When a spate of murders is committed in cold blood and without an arrest, the Brotherhood instigates an investigation to recruit the killer.Usually the serial killings must only go on so long as it takes the Brotherhood to discover the identity of the killer, at which point they dispatch a courier with a letter requesting the murder of a specific person. Of the remorseless guild of paid assassins and homicidal cutthroats?Join us, and you'll find the Dark Brotherhood to be all that, and so much more.
Whenever a member breaks one of the five tenets of the Dark Brotherhood, a spirit called the Wrath of Sithis will attack that person in his or her sleep.
At this point, the Hero is tasked with the killing of an angry old man known as Rufio, who lives in the ironically named Inn of Ill Omen.
Once Rufio is dead, the Hero must sleep and Lucien Lachance will visit them and offer a membership.
The Dark Brother or Sister must defeat this ghost in order to gain re-admission into the Dark Brotherhood.
It is unknown whether this spirit is actually from or related to Sithis, or if it is merely a tool used by the Brotherhood to keep members in line.
