Skyrim Diary - Entry 7 - Delphine
Upon entering Kynesgrove I was met by a fleeing villager who told me to run because a dragon was hovering over the burial mound. Delphine shouted to me "Come on let's go"
We ran up to the burial mound and the dragon that attacked Helgen was perched on a rock saying something in dragon tongue to the mound & then with burst of light a dragon came out of the mound. It was am amazing sight to see a dragon being bought back to life, the dragon who attacked Helgen then turned to me & said "You do not even know our tongue, do you? Such arrogance, to dare take for yourself the name of Dovah !"
He then flew off & the dragon out of the mound started to attack, so I charged in with my shield & sword but it flew up into the sky. Lydia grabbed her bow & fired off a few arrows to get its attention, "get it to land" I shouted. I then blasted off a few fireballs at the dragon who then turned around and flew straight at me, I dodged out of the way for it to crash to the ground & then slashed him with my red eagle sword whilst casting fire magic, it gave out a scream & I dealt the final blow.
I turned to look at Lydia who gave a sigh of relief & Delphine turned round and said "You are the Dragonborn" I'm beginning to lose track of how many dragons I have killed now & I am still no closer to finding out why they are here & what they want?
Delphine then explained she is one of the last members of the Blades that serve the dragonborn in hunting dragons. Their numbers have dwindled over the years because of a war with the Thalmor where they suffered heavy casualties. She is convinced that the Thalmor have something to do with the dragons returning, her plan is to infiltrate the Thalmor Embassy in search of information. I am happy to go along with this because information is also what I am after, Delphine then set off saying she needed some days to gather intel on the Thalmor & the Embassy, she will meet me back in Riverwood.
It's been a long day, so I decided to return home to Whiterun.
