Background[edit | edit source]

Aloth is a 62-year-old slender elf with pale skin and straight, dark brown hair. Born in the Cythwood, part of the mainland of the Aedyr Empire, Aloth was brought up in a servile family and suffered from domestic violence at the hands of his father. The violence suffered resulted in an Awakening of his soul, effectively giving him something like a split personality. A past life female persona named Iselmyr surfaced and took occasional control of Aloth’s body, primarily as a defense mechanism. These developments have given Aloth a strong need for control in all aspects of his life.

Aloth studied to be an arcane knight, but lost favor after trying to inform instructors about a student-run animancy experiment that would eventually kill a dozen students. Subsequently he joined the Leaden Key, but became separated from the rest of his group and now operates completely cut off from the organization.

Aloth’s conflict is about his relationship to animancy and to the Leaden Key. Aloth wants to learn the reasons behind Waidwen’s Legacy and ideally help to fix it. Aloth suspects that animancy is an affront to the gods, but he comes to learn that it is the leader of the Leaden Key who is perpetrating the crisis. On the other hand, he sees animancy as something dangerous that nevertheless might help him out with his Awakening.

His arc ends with him either choosing to take up Thaos’ mantle and run the Leaden Key or to oversee its dissolution.

Companion Quest[edit | edit source]

Aloth's companion quest is Two-Sided which can be obtained by speaking to him after completing Never Far from the Queen.
