Kvenel the Tongue

Kvenel the Tongue is an ancient Nord hero who died long ago and was buried in Volunruud. He now lives in his burial chamber as a ghost. For historical information, see the lore article.

Kvenel dual-wields two unique items: Eduj, a sword, and Okin, an axe; both are enchanted with frost damage. He also has two backup weapons, which are leveled but not necessarily of maximum quality. The rest of his equipment is a variant of ancient Nord steel, which cannot be looted and is considerably stronger than the obtainable kind.

As a ghost, he has an additional 100% frost resistance on top of his Nord ability, and is also completely immune to poison. He is, however, vulnerable to paralysis.

Related QuestsEdit


  • His health is astronomical for his level, considering that a level 30 PC would have a maximum of 390. He also has an impressively high stamina, allowing for nearly unlimited use of power attacks.
  • Kvenel is immune to all anti-undead spells, despite being below their level limit.
  • Messages for him resisting shouts and other similar reactions use a generic title such as "Draugr Deathlord", depending on the leveled base enemy type, rather than his name.
  • He cannot be detected by any Detect Life or Detect Dead spells, but can be detected by Totem of The Hunt and the Aura Whisper shout.


  • The remains of Kvenel may have to be looted twice to obtain both Eduj and Okin.
