I am writing this in hopes that whomever finds it will read and chronicle my life into their memory and learn some of Tamriels dark secrets as well as fallacy and frailty in some of its religious beliefs. I will inscribe in this text the many adventures I had as well as the misadventures. This is not written for my death but I fear my days of traveling openly and broadly are over. I will begin with my early childhood moving to my young adulthood, death and rebirth before ending my tale. It is long and not for feint of heart. Do not attempt to locate me for it will not end well. So begins the tale of Galdryn Arethi, vampire assassin and three banners bard.
