Nerevar Betrayed by Velothii Nerevar Betrayed by Velothii
"[...] But the Tribunal had become as greedy as Kagrenac upon hearing of the power of the Heart and they coveted it. They made ritual as if to summon Azura as Nerevar wanted but Almalexia used poisoned candles and Sotha Sil used poisoned robes and Vivec used poisoned invocations. Nerevar was murdered." - Nerevar at Red Mountain

This began as another brush test thing, still kinda messy cuz I eventually lost track of my layers :iconotlplz:
I tried to leave Sotha Sil's expression kind of ambiguous as you never really find out what he thought about all this (and he was Nerevar and Vivec's mentor after all)

(Morrowind and characters are (C) Bethesda)

By "poisoned candles", everyone in that portrait is exposed to the burning fumes. As for the robes, its interior must have been laced with a powerful neural toxin.
I don't know anything about "poisonous invocations", but then I can only imagine a line of swear words in this matter.
As a scientist, I try to assume as much as I could.

Wow. Nerevar's expression. The others look so cold, and his face... wow. It's a rough, loose work of art, but still so compelling. I can't take my eyes off of it.

In my headcanon, when she went nuts she tried to tempt my Nerevarine back to her side. He didn't fall for it.

This is amazing!! The expressions and the lighting are gripping! You captured the mood perfectly, too. You really got this Tribunal thing down!
Though I don't like to think the Tribunal murdered Nerevar for power hunger reasons,  this drawing makes it too believable to discount. 
 Nerevar's blue eyes....*thud*

My favourite version of the events at red mountain is the one where Almsivi turn against Nerevar because he refuses to use Kagrenac's tools even for the betterment of Resdayn - they murder him for the sake of their land rather than out of greed (though of course Azura still gets pissed and everything ends badly for the Tribunal)

Mmmm yes! That is an interesting one! Even though Azura is quite a darling, helpful mom kinda deal in Morrowind, she really can be a bit of a b:tch...:P 
Maybe it's because he's so ambiguous and seems like he'd be lying, but I'm always tempted to believe Vivec when he says that he didn't kill Nerevar. Er, though he also said he did at one point... 
Eh, I suppose that's the fun of it! Who knows! :D

I kind of like the fact that there are loads of conflicting accounts on what happened, it makes it so much more interesting and realistic :XD:

GHRGHH THIS IS SO COOL 8'U :heart:

Sotha Sil is my favourite character of all time, so I'm glad you put extra thought into what he looked like (personally, I don't think he agreed with what was going on, but that might just be me).

It wouldve been so great to talk to him in the game and get his perspective on it but of course almalexia gets to him first
but yeah I think the general consensus is that he felt pretty guilty about it all afterwards, maybe even more so than the other two

On the topic of Sotha Sil, I just heard some really awesome news about him.

 "But, yes, Sotha Sil is dead. You'll see him again in C0DA, though, and he's awesome." - MK

He did an Ask Me Anything on Reddit, here's the page! www.reddit.com/r/teslore/comme… I flapped my hands so much when I read through it, call me sad hdfsfd
