Family reunion
I met a Khajiit named Zhasim who was raised as part of an Orc clan. An old pack within the ancient ruins inside Bonerock Cavern contained a Khajiit medallion. Could it be a clue to Zhasim's origin?

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Show the medallion to Zhasim.
  2. Solve the puzzles.
  3. Help Zhasim explore the ruins.
  4. Talk to Zhasim to finish quest.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

To begin the quest, ensure you have picked up the prerequisite quest and spoken to Murukh, Avreg and Zhasim, otherwise the "old backpack" will not be marked as such, Zhasim will not be where he needs to be, the blocks will not be rotatable, and none of the puzzles will be solvable.

In the center of the first rectangular room of the delve there is a dais, upon which there should be a backpack bearing the text "old backpack". To begin the quest, open this pack and discuss its contents with the nearby NPC Zhasim. You will then be faced with a puzzle.

Puzzle 1: To solve the puzzle, there is a journal near a dead Argonian that gives some clues. Also, on the walls of the cavern are plaques with the same symbols as the prayer wheels. Note that the candles are only lit in front of three of these plaques: the hammer on the left side, and the torch and wolf on the right side as you enter the cavern. The correct order is torch, hammer, wolf as you face the door.

Puzzle 2: In the next chamber, you find a note with a riddle. You need to examine the items in the correct order: sarcophagus with the knight mural, open sarcophagus (hunt-wife mural), tapestry, table (mural of seated king).

Puzzle 3: The next room you enter, read the note then pick up the 3 vases. Place vases with moon motifs next to a pool. The tall vase goes in the center.

Go to the next room and talk to Zhasim.
