When first speaking with him, he will ask if a dog was seen out on the roads and for assistance to catch him. If agreed, he will give some fresh meat to help lure the dog in.
The dog, who turns out to be Barbas can be found by following the road outside of town. Once the objective is complete, A Daedra's Best Friend can be started. After the quest, he gives from five to 25 gold.
Warning: Killing Lod will make A Daedra's Best Friend unstartable.
- "Steel's good, but loyalty's better. I'm loyal to Dengeir first, and the Empire second."
- "Only a hearty soul travels the roads these days."
- "Falkreath's warriors always return, one way or another."
- "Men and women join the war, they travel far on these roads to spill each other's blood."
- "Good steel is worth every septim. Remember that."
- His quotes on his loyalty to Dengeir are ironic, as Dengeir believes Lod is trying to contact General Tullius.
- If you haven't spoken to Lod, he can be a good source of blood for vampires. When you are in his house, it will not class as trespassing and he sleeps regularly.
- Sometimes he can be found dead in front of the stairs of his house while he should still be alive.
