Windhelm is not a friendly city. One day, J’Zhirr sees a couple of Nords harassing a Dunmer woman called Suvaris Atheron. They accuse the Dunmers of using up their resources but not joining in the Stormcloak’s cause. They then suggest that Dunmers are all Imperial spies. Before they leave, they threaten to abduct her at night and torture her to make her tell the truth.
Suvaris says that such incidents are a common occurrence in Windhelm, a city she describes as a haven of prejudice and narrow thinking. Anyone who is not a Nord is a fair game for their bullying.
