Arena Master Codus ap Dugal is the gamekeeper of the Kvatch Arena. Codus runs a tight ship and makes sure to apply the rules of the arena, refusing to fix any matches, as drawing in crowds are his main priority. He is also the brother of the Pirate Queen, Governor Fortunata ap Dugal, but does not speak to his sister and prefers to stay out of her affairs.
After obtaining the quest from the Kvatch Bounty Board, it is optional to speak with Codus before entering the Arena. Speaking with him will give you an understanding on how the arena works and what you will face. Once all the enemies have been defeated, speak to Codus to claim your reward.
After his sister's assassination, Codus will believe that she drunkenly fell off the balcony to her death.

I'm here to claim my reward. "And a well-earned reward it is! I haven't seen a beating that brutal since the Spear Sisters bested the Iron Lion in nothing but their sic] [Do not change this to small clothes. This misspelled word is how it appears in-game.]. Here's the victory purse. I suggest you live a little before your next dance with death!"[
- "You want to get in on a fight card, just hop in the pit. I don't give billing to walk-ins."
- "Don't jump onto the field unless you want to become part of the act."
- "Organizing fights is the easy part. It's cleaning up after them that's murder."
- "A gladiator's life is simple. Fight and live or fight and die. Sometimes I envy that."
- Codus is likely the ancestor of Torradan ap Dugal, as Fortunata has no known children before her death.
- Asking him about his sister after her death after A Special Request will reveal that the general belief in the Gold Coast is that she drunkenly fell off the Castle Anvil balcony.
