Veya Releth in her Morag Tong leathers

Veya Releth is the daughter of a prominent House Redoran family and Morag Tong apprentice turned trainee currently apprenticed to Naryu Virian. Born to Eris and Tavya Releth, she and her older brother Ulran would sneak out as children to see Naryu training with her blades, growing very close to her. Following Ulran's unexplained exile, she left her family to secretly join the Morag Tong.

She murdered Captain Brivan and her father before being confronted and defeated, saving the lives of the Redoran council. Although High Councilor Meriath assumed Veya was killed and the matter was concluded, she was only near death so Naryu was able to bring her back to the Balmora safehouse. Ashur healed her and Naryu made the decision to send Veya to Summerset, parting ways at Vivec City's docks.

Although her mentor's intention was for Razum-dar to take her under his wing on the island of Summerset, Veya abandoned that path after Nocturnal comforted a despairing and lonely Veya in her dreams of Evergloam, promising her that they would "fix the world together". She took the name Tundilwen and became Nocturnal's Earl in the Court of Bedlam.

Veya wielding Duskbringer

She later wielded Dawnbreaker that her mistress took from Darien Gautier and corrupted, much to his consternation, and fought with it during a last ditch attempt to stop Nocturnal's plans to rewrite reality with the Heart of Transparent Law in the Crystal Tower's mausoleum. Nocturnal brought her back as a powerful shade at the final confrontation atop Crystal Tower.

She is the author of Veya's Private Thoughts, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4 that can be found scattered across Summerset.

Of Faith and Family[edit]

After meeting Veya in Mallapi Cave, the councilor sends the Warclaw mercenaries in to find Veya. Naryu appears again.

Naryu Virian: "She can handle herself just fine, hero. Veya, grab your things. It's time to go."
Veya Releth: "Go? Why? What's going on?"
Naryu Virian: "The Warclaws are marching toward this cave, along with half the House Redoran soldiers in Balmora. We need to go now."
Veya Releth: "Damn it, they must have followed us! I'll get my stuff."

After leaving the caves and distracting Councilor Eris by giving a report to him, you meet up with Naryu and Veya at an Ashlander camp; Veya eager to find her brother.

Naryu Virian: "Well, those certainly aren't Ashlanders, not with those tails!"
Veya Releth: "This is... disturbing..."

After speaking to Veya, Naryu tries to dissuade her from entering the camp:

Naryu Virian: "Veya, I don't think this is a good idea. We're trying to keep you out of House Redoran hands, remember?"
Veya Releth: "You're not my parent, Naryu! I can take care of myself, even if "the Mother of Blades" doesn't think so."
Naryu Virian: "Damn it, Veya! You know I hate that title."

As you progress through Kudanat Mine you'll hear Warclaws discussing burning bodies and before long you'll discover the corpses of Ashlanders and sadly Veya's brother.

Veya Releth: "Come on! Wait...what's that smell?"
Naryu Virian: "Veya! Stay back. You don't need to see this."
Veya Releth: "What happened here? Oh gods, they murdered these poor Ashlanders!"

Family Reunion[edit]

Veya may be at the Vivec City docks after the completion of the quest, where you can speak to her:

"Naryu thought you might stop by. You probably hate me and I completely understand. I'm still glad you showed up though."
Do you think you can put this all behind you?
"I lost my brother, I killed my own father... I probably went crazy there for a while. I don't think I'll ever put this completely behind me. But I'll do what Naryu asks. I'll go away, finish my training. Try to make a new start."
Where is Naryu sending you?
"To Summerset, but don't tell anybody. She was quite adamant about that. She's given me a letter of introduction for some highfalutin Khajiit. Works for a queen or something. Anyway, he's going to be my new mentor."
Well, good luck to you, Veya.
"Look, I'm sorry. Ulran's death made me crazy―that's no excuse―but I'm never going to forgive House Redoran for the attitudes that brought us here. I'm done with them. Take care of Naryu. I don't want her to get hurt because of me."

Lost in Translation[edit]

Veya: "Now that Leythen's gone, we can talk freely."

"I never expected to see you again, but you shouldn't have come here. These words of power, they aren't meant for mortal eyes.
I'm an earl in the Court of Bedlam now. So believe me when I say that Leythen isn't being totally honest with you."
Veya from Balmora? You're Nocturnal's earl? How did that happen?
"That doesn't matter. What matters is that I want to maintain the balance of power among the Daedric triad. If Leythen translates the language and gives Mephala the secret, she'll gain an advantage that could threaten my Prince, Nocturnal."
It sounds like the triad of Daedric Princes isn't as united as we thought.
"Speculate all you want. I'm here to give you a gift. Nocturnal has authorized me to provide you with the meaning of the mysterious phrase.
It's in all our best interests for the Ritemaster to remember where he hid the Heart of Transparent Law."
So what do the words mean?
"The phrase the Ritemaster remembers, the words he keeps hearing, it's a spell to retrieve something hidden.
When the time is right, he just needs to repeat the phrase to reveal the Heart's hiding place."
I'll let the Ritemaster know.
"I wasn't sure how I'd feel if I saw you or Naryu again. Balmora seems like a lifetime ago, and I'm a new person since committing myself to Nocturnal's service.
I wish you weren't involved in this matter."
You knew exactly when and where to contact me. How?
"Artaeum is only as isolated as it allows itself to be. Fire the abyssal pearl allowed the Sea Sload and Mephala to invade the Psijic island. Then you took Leythen, an earl in the Court of Bedlam, prisoner.
We know your moves before you make them."
What does the triad of Daedric Princes hope to achieve?
"Our Princes plan to do away with the laws imposed by other powers. They want to remake Nirn, reshape it to better suit their every inclination.
Of course to do this, all obstacles must be cast aside- including the other Daedric Princes."
And what does the Court of Bedlam get out of all this?
"The Court isn't evil. We wouldn't be a part of something that didn't add to the greater good. When our Princes are done, war and sickness will be eradicated. There will be true peace.
And godhood for the Court, as befits beings of our stature."
(If you spared Veya in Family Reunion) You were suppose to start a new life in Summerset. I don't think this is what Naryu had in mind.
"A new life? More like a new prison! Serving at the feet of a Khajiit to become a slave to the High Elf Queen? No, that's not an existence I could bear.
I follow the shadowy paths of Nocturnal now. She gives me the freedom to be who I really am!"
(If you killed Veya in Family Reunion) You're supposed to be dead. Naryu killed you in Balmora.
"Naryu is a liar and a coward. She pretends to be a cold-hearted killer, but she couldn't bring herself to spill my blood.
Instead, she sent me away. Shipped me off to protect me, she said. To save me. More likely she just wanted to save herself."
How did you wind up in service to Nocturnal?
"I felt abandoned, lost. That's when Nocturnal offered to comfort me. Not the Morag Tong. Not a Khajiit guardian. Not even you.
Nocturnal gave me a purpose and a family. She gave me something to believe in."
You know we're going to stop the triad of Daedric Princes.
"Belief doesn't make something true. You stopped me once, but I'm stronger now. More powerful. As for the Princes, you're barely a speck on a flea that gets casually brushed aside after a minor irritation.
Do what you must. This only ends one way."

"Tell the Ritemaster. It's a spell of retrieval."
