Neville in his Legion armor

Neville is a Redguard knight and a retired Imperial Legion Soldier. Together with Dovesi Dran, Matilde Petit, Nels the Naughty and Primo Antonius, he's involved in a private treasure hunt which takes place in Summitmist Manor. With a meager retirement fund, he opted to enter the competition to win the prize – a chest of gold. In truth, there is no such chest, he is in fact trapped with the others as part of a Dark Brotherhood contract, which will be given to you as the quest Whodunit?.

The chest in his room holds a full set of Imperial Legion armor along with a leveled mace; Neville holds the key to it. Neville wears a burgundy linen shirt, burgundy linens, and a pair of oiled linen shoes and carries a large amount of gold. Neville knows a leveled set of crusader spells.

He's on good terms with Matilde Petit. In fact, she seems to hold a romantic interest in him. While he respects Dovesi Dran and her people the Dunmer, she however hates the Imperial Legion and therefore distrusts Neville. Though the most rocky relationship is between him and Nels, as they both can't stand one another due to Neville having prejudices towards Nords, and Nels similarly having had a traumatic experience with the Legion. Finally, there is no initial bias between Neville and Primo Antonius.

Because of his past in the Legion, he'll remain the most cool-headed throughout the quest, instead using his experience to act as an investigator. Though he too can be convinced to take action should he make it to the end.

During Whodunit?, you'll be tasked to eliminate the whole party at Summitmist Manor, which includes Neville. Ocheeva will reveal, "Each guest, at some point in the past, wronged their mysterious host. Now he's hired us to exact his revenge.", though it is unknown what Neville did to deserve this contract on him.

When you enter the manor, Matilde will approach you and introduce herself and the other guests: "The rest of us have already traded introductions. I'm Matilde Petit. The others are Nels the Naughty, Neville, Dovesi Dran and Primo Antonius." You will hear a conversation between Nels and Neville:

Neville has a rivalry with Nels

Neville: "So, Nord, if you find the gold, what will you spend it on? Wait, let me guess -- a sleazy whore and a nice new battleaxe. Am I right?"
Nels: "I'm going to open a tavern. Not that I'd welcome your patronage. No pigs allowed inside, you see. You Legion types tend to stink up a place."
Neville: "A tavern! Ha ha ha ha ha! Oh, I should have known! Leave it to a barbarian to spend an entire chest full of gold on beer and mead. How pathetic."
Nels: "You can call me a barbarian. It's true and I'm proud of the fact. But you call me pathetic again and I'm going to show you just how barbaric I am."
Neville: "With every word you speak you're just proving me right, Nord. Your kind has contributed nothing to our Empire, and never will!"
Nels: "Ha ha ha ha ha! "My kind," as you like to call us, are plenty happy serving our own needs while your useless Empire crumbles down around you!"
Neville: "Your words border on treason, Nord, and I will not tolerate them! You will respect the Empire! You will respect the memory of our dear Emperor!"
Nels: "Bah! Don't get your linens in a bunch. You have no authority in this house, or anywhere else. You're not even in the Legion anymore!"
Neville: "Nevertheless, I still serve the Empire in my heart and will not abide such talk! Walk away from me now, barbarian, or you'll regret your arrogance."
Nels: "Pfft. I was done with you anyway. I can only talk to an ex-Legion pig for so long before my ears start bleeding. Besides, I need a drink. Ha ha ha!"

When you first greet him, he'll introduce himself: "Ah yes, the sixth guest. I'm Neville. It's nice to make your acquaintance." He'll provide some background should you ask him about himself: "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."

