“Remember, Legate, that all care is not enough concerning this criminal. Qervalen is not your vulgar pickpocket; he is a war veteran, skilled with both blade and bow. Perhaps what makes this heinous mongrel the more dangerous is his ability to get in and out of places without being seen, as well as his extensive knowledge of the Legion – knowledge he gladly shares with the enemy, no doubt. Stopping Qervalen at any cost is imperative; he and his wretched band must be slaughtered before they can reach Pinewatch. I repeat: none of the rebels may survive. This will lead most of their forces to believe that the 'elf' led the 'sons and daughters of Skyrim' to an ambush of his authorship, thus reinforcing the Stormcloak erratic hostility toward all non-Nords.”
“Along with this letter I send you Qervalen’s journal, which my spies stole from a courier heading toward Whiterun. This is an account written by the fool himself depicting his travels across Skyrim ever since he crossed the border with Cyrodiil. I am certain that you will profit from reading it as much as I did, if not more.”
“For the glory of the Aldmeri Dominion, and of the Empire,”
Ondolemar, Head of the Thalmor Justiciars.
