Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Mother and son reunited

Around Khenarthi's Roost there are three tiny Crosstree Bandit camps. In these can be found a note, which mentions that a Khajiit was taken to the Hazak's Hollow hideout.

"A young Khajiit wandered into camp last night, said he's looking for Hazak. If anyone asks where I am, I'm dragging this fool off to Hazak's Hollow. He'll see the boss before his head and body part ways."
<Continue reading.>
"We spotted Aldmeri on the beaches. If you need me, send a runner up and around the hill above Hazak's Hollow. Double back to the dock near the entrance."
<Take the note.>

It also warns against Thalmor patrols on the beaches. Head for the Hollow, which is east of Mistral. Zulana will find you as you approach, and talking to her reveals her as the mother of Khari, the Khajiit from the note. She will beg you to rescue her son from the skooma dealers before he is killed.

Alternatively, you may get this quest from Zulana directly, without reading the note. In this case, she will approach you as you get near to Hazak's Hollow.

Enter the Hollow. You will have to swim for a bit, and Crosstree Bandits are everywhere, but you'll find Khari tied up on the right side of the cave. Talk to him, and he'll ask you to help him kill Hazak. He will also reveal something interesting: his mother is not all she seems. She scouted the cave ahead of time, and warned Khari of the danger. After Khari is untied, he will fight with you as locate the key to the back room, where Hazak lurks. The key is in a small chest across the cave. When you have it, enter Hazak's Lair.

Hazak's Lair is fairly small, so just go around to the main chamber and confront Hazak. Once he is dead, exit the Hollow to find Zulana waiting for you. She will reveal that Hazak was actually Khari's father, consumed by his addiction. Zulana is glad to be rid of her skooma-dealing husband, though, and thanks you with some gold, as well as Hazak's Hauberk, a piece of medium armor.


  • Khari won't exist inside the cove before starting the quest.
  • Bandits that are outside the objective radius (such as outside the cove), can also drop the key.
  • The silver chest containing the key won't exist in the cove before starting the quest or reaching the related objective.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
