now, if you'll allow me to get back to my job."


Upon encountering them:

Sapiarch: "Are you purposefully doing a poor job? Because I can come to no other conclusion!" OR "I expected more from you, even if you are a novice. What did I sponsor you for?"
Female Assistant: "This is absurd. No one can meet this standards, not even you!" OR "Oh sure, blame us! When you're the reason we're in this mess."

If the female assistant was Persuaded to join the Mages Guild:

Female Assistant: "To Oblivion with this work! I will take part in it no longer!"
Sapiarch: "What are you—wait! Return this instant!"


If he was intimidated:

  • "Eh—excuse me! I have been induced—rather, enlightened—by this, ah, kind individual to permit a cessation of labor. Please do so!" – To his assistants
  • "You can be rest assured that my assistants will be well looked-after. No need to do anything rash!" – In the dialogue window

If his research was funded:

  • "Attention! Thanks to my securing of additional funds, you may now take a reprieve! Stop work immediately!" – To his assistants
  • "Your patronage of my research shows examplary moral character. You have my thanks." – In the dialogue window

If the female assistant has left for the Mages Guild:

  • "You induced one of my assistants to leave? How dare you! The sheer presumptuousness of your actions is just—gah! I can't believe this!"
