Why is it not mentioned that he is under the orders and/or influence of a Daedric Prince? Or did I miss it?Only the faithless will perish, but those without cannot be punished. (talk) 04:44, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

If I recall correctly, Hermaeus Mora only allowed Septimus to open the Dwarven mechanism for his own ends. I don't think Septimus was under any kind of mind-control; he was just allowed to "live" until Hermaeus got what he wanted. --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 04:48, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

Then that should still be mentioned, don't you think? Meeting it is unavoidable if you do his quests. I also noticed that on her page it has little mention of the encounter(It does mention it, but it does not explain the results of denying her needs and or accepting her as a Deity).Only the faithless will perish, but those without cannot be punished.

  • I added the information under "Discerning the Transmundane" to the best of my ability. I would add the information to Hermaeus Mora's page, but I chose not to aid him. I'm not sure what the other options are, although I've heard from others that it does not affect the outcome of the quest either way. --—Deyvid Petteys (bother \ stalk) 05:16, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

Since Septimus gets disintegrated at the end of Discerning the Transmundane, is it still possible to complete The Elder Knowledge quest after you've completed the deadric quest? ~ ~ ~ ~

Very early in that quest you are presented with the elder scroll. If you take it, it will remain a quest item forever and can never be dropped. The only way to get rid of it is to sell it to the orc at the college of winterhold after you use it to learn dragonrend. So, yes. You can get the scroll long before Septimus gets "rewarded".

I don't see why not, since the only things you needed from him to complete Elder Knowledge was the location of the Elder Scroll and the items to enter Blackreach. He gives those to you first, before he gives you the Essense Extractor. ~ 05:31, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
