Jauffre is the Breton grandmaster of the Blades, an organization responsible for protecting the Septim Emperors.

At the start of the main questline, Jauffre can be found living undercover as a monk in Weynon Priory near Chorrol after the events leading to the successful assassination of Emperor Uriel Septim. Once you bring the last Septim heir, Martin Septim, to him during the related quest, Jauffre will relocate to Cloud Ruler Temple and resume his position as grandmaster of the Blades.

As a monk, Jauffre wears a monk robe along with stitched leather shoes, and carries an Akaviri Dai-katana, which later confirms his affiliations. When at Cloud Ruler Temple, Jauffre will exchange his monk robes for the uniform of a Blade, consisting of a cuirass, gauntlets, greaves and boots. He also carries around copy of Mixed Unit Tactics and a small amount of gold.

Living a life of seclusion as a monk, Jauffre spends the entirety of his days and nights reading in the library situated within Weynon House. His daily schedule will only change once he relocates to Cloud Ruler Temple and The Path of Dawn has started. Jauffre will then spend the majority of his day patrolling the entire temple. He starts his day off at 8am, patrolling only to take a break at 11.30am within the great hall. at 4pm, he returns to his patrolling until 12.30am, where he will retreat to the east wing for his supper. At around 2am, he takes another two hour break from within the great hall before finally retiring for sleep in the west wing until 8am where he will repeat his schedule.

You are sent to him by Baurus at the end of the tutorial. This marks the start of the main quest, in which he plays a major role.

He is respected by his fellow Blades, particularly at Weynon Priory.[1]


If Baurus died, and you have his sword, he will honor the fallen knight: "He will not be forgotten. He goes to Aetherius to join the other fallen heroes of the Blades. I thank you for recovering his sword. I will set it in a place of honor in the Great Hall of Cloud Ruler Temple." Asking about Baurus again, or when you simply haven't got his sword, he will say: "He served with honor. No Blade could ask for higher praise."

Deliver the AmuletEdit

Jauffre reading one of the books from the library

When the Emperor is assassinated, he gave you the Amulet of Kings along with his final words which leads you to travel to Weynon Priory situated near Chorrol and to give the amulet to a man named Jauffre. You can usually find Jauffre on the second floor of the priory itself, reading the book Mixed Unit Tactics which he carries around on him. When approaching him, he will be rather direct and say:

"I'm Brother Jauffre. What do you want?"
The Emperor sent me to find you.
"Emperor Uriel? Do you know something about his death?"
I was there when he died.
"You'd better explain yourself. Now."
He gave me the Amulet of Kings.
"You brought me the Amulet of Kings? This cannot be. Let me see it."
I brought you the Amulet of Kings.
"This cannot be. No one but the Emperor is permitted to handle the Amulet. Let me see it."

Either option will lead to:

[Give Jauffre the Amulet]
"By the Nine! This IS the Amulet of Kings! Who are you? How did you get this? What do you know of the Emperor's death?"
Tell the emperor's last words.
"As unlikely as your story sounds, I believe you. Only the strange destiny of Uriel Septim could have brought you to me carrying the Amulet of Kings."
Who is the Prince of Destruction?
"The Prince of Destruction he referred to is none other than Mehrunes Dagon, one of the lords of the demonic world of Oblivion. The Emperor's words-- "Close shut the jaws of Oblivion"-- certainly suggest that he perceived some threat from Oblivion. But all the scholars agree that the mortal world is protected from the daedra of Oblivion by magical barriers."
"Close shut the jaws of Oblivion"...?
"His meaning is unclear to me as well. The Emperor seemed to perceive some threat from the demonic world of Oblivion. The Prince of Destruction, Mehrunes Dagon, is one of the lords of Oblivion. But the mortal world is protected from the daedra of Oblivion by magical barriers."

