Name origin[edit | edit source]
The White Phial is named after an ancient alchemical relic of the same name that is said to be crafted from the first snow to fall on the Throat of the World. Nurelion chose this name in hopes that someone would visit with word of the phial's whereabouts. He spent his entire life searching for it, and if prompted, he asks the Dragonborn to continue his search.