He and the other guests will provide their opinions on each other, all of which depend their disposition towards you:

Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "She's a Dark Elf. What, you blind as well as dumb?" "Ah yes, Dovesi Dran. She's a Dark Elf, originally from Morrowind, or so I hear. I get the sense she doesn't like me very much." "Dovesi is a Dark Elf. They call themselves Dunmer. When I was young, I spent some time stationed at Fort Moonmoth on their homeland of Morrowind. I have a great respect for the Dunmer people. They are strong and noble, and generally understand the importance of law and discipline. Unfortunately, Dovesi doesn't seem to like me very much. But I don't blame her. The young ones tend to have problems with authority figures."
Matilde Petit "What's your interest in the old woman? You'd do well to keep your questions to yourself." "Matilde seems like an upstanding citizen of the Empire. She respects the law and recognizes the Legion as Tamriel's greatest defense against evil." "If I may be honest, I feel a bit sorry for the old woman. She comes from a noble family, I'm sure, but seems a lot less well off than she should be."
Nels the Naughty "Why don't you and that barbarian climb back under your rock." "Nels is a Nord, and like all Nords he's a lawless barbarian with no respect for authority." "Know what I think? I think that barbarian will do anything to get his hands on the chest of gold. His kind are greedy and vicious, all of them. Trust me, I know. I was stationed at Fort Frostmoth for a few years, on the isle of Solstheim. Those Nords are a bunch of animal-worshipping savages. They're all the same, full of mead and something to prove. We lost a lot of good men up there. A lot of good men."
Primo Antonius "He's young, rich and handsome. Basically the complete opposite of you." (male) "Primo's a blue blood, a noble through-and-through. He thinks he's better than most people, and in most cases he's right." "I'll confess that I have no idea why Primo is here. The kid's got more wealth than the rest of us combined. He sure doesn't need a chest of gold. Maybe he's incredibly greedy, but I don't think so. My guess is that Primo is so bored he simply has nothing better to do."
"He's young, rich and handsome. That's way out of your league, tramp." (female)
Other guests
Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "I really don't know anything about him, so you'd be better off asking someone else." "He's a very serious man, but I guess that's normal for a retired soldier." "I know he's a retired soldier. But not just a soldier -- he was an officer in the Imperial Legion. I hate the Legion and everything it stands for. When those soldiers came to Morrowind, they persecuted my people and stole our lands. Neville may not be in the Legion anymore, but who knows what atrocities he committed."
Matilde Petit "What do you care? He seems like a very respectable person. That's more than I can say for you." "From what I gathered, he's a retired soldier. He's been all across the Empire fighting in various campaigns. Goodness, he's handsome...." "Well, if I can be perfectly honest with you, I find Neville quite attractive. Redguards are so... exotic. Don't you think?"
Nels the Naughty "He's an Imperial Legion bulldog. Scum, if you ask me. Kind of like you." "Once an Imperial Legion bulldog, always an Imperial Legion bulldog. I've seen his kind before. He cares about laws and regulations... not people." "I will confide something in you, my friend. I despise Neville and all his Imperial Legion ilk! They are useless, uncaring tools of corruption! Three years ago, my village in Skyrim was attacked by bandits. We went to the nearby Imperial Legion outpost, but they refused to help us! My dear, sweet daughter Olga was killed that day. She was murdered, and the Legion would do nothing to help her. Neville and his kind are scum."
Primo Antonius "Why don't you go ask him yourself? Or maybe you're afraid? You should be." "He reminds me of the guards under my father's employ. Strict, no-nonsense, and ready to fight at a moment's notice." "I know he's a retired Imperial Legion officer. Apparently, he's been in campaigns all across the Empire, from Skyrim to Morrowind. I also get the sense that he's very eager to find the gold. I can't imagine his life of servitude to the Empire left him with much to retire on."

Should you speak to him again, he will greet you depending on his disposition. A low one gets you, "You're starting to crowd me, friend. Why don't you just back off, eh?" and a normal one, "Well, that chest of gold is supposed to be in here somewhere. Though why someone would invite us all here just to give it away is quite the mystery." However, with a high disposition, he'll reveal his intentions and suspicions regarding the event: "You want my honest opinion? This whole setup -- the party, the chest of gold -- it doesn't make any sense. Why would someone invite us here? Why would they just give away an entire chest of gold? If I didn't know better, I'd say this whole thing is a trap. So, why am I here? Greed, my friend. I need the gold. I served the Legion proudly for twenty-three years, but pride doesn't put food on my table."

