"I may be sleeping in this tent by myself. Jena refuses to leave our house, battered as it is. If you heard that thing groan with every breeze, you'd be sleeping out here too."
―Brielus Colus[src]

Brielus Colus is an Imperial found in Cheydinhal. He is the husband of Jena Colus. It is revealed during "Congratulations!" that he has had an affair with Apphia Matia and a son came out of this affair. He later disregarded her.



Brielus' child is under the care of Apphia Matia, and she wants him to know it. The Vestige travels to Cheydinhal to inform him of the good news, and Brielus says the following lines:

Brielus, Apphia Matia is carrying your child. Congratulations: "Keep your voice down! Apphia was a mistake, a one-time thing. That's why I sent the fool girl away. If my wife finds out, she'll carve me a new smile! Take this and forget all about it."

And the quest concludes. However, dialogue may still continue.

So you sent a pregnant woman off on her own?: "Hey, it was the best thing for everyone! Well, it was the best thing for me, anyway. Jena would kill me if she found out. Apphia's a tough girl, she can handle herself. I gave her a knife. And a good horse."

Alone. In the wilderness: "Yes, yes, I'm not proud of what I did. But I told her to go to Castle Alessia; she has relatives there. She's probably there already, safe and sound. Now go away, before Jena comes around."


  • "Don't judge me. I had a moment of weakness. It won't happen a third time, I promise!"-after "Congratulations!" concludes.
