Does the shipwreck from Rune's (from the Thieves Guild) past exist?

  • Rune is a character you meet in the Thieves Guild. When you speak to him, he tells you about his past:

    As a child, Rune washed up on shore after a shipwreck near Solitude, and was found by a local fisherman. Rune could not recall his past, but the fisherman found a rock with strange writing on it. The fisherman named him Rune.

    Rune spends all his money trying to find out about his past. Near where he stands, there's a letter addressed to him:

    (Letter to Rune)

    I looked all over Solitude, but I can't find anything in any of the shipwrecks, and the Internet is turning up a blank. Does this shipwreck actually exist - is there any way we can help Rune?

    @desaiw I have also searched and searched in vain :(

    I found a shipwreck near Solitude called Orphan's Tear and I thought that has got to be it. However, there wasn't anything about him. I also found a book at another shipwreck. On the inside there was a written note. It was from a wet nurse that served this family and she said that she had been trying to find this boy who's parent's were dead and she couldn't locate him. I mean come on! That has to be about him!

    @user24771 Where's the source.

  • Nope. There's no way you can help Rune.

    There are a number of shipwrecks, and one of them might be the one in his past, but there is no explicit or implicit connection, and there is no loot or lore to indicate that this must be the case associated with any of them.

    @BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft I think it's going to be difficult to prove a negative, but discussion on the topic has shown no promising leads as well as some theories like the runes being part of an expansion or something removed from the game mid-production.

    I can't prove a negative buddy. I'm sorry, but you're asking the impossible.
