|Essential||Yes, before completing The Golden Claw|
Lucan runs the local general goods shop, the Riverwood Trader. He is first seen arguing with his sister Camilla over the recent robbery by Arvel the Swift.
Lucan's Golden Claw has been stolen by Arvel the Swift. Arvel stole the Golden Claw to access Bleak Falls Barrow. If Lucan dies, however, his sister Camilla sends the Dragonborn to retrieve it instead.
Lucan sells weapons, apparel, miscellaneous items and food, along with Spell Tomes.
- If the Dragonborn kills Lucan before marrying his sister, Camilla will not marry them.
- Lucan can be added to the marriage faction like other characters in "forced marriage."
- If Camilla has been murdered without being seen, Lucan will shut down his shop. If the Dragonborn attempts to engage him in dialogue, he will say he does not feel like talking.
- If Lucan Valerius is killed at no fault of the Dragonborn's, such as by vampires or dragons, the Dragonborn will receive a letter of condolence from Jarl Balgruuf and 90 gold as an inheritance. (This only happens after the golden claw has been returned.)
- If you save the game while inside the Riverwood Trader, and then restart your console. Lucan will have a complete restock of his gold. (Confirmed on PS3.)
- If you do not return the Golden Claw his shop will remain open at all times, instead of closing at night.
- Using the Investor perk to invest 500 in his shop will cause him to have 10,000 total gold; the game engine adds twenty instances of the perk. This remains throughout the game, always carrying around 11000 gold which replenishes every three days. This makes him the best option for getting rid of useless or valuable loot. Fixed by patch 1.9
- If spoken to outside his shop, while the "What do you have for sale?" option is not available, he can still be asked if he sells any spells. Doing so will cause him to offer the contents of his inventory for sale.
