Appeared in: TESA: Redguard.

This is the information about Dram from the official Redguard website:

Name: Dram
Age: 252 (current incarnation 64, materialized CE612)
Race: Dunmer (Dark Elf)
Province of Birth: Morrowind (technically not an Imperial Province yet)
Occupation: Exiled Assassin of the Morag Tong, Imperial Emissary

Little is known about the Dark Elven Imperial Emissary, Dram, though his loyalty to Tiber Septim is unquestioned. Ironically, his ancestors were preeminent nightblades of the Four Score War, wherein the Morag Tong systematically destroyed the heirs of the Second Empire of Men. Why Dram now serves Cyrodiil, Morrowind's longtime enemy, is a mystery, as is the reason Tiber Septim suffers any Aldmeri to assist in his conquests in the first place.

Like all members of the Morag Tong, Dram worships Sithis, the God of Death; indeed, he is a thrice-born initiate who continues his faith even after his exile. Again, details of Dram's exile are unknown. There are whispers that House Indoril, the chosen Dark Elven faction of the legendary Tribunal, took slight at the assassin's affairs and had him secretly executed in CE800, an insult the Morag Tong has yet to forgive. Others say Dram has been a companion of Tiber Septim since the Emperor first took the Cyrodilic Crown. Still more, that he is the apprentice of Zurin Arctus.

Whatever the case, Dram is one of the Empire's most trusted servants, and perhaps its deadliest assassin. Currently, he is stationed at Stros M'kai, helping Provisional Governor Richton root out the last of the Redguard resistance fighters.

Dram was the assassin who shot Prince A'Tor during the Battle of Hunding Bay. The fall of the Prince let the Empire won the battle that day. He met his untimely end, when a rebellion by Restless League erupted in Stros M'Kai. On the top of Dwemeri Dirigible, he was killed by the magical Soul Sword of Prince A'Tor.