Either leads to:

How can Oblivion threaten us, then?
"I'm not sure. Only the Emperors truly understand the meaning behind the rituals of coronation. The Amulet of Kings is ancient. Saint Alessia herself received it from the gods. It is a holy relic of great power. When an Emperor is crowned, he uses the Amulet to light the Dragonfires at the Temple of the One in the Imperial City. With the Emperor dead and no new heir crowned, the Dragonfires in the Temple will be dark, for the first time in centuries. It may be that the Dragonfires protected us from a threat that only the Emperor was aware of."
The Emperor asked me to find his son.
"I am one of the few who know of his existence. Many years ago, I served as captain of Uriel's bodyguards, the Blades. One night Uriel called me in to his private chambers. A baby boy lay sleeping in a basket. Uriel told me to deliver him somewhere safe. He never told me anything else about the baby, but I knew it was his son. From time to time he would ask about the child's progress. Now, it seems that this illegitimate son is the heir to the Septim Throne. If he yet lives."
Where can I find Uriel's son?
"His name is Martin. He serves Akatosh in the Chapel in the city of Kvatch, south of here. You must go to Kvatch and find him at once. If the enemy is aware of his existence, as seems likely, he is in terrible danger. And please, let me know if there's anything you need. My resources here are limited, but I will help in any way I can."

If you have already visited Kvatch, he will instead tell you:

"His name is Martin. He is a priest in the Chapel of Akatosh in Kvatch. Yes, Kvatch. I cannot believe that the attack on Kvatch is a coincidence. The enemy seem to know all our secrets. You must return to Kvatch at once, and rescue Martin if he lives. There is no time to lose! If there's anything you need, please ask. My resources here are limited, but I will help in any way I can."
"I keep a few things here in my chest to resupply traveling Blades. Help yourself to whatever you need."

Find the HeirEdit

This conversation will start Find the Heir, and now you can ask for more information on several topics:

Amulet of Kings
"It will be safest here with me. When you return with Martin, we will figure out our next move."
"One of the youngest Blades ever to serve in the Emperor's personal guard. I am glad to hear that he survived, but I fear he will take the Emperor's death particularly hard."
The Blades
"Yes, Baurus told you right. I am the Grandmaster of the Blades. We serve the Emperor and the Septim bloodline. Talos is our patron. You wonder to find me here? Discretion is our watchword. Only a few of us have the honor to serve publicly in the Imperial Guard."
"The coronation of each new Emperor is sealed when he uses the Amulet of Kings to light the Dragonfires in the Temple of the One. The Dragonfires of Akatosh remain lit until the death of the Emperor. His successor then lights them anew upon ascending to the throne. With Emperor Uriel dead and no successor crowned, the Temple of the One will be dark for the first time in centuries."
Elder Council
"The Elder Council rules in the Emperor's absence, by ancient tradition. Chancellor Ocato heads the Elder Council and is the closest thing the Empire has to a leader right now. But the Blades answer only to the Emperor, of course. We are not an arm of the government."
"He is a priest in the Chapel of Akatosh in Kvatch. He never knew that he was Uriel Septim's son. You need to find him at once and bring him safely back here."
Mehrunes Dagon
"The daedra Prince of Destruction. An inveterate foe of all mortal races. He was involved with Jagar Tharn's plot against the empire years ago. It doesn't surprise me to find his hand in the current calamity."

After which he will get up from his chair, walk to the chest and unlock it, granting you access to weapons, armor, potions, a scroll, but most importantly, a chest that doesn't respawn, so feel free to store any items in there. If you ask for assistance again, he will explain:

"I don't have much here at hand, but you're welcome to anything you need from my chest in the reading room. Prior Maborel and Brother Piner may also be able to help. You should speak to them about it if you haven't already."

When you exit the conversation, he will stress the importance of Martin's safety:

"Waste no time. You must find Martin before the enemy does."

If you re-enter conversation, he will do the same:

"Your first priority now should be to find Martin and bring him back here."

Weynon PrioryEdit

Fighting the Mythic Dawn
Inspecting the chest that held the amulet
Riding to safety

Upon arriving at Weynon Priory with Martin, you will find it is being attacked, starting the quest Weynon Priory. When you've helped Jauffre defeat the attackers in the chapel and approach him he will say:

"I fear the enemy came here for the Amulet of Kings."

