- When you first meet her
- "If you want to join the Mages Guild, please see the magister. I have pressing issues I must attend to."
- Before starting Long Lost Lore
- "Well met, Adept. I believe I may have a task for you."
- What can I do for you?
- "New members are the lifeblood of the Mages Guild. Especially for retrieval missions. I've received word about a possible store of ancient knowledge in a ruin nearby. I'd like you to retrieve it for me."
- Where is this? (Aldmeri Dominion)
- "To the north of the city lies the ruin known as Ondil. If you please, investigate the ruin and bring back any interesting books you can find."
- I'll return as soon as I can.
- Long Lost Lore started (Aldmeri Dominion)
- "The ruins of Ondil are a dark and dangerous place. Tread carefully, Adept."
- After joining the Guild
- What is your role in the Mages Guild?
- "I am the Master of Incunabula, the keeper of tomes. I've come here to inspect the Arcanaeum, the guild's library. I've dedicated my life to expanding our guild's knowledge. Standards must be kept."
- What's in these books?
- "I don't know. It's always a delicious mystery, cracking open a book for the first time. They could be anything from ancient recipes for stew to high arcana. Even racy journals penned by Elven poets!"
