Anhaedra hates his life by TheMinttu Anhaedra hates his life by TheMinttu
"After I kill you, I will rape your corpse. Don't worry, I'll be gentle."
- Anhaedra

Do you remember Anhaedra? He has the worst job in Tamriel.


I don't like summer. When all sorts of deadlines of different things aren't pressing down on me, I can't seem to get anything done. A number of drawings, including this one, have been sitting in my hard drive for about an eternity, and I decided to pull out a few and see what I could do with them.

Hehe, Love fucking with that dude

He is a lot of fun. Love to taunt him every chance I get.

I wonder what I can dig up on this character and his actions during the Oblivion Crisis. Also, you've captured his boredom perfectly.

This guy is one of my all-time Morrowind favorites for that line alone. Even years later, I've met few antagonists with better lines. :D

Poor Guy XD

I always trolled him just to get this line XD
Since my Nervarin is probably still alive I bet he'd love to have a rematch one day he's back from the Oblivion XD

If that Silver Longsword means what I think it means, yea I felt bad for him. My first thought was "Man how long have you been doing this?" I was tempted to bring him a bottle of Sajuma and just shrugging and walking away.

Taunting this guy was always fun...

Anhaedra:If you are here for pilgrimige,just read the description on the stupid rock.

I don't know if it's like this for everyone, but I had already killed him, and then I returned (several in-game months later) and there he was again! He recognized me, and though I should have learned my lesson the first time (I met him) So... I though it was hilarious, because basically they sent him back to Mundus to stand there again another life of eternity? xD
HeiMaoLee Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I wonder what was he doing during the Crysis of Oblivion.)
Sslaxx Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2014
Raping corpses?

That taunt button cannot be pushed only once.

*taunt the Daedra*

Ha ha ha that was my favorite pilgrimage. Well done.

Oh I loved this guy! Totally made my day when I met him.
FreakieGeekie Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Amazing! :heart:
Poor Anhaedra has such a lousy job.
Oh, by the way, you don't have to kill him or any of the other Dremora lords: you can run away and the quest is still considered to be completed :la:
JoCharlie266 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012
After reading that quote and checking its veracity, I think I may have to pick up my copy of Morrowind and actually play it.
TheAnonymusWimp Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'd kill anyone to be able to do that withought practicing on anything. Oh, exept my SKYRIIIIM and OBLIVIOOON!
exocolumn Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011
Great work!
Dememty Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
I was playing that while I was younger, and I pretty much went: "WTF?!" I thought it was a fun safe family game :XD:

Oh your art rules by the way :B
Not-So-Handsome Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
You captured his bored/irritated expression perfectly! Well done!
Jumatatu Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep. I just killed him about three hours ago XD

"Ha! Fine words from one born from the wrong end of a guar." :D
Vivec was really sick (I read their lessons again recently ...what a crazy one s/he was...)
At least your artwork does Anhaedra great justice! It looks seriously gorgeous, the armor looks so fine!
...I guess Anhaedra is now back to Oblivion after Vvardenfell was destroyed (I CANT believe they did that! Where was Divayth Fyr!?)
dremoralvr01 Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I hope they bring him back if they do a 6th Oblivion......hopefully theyll go that far because they just cant stop at dragons (Skyrim, which will be awesome)
Porkcowyumminess Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011
I felt so bad for him that i didn't kill him and visited him weekly after that (until my copy of Morrowind was destroyed)....

The temple gives out the WORST. JOBS. EVER.
Dremoraar Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2011
Wow...I...LOVE IT.
not-really-living Featured By Owner May 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It was fun to kill him the third time.

I didn't play Morrowind yet (unfortunately.. :( ) but my brother bought it and loves it ^^
mhm hell.. school can be so annyoing^^
KisaDarknessReign Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011
Oh, this is great. xD He's one of the few minor characters that I feel sorry for but made me laugh. Great job.
RocCenere Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If I remember right he was one of my most favourite characters of all time.
Such a champ.

Thanks for notifying me! I reported that one.

What is this from! The quote made me laugh in a crazy/completely insane/horrible/evil way!
Sabishii-Aizen Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010
Ahhh, I remember him. When I heard that line it was the first time I was actually afraid to fight something in the game. o_o Then when I came back to Maar Gan, and saw him again, I was like "HOSHIT RUN AWAY! D:"
FunkyPanda Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2010
I love you. Really, I really do.

I remember the first time I played Morrowind, I stumbled into the shrine and was like 'lulwut?' so I taunted him a bunch. I was very confused when he suddenly was telling me he would not only kill me, but also would rape me. I was somewhat comforted by the fact that he would be gentle. Of course, he just walks away after killing you. xD

Anyways, love. It's awesome. <3
VictoriaDAEDRA Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2010
My favourite dremora ^____^
Torkolv97 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2010   Traditional Artist
too bad he's only in morrowind, i have oblivion. I want to see an elder scrolls game where all of the provinces and the empire are available, that includes morrowind, Cyrodiil, skyrim, black marsh, elsweyr, hammerfell, orcinium, summerset isles, and all the others. It would be nice to see the homelands of all the races. And to be able to play as a dremora, like a renegade kynval or something like that.
Commander-Afro Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010
I totally love this guy! I was like 11 when I played the game so the whole rape thing made me giggle for about three hours. xD
LunaSheWolf Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2010
he was the only reason i visited that town XD
Exodus-9 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2010
amazing job, daedra, liches and dark elves are awsome.
hikaritoyami Featured By Owner May 30, 2010
I remember. I loved those Daedra, they were forced to do some demeaning things: "Open the stupid chest." Oblivion lacked that sort of playfulness to it, Shivering Isles excluded.
EbonyShroud Featured By Owner May 3, 2010   Digital Artist
I remember this guy! He attacked me with the rest of the temple when I pulled an epic fail and tried selling all the food I stole to the owner.

The detail in the armor is amazing. His position is perfect for portraying how bored he is. Poor guy, he must have been thrilled when the Oblivion Gates started opening.