If you speak to him, he will be relieved:

"You're back. Thank Talos! They attacked without warning. I was praying in the Chapel when I heard Prior Maborel shout. I had just time to arm myself. The Amulet of Kings! I fear that was the target of this attack. I kept it in a secret room in Weynon House. We need to go see if it is safe."
I'll go check on the Amulet.
"We'll go together. But I fear the worst."

After this he will run to the Priory House. If you manage to enter conversation with him, he will say:

"The Amulet ... is it safe?"

When he has checked the room, he will tell you the grave news:

"They've taken it! The Amulet of Kings is gone! The enemy has defeated us at every turn!"
I found Martin. He is safe.
"So it has not all gone against us. Thank Talos for that! We gained Uriel's heir, and lost the Amulet of Kings. Martin cannot stay here. We have driven them off, but they will be back once they learn of Martin's survival. Which they will."
Where will Martin be safe?
"Nowhere is truly safe against the power arrayed against us. But we must play for time, at least... Cloud Ruler Temple, I think. The hidden fortress of the Blades, in the mountains near Bruma. A few men can hold it against an army. We should leave at once."

At this point, you can ask for some additional information:

Amulet of Kings
"With the Amulet taken by the enemy, we must get Martin to safety at Cloud Ruler Temple."
Cloud Ruler Temple
"Cloud Ruler Temple was built long ago, by the founders of the Blades, back in the days of Reman Cyrodiil. It is high in the mountains near Bruma... our ancient fortress, sanctuary, refuge of last resort. Martin will be as safe there as anywhere."
"You may as well take Prior Maborel's horse from the stable. He won't have use for it any longer."

Upon terminating the conversation, he will express his concern:

"We should get moving. I won't rest easy until Martin is safe at Cloud Ruler Temple."

If approached he will reiterate:

"We should get Martin to Cloud Ruler Temple immediately."
"Is something wrong? Why are we stopping?"

If you re-enter conversation, he will say:

"As a Blade, my place is at Martin's side."

Upon reaching Cloud Ruler Temple:

Cyrus: "Grandmaster, is this ... ?"
Jauffre: "Yes, Cyrus. This is the Emperor's son. Martin Septim."
Cyrus: "My lord! Welcome to Cloud Ruler Temple! We have not had the honor of an Emperor's visit in in many years!"
Martin: "Ah, well, thank you! The honor is mine."
Jauffre: "Come. Your Blades are waiting to greet you."
Jauffre with Martin

The Blades will then gather in the courtyard and Jauffre will give a speech:

Jauffre: "Blades! Dark times are upon us. The Emperor and his sons were slain on our watch. The Empire is in chaos. But there is yet hope. Here is Martin Septim, true son of Uriel Septim!"
Belisarius: "Hail, Dragonborn! Hail Martin Septim! Hail!"
Captain Steffan: "Hail, Dragonborn! Hail Martin Septim! Hail!"
Caroline: "Hail, Dragonborn! Hail Martin Septim! Hail!"
Cyrus: "Hail, Dragonborn! Hail Martin Septim! Hail!"
Jena: "Hail, Dragonborn! Hail Martin Septim! Hail!"
Roliand: "Hail, Dragonborn! Hail Martin Septim! Hail!"
Jauffre: "Your Highness. The Blades are at your command. You will be safe here until you can take up your throne."
Martin: "Jauffre. All of you. I know you all expect me to be Emperor. I'll do my best. But this is all new to me. I'm not used to giving speeches. But I wanted you to know that I appreciate your welcome here. I hope I prove myself worthy of your loyalty in the coming days. That's it. Thank you."
Jauffre: "Well, then. Thank you, Martin. We'd all best get back to our duties, eh, Captain?"

