* INIGO Introduction :)

Who is Inigo?

Inigo is a fully voiced khajiit adventuring companion with thousands of lines of unique dialogue. He's essential. He’ll level alongside you. He’ll avoid most traps. If you’re sneaking he won’t chatter. If you talk to him while sneaking he’ll whisper. He can run out of arrows. He’s highly skilled in archery, one-handed, and sneak. He has unique, random combat dialogue for most enemies. Your morality is his morality. He tells stories, sings, and is influenced by your time together.

PLEASE NOTE: Although Smartbluecat is a member on this forum, he would GREATLY appreciate it if you could please report any issues you have with Inigo

on the relevant Oldrim/SE Nexus 'Posts' pages (after carefully checking the FAQ first). You will find support there. Redirect links below.

Issues reported via pm will possibly go unanswered due to how EXCEPTIONALLY busy he is.

The more people who don't read the documentation and ask SBC to personally solve their issues, the longer V3 will take ;)

Thank you all for your co-operation. :)

    ~Forgive and Forgotten~
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    (CONTINUED: Part 4)

         The temple is far different then the one in Whiterun. It is clear marriages are held here. A shiny and well kept statue of Mara stands in the back, her sad eyes weep for those who do not know love. A few priests and priestesses walk around, cleaning, praying and talking to visitors. It is peaceful. I walk up to the shrine, say a prayer, and leave the temple. I do not want to linger too long, I've had my fair share of chanting.

         I walk down the stairs and under the archway and make a left. If I am correct, the jail is attached to the keep. I keep walking until I am met with the opening to the stone walls of the keep. Steps ascend on either sides of a planter and a few butterflies flit about. Swords can be heard hitting training dummies to my left and I can see an archway to the right. I take the right side and pass a guard as I enter the jail. Entering the doorway, I feel a cool air cover me. A candle dances on a table and I turn left at a corner. A guard sits in a chair, and grunts at me, "You're not supposed to be down here..." He stops though and looks closely at me, "Oh, apologies, I hadn't realized it was you. Of course you may enter." He unlocks the door and sits back down.

         I walk forward and come to a table, I look down and notice a note. It speaks of some crazy cat who is paying them to let him stay in prison, it mentions a key. I lazily look to my right, I see a small strongbox on the mantle of the fireplace and walk to it. The guard at the table in the room doesn't look up from her book. I take the key and return to the table where the note was. I turn my attention to my right, where the jail cells are. I can hear a voice speaking. It is rough yet somehow smooth. I follow it and sure enough, the familiar voice comes from a familiar blue blur sitting in the first left cell. He is speaking to a dragonfly and is in only his loin cloth. I can't help but chuckle at the sight.

         I unlock the cell and enter slowly. He stops talking and looks up at me. His eyes widen for a moment before he speaks. "Come to kill me at last, have you? Thank the gods, I can bare the guilt no longer..." I can only look at him in shock. Yet I am not surprised he knows me. I have been catching glimpses and hearing his voice in my dreams for some time now. However, now I knew they were memories. I lean on the dresser that sits on the wall behind him, he does not turn around, but his head shifts slightly so he can see from the side of his vision. 

         "I do not know what you mean." I say, coolly, truthfully. He explains. He spills forth so many words. They hurt my heart and make sense.
    "You tried to kill me? But if you thought I was dead, then why wait for me here?" I ask. He explains that he heard great tales of a hero that matched my description. I think back on the Companions and the war. I walk away from the dresser and stand in front of him. I pull out a set of robes I had on me and pass them to him. "Come Inigo, repay your debt with the blood of my foes." He takes the robes and smiles, "YES! Or die defending you!!" He puts on the robes and gathers his things. I wait for him by the railing of the cell block, watching the other prisoners. He joins me with a smile and we walk out of the Riften jail together.

         I can only forgive at this point, for I had already forgotten his sins. Only his words tell me of my past, and I do not know if they are true. I do know, however, that they fit and that my dreams led me to him.

         It takes a certain level of  courage to admit when you have messed up. By that standard, Inigo is the bravest cat I've met. He sits across from me, shifting his robes that I gave him and looking over all nervous. Not even an hour earlier he explained to me our connected past. It made so much sense, at least to a fault. There are still gaps in the story; but with his bad memory from skooma and my complete lack of memory, it is good enough.

         We sit in the Inn, it is quiet, most of the townsfolk are out and about at this hour. The green scaled man puts down our food. Inigo has ordered a sweetroll. I pick up my bread and take a bite. Chewing it slowly while I watch him. He is checking pockets and loosening any fabric that is too tight. His tail flicks as he catches sight of me and he stops fidgeting.

         I put down my bread and take a swig of mead. "So, tell me about your self Inigo, some of your past." He blinks but gives me a weak smile. But he does not shy away from sharing information. He tells me how he was abandoned with his twin brother by his mother. How it was an act of mercy, for they faced death. How his fur is a dark omen in some villages. He told me of the orphanage he lived in and the former assassin parents that adopted him and his brother. He told me of travels and of his brother's early death. He was finishing up his story as the sun began to set. "And then there was you and how you came and found me. That is all I have my friend."