One Guest EliminatedEdit

Once a guest has been eliminated, the atmosphere obviously changes, and so do the opinions of each guest. When you approach Neville, he will say, "I know someone's been murdered and we're all on edge. Just try to remain calm. I'll get to the bottom of this." He will greet you according to his disposition. A low one will grant you,"Someone's been killed, and as far as I'm concerned, you're one of the prime suspects. You watch your step.", a normal one, "Locked inside a house with five strangers. It sounded like a trap when I read the invitation. Looks like I was right!", and a high one, "A guest has been murdered. So it begins. You mark my words. This entire party is a trap. Someone wants us all dead, and now they have their chance." When you leave the conversation, Neville may remark, "I knew this little party was too good to be true..."

Assuming the person you wish to discuss still lives, Neville will have the following to say:

Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "I'm not sure I like your line of questioning, friend. Someone's been killed. Show a little respect." "Dovesi's upset by the murder but she'll be okay. I get the sense she's seen worse things in her life." "Right now my main concern is figuring out who the killer is. She may be young, but Dovesi is a suspect just like everyone else. I've seen enough in my time to know that anyone is capable of murder if they have the right motivation."
Matilde Petit "She's upset, you idiot! Murder has that effect on people! "The poor woman's rather upset. Someone of her bearing isn't accustomed to the horror of murder." "She's afraid, and for good reason. If the killer strikes again, they may very well pick an easy target, like Matilde. She needn't worry, though. I'm a trained soldier with over twenty years experience dealing with situations like this. On my honor, this killer will be caught and dealt with!"
Nels the Naughty "Someone's been killed, and you know what my real problem is? Trying to decide who did it, you or that worthless Nord." "When people start turning up dead, it's usually a good idea to keep your eyes on any nearby Nords, if you understand what I'm saying." "Nords are raised to be cold-blooded killers. Don't take your eyes off Nels if you value your life. I'll bet anything he's our murderer."
Primo Antonius "I hope you're not suggesting that Primo is the murderer? I'm the trained investigator here. Just keep your mouth shut and stay out of my way." "Well, when somebody gets murdered, everyone nearby could be considered a suspect. That includes young Primo." "To be honest, my instincts tell me the kid isn't the killer. Sure he's a bit obnoxious, but that doesn't make him capable of murder."

The others will also discuss Neville when you ask them:

Other guests
Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "I'm sorry, but someone has been murdered! I really don't want to talk about Neville right now." "Does being a soldier make him a good person? Does it make him above murder? I hardly think so." "I heard the others talking. Neville was a soldier for twenty years. He's used to killing, if you know what I'm saying."
Matilde Petit "What, you don't think Neville is the killer, do you? That's absurd! He's a gentleman and a retired soldier, not a murderer!" "Neville used to be a soldier. I'm sticking close to him. He makes me feel safe." "Neville has a strong sense of justice, I can tell. If we find out who the killer is, he'll take care of things, if you know what I mean."
Nels the Naughty "Right now I'm more concerned with the person who's been left for dead in this very house, not with that Legion dog." "He's like everyone else in the Imperial Legion. Someone needs help, someone is getting killed, and they're nowhere to be found. Worthless." "I really have to wonder where Neville was when someone was getting slaughtered just a few rooms away. Maybe he was busy looking for the chest of gold. Or maybe he was right next to the victim, with his hand on the hilt of a dagger. Think about it."
Primo Antonius "What are you getting at? Are you suggesting that Neville is the killer? Take your suspicions someplace else, you low-born worm." "He seems on edge, doesn't he? I guess you can take the man out of the Legion, but you can never take the Legion out of the man." "Neville seems different now that someone has been killed. More alert, more aware. Something tells me he's not going to take all of this lying down. He's a trained soldier, after all. I bet if anyone can figure out what's going on here, it will be him."

