"Ah yes, the sixth guest. I'm Neville. It's nice to make your acquaintance."
―Neville[src]

Neville quote

Neville is a Redguard and former Imperial Legion guard, and is associated with the Whodunit? quest. When the Hero first enters Summitmist Manor, he can be found arguing with the Nord Nels the Naughty about what they will do with the chest of GoldIcon that is supposedly hidden in the manor.

InteractionsEdit

Whodunit?Edit

A client has arranged a party in order to kill off some enemies with the Dark Brotherhood's help. The goal is to kill all the guests, and a bonus is given if nobody witnesses any murder. To make it easier to kill him, he can be convinced to take a nap.

If Neville's disposition is 30 or lower and the player has killed every guest in the house, he will go into his room, arm himself and turn hostile.

ConversationsEdit

Neville and NelsEdit

Neville: "So Nord, if you find the gold, what will you spend it on? Wait, let me guess, a sleazy whore and a nice new battleaxe. Am I right?"
Nels: "I'm going to open a tavern. Not that I'd welcome your patronage. No pigs allowed inside you see. You Legion types tend to stink up a place."
Neville: "A Tavern? Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Oh, I should have known! Leave it to a barbarian to spend an entire chest full of gold on beer and mead. How pathetic."
Nels: "You can call me a barbarian. It's true and I'm proud of the fact. But you call me pathetic again and I'm going to show you just how barbaric I am."
Neville: "With every word you speak you're just proving me right, Nord. Your kind has contributed nothing to our Empire and never will!"
Nels: "Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! "My kind," as you like to call us are plenty happy serving our own needs while your useless Empire crumbles down around you."
Neville: "Your words border on treason, Nord, and I will not tolerate them! You will respect the Empire! You will respect the memory of our dear Emperor!"
Nels: "Bah! Don't get your linens in a bunch! You have no authority in this house, or anywhere else! You're not even in the Legion anymore!"
Neville: "Nevertheless, I still serve the Empire in my heart and will not abide such talk! Walk away from me now, barbarian, or you'll regret your arrogance!"
Nels: "Pfft. I was done with you anyway. I can only talk to an Ex-Legion pig for so long before my ears start bleeding. Besides, I need a drink! Ha-ha-ha."

DialogueEdit

Show: Whodunit? (Neutral disposition)
In Summitmist Manor:

"Well, that chest of gold is supposed to be in here somewhere. Though why someone would invite us all here just to give it away is quite the mystery."

Dovesi Dran "Ah yes, Dovesi Dran. She's a Dark Elf, originally from Morrowind, or so I hear. I get the sense she doesn't like me very much."
Matilde Petit "Matilde seems like an upstanding citizen of the Empire. She respects the law and recognizes the Legion as Tamriel's greatest defense against evil."
Nels the Naughty "Nels is a Nord, and like all Nords he's a lawless barbarian with no respect for authority."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "Primo's blue blood, a noble through-and-through. He thinks he's better than most people, and in most cases he's right."

"I have a good idea where that chest might be. That gold is as good as mine."

After the first kill is made:

"Locked inside a house with five strangers. It sounded like a trap when I read the invitation. Looks like I was right!"

Dovesi Dran "Dovesi's upset by the murder but she'll be okay. I get the sense she's seen worse things in her life."
Matilde Petit "The poor woman's rather upset. Somebody of her bearing isn't accustomed to the horror of murder."
Nels the Naughty "When people start turning up dead, it's usually a good idea to keep your eyes open on any nearby Nords, if you understand what I'm saying."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "Well, when somebody gets murdered, everyone nearby could be considered a suspect. That includes young Primo."

"You'd be smart to stick with the rest of the group. It's just not safe to go wandering off alone with a killer on the loose."

After the second kill is made:

"I'd say that with two people dead, it's time for everyone to pull together. We need to watch out for each other, stay in a group."

