Quest-Related EventsEdit

Tournament of the HeartEdit

When first approached outside the tourney grounds, she will be comforting Aurelia:

Isobel Veloise: "Don't worry, sweetheart. I'll figure something out. I always do."

You can then speak with her, to see what is going on:

"I'm sorry, this isn't the best time. My friend Aurelia has a bit of a problem. Her mother has promised her hand in marriage, and I need to get her out of it … somehow.
Hmm. Actually, you look quite capable. Would you mind lending me a hand?"
And who are you?
"Apologies! My name is Isobel Veloise. I'm an aspirant in the Sapphire Tourney, a proving ground for squires looking to join the knightly orders.
Aurelia's mother is Knight Commander, and umm … brashly offered her daughter's hand as a prize."
How are you going to get your friend out of this promise?
"Well, normally aspirants only compete in one of the trials. If I can win all three, the Knight Commander will be compelled to grant a boon of my choosing. I can free Aurelia from her mother's promise!
What do you say? Will you be my second?"
I'll help you, Isobel.

Once you agree to act as Isobel's second, you can ask her about the three trials and you can decide which one to do first:

"The Eight must have me in their hearts. My second just left my service, and here I was thinking I'd have to do it alone.
All right. There are three knightly orders here on the Isle. Let's decide what task to tackle first."
You mentioned the three orders, what are they? What do they want us to do?
"The people of the Systres take pride in our knights, the same as anywhere in High Rock. The Sapphire Tourney hosts three orders: the Iron Knot, the Oaken Order, and the Order of the Albatross."

The Three TasksEdit

The three tasks can be done in any order. You have the option to ask for more information about any of the three orders. Once she has given you the information, you are given the choice of beginning the quest she's just told you about, or hearing about one of the other options.

After the first quest is completed, you return to this dialogue, with only two choices. After the second quest is completed, there is only one remaining, so you have the option to get the information about it again, or begin it immediately.

Task: The Order of the Iron KnotEdit
What do you know about the Order of the Iron Knot?
"They're martial warriors and excellent ahorse. You might say the Iron Knot is the most traditional of the Sapphire Orders.
Our trial will be to find the hilt from a lost sword called Redheart. It was the blade of the first Duke Dufort."
Where was the sword lost?
"Somewhere on these lands, before they belonged to the Duforts. The hilt supposedly had a massive rough-cut ruby in it, should be easy to spot.
My last squire, Berjo, suggested we hit the castle library to get an idea of where to start looking."
What can you tell me about the Order of the Albatross?
Tell me about the Oaken Order.
Let's find that hilt for the Iron Knot. To the library!
Task: The Oaken OrderEdit
Tell me about the Oaken Order.
"Oaken knights tend to be battlemages, conjurers, and support spellcasters. Their power stems from High Isle's strong tradition of druidic magic.
Our trial will be to convince an elder of their order to give us a staff, a symbol of their order."
Do we talk to the mage, or fight them?
"I'm guessing it won't be that straightforward. But who knows?
There's a wayshrine near the coral river to the east. I'll meet you there, and we can make for the site of the trial."
What can you tell me about the Order of the Albatross?
What do you know about the Order of the Iron Knot?
Let's get that staff for the Oaken Order.
Task: The Order of the AlbatrossEdit
What can you tell me about the Order of the Albatross?
"Eight above help me … they're artists and sailors. Singers, bards, and pirates, all. Brave swashbuckling warriors that make you recite poetry. Ghastly stuff."
Is our trial a poem?
"No, thankfully. Our trial will be to reclaim the Gilded Lute of Captain Brenvale. The story goes that he went down into the castle crypts years ago, hoping to use song and steel to subdue a spirit.
He never returned. Hopefully we'll do better."
Tell me about the Oaken Order.
What do you know about the Order of the Iron Knot?
Let's find the lute for the Order of the Albatross.
Let's get that staff for the Oaken Order.
"I'm guessing it won't be that straightforward. But who knows? There's a wayshrine near the coral river to the east. I'll meet you there, and we can make for the site of the trial."
Let's find the lute for the Order of the Albatross.
"The catacombs are beneath the castle's chapel. We should just be able to grab a key near the stairs. I'll meet you there.
With luck, this one should be fairly straightforward. Not counting the ghosts, of course."