Two Guests EliminatedEdit

Neville retrieves his old Legion armor

With tension now rising, it becomes more apparent that the supposed gold is just a hoax, and everyone suspects each other more and more. Neville will now greet you with, "Well, well, look who's here. It's the number one suspect in the cold-blooded murder of two innocent people. I'm watching you, scum." if he dislikes you, or with, "I'd say that with two people dead, it's time for everyone to pull together. We need to watch out for each other, stay in a group." if he's indifferent. If you greet him with a high disposition at this point, he'll say the following before he gets his gear: "We're being stalked, like animals in the forest. I'm still not sure if the killer is one of the other guests, or is hiding somewhere in the house. One thing I do know is that the killer won't just stop with two. They never do. You and I, we need to watch each other's backs. I've got my old Legion armor and sword in a chest upstairs. It's time I geared up and showed this coward just who he's dealing with!", after this point he will then greet you with, "Don't worry, my friend. I'm going to show this slinking cutthroat how the Imperial Legion takes care of things." When you leave the conversation, he may say, "Don't get any ideas about wandering off alone. I'm keeping my eye on everyone, including you."

Neville's suspicions haven't changed, with Nels still being the main suspect provided he yet lives.

Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "Why are you so concerned with my feelings toward a young Dark Elf girl? You wouldn't be so stupid as to try and turn me against her..." "The girl's either upset that those people were killed or she's an excellent actress. She's still a suspect as far as I'm concerned." "You want my honest opinion? I think Nels is the killer. But I haven't yet ruled out that Dovesi may be working with him." (Nels is alive)
"You want to know the truth? I thought for sure Nels was the killer. But with him dead, my bets are now on Dovesi." (bugged)
Matilde Petit "Excuse me? You want to question me about Matilde? Two people have been murdered, you fool! Get your priorities straight!" "Matilde is old, and frail. The shock of two people being murdered is surely too much for the poor woman." "There's a killer in here and Matilde needs protection. Who better to defend her but me? I'm keeping my eye on the old woman, don't you worry."
Nels the Naughty "Now this is interesting. Two people turn up dead, and you're more concerned with my feelings toward the Nord. If I didn't know better, I'd say you were trying to turn me against him to cover your own tracks." "Two people are dead, and the only thing the Nord can do is dive into a bottle of beer. If you ask me it's all an act. Nels killed those people and pretty soon he'll come for the rest of it. Don't you worry, when I gather more evidence, I'll take that scum down!" "That mead-swilling barbarian killed those two people, I'm sure of it! I don't have the proof just yet, but I'm watching him. Don't you worry, my friend. Nels won't get away with this. Not on my watch."
Primo Antonius "I don't really know what you're trying to accomplish, but questioning me about Primo with two people lying dead just makes me suspect you even more." "Primo may be young, but he's no fool. He knows that the murder of two innocent people doesn't bode well for his own safety." "Primo may be young, but he looks strong, and I'm sure he could handle himself in a fight. I think I'm going to enlist his help. I'll talk to Primo, give him a bit of encouragement. If he and I are vigilant, we may prevent the killer from claiming another victim."

Interestingly, at this point Matilde would start to doubt Neville's innocence due to her escalating fear. In fact, only Primo would be correct in his observations regarding Neville's tenacity to catch the killer, while Dovesi and Nels both believe Neville to be dangerous.

Other guests
Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "Two people are dead. Could he really have done it? I... I just don't know..." "Two people have been murdered, and neither of them was Neville. Watch your back around him." "Neville is a trained killer! That fascist pig killed those people, I just know it!"
Matilde Petit "You're trying to turn me against him, aren't you? Just leave me alone!" "I just don't know what to think anymore, or who to trust. Neville seems like such a decent man, but how can I know for sure?" "Do... do you think he could have done it? I mean, he is a retired soldier. He's killed before. Oh, dear, this can't be happening!"
Nels the Naughty "By Ysmir's dragon blood, what's wrong with you? Two people are dead! It's hardly the time to chat about that Legion lackey!" "Two of us killed, and where was the stalwart Legionnaire? That's what I'd like to know. He spent his life protecting the citizens of Tamriel? Ha!" "With two of us now dead, it seems like the others are looking to Neville for protection. The fools! He'll kill them like he did the others! That's right, I think Neville is the murderer. I can't prove it yet, but he'll slip up, just you wait. Whatever you do, don't turn your back on him."
Primo Antonius "Look, I don't know what kind of information you're after, but I won't help you. Just go away." "It seems that with each murder, Neville becomes that much more aware. If I didn't know better, I'd say he's planning on catching the killer himself." "Well, Neville is a trained soldier. He was in the Imperial Legion for twenty years, or so I've heard. He certainly knows how to kill. Still, I don't think he's the murderer. No, quite the contrary. I think he takes the murders personally, feels he should have protected the victims."

