DialogueEdit

When spoken to:

"Don't forget my name. Someday, everyone will be saying it."
"If you ask me, this damned rebellion can't end soon enough. I had to end my tour of Skyrim's courts. Too dangerous to travel."
"It's been my honor to perform at the Blue Palace on many occasions. His late lordship was quite the admirer."
"Now you can say you've met the most talented bard in all of Skyrim."
"To be honest, I can't stand some of my students. Only Aia shows potential for greatness. The rest are just wasting my time."

Pantea can be overheard in several conversations with students and the headmaster:

Pantea: "You there, have you performed your voice exercises today?"
Aia: "Always! Perfection takes dedication, after all!"
Pantea: "Yes, well, see that you keep at it. That is all."
Pantea: "Your performance has been excellent lately Aia. You still need training but one day you will make an adequate singer."
Aia: "Yes, Dean. Thank you."
Pantea: "You there, have you performed your voice exercises today?"
Jorn: "Yes, Lady Ateia. My voice is strong as a Dragonborn's!"
Pantea: "Yes, well, see that you keep at it. That is all."
Pantea: "You there, have you performed your voice exercises today?"
Illdi: "Yes, madam. I know I have a lot to work on."
Pantea: "Yes, well, see that you keep at it. That is all."
Viarmo: "How are your students coming along?"
Pantea: "Passably. Aia is my star pupil; none of the others can hold a candle to her, especially not that wretched Illdi."
Viarmo: "Try not to play favorites, Lady Ateia. It does a disservice to the whole class."
Pantea: "Yes, Headmaster."

Pantea's FluteEdit

"That damn fool! I should ring her neck!"

Who's neck is that?
"Larina. That fool student of mine stole my flute and sold it to some necromancer. I just got a ransom note for it. That flute has been handed down for seventeen generations! Well don't just stand there. Go get my flute!"
Why would a necromancer want your flute?
"Apparently Larina told him some story about the flute being able to make the dead dance. It's just a flute. A really old and valuable flute, but just a flute."

Once the flute is recovered:

I recovered your flute.
"That's it! Wonderful! I knew I could count on you. I don't have any money to give you. But I can show you a few tricks I learned playing for the Winterhold wizards."

Bound Until DeathEdit

She can be found singing at the wedding and can be spoken to:

"If you want my opinion, I think they should have paid for an entire quartet. Plenty of bards at the College would have loved the opportunity."
Having a good time?
"I am, thank you. I do so enjoy singing at weddings. It's just one of the many duties we at the Bards College are called upon to perform."
"Ahem. Mi mi mi mi. Pardon me. Just, um, warming up. Never know when I may be called upon for a ballad."

Once Vittoria Vici is murdered:

"I just came to sing! This is a horror show!"
"The bride has been murdered! Somebody help!"
