Description[edit | edit source]

Geography[edit | edit source]

Sathil is located around a mile away up the beach. Crenellated towers rising from a promontory can be seen from a distance. The village does not have a dock as such, but a number of boats pulled up on the beach. The village has no more than twenty buildings, including an inn.

Sathil castle lies above a hill. From the castle, Sathil village looks tiny below. The walls of the castle are made of living rock for the first fifteen feet or so, and carefully fitted stone for another ten feet. The gate, is a thick wooden affair heavily banded with steel.[1]

Population[edit | edit source]

Most villagers are Nords, although there are a few Dunmer and some Khajiits working on the kitchens of the castle.

History[edit | edit source]

Fourth Era[edit | edit source]

Hleryn Sathil was allied with House Indoril, but in 4E 16 he declared himself independent from them and he moved to where the actual Sathil lies.

During the Umbriel Crisis, Attrebus and Sul visited Sathil searching for Umbra. The sword had possessed Elhul Sathil, Hleryn Sathil's son, and he was imprisoned in a magically protected cell under Sathil castle. Nirai Sathil allowed Attrebus and Sul to enter the cell in order to kill kill her brother, but she did not allow them to come out, fearing they would go mad after touching the sword.[2]
