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.
