The Golden Knight

The Golden Knight is a mysterious character who is dressed in a suit of golden Auroran armor and wields the powerful sword Dawnbreaker. He briefly appears on several occasions during the Summerset questline, often using his power to briefly help you before being teleported back due to Daedric interference. It is later revealed that the Golden Knight is in fact Darien Gautier, serving the Daedric Prince Meridia.

Once you finish speaking to Iachesis and leave his office, the following exchange occurs as the members of the Psijic Order see projections in a scrying pool:

Oriandra: "Ritemaster! The abyssal pearl. It's gone!
Ritemaster Iachesis: "Gone? How? I set the protections personally!"
Iradal: "See what the scrying pool reveals! There's something happening on the beach!"
Valsirenn: "It's the yaghra, they're invading Artaeum!"
Ritemaster Iachesis: "The pearl! Somehow it was used to summon the yaghra! We need to defend the beach!"
Valsirenn: "Wait! Is that a sword?"
Golden Knight: "That would be mine. I'm on my way to help. Eventually.
Ritemaster Iachesis: "The Golden Knight and his sword can wait. The yaghra are our primary concern."
Valsirenn: "Follow the Ritemaster. I'll portal myself and meet you there."
Iradal: "My word, the vision showed us the Dawnbreaker! I'm almost positive."
The Golden Knight destroys Mephala's webs

Upon reaching the sealed door in the Psijic Relic Vaults and defeating the Spiderkith:

Ritemaster Iachesis: "Mephala's Daedra! They sealed the chamber. We'll need to go through them."
Spiderkith Venifex: "Mephala has sealed this place, mortal flea!"
Ritemaster Iachesis: "The barrier of webs. Burn it away so we can enter the rotunda.
Another Daedric intrusion?"
Golden Knight: "My apologies. Daedric interference and Artaeum's own defenses delayed my arrival.
Mephala's webs? I hate those things! Allow me.
Damn it, they found me again! I'll return when I can—"
Ritemaster Iachesis: "A champion of Meridia? At least he was helpful."

The Golden Knight tries to save Imedril

Once you reach Sapiarch Imedril you'll hear the Sapiarch and Knight in the middle of a fight:

Sapiarch Imedril: "Don’t don’t let it take me ...."
Golden Knight: "No worries, I've got you! I think."

The Golden Knight will then address you:

"You there! Burn the webs! Quickly, quickly!"
Golden Knight: "Mephala's damn webbing! It's in all my nooks and crannies! Thanks for helping, though."

The Golden Knight's sword is damaged in a magical attack. He'll call for you aid once more:

"No! Save the Dawnstar Gem!"