The Path of DawnEdit

Seeking safety
Announcing Martin to the Blades
Taking his place as Grandmaster

After Martin's speech at Cloud Ruler Temple, he will tell you to speak to Jauffre about recovering the Amulet of Kings, starting The Path of Dawn. Jauffre can be found standing outside the entrance to the Great Hall all day long. When you go talk to him, he will start by thanking you and offering a position as a Blade, if you agree he will give you an Akaviri katana:

"You have proven yourself a loyal servant of the Empire, as worthy as any of the Blades to stand by Martin's side during this crisis. As the Grandmaster of the Blades, I would be honored to accept you into our order. Will you join us?"
What are my duties as a Blade?
"The Blades are sworn to the service of the Emperor, as the mortal representative of the Dragon Blood of the divine Talos."
No, not right now.
"Very well. Many serve the Empire in their own way. But we would be honored to have you, if you change your mind."

If you decline and then return once more, you can ask him once more:

Join the Blades
"Have you reconsidered? Are you ready to join our order in service to the Dragon Blood?"
Yes, I will join the Blades.
"It is my honor to welcome you into our ranks as a Knight Brother/Sister of the Blades."

The next time you greet him:

"It is good to be back here. It raises my spirits just to walk these ancient halls again. We will prevail. We must prevail!"
Amulet of Kings
"You're right. We must try to recover the Amulet before the enemy takes it out of our reach. You should go back to the Imperial City. Baurus may have learned something about the assassins. You'll find Baurus at Luther Broad's Boarding House in the Elven Gardens district of the Imperial City."

If asked further questions:

Amulet of Kings
"The Amulet of Kings is the key to everything now. Once we have it back, Martin can use it to light the Dragonfires in the Temple of the One, and reseal the barriers between Oblivion and our world."
Cloud Ruler Temple
"This place was built by Reman Cyrodiil's Akaviri Dragonguard, at the founding of the Second Empire. Since then, it has served the Blades as a headquarters, fortress, and sanctuary. We can protect Martin here until you recover the Amulet of Kings."
The Blades
"This fortress is well-supplied with arms and armor. Use what you need from the armory in the east wing."

As you exit conversation:

"Give my warm regards to Baurus. Tell him he should not blame himself for the Emperor's death. He did well to send you to me."

If you approach him again, he will say:

"I'm surprised to see you here. Have you been to talk to Baurus in the Imperial City yet?"

When you've talked to Baurus, Jauffre will be equipped with a Blades cuirass, Blades greaves, Blades boots and Blades gauntlets. Approaching him now will cause him to exclaim:

"We will exact our revenge on the Mythic Dawn for the Emperor's murder. By the holy blood of Talos, Mankar Camoran will pay for his crimes!"

Approaching him after you speak to Tar-Meena and he will be encouraged:

"It sounds like you and Baurus are making progress in your hunt for the Amulet of Kings. Good work."

If you return to him after having secured the fourth volume of the Commentaries but before going to Green Emperor Way, he'll say:

"Once you locate the Mythic Dawn's shrine to Mehrunes Dagon, we may have a chance to recover the Amulet!"

If Baurus survived the quest, he will be present at Cloud Ruler Temple. Jauffre will be pleased with his presence:

"I'm glad to have Baurus here. He guards Martin night and day. His way of atoning for the death of Emperor Uriel, I suppose."

Dagon ShrineEdit

Jauffre in his Blades Armor at Cloud Ruler Temple

During Dagon Shrine, when you've found out where the shrine is, he will be pleased, should you go greet him at Cloud Ruler Temple:

"Good work locating the Shrine of Dagon. If you can retrieve the Amulet of Kings, we may yet prevail."

After having recovered the Mysterium Xarxes, Jauffre will immediately seek you out with the hope that you've recovered the Amulet of Kings:

"Thank Talos you've returned safely! Do you have the Amulet?"
No. Mankar Camoran escaped with it.
"Please tell me you have some good news..."
Maybe. I have the Mysterium Xarxes.
"Ah. Good. You should take that to Martin right away. He'll be in the Great Hall, reading. He's hardly taken time to sleep since you left."

If approached again:

"You should talk to Martin. He'll want to see the Mysterium Xarxes right away."


After having given the Mysterium Xarxes to Martin, Jauffre will be pleased when approached:

"Good work tracking down the Mythic Dawn's secret shrine. We finally took the fight to the enemy."