Three Guests EliminatedEdit

With only two targets left, there are now only two possible suspects: the other guest, or you. Neville will only trust your innocence if he has a high disposition. With a low disposition, Neville will greet you with, "Come to have a few words before you slit my throat? That's right, I know you did it. I can't prove it yet, but you mark my words: You're going down!", or with a neutral disposition: "I've been doing some thinking. About you. It's kind of interesting that you were the last guest to arrive, don't you think? And now, three people lie dead, and you look as if you haven't a care in the world. It just looks a bit... suspicious. That's all I'm saying." With a high disposition, and Nels being dead, he'll greet you with, "There you are. Listen, I've searched every inch of this house. It's sealed up tight. There's no way in or out, and there's nobody hiding anyplace. That means the killer has been inside with us all along. You and I aren't murderers, so that leaves one person! We must prepare to defend ourselves!"

If Nels is the other guest still breathing, and Neville has a high disposition towards you, you're given an opportunity to affect Neville's actions. He will claim Nels is the killer: "There you are. Listen, I've searched every inch of this house. It's sealed up tight. There's no way in or out, and there's nobody hiding anyplace. That means the killer has been inside with us all along. You and I aren't murderers, so that leaves one person! It's Nels the Naughty!" You then have three options to reply:

We must act now! Kill Nels!
"Yes! Yes! We must kill that foul Nord before he slits our throats! Aaaaaiiiieee!" (Neville attacks Nels)
Flee, my friend! I'll confront Nels!
"You... You would do that for me? You are truly a good friend. Yes, I... I fear this is beyond even my ability. I'm not as young as I used to be. I'll take refuge in my room until Nels has been dealt with. Thank you my friend! And good luck!" (Neville proceeds to hide)
[Say nothing.]
"Yes, well, I know how you feel. What words can really do justice to the terrible situation at hand? But we must stick together if we are to survive!" (nothing happens)

Otherwise, Neville will attack the other guest if you mention them with a high disposition, except for Primo, as the dialogue with script has improper conditions (see bugs).

Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "I find it odd that so many people have been killed, yet the two of you still live. Looks to me like you two are working together." "So, three of us left -- you, Dovesi and myself. The list of suspects is certainly getting smaller. With Nels dead, my eye is on Dovesi." "You've helped me come to my senses, friend. There's no time for evidence gathering, no time to collect proof! Dovesi is the murderer! That little Dark Elf urchin killed three people in cold blood, and now she's going to try to kill us! We can't let that happen! Follow me, my friend, and watch my back. Dovesi must be brought to justice, and I'm the one to do it! Let's go!"
Matilde Petit "I suppose you're trying to turn me against Matilde, eh? Make me think she's the killer. I've got news for you friend -- I know it's you! I can't prove it yet, but just you wait. You try to hurt that poor old woman and I'll cut you in two!" "Three people have been killed, and now Matilde thinks she's next. I guess only the killer knows for sure. Isn't that right?" "Three people have been killed, and the only ones left are you, me and a little old lady. One of us is a murderer, and my money's on the old lady. Don't let her looks deceive you, friend. I've seen black widows like her before! Her crimes must not go unpunished! Justice is at hand!"
Nels the Naughty "I was positive he was the killer until you opened your mouth. Now I'm not so sure." "My gut instincts tell me Nels is the killer, but still I lack the proof I need to confront him. Maybe you can convince me I'm right." "My friend, in talking to you, it's become clear what must be done. I have no doubts in my mind that Nels is the killer. We must take him down! We've got to kill that cold-loving bastard before he turns on us! You cover me while I strike the killing blow!"
Primo Antonius "I've come across your kind before. People get murdered, and you ask questions. It's a sure sign of a killer with a guilty conscience. Watch yourself." "All right, I'll be honest. I'm not quite sure what to think about Primo anymore. My list of suspects is getting pretty damned small as it is." "It's all starting to make sense now. Primo didn't need the money. He has more than any of us. Enough, in fact, to give away an entire chest of gold! That rich little bastard lured us all here by appealing to our greed! Don't you see? He considers us all low class, and wants us exterminated! That high-born little worm won't get away with this! He'll pay with his life! Come on, you watch my back. I'm going to take Primo down!" *