         Friend. A word so odd to me. Family, shield-mates, hero. All words I knew well. But friend. It sounded so odd, yet so...right. I smiled at him and thanked him for the story. He smiled back and suggested rest. So we both went up to grab a few hours of sleep before tackling the awaiting adventure that stood before us.

    (CONTINUED: Part 2)

         I stand in the doorway of his room, light filters in through windows and bug sized holes in the wall. Inigo slumbers, but restlessly. He seems to suffer from unpleased dreams. Much like I do. Inigo was not in my dream last night, however. My dreams have gone back to the winged beast and the fires that burn hot and strong.

         Inigo shifts in his sleep again, letting out a sort of whine you'd hear from a kitten. His claws clutch at the bed before releasing a moment later. I quietly sigh and leave him be, closing the door lightly behind me. I gather the rest of my things and head downstairs, I tell the Inn keep that I am heading to the stables and to tell my blue companion where I've gone if he comes down before I'm back. I toss her a coin and she nods.

         As I head for  the door a weasel of a  man stops me. He asks me if I am looking to make some gold. I pause for a moment and ask myself the same question. I wasn't sure what I'd do after the war, but the idea of being a mercenary wasn't unappealing. I nod and he goes on to explain his elaborate horse stealing plan. Horse thief....why did that sound familiar? I shake off the thought and tell him I'll do it, but I expect good compensation. He agrees and gives me the rest of the needed information and I leave the Inn.

         Riften is warm and buzzing and I love it. I happily gaze at the tops of the massive trees that peak over the wall ahead of me and make my way through the front gate. I turn to my left and walk to my horse that is napping in the stable. I whisper softly to him as I pet his side and wake him up, he nuzzles me as a greeting and I scratch his neck. This poor war horse has been on the road as much as I have since joining the war effort and now he gets to enjoy a long rest. I pull out a brush from my bag and begin to groom him, he flicks his tail and lets out a happy neigh as I do so.

         As I'm finishing up with my horse, Inigo comes out of the gate, I hear him calling to me, "My Friend, where are you!? Oh! There you are." He smiles a huge smile as he walks up to me. "Good morning Inigo." I say as I put away the horse's brush.

         "Good morning! Is this your steed? He is BEAUTIFUL!" He lets out a low whistle and asks to pet the horse. I nod and he does so, gently and with great care. "By the way, do you know how to whistle? It is a great form of communication on the road!" I reply with a yes and a short whistle of my own. "Excellent! I have this great book about whistling. I have finished reading it, so here! I want you to have it!" He hands me a book and I thank him with a warm smile.

         He beams at me. His bright smile shows clearly in his blue fur. It is a nice sight to behold.
    Before I could forget, I tell him about a job offer and ask his opinion on being Sell Swords.
    "I am all for making gold my friend! And this time I will not have a Skooma addiction to cloud my mind! I am all for it if you trust me to be your partner again." He looks at me eagerly and I smile. "Of course I do Inigo." He gives a quick jump of joy and we get ready for our first job as a team again.

    (CONTINUED: Part 3)

         An arrow flies through the small square port hole on the guard tower and the last outside guard can be heard falling down the steps. We sneak into the tower and I search his body for any coins, and happen to find a key. I give a thumbs up to Inigo and we make our way to the lower back door. We unlock the door, slip in and then slip out, the horse papers in hand and no blood shed on the inside. We quietly turn the corner and reach the gorgeous white horse that is in the stable. I pet him and calm him down before leading him around the corner of the hill and out of sight. Inigo gives a quiet whoop as we get to cover.

         "It is a shame we had to kill the guards outside," I say as I pet the horse. "It is true my friend, but they would of killed us if they saw us, there was no avoiding it." Inigo gives a very strong nod as reassurance.  We begin to walk to the meeting place that was agreed upon. I notice Inigo looking at the horse, gazing lovingly at the white mane and gentle eyes. Frost gives Inigo a nuzzle and he laughs his giddy laugh.

         We approach the man, the sun catches in his oily and stringy hair. His beady eyes look at the horse with great greed. And I get an overwhelming feeling that I should not give him the horse. We talk, and when he asks me to hand over the reigns, I look at Inigo. He looks saddened at the thought of giving this sweet creature to this filthy man. "What if I want to keep the horse?" He scoffs and I can hear Inigo quietly click out his sword. "I don't this so!" He yells before jumping at us. But before he can even pull his blade, Inigo's sword is buried in his gut. I didn't even let go of the reigns. I take a moment to calm the now spooked horse as Inigo wipes his blade on the mans shirt. "Fool," Inigo hisses.

         After taking my payment from his coin pouch, we make our way back to Riften. As we get the horse set up in the stable, Inigo asks me what I'm going to do with two horses. "Actually Inigo, I want you to have Frost." His ears perk up instantly. "You mean the popular smelling horse with abandonment issues and hopes of a brighter future? What a gift!" He hugs the neck of Frost and thanks me through the horses fur. "My very own steed, wow." His tail dances wildly for the rest of the night.
