Peragorn is a Wood Elf farmer who does contract work for Snow-Shod Farm, helping pick vegetables and tending to the cows. His dialogue is designed to be a satire of video game dialogue in general, as the PC is typically the inquisitive one despite leading the far more interesting life. As such Peragorn’s introductory lines are mostly questions as opposed to answers. However, eventually the dialogue moves to a more traditional path, with Peragorn elaborating on his own troubles.
It should be noted that other NPCs added in subsequent versions of the mod, such as Ureni and Isobel, would use this convention as well, in order to better know the Dragonborn and allow the player to role play their own back story, as opposed to simply flipping a concept as was the case with Peragorn.
