FS#22138 - Talen-Jei's conflicting dialogue
This may not exactly be a bug, but I do find it... an odd situation, and I would want to shed some light on it in case you agree it could be changed.
Talen-Jei has a miscellaneous quest to gather for him some gems for his wedding band, after which he becomes your friend and may greet you as such, usually the first time you talk to him as you enter the cell.
However, he’s also involved in the Thieves’ Guild extortion quest, and will after this greet you with: “You have some nerve coming back here after what you did to Keerava.”, which he usually says the second time you greet him as you enter the cell, should this occur. More importantly, he will say goodbye with: “Just get out of here.” Which mostly results in him greeting you as a friend and then saying goodbye as if he doesn’t like you.
My suggestion would be to add a condition to those post-TG greetings to check if your relationship status is below 1. Would assume helping him with his wedding band would weigh more into his disposition towards you than extorting his fiancée (I find his dialogue regarding it to support this). Either way, having it both ways seems a bit strange to me.
