Once in Cyrodiil, she and Shalik joined a caravan run by the slippery Iago as guards. Along the way, Shalik decided to give Kihtar her freedom. Impressed by Kihtar's performance on the journey, Iago hired her on for a longer trip to Hammerfell - a trip fraught with difficulties so far.
Kihtar is a somewhat naive and has a subservient attitude that Iago is making efforts to break. She has self-confidence problems and has a tendency to mess things up. However, despite this, she still refuses to give up and has soldiered on despite her failures.
