Tancano is an Altmer and a resident of the town of Phaer. He is actually a vampire, infected by Aluvus, and his father Hendil is desperate to find a cure. As you approach the inner catacombs, his father will plead you for him, to which he will say, "The new blood smells fresh. Please, father. Let them in." Enter his lair, where you see him feasting on the body of Iwelien. As you approach him, he'll say, "Fresh blood! And my next thrall!" before attacking you.
