Takes-In-Light was an Argonian sorceress who joined Atmah's expedition to the Labyrinthian. She appears during "The Staff of Magnus," the penultimate College of Winterhold quest.

Although she accompanied her fellow students to the Labyrinthian, she was not totally convinced it was an intelligent decision, worriedly asking Savos Aren before entering the crypt, "What...What if there are things guarding this place," only to be reconciled by Atmah, and said they could hold out against whatever may be within the fortress.

However, during one of the fights within the ruin, she became seriously wounded, and although she attempted to continue onward, she became the third to succumb to the Labyrinthian. The remaining mages initially refused to leave her, but nonetheless they continued on.


The Staff of MagnusEdit

Takes-In-Light's ghost is seen throughout the ruin of Labyrinthian, engaged in conversations with her fellow students, as witnessed by the Dragonborn.



Elvali: "I can't believe we're doing this."
Savos: "Can you imagine the looks on their faces when we come back?"
Hafnar: "You keep talking like you're sure we'll find something useful in here."
Girduin: "Given the history of this place, it's more than likely there's still some amount of power here."
Savos: "Enchanted weapons, tomes of ancient knowledge, Shalidor's secrets themselves -- who knows what we could find!"
Takes-In-Light: "And what if... What if there are things guarding this place?"
Atmah: "Against six College-trained mages? I think we'll be fine."

Elvali: "We... we have to go back. We can't leave Girduin..."
Hafnar: "We barely made it out alive, and you want to go back in?"
Atmah: "It's too late. There isn't enough of him left to go back in after."
Takes-In-Light: "Gods, what have we done?"
Savos: "We can't go back. Might as well go forward. We can still do this."
Atmah: "Savos is right. We can make it if we just stay alert."

Savos: "Come on, we can't stop now. We have to keep moving!"
Atmah: "Where's Elvali? She was right behind me."
Hafnar: "Dead. Something grabbed her from behind. Gone before I could do anything."
Takes-In-Light: "This is insanity. We never should've come here."
Atmah: "You're right. This is all my fault. Should we turn around, head back?"
Hafnar: "I don't think going back is a good idea."
Savos: "Going back would be the end of all of us. We keep pushing forward, and we'll make it. We will!"
Atmah: "Come on, you can make it. Let's go."