He will however express his concern upon greeting you:

"I hope Martin knows what he's doing with that evil book. I fear for what it could do to him if he's not careful."
"Ah, yes. I hope you can help. The gate guards have reported seeing strangers on the road for the past several nights. I cannot leave Cloud Ruler undefended while my men search the whole mountainside, but these spies must be eliminated."
I will find these spies.
"Thank you. Talk to Steffan. He can tell you where he has seen them. Captain Burd in Bruma may also be able to help. I've asked the Countess to have the guard keep an eye out for strangers. Track down the spies and kill them. Find out what they know, and what they're plannning [sic], if possible."

When bidding you farewell, he will re-emphasise:

"I'm counting on you to eliminate those spies. We can't afford to let the Mythic Dawn operate out of Bruma with impunity."

At this point, whenever you enter conversation, he will ask you about your progress:

"I'll feel better when you've eliminated those spies. There's no telling what they may be planning."
"What have you learned about the spies?"
I have nothing new to report.
"Very well. Keep looking. We must uncover those spies and find out what they know."

He will dispatch you with:

"Let me know when you have found and eliminated the Mythic Dawn agents in Bruma."

If you discovered Jearl's Orders without having eliminated the spies, he will be angered about the Mythic Dawn's discovery:

[Show Jauffre Jearl's orders]
"This makes for grim reading. The Mythic Dawn did not take long to locate Martin again. The document speaks of two agents. You need to eliminate both of them."

When exiting conversation he will now say:

"The plans you found make it clear that the Mythic Dawn will soon move against us here. You must eliminate their agents in Bruma."

If you return without having made further progress, he will remind you about your mission:

"You must eliminate both the Mythic Dawn agents in Bruma. We cannot allow them to continue to plot against us."

When you tell him one of the spies has been killed, he will be pleased:

One of the spies is dead.
"Good. But there may still be more spies out there. You should continue to search for their base of operations in Bruma."

If both agents have been killed, but you haven't found Jearl's Orders, he will point out you must be sure there aren't any more spies:

Two of the spies are dead.
"Good work. But you must locate their base and make sure you've eliminated all of them."

If both Jearl and Saveri Faram have been killed, and you'd previously shown Jauffre their orders, he will commend your achievements:

Both the spies are dead.
"Excellent work. I knew I could count on you. The gods did not idly choose you as their agent, whatever you may think. But we have not eliminated the threat against Bruma and Cloud Ruler Temple, only delayed it. I will warn the Countess of the danger. You should speak to Martin. I believe he has made some progress with the Mysterium Xarxes."

If both spies are dead but you hadn't previously shown Juaffre the orders, he will instead say:

[Show Jauffre Jearl's orders]
"Excellent work. I knew I could count on you. The gods did not idly choose you as their agent, whatever you may think. But it is clear that Mankar Camoran will soon bring all his power to bear against Bruma. I will warn the Countess of the danger. You should speak to Martin. I believe he has made some progress with the Mysterium Xarxes."

Either way, upon exiting conversation he will add:

"I will send word to the Countess at once of the danger to Bruma. You should speak to Martin about his progress with the Xarxes."

If you approach him again before speaking to Martin he will urge you to do so:

"Have you spoken to Martin yet? The plans you found make it clear that time is short."

Blood of the DivinesEdit

When you greet Jauffre during the Blood of the Divines quest, he will say:

"So, Martin wants you to recover the Armor of Tiber Septim? I wish there was another way. The Armor is in the Shrine of Tiber Septim, in the catacombs beneath the ruins of Sancre Tor. A holy place, once. But Sancre Tor became evil long ago. No one has returned from the Shrine of Tiber Septim for many lifetimes."
What evil lurks in Sancre Tor?
"I do not know. The catacombs of Sancre Tor were sealed by the first Grandmaster of the Blades. The four mightiest Blades of Tiber Septim's day, Alain, Valdemar, Rielus, and Casnar, went to Sancre Tor and never returned. Here, this is the key to Sancre Tor's outer door. I fear I am sending you to your death, but we have no other choice. You must succeed."
Armor of Tiber Septim
"An ancient relic of the first Emperor, who became the divine Talos, the patron of our Order. After the Battle of Sancre Tor, Tiber Septim gave his armor to the Blades in honor of our role in his victory. The Blades built a shrine in the catacombs of Sancre Tor, on the spot where Tiber Septim received the blessing of Akatosh. The Armor has been there ever since. Before evil came to Sancre Tor, this shrine was a place of pilgrimage for all Blades. But no one has visited the shrine and lived to tell the tale in centuries."