Dovesi Dran "The girl's either upset that those people were killed or she's an excellent actress. She's still a suspect as far as I'm concerned."
Matilde Petit "Matilde is old, and frail. The shock of two people being murdered is surely too much for the poor woman."
Nels the Naughty "Two people are dead, and the only thing the Nord can do is dive into a bottle of beer. If you ask me it's all an act. Nels killed those people and pretty soon he'll come for the rest of it. Don't you worry, I gather some evidence, I'll take that scum down!"
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "Primo may be young, but he's no fool. He knows that the murder of two innocent people doesn't bode well for his own safety."

"Don't go far. It's too dangerous to go wandering around this house."

After the third kill is made:

"I've been doing some thinking. About you. It's kind of interesting that you were the last guest to arrive, don't you think? And now, three people lie dead, and you look as if you haven't a care in the world. It just looks a bit... suspicious. That's all I'm saying."

Dovesi Dran "So, three of us left -- you, Dovesi and myself. The list of suspects is certainly getting smaller. With Nels dead, my eye is on Dovesi."
Matilde Petit "Matilde is old, and frail. The shock of two people being murdered is surely too much for the poor woman."
Nels the Naughty "My gut instincts tell me Nels is the killer, but still I lack the proof I need to confront him. Maybe you can convince me I'm right."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "It's all starting to make sense now, Primo didn't need the money. He has more than any of us. Enough, in fact, to give away an entire chest of gold! That rich little bastard lured us all here by appealing to our sense of greed! Don't you see? He considered us all low class, and wants us exterminated! That high-bron little worm won't get away with this! He'll pay with his life! Come on, you watch my back. I'm going to take Primo down!"

"This is insane. We're being hunted down one by one. There must be a way out of this madhouse!"

After the fourth kill is made:

"I was wondering when you'd get to me. I have to give you some credit. You had me fooled. You made me trust you, which is not an easy thing. Oh, and the chest of gold was a nice touch. I knew it was all too good to be true, but I guess my greed got the best of me. But I'm afraid your little game is over now. I've killed more assassins in my day than I can count. So let's get this over with!"

Death related dialogue:

Dovesi Dran "Dovesi couldn't have been any more than fifteen years old. What threat could she have posed? Why was she murdered? Damn it, I mean to find out!"
Matilde Petit "How could this happen? How could I have let my guard down. That poor old woman is dead, and I should have protected her ...."
Nels the Naughty "Can't say I'm sorry to see there's one less Nord in the world. Still, I don't appreciate someone getting murdered right under my nose."
Primo Antonius "I'm still puting the pieces together. Was Primo murdered for his money? Was it something about the chest of gold? I'm not sure yet, but I'm close."

In Summitmist Manor:

"You're starting to crowd me, friend. Why don't you just back off, eh?"

Dovesi Dran "She's a Dark Elf. What, you blind as well as dumb?"
Matilde Petit "What's your interest in the old woman? You'd do well to keep your questions to yourself."
Nels the Naughty "Why don't you and that barbarian go climb back under your rock."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "He's young, rich and handsome. Basically the complete opposite of you."

After the first kill is made:

"Someone's been killed and as far as I'm concerned, you're one of the prime suspects. You watch your step."

Dovesi Dran ""I'm not sure I like your line of questioning, friend. Someone's been killed. Show a little respect."
Matilde Petit "She's upset, you idiot! Murder has that effect on people."
Nels the Naughty "Someone's been killed, and you know what my real problem is? Trying to decide who did it, you or that worthless Nord."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "I hope you're not suggesting that Primo is the murderer? I'm the trained investigator here. Just keep your mouth shut and stay out of my way."

After the second kill is made:

"Well, well, look who's here. It's the number one suspect in the cold-blooded murder of two innocent people. I'm watching you, scum."

Dovesi Dran "Why are you so concerned with my feelings toward a young Dark Elf girl? You wouldn't be so stupid as to try and turn me against her..."
Matilde Petit "Excuse me? You want to question me about Matilde? Two people have been murdered, you fool! Get your priorities straight!"
Nels the Naughty "Now this is interesting. Two people turn up dead, and you're more concerned with my feelings towards the Nord. If I didn't know any better, I'd say you were trying to turn me against him to cover your own tracks."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "I don't really know what you're trying to accomplish, but questioning me about Primo with two people lying dead just makes me suspect you even more."

