Alethius is a deceased Imperial whose corpse can be found just before the entrance to Nchuand-Zel, within the Nchuand-Zel Excavation Site underneath Understone Keep in Markarth. He wears a full set of Imperial armor, and carries a note that begins the quest The Lost Expedition. He was assigned to guard the research expedition into Nchuand-Zel, but met his untimely death, likely by Nimhe, the giant frostbite spider guarding the entrance to Nchuand-Zel, whose lair is just above Alethius's body.

  • His note is written to someone named Salonia, and two NPCs with that first name exist in Skyrim. However, neither of them appear to have any connection to him.