(Optional) Ask Isobel for more detailsEdit

Before heading to the task, or at various times during the tasks, you can speak further:

Can we talk about what's going on?
"Of course. Draigh, I'm sorry. I bet I came on a little strong. I've spent months preparing for the tourney.
And now the commander's pronouncement has set me adrift. I'll be all right. What would you like to know?"
What does Draigh mean?
"Hah, sorry. It's a curse I picked up from my dad. A word from the old druid tongue that's been co-opted for common folk.
I sort of grew up here at the castle and it's a little more acceptable than the curses the dockhands use. So I use it."
Got it. Why are you so eager to help Aurelia?
"Aurelia and I grew up together. We've been close since we were very young and … well. I can't stand the thought of her marrying one of the other aspirants.
Especially Mortens. My goodness, what a dreary man."
Does this tourney happen every year?
"Nope! The tourney is only called every few years, as schedules and aspirants allow. The commander wants to make sure there are enough people in the mix to make it a challenge.
And the orders are only so large on High Isle, as you might imagine."
How does the tourney work?
"I'm not sure how tamsfolk tourneys work, but here each order sets a challenge. Attempting the challenge for an order marks you in good standing, and each order only chooses one or two aspirants for knighthood.
It's fairly competitive, as a result."
Which order do you belong to?
"I'm not a knight just yet. That's why I'm in the tourney! I was a squire for years before I became an aspirant.
You don't want to know how many stalls I've cleaned. The tourney gives me a chance to prove my worth to the orders, you see."
Which order do you want to join?
"That's a handsome question. I wish I had an answer for you. I can see ways that I'd be a good fit for either the Oaken Order or the Iron Knot … maybe even the Order of the Albatross!
That's a problem for day's end Isobel to face. Heh."
That's all the questions I have for now, Isobel.

Order of the Iron Knot TaskEdit

When you choose this task, Isobel will say:

"Let's meet up at the castle library, in the knight's wing. I've spent many an hour there studying up on monsters, history, and healing.
My only complaint is there aren't a lot of novels."

Then:

"Go on, I'll catch up with you at the castle's library. It's easy to find: big room, full of books. Can't miss it."

Going through the main gate to the castle, there is a large door straight ahead to the "Castle Navire Courtyard". Use the smaller door to the left to the "Castle Navire Knight's Wing".

Go to the end of the hall where Elise Moret is standing and turn left. You will hear:

"There you are! Let's see if we can unearth the past, shall we?"
"People left books open all over the place. How rude."

Turn left, then go through the doorway on the right into the library. Isobel will say this if you speak to her:

"My previous second, Berjo, had a good thought. To look for the early history of the Duforts.
He likes reading dry texts. I like hitting things with a sword."

If you read Mad Baron Densil, Part the First before leaving, Isobel will comment:

"What was that one about? I found something about crop rotation. Exciting."

Reading The Battle of Meadow Fort, will attract Isobel's notice:

"Find anything promising? Let's chat."

When you speak to her, she'll continue:

"The book was already open... I bet my old second Berjo offered the same advice he gave me to Aspirant Langley. Draigh!"
I think it had a clue about Redheart. Oldstone Woods?
"Let's see... You're right, looks like the Duforts had a holdfast there, before they became nobles.
Oh, wait. I know this place! It's an old ruin off to the east. Aurelia and I used to pretend it was a witch's lair when we were young."
You knew about this place? Why did we need to look it up in a book?
"Well, in my defense, I didn't know it was owned by the Duforts when we played there as kids.
We also didn't go looking for knightly relics! Which, now I wish we had."
Fair enough. How do we get to the ruin?
"There aren't really roads back there. But I remember a nice wide path we can take. I'll mark your map.
Maybe if we hurry we can beat Berjo and Langley to the ruin!"
Sounds good, I'll meet you there.

She continues, and if you talk to her again after this, she'll say:

"I'll see you there! I'm hoping we can beat the other aspirants to the hilt."
Why are we looking for a hilt? Didn't you say the Iron Knot valued martial skill?
"Each of the captains have their own view on how to earn honor. I've heard stories that the Iron Knot's captain, Orlfeth, has slain trolls twice her size!
So just swinging a sword won't impress her. She wants warriors that can think as well as fight."
Does she hide this hilt out there for every tourney?
"Hah, that's a funny thought. I don't think so? But we can ask her.
The hilt itself is classic Iron Knot. A historic trophy from a mighty warrior who fell in single combat at a crucial battle. And changed history with his blade."

