Tashpi Ashibael

Tashpi Ashibael is a Dunmer healer located inside her hut in Maar Gan.

If you ask around in town about her during the Mages Guild quest, the response will be "Tashpi is our healer, not some necromancer. Everyone here in Maar Gan knows her and all the good she's done here."

However, this generous person managed to form a powerful enemy: Ranis Athrys, head of the Mages Guild in Balmora. The nature of the conflict can't be revealed clearly, but according to Tashpi's own words, she provoked Ranis' grudge by both refusing to join the guild and being Velothi, not a well born (i.e. born under Imperial influence) Dunmer like Ranis. Tashpi chose to stay away from the guild's politics and to practice healing among other native Dunmer.

Dialogue[edit]

  • necromancy:
    • "Necromancy? I am NOT a necromancer. Who said I was a... a necromancer?"
      • Ranis Athrys. "Oh, I see. I refused to join the Mages Guild. I chose to practice healing among my people, away from the politics of the Guild. Since I was a Velothi and not well born like Ranis... Well, it's not important now. Maybe I know a way out of this situation."
      • Not your concern. "Ask anyone in the village. I'm no necromancer and anyone around here can tell you the truth of the matter."
If you say the former, the conversation will continue—see below.
  • Tell me more. "If Ranis has held a grudge this long, it would be best for me to leave for the mainland. There are plenty of towns that could use a healer. Tell Ranis Athrys that I am dead. I will leave Vvardenfell and Ranis need never know."
  • Die necromancer! "Spirits of my ancestors protect me!" Goodbye
If you say the former, the conversation will continue—see below.
  • I agree. I will let you go.
  • You cannot escape justice! "
No matter what you say, Ashibael will respond: "I'll leave for the mainland as soon as I get a few things together. There are many other towns in need of a healer. Tell Ranis Athrys that I am dead." The irony is that the latter is a rather confrontational response and would naturally yield a reply in kind.
  • "I'll leave for the mainland as soon as I get a few things together. There are many other towns in need of a healer. Tell Ranis Athrys that I am dead."

Necromancer or not?[edit]

At least, Tashpi's explanation makes sense: her well-earned popularity in Maar Gan is a good reason to jaundice, since Ranis is so separate from native culture living in Imperial-influenced town and guild. Besides, there are other small hints which can be easily spotted.

  • All quests given by Ranis uncover her as a cruel, unprincipled, and vengeful person. See respective page for details.
  • The items found in Tashpi Ashibael's hut and inventory suggest she is indeed a healer.
  • Finally, Ranis' dialogue at the end of the quest, "She is truly dead? You have done me... the Guild, that is, a great service." suggests that the conflict was personal.

Notes[edit]

  • Tashpi will abandon her house if you spare her life during the quest.
  • If you kill Tashpi, asking people in Maar Gan about her will produce an answer "How dare you talk about that after what you did?"
