Fredas, 15th Last Seed, 4E 201

Darkwater Crossing: Arrested by Imperial Army.

Last Fredas I was arrested by Imperial Soldiers under suspicion of being a Stormcloak or Stormcloak sympathiser.  I was told this by Ralof, a fellow prisoner who escaped Helgen with me. I have no recollection of the event as it occurred before I awoke on the carriage.

Apparently the Stormcloaks were led into an ambush at Darkwater Crossing and anybody near them, such as me, was assumed to be a collaborator.

I had no armour, no weapons and was dressed in rags. More likely begging nearby than part of a rebel army!

Without a trial or right to legal presentation I was condemned and sentenced to death. On the following Sundas I was bundled into a carriage with Ralof, a Stormcloak soldier, Ulfric, the Stormcloak leader, and Lokir, a horse thief.  The carriage broke no speed records on its way to Helgen which was chosen as the place of our execution.
