Slythe Seringi is a Dunmer warrior who lives at Shetcombe Farm. He had attempted to warn Kvatch of the ‘Sunken One’ a creature or being he believed to exist that would destroy Kvatch.
After Kvatch’s destruction at the hands of the Oblivion gate Slythe felt guilty and certain it was the work of the ‘Sunken One ‘. In an attempt to appease it he traveled to Sandstone Cavern without any armor, weapons, and an offering of precious gems. Slythe’s journey failed and his body is found within the cavern.
"The Sunken One strikes swift and hard. He swats those who oppose Him as if they did not exist at all. The excuses of man fall upon deaf ears. The Sunken One has no pity; He has no mercy, He only sits below and passes sentence." -Slythe Seringi
"Man may be fallen in His eyes, but they must have time to learn The Sunken One's teachings. Destroying man now would be a waste, when I am certain that given the chance, they will come to see His ways. My weapons will be my will and my word." -Slythe Seringi