The first time you engage in conversation after he's told you about the Armor of Tiber Septim, he will express his concern over Martin:

"I'm worried about Martin. He does nothing but pore over that evil book all day."

Otherwise, unless you have started Bruma Gate, he will say:

"Have you recovered the Armor of Tiber Septim yet? We need to open the gate to Camoran's Paradise as soon as Martin deciphers the whole ritual."

If instead you not completed Blood of the Daedra yet he will say:

"You should be gathering the items Martin needs for the Mysterium Xarxes ritual. There's no time to lose."

The Siege of BrumaEdit

Bruma GateEdit

After having given Martin either a Daedric artifact to complete Blood of the Daedra or Tiber's Septim's armor to complete Blood of the Divines, he will tell you Jauffre needs to speak to you, starting Bruma Gate. Upon greeting you, Jauffre will explain:

"I've been looking for you. We have a situation in Bruma that I need you to deal with."
"I've just received word from the Countess of Bruma that an Oblivion Gate has opened outside the city. It seems that the Mythic Dawn are putting their plan to attack Bruma into motion. Since you've dealt with these Gates before, I'd like you to help the Countess's guard close this gate. Once they've seen how it's done, they should be able to handle any new gates on their own."
Where is this Gate?
"Captain Burd is waiting for you outside the Bruma city gate. He'll show you the Oblivion Gate. Although I doubt it will be hard to find."

Upon leaving conversation, he will spur you on:

"You should rendezvous with Captain Burd immediately. The sooner that gate is closed the better."

After that, approaching or greeting him will make him point out the matter:

"Have you helped Captain Burd and his men close the Oblivion Gate yet?"
"Don't forget, Captain Burd needs your help to close the Oblivion Gate outside of Bruma."

When you've closed the gate, talking to Jauffre will give you the Allies for Bruma quest:

"Good work. Captain Burd and his guardsmen should be able to handle any additional Gates, at least for now. But the Bruma Guard cannot defend the city indefinitely. The daedra of Oblivion are innumerable; the guardsmen of Bruma are not. We need to gather what allies we can before Bruma is hopelessly besieged. If the Mythic Dawn manages to open a Great Gate here, the city will need a stronger garrison for there to be any hope of defending it. You should speak to the rulers of the other cities of Cyrodiil, as well as the Elder Council. Ask them to send aid to Bruma before it is too late."
What else can I do to help?
"Martin made some progress on the Mysterium Xarxes while you were gone. You should speak to him about it." Or "Keep working on obtaining the items Martin needs for the ritual. Everything else is just buying time for us to get the Amulet of Kings back from Mankar Camoran."

Allies for BrumaEdit

Aid for Bruma
"Bruma cannot hold off the hordes of Oblivion alone. You should ask the rulers of the other cities of Cyrodiil to send help."

Upon leaving conversation he will spur you on:

"You should speak to the rulers of Cyrodiil as soon as possible. The danger to Bruma is growing by the day."

If you gained one ally, he will be angered by the quantity:

"I had hoped for more help. The Empire will stand or fall with Bruma! Have all the other cities abandoned us?"

With less than four cities' aid, he is not satisfied yet:

"Your efforts are starting to pay off. Just knowing we do not stand alone has raised the morale of the Bruma Guard. But I still fear that Bruma will fall before you can complete the ritual. You need to buy Martin more time. Bruma needs more help!"

With less than seven, he will be satisfied:

"You've done well. The Bruma garrison is much stronger now. We should be able to put up a good fight even against a determined assault. I hope it is enough. Bruma must hold out until you can complete the ritual and retrieve the Amulet from Mankar Camoran."