The other guest in turn can be made to attack Neville instead, except for Matilde.

Other guests
Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "He's the killer, you idiot! Can't you see? He murdered all of those people!" "He's the killer! Don't you see? We have to protect ourselves! We'll be next!" "He killed them! All of those people! We... we have to get him before he gets us! We have to kill that murdering swine!"
Matilde Petit "You want me to mistrust him, don't you! You want to turn me against him! Maybe... maybe you're the murderer!" "I'm no murderer, so that means it's either you or Neville. Just stay away from me! I don't trust either one of you!" "I know you're no killer. That means it's Neville! Oh, I'm so frightened! Please protect me from him!"
Nels the Naughty "Three guests have been slaughtered, and you want to ask me about that Legion dog? I don't know who I hate more, you or him!" "Guests are dropping like flies around here, but not Neville, he's still in one piece. That tells me he's either very lucky, or a cold-blooded killer." "That sniveling Legion dog must die! Do you understand me? He's the murderer! He killed all those people! He must pay for what he's done!"
Primo Antonius "What are you saying? That Neville is the killer? Why should I trust a low-born dog like you? Get away from me!" "I... I thought he was hunting the killer. Now I don't know what to think! I don't trust him, or you! Stay away from me!" "I was wrong! Don't you see? I thought Neville was trying to catch the killer! But he IS the killer! We need to find a way out of here!"


Provided he's not the only target left, Neville will discuss the guest you've already murdered as well, as will the other guests discuss Neville should you have killed him.

Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "She was a child, and some sick murdering dog struck her down in cold blood. I swear, if I find out you did this I'll kill you with my bare hands." "Dovesi couldn't have been any more than fifteen years old. What threat could she have posed? Why was she murdered? Damn it, I mean to find out!" "I was in the Legion for a great many years, my friend. I saw a lot of horrible things, including the murders of children. It made no sense then, it makes no sense now. But don't you worry. I vow to bring Dovesi's killer to justice!"
Matilde Petit "Someone slaughtered that poor old woman like a lamb. I've got my eyes on you. Make one false move and I'll come down on you like a hammer." "How could this happen? How could I have let my guard down. That poor old woman is dead, and I should have protected her...." "Matilde's murder saddens me friend, but not for the reason you may think. Ten years ago, when I was in my prime, this never would have happened. But now I'm old, and my instincts have failed. I let that woman down."
Nels the Naughty "The Nord has been murdered. Maybe I'll get lucky and the same thing will happen to you. Unless, of course, you're the one who did it...." (only Nels dead) "Can't say I'm sorry to see there's one less Nord in the world. Still, I don't appreciate someone getting murdered right under my nose." "One less Nord in the world is something I'd normally cheer about, but the fact that he was murdered by a fellow guest does put a damper on things."
"Nels is dead. You know what that means? You've just shot to the top of my suspect list. You make one wrong move and I'll break you!" (more dead)
Primo Antonius "He was a young man and now he's dead, slaughtered like a lamb. I've got my eyes on you, stranger. Don't you forget that." "I'm still putting the pieces together. Was Primo murdered for his money? Was it something about the chest of gold? I'm not sure yet, but I'm close." "Primo was a young man, strong and full of life. Surely he would have been able to defend himself against an attacker."
Other guests
Disposition: ≤30 >30 ≥70
Dovesi Dran "No, I didn't like the man. But why should you care? Please, just go away." "I... I don't understand. Who would kill him? And why? Is this about the gold?" "All right, so I didn't like Neville. But the man was a trained soldier. He knew how to handle himself. Who could possibly have killed him?"
Matilde Petit "He's dead, and one of you killed him! I hate you all!" "I... I can't believe he's dead. Such a strong, handsome man..." "Why would one of us kill Neville? What if they try to get the rest of us? You'll protect me, won't you?"
Nels the Naughty "The man is dead, you horse's ass! There's nothing more to tell!" "I may not have liked the man, but I'm particularly troubled by his death. Neville was a capable fighter. Who could have killed him, and so quickly?" "You want to know how I really feel about Neville's death? I'm afraid. I may hate the Imperial Legion, but its members are trained warriors. Neville was probably the most capable fighter among us, yet he was cut down silently, just a few rooms away. I fear one of us is not who they appear. This isn't the work of some greedy house guest. There's an assassin among us, you mark my words. We must watch ourselves at every step."
Primo Antonius "He's dead, you peasant! There's nothing more to tell!" "Neville was strong, a soldier. If he was murdered, this does not bode well for the rest of us!" "My friend, I am truly worried! Neville was a strong and capable man, a soldier of twenty years! The rest of us will be easy prey for the killer now!"

