Freeing the Captives
To find Crafty Lerisa head towards Saintsport which is all the way south from Port Hunding. Just outside of Saintsport, an Altmer named Telonil will approach you. He’ll tell you that the Sea Drakes caused Crafty Lerisa to crash her ship. Now you need to find Lerisa’s monkey Howler, so follow the path into the city and keep going straight until you run into him. He’ll run into a building, so follow him and grab the skyshard just inside the entrance. He’ll lead you to Lerisa—now talk to her. She asks you to rescue her crew and then meet her by Captain Helane’s ship. Open the basket and grab the Sea Drake disguise. Now you can hack your way through this or you can put on the disguise and try and sneak past the enemies. If you choose to sneak then watch out for the enemies with torches: if they spot you, your cover will be blown. From the entrance to the building go north towards the big building. Go inside and up the stairs go towards the enemies sitting on the couch and turn right. Continue to the end and release Haerdon. Go back outside and head southwest towards the building with the red canopy. Now go inside and head upstairs and you’ll find Mekag gro-Bug; release him as well. Go back to where you released Haerdon and head east from the entrance to the building next door. Head upstairs and free Crenard Dortene. Once you’ve freed him, go back downstairs, leave the building, and head east. You’ll find Lerisa behind some rocks near the docks.

All Aboard
Talk to her and she’ll tell you to go onto her ship and rescue her first mate Deregor. Get onto the docks and head for the ship to the southeast. Once aboard go down the stairs to the left and head for the room straight ahead. Open the lockbox to the left inside the room to get the storeroom key. Leave the room and go down the hall to the left of the stairs. Open the door at the end and you’ll find Deregor, so free him. Leave the room and head back on deck, turn north and go through the door. Inside you will find Lerisa, who has just poisoned Helane. Talk to Lerisa and then either give Helane the antidote or just leave and let her die. When you leave talk to Lerisa again who’s at the north end of the docks off to the right, she will give you a reward and join Captain Kaleen’s crew.