After the third kill is made:

"Come to have a few words before you slit my throat? That's right, I know you did it. I can't prove it yet, but you mark my words: You're going down!"

Dovesi Dran "I find it odd that so many people have been killed, yet the two of you still live. Looks to me like you two are working together."
Matilde Petit "I suppose you're trying to turn me against Matilde, eh? Make me think she's the killer. I've got new for you friend -- I know it's you! I can't prove it yet, but just you wait. You try to hurt that poor old woman and I'll cut you in two!"
Nels the Naughty "I was positive he was the killer until you opened your mouth. Now I'm not so sure."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "I've come across your kind before. People get murdered, and you ask questions. It's a sure sign of a killer with a guilty conscience. Watch yourself."

After the fourth kill is made:

"Well, here we both are. Retird Imperial Legion officer and hired assassin. So, who do you work for? The Dark Brotherhood? The Morag Tong? No matter. I've faced your kind before. You're a coward. You use stealth and lies to destroy innocent lives. All of that ends now! Prepare to meet your doom!"

Death related dialogue:

Dovesi Dran "She was a child, and some sick murdering dog struck her down in cold blood. I swear, if I find out you did this I'll kill you with my bare hands."
Matilde Petit "Someone slaughtered that poor old woman like a lamb. I've got my eyes on you. Make one false move and I'll come down on you like a hammer."
Nels the Naughty "Nels is dead. You know what that means? You've just shot to the top of my suspect list. You make one wrong move and I'll break you!"
Primo Antonius "He was a young man and now he's dead, slaughtered like a lamb. I've got my eyes on you, stranger. Don't you forge that."

In Summitmist Manor:

"Ah yes, the sixth guest. I'm Neville. It's nice to make your acquaintance."

Dovesi Dran "Dovesi is a Dark Elf. They call themselves Dunmer. When I was young, I spent some time stationed at Fort Moonmoth on their homeland of Morrowind. I have a great respect for the Dunmer people. They are strong and noble, and generally understand the importance of law and discipline. Unfortunately, Dovesi doesn't seem to like me very much. But I don't blame her. The young ones tend to have problems with authority figures."
Matilde Petit "If I may be honest, I feel a bit sorry for the old woman. She comes from a noble family, I'm sure, but seems a lot less well off than she should be."
Nels the Naughty "You know what I think? I think that barbarian will do anything to get his hands on the chest of gold. His kind are greedy and vicious, all of them. Trust me, I know. I was stationed at Fort Frostmoth for a few years, on the isle of Solstheim. Those Nords are a bunch of animal-worshipping savages. They're all the same, full of mead and something to prove. We lost a lot of good men up there. A lot of good men."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "I'll confess that I have no idea why Primo is here. The kid's got more wealth than the rest of us combined. He sure doesn't need a chest of gold. Maybe he's incredibly greedy, but I don't think so. My guess is that Primo is so bored he simply has nothing better to do."

After the first kill is made:

"Locked inside a house with five strangers. It sounded like a trap when I read the invitation. Looks like I was right!"

Dovesi Dran "Right now my main concern is figuring out who the killer is. She may be young, but Dovesi is a suspect just like everyone else. I've seen enough in my time to know that anyone is capable of murder if they have the right motivation."
Matilde Petit "She's afraid, and for good reason. If the killer strikes again, they may very well pick an easy target, like Matilde. She needn't worry, though. I'm a trained soldier with over twenty years experience dealing with situations like this. On my honor, this killer will be caught and dealt with."
Nels the Naughty "Nords are raised to be cold-blooded killers. Don't take your eyes off Nels if you value your life. I'll bet anything he's our murderer."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "To be honest, my instinct tells me the kid isn't the killer. Sure he's a bit obnoxious, but that doesn't make him capable of murder."

After the second kill is made:

"We're being stalked like animals in the forest. I'm still not sure if the killer is one of the other guests, or is hiding somewhere in the house. One thing I do know is that the killer won't just stop with two. They never do. You and I, we need to watch each other's backs. I've got my old Legion armor and sword in a chest upstairs. It's time I geared up and showed this coward just who he's dealing with."

