So, I'm probably rehashing old information for all the veterans here, but it's probably better than resurrecting a necro. This is from the Imperial Library lore on Ayrenn, and according to the IL, originally from the ESO official site. I don't remember reading this detail, and I cannot confirm it in the original (the link appears to connect to an empty page), so take it with a grain of salt.

Now, some of you may have heard wild tales about Princess Ayrenn's adventures during her time away from Summerset — that she sailed as first mate with a pirate captain from Anvil, disguised herself as a Dunmer in order to read the Indigo Scrolls in the vaults of Necrom, bested the Dervishes of Rihad at their own sword-dance, and even outdrank Queen Mabjaarn Flame-Hair of Windhelm in a mead-slamming contest. All myths and tales, I assure you, preposterous and absurd. Our queen was merely preparing for Praxis and Ceremoniarchy in her own fashion of independent study.

Now, in the opinion of this crazy Breton, that's a lass that could be an Empress!

Hah! You clearly appear to misread this text. Our glorious Thalmor organization is stating that none of those things happened. They are absurd rumors with no support in factual information whatsoever.*Laughs nervously* Our Queen, Her Enlightened Majesty Queen Ayrenn Arana Aldmeri, is completely respectable and was preparing to take the throne after the death of our great deceased leader, High King Hidellith of Alinor. Thus I, as do the Thalmor conclude she did none of those things...
*Looks left and right*
None of Them... All myths and tales...
*Looks left and right more frantically*
None!!!
*Picks up hem of robe and runs away to the nearest Thalmor administration*

Allow me to file that right next to "Ayrenn is a spaceship from the future".


Why yes, I do happen to be a spider zombie cyborg, whose entire race had vanished into the ether, living underground in a zombie cave run by a wizard.

Wait so the thalmor don't want people to think that Ayrenn did all that stuff,

She seems like such a bad-ass.


Gone to a better MMO, soz guys, it was fun.

Because being a bad-ass is not how proper Altmer behave. The Thalmor want to preserve the true Elven way of life, and going around adventuring is not part of the true Elven way of life. Also, I don't really think adventuring makes one qualified to lead anyways.

Don't get me started on the Ayrenn is KINMUNE. Its crazy in a good way but got to admit I actually like Kirkbride's take on the 5th and 9th era. Anyways I thought Zenimax changed/simplified Ayrenn's backstory. So really she's not a 9th era Drone... or is she? o_o

Well, after being a pirate, a thief, a dervish, and apparently Irish, saying Ayrenn is a robot from the future is not THAT far fetched.

But you wouldn't think that saying she was powerful enough to trick the dark elves is a good idea, I mean maybe cut the pirate stuff, but even if it didn't appeal to the Altmer, surely having a Queen who has some proof of being powerful would be a good idea.

You can't argue with the Thalmor. Cus' the Thalmor are crazy. They see you don't consent to their way of life they be like
"AW HELL NAW!" They'll sneak into your house and cut your eyelashes off, your eyelashes man! They don't care if you tricked the Dunmer them eyelashes are gone! Then you'll try to run away, far far away but they track you down and tie you up! They tie you up real tight! Then they drag you back and be like,
"I guess you didn't learn when we cut your eyelashes off", and then they read you The Lusty Argonian Maid over and over and over and over and over and over
Please no! No more! I can't take hearing about Crantius Colto's chamber's or his spear or his loaf of bread! For the Divine's Sake, make it stooop!
Ahem...
Sorry about that, I think I just had a mental breakdown...

*Eyes widen slowly as he reads in disbelief*
What?! No one ever makes it out alive to tell the tale...
Hmm... Going to have to bring him back in... At least he doesn't know about our secret weapon...

Third Emissary! Bring out... THE RACK!!!

Emmisary! Where did the scum go?!
*Casts detect filth spell*
*Sees rapidly fading away brown smudge of mongrel blood*
There he Is! The filth of his mongrel blood betrays him!
*Third emissary puts on glass piloting helmet and pulls down the visor*
It will be done High Justiciar.
*He gets in a modified Fokker fighter mixed with a Sunbird and lifts off after the filth*
Hah! The Filth thinks it can run!

*looks to his right to see Knight Paladin Gelebor leaving a grocery store. He runs over to him and puts him in a headlock and presses a sword to his throat*
Come any closer and the Snow elf gets it!

*Sees filthy breton, now visible, pressing a blade to the only known living pure Falmer (Now living in the dominion to ensure his safety) Stops abruptly*
NO!
*Lowers staff and pulls out radio transmitter which he moves slowly to his mouth*
Emissary, cease fire at once. The filth is holding Agent G hostage.
*Voice through static* Yes, High Justiciar. Requesting Permission to land.
Permission Granted, Over and out.
*Lowers radio transmitter as Sunbird/Fokker fighter lands nearby*
Now let's take this nice and slowly...
