When Ma'randru-jo is not wandering the roads of Tamriel, he can be found in one of the caravan camps led by Ri'saad. The caravan travels the route between Markarth and Whiterun and spends two full days camped outside each city before alternating. Since he does not stay stationary, he can be hard to find. However, the map indicates his position. To find him simply travel to his known location, check the map, then travel to his new location. Continue this until he is found.
Once you have located him, you may talk to him. Like most other assassination targets, you are given three dialogue choices. If you choose to insult him, he will attack you first, so you can then kill him without the fear of incurring a bounty and being arrested by the town guard, or attacked by the rest of the Khajiit merchants. Alternatively, you can sneak kill him without being detected by the rest of the merchants.
|"I'm going to beat you like a house cat." (if the player is a non-Khajiit)
"You are a disgrace to our race! I spit on your fur!" (if the player is a Khajiit)
|"What? You dare challenge Ma'randru-jo? You will suffer for your insolence!"||Becomes hostile and attacks|
|"You're one hard mage to track down, Ma'randru-jo."||"And why would you be looking for me, hmm? I'm not sure I appreciate your presence here. Friend."||Walks away|
|(Remain silent)||"Now aren't you a strange one. Well, if you're here to shop, shop. If not, find some other caravan to stalk."||Walks away|
Return to the sanctuary and speak with Nazir to complete the quest and receive a reward of leveled Gold. If you're a Khajiit, Nazir will remark "How went your encounter with Ma'randru-jo? Back in Hammerfell, I always loved watching two cats rip each other to shreds...".
- Ri'saad, the caravan leader, is essential. If the other Khajiit attack, you will be unable to kill him.
