I expected more out of meeting Gelebor *Dawnguard spoilers*

I already heard that in Dawnguard you'd meet an actual normal Snow Elf somewhere, I kind of expected it to be a big thing. But I just went through Darkfall cave, suddenly there's this dude standing there and he's like 'oh hai' as if you're a guy he just invited for a beer half an hour ago, and he wasn't disconnected from the world for hundreds (or thousands, don't remember exactly when the Falmer were driven underground) of years at all. then he mentions he's a Snow Elf and that you must do some stuff. I'm standing there like 'wait what, so you're an actual snow elf? Pretty much the last one? Dude I have so many questions! And why are you acting like this happens to you every day?'. I guess I just expected it to be a bigger deal considering no one has seen an actual snow elf in ****ing ages.

Thank you for saying this.

I tried to convey these feelings shortly after DG released. I was ceaselessly attacked by fanboys and lore nerds.

It is ridiculously awkward in that he acts normal, you're completely right.

For a man who has been tucked away for probably 1000's of years, he doesn't seem to give a hoot about the world outside, and seemingly doesn't wish to elaborate on his people very much. You'd think being alone with no companions but falmer would make someone a little kooky, but naw, he's just peachy.

The dragonborn is partly to blame too. Here we have a living piece of history, and all the DB cares about is the task at hand. Sooooo many questions could have been answered but NOPE!

He's like Yoda.

He doesn't really care about the outside world he has higher things on his mind, like trying to help his people.

Crappy excuse for bad writing, that is.