With all the cities' support, he will be surprised by your efforts:

"You've done better than I had hoped. Bruma's garrison is now as strong as we can make it."

Defense of BrumaEdit

After having retrieved the Great Welkynd Stone and returning to Martin, you will hear Jauffre and Martin having a discussion:

Jauffre: "With all due respect, sire, there must be another way. The risk is too great!"
Martin: "I know the risk. I was at Kvatch. But there is no other way. We have no choice."
Jauffre: "The Countess will never agree to it…"
Martin: "She will. She must."
Jauffre: "Very well. The Blades are, as always, at your disposal."

Approaching Martin will net you:

"Ah, here you are! I have good news, of a sort."

To which Jauffre will reply:

"Yes, let's see what he thinks of your plan."

If you ask about the battle plans, Jauffre will say:

Battle Plans
"Martin has made his decision. The Blades stand beside him."

When you've talked to Martin, Jauffre will be equipped with a Blades helmet. When you tell Countess Narina Carvain you're ready for battle, Jauffre will express the importance of Martin's survival during the battle:

"We must protect Martin during the battle. He is the Empire's last hope."

At this point, Jauffre plays much less of a major role in the main quest. At the start of the battle, he permanently loses his essential status. The following dialogue will therefore only be available when Jauffre survives. When you've closed the Great Gate, he will be among the soldiers cheering as you emerge from the Great Gate. He will congratulate you upon greeting you:

"You should be proud of what you did here today, but remember, the war is not yet over. Until you reclaim the Amulet and Martin lights the Dragonfires, the enemy will not be truly defeated."


"Don't give the enemy a chance to recover from their defeat."

When you've talked to Martin after closing the Great Gate, Jauffre will express the importance of recovering the Amulet of Kings as fast as possible:

"Once you're rested and equipped, you should have Martin open the portal to Camoran's Paradise immediately. Don't give the enemy a chance to recover from their defeat."

When Martin has opened the portal, talking to Jauffre will anger him: "You must enter the portal to Camoran's Paradise and reclaim the Amulet of Kings!"

Once you return with the Amulet, you will find Jauffre and his fellow Blades kneeling in a circle around Martin, katanas drawn. Jauffre will then cry out:

"Blades! Do homage to Martin's champion!"

Light the DragonfiresEdit

When you've given the Amulet of Kings to Martin, speaking to Jauffre will cause him to impatiently reply:

"Time is pressing. Martin must relight the Dragonfires before the enemy can stop us."

You can then ask Jauffre some questions:

"Once Martin uses the Amulet of Kings to light the Dragonfires, the barriers between Oblivion and Tamriel will be restored. The Oblivion Gates will close, and Mehrunes Dagon's invasion will have failed."
Elder Council
"Martin is right. Declaring oneself Emperor is a delicate matter. In this case, however, I do not think there should be any dispute. The Elder Council has been governing the Empire since the Emperor's murder. They will be overjoyed to have an heir to crown. They've been unable to solve the Oblivion Crisis. The Empire is falling apart. Only a legitimate Emperor offers any hope."

At this point Jauffre and Martin will mount their horses and follow you to the Imperial Palace.

After finding out the Imperial City is under attack, greeting Jauffre will reveal his fear:

"We have to get Martin to the Temple of the One or Mehrunes Dagon has won after all."

When you've seen Mehrunes Dagon in the flesh, upon greeting Jauffre, he will courageously comment:

"I hope Martin knows what to do now. I will die by his side, if this is the end."

After the defeat of Mehrunes Dagon, the first time you greet Jauffre, he will be astonished:

"A victory beyond hope! You and Martin defeated Mehrunes Dagon in the very moment of his triumph! All hail the Champion of Tamriel!"
"I believe that Martin's sacrifice sealed the gates of Oblivion forever. Tamriel no longer needs the protection of the Dragonfires."
"He truly was the Dragonborn... the last, and perhaps the greatest of all the Septims."
Mehrunes Dagon
"Against all hope, Martin cast him back into Oblivion! He will not trouble our world for long years to come."

When he's at Cloud Ruler Temple, asking about it will express his concern over the Empire:

"This old place is the one thing that gives me some sense of certainty in these uncertain times."