If Neville is the only target left, and you've convinced him to attack the previous target by mentioning them with a high disposition, he'll now greet you with, "Well, that's that. The killer is dead, and this nightmare is just about over. All we have to do now is find a way out of here." In this case, if he killed Dovesi Dran, you can discuss her, to which he'll show his unease regarding the killing of a child: "She murdered all those innocent people, and I delivered justice, just like any Legion soldier would. I... I only did what I thought was right..."

Neville may try to break the door down

Otherwise, his disposition towards you will affect what happens next. Both a low disposition and normal one will be proof enough for him to know that you are in fact the killer, and he will attack you after the appropriate greeting: "Well, here we both are. Retired Imperial Legion officer and hired assassin. So, who do you work for? The Dark Brotherhood? The Morag Tong? No matter. I've faced your kind before. You're a coward. You use stealth and lies to destroy innocent lives. All of that ends now! Prepare to meet your doom!", or "I was wondering when you'd get to me. I have to give you some credit. You had me fooled. You made me trust you, which is not an easy thing. Oh, and the chest of gold was a nice touch. I knew it was all too good to be true, but I guess my greed got the best of me. But I'm afraid your little game is over now. I've killed more assassins in my day than I can count. So let's get this over with!", respectively. A high disposition will still have him believe your innocence, despite his conviction there was no way for an assassin outside of the known group of people, and he'll go grab an axe and proceed trying to break down the front door in vain: "Well, that's it, my friend. We're the last. And that damned assassin is still hiding out in this house somewhere. I guess there's only one thing left for me to do. I'm going to find an axe and do my best to chop that damn door down and get us out of here!"


  • Due to his high aggression, it's likely for him to attack you on sight when entering the Manor if your infamy is high enough; this can be used as an advantage however: since he is the attacker, the other guests will help you kill him and you will not gain a bounty for being attacked first.
  • Neville won't discuss rumors with you, nor will the other guests.


  • There's a line that Neville is supposed to say about Dovesi Dran when Nels is dead, but one of the conditions requires Neville himself to be dead instead of Nels, so it can obviously never be heard: "I would have sworn with my life that Nels was the killer, but now he's dead as well! Dovesi is now my top suspect."
  • When Neville and Primo Antonius are the only guests left alive, Neville's dialogue regarding Primo has improper tags, as the high disposition line and script causing him to attack has a condition of only ≥30 and lacks the conversation end forcing, while the normal disposition has >30, potentially causing the wrong line. ?
  • Neville claims that he'll go get his armor and sword but his chest contains a mace instead.
