Sir Thedret is a Redguard crusader added by the Knights of the Nine official plug-in. He is located at first at Fort Bulwark, where he is involved in the quest Wisdom of the Ages.
While imprisoned he will only have sack cloth pants and four restore health potions. After he joins the Knights of the Nine his armor is replaced by the standard Knights of the Nine outfit: a Knights of the Nine cuirass and shield, chainmail greaves, gauntlets, helmet, and boots. He is then armed with a leveled longsword and bow with silver arrows. He will also carry a russet felt outfit, rugged pants, and a pair of russet felt shoes. Sir Thedret has the ability to use a leveled set of crusader spells as well as one minor Restore Health spell.
The first possibility you will have to encounter Sir Thedret will be at Fort Bulwark. You will discover that he has been imprisoned by the Conjurers that control the fort. As you approach his cell he will call out to you for help: "Please! Set me free!" "Open the gate, please. I must get out of here." "Help me!" Freeing him from his cell will have him thank you by saying: "Thank you for freeing me." Speaking to him will have him greet you by saying: "Thank you for rescuing me. I've lost track of how long they've held me here." Asking him who he is will have him tell you his name and how he came to be imprisoned: "I am Sir Thedret. I came here seeking the Shield of the Crusader, and was ambushed by these... these cowards. They've held me here since." Asking him what he was doing imprisoned will have him explain what happened: "I've been held prisoner by these scoundrels for the longest time. They want to know how to reach the Shield, and believed I would help them. When I refused, they locked me here, and only let me out to torture me. They got nothing from me." Asking him for assistance will have him inform you that he can not accompany you due to his injuries: "I can't go with you, if that's what you mean. I'm too weak... I need to rest. Once I have my strength, I will certainly join your cause. You'll have to go on alone. But the knowledge I've gained may be of use to you." Asking him what he knows that may be of use to you will have him pass on the information that he kept secret from his captives: "Before finding this place, I learned a bit about those who created it. It's designed to keep the Shield hidden and safe. A phrase kept coming up in the writings I found: 'When the eyes of the Guardians are upon you, Julianos will show you favor.' I'm not sure how, but I just know it's a clue for making it safely through these ruins. You're the only one I have told. I hope it helps you." After this he will end the conversation and begin sneaking out of the fort. Speaking to him again will have him say: "I must get out of this pit, and get myself some rest. We'll meet again, don't worry." As you part ways he may offer you one final wish of luck: "Good luck on your quest. I'm sure we'll meet again."
After recovering the Shield you will encounter Sir Thedret once more at the Priory of the Nine, eager to serve the order. If you were the one to free him he will happily greet you by saying: "Did I not say we would meet again? I am here, and ready to serve. I will join your order, and together we will fight this new threat against the Nine. Glory to the Nine!" If you didn't free him from captivity in Fort Bulwark he will instead introduce himself by saying: "Hail, brave Knight. You do not know me, but you have saved me. I was imprisoned within Fort Bulwark. When you cleansed the fort of those who sought to steal the Shield, I was able to escape. And so I traveled here, and I am joining your Order. I wish to serve the Nine, and repay the debt I owe you." Regardless of whether you freed him or not, he joins the order without giving you a chance to protest.
Once you have recovered all of the artifacts you will be confronted by Sir Thedret at the Priory of the Nine. He will inform you that the Prophet has arrived at the Priory. "Lord Crusader! The Prophet is here -- he's just arrived! He seemed to know you were coming... told me to wait for you. And here you are! Come. He is preaching to the assembled Knights in the Chapel. You should speak to him at once." Speaking to Sir Thedret again will have him remind you that you should speak to the Prophet: "The Prophet has arrived. He is preaching to the assembled Knights in the Chapel. You should speak to him at once."
After using The Blessing of Talos to completely destroy Umaril the Unfeathered your fellow knights will assume that you were struck down and will place your body in the undercroft. After rising, victorious over your Umaril, Sir Thedret will be the one to discover that you are still alive: "Lord Crusader! How can this be? You... you're alive! It's a miracle! I heard voices in the undercroft and I came to investigate... You vanished in Garlas Malatar. After the battle, we searched further into the ruin and found you next to Umaril's corpse. You had no wounds on your body, but you were dead. I saw it with my own eyes -- you did not draw breath! We laid you to rest in the undercroft... we kept your death a secret. We feared what would happen if our enemies thought you were dead."
At this point you will offer a comment on these events by either saying, "The wonders of the Nine are many." or, "Even death cannot stop the Crusader."
If you choose the former he will voice his agreement, after which he will ask you if you managed to defeat Umaril: "Indeed they are... We knew you had succeeded in destroying Umaril's physical form, but it seemed that you had met the same fate as Pelinal Whitestrake. Tell me... was Umaril destroyed?" If you choose the other potential option he will instead say: "I can see that! I... you'll have to excuse me... I need a moment to collect my thoughts... We found Umaril's body next to yours, but it seemed that you had met the same fate as Pelinal Whitestrake. We didn't know... Tell me... Umaril... what happened? Did you succeed in pursuing him into the spirit realm, as the Prophet said?"
You will once again be given two options to reply to his question, your previous choice being irrelevant to your potential responses as the options are the same for either path. You may either say, "I have severed his very soul." or, "Of course. I destroyed him utterly."
If you choose the former he will say: "Then he is destroyed! We've won -- and you're alive! I have to tell the others!" If you choose the latter he will instead say: "I never doubted you, Crusader. But I must tell the others that you're alive!" At this point he will run off to inform the other Knights. If you speak to him again at this point he will tell you to follow him: "Come with me! We have to tell everyone that you're alive!" Once you are both outside he will give a speech to summarize what has happened: "Knights of the Nine, hear me! Today we have witnessed undeniable proof of the strength and the might of the gods we serve! Slain in battle with the dread Umaril, by the grace and mercy of the Nine, the Crusader lives again! How can this be, you ask? What of our foe? What has become of Umaril The Unfeathered? Umaril has been slain by the Crusader! His very spirit cast into the void and destroyed for all eternity -- he will never rise again. Let us give thanks to the Nine! By their power, the Crusader has rid the world of Umaril forever! Hail the Lord Crusader!"
- Wisdom of the Ages: Retrieve the Shield of the Crusader from Fort Bulwark.
- The Blessing of Talos: Obtain the ninth relic: The Blessing of Talos.
- Umaril the Unfeathered: Defeat Umaril and kill him for good, in both the physical and spiritual planes.
- Unlike the rest of the Knights of the Nine, Sir Thedret is essential and cannot die (except after the questline is complete). This may be because he must greet you when you return to the priory.
- Apparently, when you freed Thedret from the cell at the fort, you arrived just in the nick of time; on a table in the next room is a note by a conjurer to give him one more week to talk, and if he doesn't, he is to be executed in a "preferably painful" way.
- Sir Thedret joins the Knights of the Nine faction after completing the quest Wisdom of the Ages.