Oaken Order TaskEdit

Order of the Albatross TaskEdit

When met at the chapel:

Isobel Veloise: ""
"We've got a small hitch in this rope. The key to the catacombs entrance is usually right near the door … but someone took it."
Perhaps one of your competitors?
"Draigh, I hope not. The idea of aspirants trying to directly sabotage each other doesn't sit well with me. And I see that look in your eye … no lockpicking. But buff my plates, we still need that key."
No lockpicking, got it. Is there another key somewhere?
"Yes, let's split up. I'll go speak to the castle stewards, and you head for the offices of the knight commander. We can meet back here. Stendarr willing, one of us will have some luck."
I'll meet you back here, then.
"I still can't believe someone took the key. So childish. I bet it's Mortens. Mortens!"
Did you say the Albatross knights are pirates?
"I mean, they're not real pirates. They're knights who ride the waves instead of horses. And sing. By the gods do they sing. There's an old joke around the castle that they're called the Order of the Albatross because they're so damned loud."
Right, they want us to get a musical instrument.
"Yes, a golden lute. The story goes that some years back the head of the order, Sir Brenvale, went down to clear the catacombs of a mad spirit. I think it was some Dufort noble? I'm not sure who. But Sir Brenvale never returned."
Why did a singing, sailing knight go after a ghost?
"I'll be honest, this is one order I'm not likely to join. They're an odd group. But it kind of makes sense. Just think of them as something like chivalric bards. They're constantly on the hunt for new adventures, new tales to tell."

Elise Moret is standing directly in front of you when you enter, and will give you directions to the knight commander's office if you ask.

Companion DialogueEdit

With this option, you can ask about her feelings towards you and about herself:

"I'm at your service, of course."
"Of course. What did you want to discuss?"

"It's a pleasure to ride with you. I hope this is just early days in our tale." "This may surprise you but I haven't had a lot of close friends over the years. I hope you stick around."
"Stendarr willing, our adventures have only just begun!" "I offered you my blade hardly knowing anything about you. You've been so kind to me ever since."

Tell me something about yourself.
"I've always had a bit of a sweet tooth.
I grew up eating the saltwater taffies of High Isle, and to this day it's a guilty pleasure I allow myself from time to time."
"The Daedra fill me with … loathing isn't the right word. Fury. Their darkness threatens everyone and everything on Nirn.
Stendarr gives me the strength to fight them, and I swear to do so at every turn."
"If you're up for it, my training as a knight has me itching to take on some tougher enemies. I've heard stories about them lurking out in the wilds, or in the depths of delves.
And, of course, perhaps we could net some good stories as well."
"Some of my favorite tales are those of the alliance leaders. And the Companions, the adventuring group? Incredible.
Especially Lyris Titanborn. She's so … impressive. Ahem. Never mind. Forget I said anything."
"My honor as a knight has given me purpose over the years.
Thievery and murder run counter to that code. I hope you understand."
"Draigh, the Undaunted are impressive. I wish I'd known about them when I was a lass. Across the world, a band of adventurers explores the depths and fights monsters.
And they sing! 'Who knows no fear of Daedric blades? We are Undaunted!' Hah!"
"I grew up squiring for the knights at Castle Navire. Just because my family comes from nobility, I hope you don't think I'm stuffy.
I certainly don't think I'm stuffy. Am I stuffy?"
Is there anything else I should know about? (Appears if Character is member of Thieves Guild or Dark Brotherhood)
"You have quick fingers, and while your skill is admirable, it's also … ugh. I always feel like such a stick in the mud. Aurelia used to joke that I was worse than the guard.
Look, please don't steal things in front of me? Thank you, my friend."
"I understand that you have obligations to your friends in the Dark Brotherhood. If I might ask a favor?
Allow me to step away when you're engaged in such activities. My honor makes it hard to reconcile our friendship and your actions."
Let's talk about something else. (Returns to Greetings)
