Quest-Related DialogueEdit

During the related quest he will express his doubts on the presented facts: "I know I may be out of line by saying this, but I think the city guards may be wrong. It's hard to imagine Bradon was a vampire. I could have sworn I saw him outside in the daylight before. Unless he just got that disease very recently, I'd say they were mistaken. When I heard Raynil killed him, I didn't know what to think. But after your visit here, I'm beginning to wonder." He won't help your investigation however, if he has a disposition lower than 70: "I don't usually give out that kind of information. Especially to people I don't know." Otherwise, he will tell you about Raynil's stay: "Raynil is staying in the last room down the hall upstairs. Here's the key. I always liked Bradon and Erline. They were a nice couple. I hope you get to the bottom of this, cause I don't believe he was a vampire either."

Upon finding Gelebourne's Journal, you can ask about him: "Gelebourne? That's odd you should mention that name. Raynil told me that he was the last vampire he hunted. Yes... that's right. Somewhere in Skingrad I believe. He said he tracked Gelebourne down and killed him. That's apparently why the guards trust him so readily. They had gotten word from Skingrad's city watch about Raynil and his so-called accomplishment."

After the quest, he will express his joy over Raynil's death: "I'm glad that scum got what he deserved. Good riddance." If you failed the quest, however, he will be sad: "Sad that Raynil slipped away like that."


  • It appears Olav was originally intended to join his fellow citizens and cheer on Martin as he leaves for the battlefied during the Defense of Bruma quest, however his lines were commented out of the quest script and he was never given the requisite AI package.


  • Even after completion of his related quest, Olav will remain permanently essential.
