Drinar Varyon

Drinar Varyon is a Dark Elf smuggler working for Odral Helvi in Ald'ruhn. He deals in raw ebony and Dwemer artifacts under the guise of studying native Dunmer pottery.

He is wearing a common shirt with matching pants, shoes, ring and amulet. He is also carrying the key to his house and 13 gold. Aside from his natural resistance to fire and the sanctuary provided by his ancestors, he knows no spells.

  • Drinar claims to come from a well-known family, though the only other Varyon seen or mentioned in any game is an inconsequential bandit by the name of Dovrosi Varyon who lives in the cave of Shurinbaal. Members of the Thieves Guild in Ald'ruhn will tell you that the two are brother and sister: "Keep it quiet, but he's a smuggler. Works with his sister, Dovrosi Varyon on the coast.", and asking Drinar about her causes his disposition to drop twenty points.
  • After completing the Shipment of Ebony quest for House Hlaalu, and turning in the ebony to Segunivus Mantedius, Drinar will disappear from Morrowind.
  • If you kill Drinar before beginning the House Hlaalu quest Shipment of Ebony, Odral Helvi will only say that he needs to find a new fence, effectively making it impossible to complete the House Hlaalu questline. On PC, this can be fixed using console commands.
