Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Special DutiesEdit

Once you reach the rank of Master, Eno Hlaalu in the Vivec Morag Tong hall will ask you to kill a Dark Brotherhood member, Durus Marius, in the shrine of Assernerairan in the Underworks of the St. Olms Canton in Vivec.

Execute Durus MariusEdit

There are a number of enemies in the shrine and the close quarters might make the fight rather tricky.

Return to Eno once Durus is dead for his congratulations and a 2,000 gold reward.


  • You can find four of the Sanguine items carried by the people in the shrine.
  • If you've accidentally stumbled into the cult earlier and already killed Durus Marius, you will not receive the 2,000 gold, but Eno will praise you for your initiative.
