“You talk as if you’re a hero in some story. But these slain were not some blighted army of fabled ghouls. They were men. Fathers, husband, sons. All human, like you and me. Your face isn’t red because you’re dog tired. You struck a man’s head off, and were showered with his blood. This isn’t a story, kid. This is real. Real as it gets.” – Jay Valdez
Easter Egg Alert - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving: The Headless Horseman, is said to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper who had his head shot off by a stray cannonball during “some nameless battle” of the American Revolutionary War. He “rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head”. And he appears in Skyrim. He can be found riding around nightly and seems to want you to follow him. As you run after him, turn on subtitles because he will talk as you chase him. But he’s often too whispery to hear properly. If a nearby enemy gets killed, he whispers about it. If he loses the race to beat the sun to Hamvir’s rest, he will whisper about that too. He’s no danger to you, but he is very fast.
“To fly higher than the eagle, to run faster than the deer, to swim as freely as the fish, to have the cunning of the coyote and the sleekness of the lion ― this is to possess the spirit that sings in the wind and cries in the fire, the spirit that shall never leave my home.”
