I have long believed it was a mistake to turn from the old gods. Perhaps Azura is with you after all. And perhaps not. I will tell you that I've spoken with Dagoth Ur. He promised me the same thing. That he will drive the foreigners from our lands. But I am not one to ignore opportunity, nor am I one to be troubled by rubbing two sides of a coin. If you are one of your word, I am your ally. I will tell Velanda Omani and Nevena Ules to support you as Hortator of House Hlaalu. VOICE INFORMATION
In general, Dunmer should sound wise, even in their youth. They live in a harsh land, and their lifespans are very long - they are a pragmatic people and venerate the wisdom of their elders from even from a young age. They should speak in a precise manner, taking the time to think through exactly what they mean to say as they say it.
For female Dunmer, the most important thing to consider is the culture they're coming from. Female members of House Hlaalu are the most heavily influenced by Imperial (and therefore Aldmeri) influence. They could very well speak with a lilt of the Imperial nobles, to a degree, though their voices won't be as commanding or crisp as either the Imperials or the Altmer. The old voice for the Altmer would have made a great Hlaalu Dunmer.
Female Redoran Dunmer do not need the British lilt. The Redoran should sound proud, and stalwart. A mature-voiced and not necessarily as crisp version of the more American imperials could work - think 'superhero'.
Telvanni Dunmer females would seem suspicious and cold.
Ashlander females need to crank up the elderly wisdom vibe to 11. Depending on how good they are with Cyrodilic (English) their accent may even sound Dothraki or Mongolian.
For males, the rasp is the most important thing. If you can throat sing, and apply this rasp on top of throat singing, that is the ideal Dunmer voice. That's how Jeff Baker does the voice. After you nail the sound you can think on the cultural influences.