After this, he may greet you with:

"What can I do for you, Blade/Savior of Tamriel?"

Unused DialogueEdit

  • Jauffre has some additional dialogue that's never used in-game:
About the 'Light the Dragonfires' topic:
"To prove he is the true heir, an emperor must first light the dragonfires in the Temple of the One in the Imperial City. Only the true heir can light the dragonfires, and if he has the Amulet of Kings. Akatosh, the Supreme God of Time, gave the Amulet of Kings to St. Alessia, the first emperor, as a god-certain test of the true heir. The Great God of All made a covenant with St. Alessia. So long as a true heir ruled the Empire, the Great God swore to protect the Empire. The very foundation of the Empire is the bond between god and emperor. That a false heir might be crowned... that the test of the Great God might have failed... My heart fails me. It is unthinkable."
When you reached the secret room in the Weynon Priory House, before Jauffre unlocked the door, which is impossible, upon mentioning the Amulet:
"I should have known they could find it. Little can remain hid from a Daedra Lord. I underestimated the enemy. It will not happen again. What of your mission to Kvatch?"
At Weynon Priory about 'Baurus' (topic is never available):
"I am glad to hear that he survived. A small bit of good news in these dark times. But he will take the Emperor's death very hard."
During Weynon Priory quest about Amulet of Kings (topic is never available)
"I fear that the Amulet was the target of this attack. Go and see if it is safe!"
After Blood of the Divines about Armor of Tiber Septim (topic is not available after the quest)
"You have earned a place of honor in the rolls of our Order for recovering the holy relic."
If Mankar Camoran teleported to his Paradise and you returned to Cloud Ruler Temple without retrieving the Mysterium Xarxes, which is not possible:
"You need to get the Mysterium Xarxes from the Mythic Dawn's Shrine of Dagon. It is our only hope to retrieve the Amulet of Kings."
When returning with the Amulet of Kings and speaking to Jauffre before giving the Amulet to Martin. His generic greeting takes precedence:
"You've done it! Victory is within our grasp! Give the Amulet to Martin at once!"


When asked about Jauffre, Brother Piner says:

^1"We are honored to have Grandmaster Jauffre, or Brother Jauffre as he prefers, as a resident here."

During the tutorial, Baurus will explain:

"He's the Grandmaster of the Blades. As the eyes and ears of the Emperor, the Blades don't advertise themselves. We of the Imperial Bodyguard are the public face of the Blades, but most of my brothers serve the Emperor quietly, behind the scenes. You'll find Grandmaster Jauffre at Weynon Priory, living as a simple monk."

Baurus will also say:

"Although you may not think so to meet him. He lives quietly as a monk at Weynon Priory, near the city of Chorrol."

After the tutorial, you can ask around for Jauffre in Chorrol.

Seed-Neeus will say:

"An old cleric with that name comes in now and then. Lives southeast of town on the Black Road at Weynon Priory."

Emfrid will say:

"The old fellow? At Weynon Priory? It's a small community outside the walls, southeast of the Chorrol gate, on the Black Road."

Otius Loran will say:

"A great man, and a true believer, deep in faith and wisdom. He's not part of our community here, but a resident of Weynon Priory, the monastery southeast of town."

Martin will, when asked during the quest Blood of the Divines, tell you:

"[...] How then to obtain the blood of a god? But Jauffre solved it. The blood of Tiber Septim himself, who became one of the Divines. This is a secret remembered only by the Blades, passed down from one Grandmaster to the next. Jauffre should tell it to you himself."


  • During the Weynon Priory quest, Jauffre can be a useful follower because he is an essential NPC with good combat skills. However, during Light the Dragonfires he is less useful because he is no longer essential.
  • He has some voice files voiced by Wes Johnson, the voice for male Imperials.
  • On his death, a new sword is added to the wall above the fireplace in Cloud Ruler Temple.
  • As with numerous other NPCs, Jauffre cannot be influenced through the Speechcraft minigame.
  • Jauffre also appears in the Jaws of Oblivion card expansion for Legends.
