The Frozen Man is an insane Bosmer ghost found in Orkey's Hollow. He says he was in a group of people inside the cave when it began collapsing, killing him in the process. From the items gathered in the cave, it can be assumed the Frozen Man was a mage and a member of the Aldmeri Dominion before his death.
This insane ghost is believed to have imprisoned a Nord named Eiman in Orkey's Hollow, after he ventured into the cave to try and find the Frozen Man. Rolunda, Eiman's sister, asks the Vestige to rescue her brother. In the cave, the only way Eiman can be released from imprisonment is if the Vestige agrees to play the Frozen Man's games, which are guessing his identity based on three items found within the cave, and finding the real Frozen Man when he uses three illusions of him to try tricking the Vestige. After he is convinced to let Eiman go, the Nord can be brought back to his sister.

|Inside Orkey's Hollow:
"This one's frozen! Is it someone you know? Guess who I am, and I might let him go."
When walking through the cave:
"Keep walking! There couldn't possibly be traps."
In front of an camping site:
"You'll make a lovely squirrel. So inquisitive!"
After searching the knapsack:
"How rude! Digging through my things. What manners!"
When spoken to:
"Have you any idea? Ooh, this is so exciting!"
When approaching the Frozen Man's Journal:
"Leave that be! That's private!"
When approaching the cliffs in the cave:
"Look up, greedy squirrel! See something shiny? Don't break your neck!"
After looting the chest:
"Astounding! You've accomplished the impossible! Leaping small rocks!"
"What have you got, clever squirrel? Do you have a guess?"
When spoken to:
"Digging away! Puffy little cheecks. What have you found?"
When entering through the door:
"Here I am! Or am I here? Guess wrong, and you're mine, my dear."
When picking the wrong illusion:
"Ooh, so close!"
When picking the right character:
"Don't talk to me. I'm a shrub."
If approached again:
"Go, go on now! He's not frozen anymore."
