Madesi runs a jewelry stall at Riften’s marketplace. He is also one of the few remaining traditional Argonian jewelers in Tamriel. He makes and sells his own work at the stall. The recent unrest has made the roads unsafe and Madesi has trouble getting a good supply of raw materials. He also complains that Brynjolf keeps draining the people’s pocket with his stupid miracle cures.
Brynjolf’s plan is for J’Zhirr to steal Madesi’s silver ring from the strongbox Madesi keeps at his stall. But we will not keep the ring, for the ring is destined for another’s pocket.