Dovesi Dran "You want my honest opinion? I think Nels is the killer. But I haven't yet ruled out that Dovesi may be working with him. (Or "You want to know the truth? I thought for sure that Nels was the killer. But with him dead, my bets are now on Dovesi" if Nels is killed)"
Matilde Petit "There's a killer in here and Matilde needs protection. Who better to defend her but me? I'm keeping my eye on the old woman, don't you worry."
Nels the Naughty "That mead-swilling barbarian killed those two people, I'm sure of it! I don't have the proof just yet, but I'm watching him. Don't you worry my friend, Nels won't get away with this. Not on my watch."
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "Primo may be young but he looks strong, and I'm sure he could handle himself in a fight. I think I'm going to enlist his help I'll talk to Primo, give him a bit of encouragement. If he and I are vigilant, we may prevent the killer from claiming another victim."

After the third kill is made:

"There you are. Listen, I've searched every inch of this house. It's sealed up tight. There's no way in or out, and there's nobody hiding anyplace. That means the killer has been inside with us all along. You and I aren't murderers, so that only leaves one person! We must prepare to defend ourselves!"

Dovesi Dran "You've helped me come to my sense, friend. There's no time for evidence gathering, no time to collect proof! Dovesi is the murderer! That little Dark Elf urchin killed three people in cold blood, and now she's going to try to kill us! We can't let that happen! Follow me, my friend, and watch my back. Dovesi must be brought to justice, and I'm the one to do it. Let's go!"
Matilde Petit "Three people have been killed, and the only ones left are you, me and a little old lady. One of us is a murderer, and my money's on the old lady. Don't let her looks deceive you, friend. I've seen black widows like her before! Her crimes must not go unpunished! Justice is at hand!"
Nels the Naughty
Neville "I'm a Redguard, though I've never actually been to Hammerfell. I was born here in Cyrodiil. My family has been in the Legion for three generations."
Primo Antonius "It's all starting to make sense now, Primo didn't need the money. He has more than any of us. Enough, in fact, to give away an entire chest of gold! That rich little bastard lured us all here by appealing to our sense of greed! Don't you see? He considered us all low class, and wants us exterminated! That high-bron little worm won't get away with this! He'll pay with his life! Come on, you watch my back. I'm going to take Primo down!"

If Nels the Naughty is still alive, the initial dialogue is different:
"There you are. Listen, I've searched every inch of this house. It's sealed up tight. There's no way in or out, and there's nobody hiding anyplace. That means the killer has been inside with us all along. You and I aren't murderers, so that only leaves one person! It's Nels the Naughty!"

We must act now! Kill Nels! "Yes! Yes! We must kill that foul Nord before he slits our throats! Aaaaaiiiieee!"
Flee, my friend! I'll confront Nels! "You... You would do that for me? You are truly a good friend. Yes. I... I fear this is beyond even my ability. I'm not as young as I used to be. I'll take refuge in my room until Nels has been dealt with. Thank you my friend! And good luck!"
[Say nothing.] "Yes, well, I know how you feel. What words can really do justice to the terrible situation at hand? But we must stick together if we are to survive! We're going to kill that cold-loving bastard before he turns on us! You cover me while I strike the killing blow!" (After this option, dialogue continues as normal)

After the fourth kill is made:

"Well, that's it, my friend. We're the last. And that damned assassin is still hiding out in this house somewhere. I guess there's only one thing left for me to do. I'm going to find an axe and do my best to chop that damn door down and get us out of here!" Or "Well, that's that. The killer is dead, and this nightmare is just about over. All we have to do now is find a way out of here."

Dovesi Dran "She murdered all those innocent people, and I delivered justice, just like any Legion soldier would. I... I only did what I thought was right..."

If approached again:

"Don't you worry, my friend. I'll get us a way out of here."

Death related dialogue

Dovesi Dran "I was in the Legion for a great many years, my friend. I saw a lot of horrible things, including the murders of children. It made no sense then, it makes no sense now. But don't you worry, I vow to bring Dovesi's killer to justice!"
Matilde Petit "Matilde's murder saddens me friend, but not for the reason you may think. Ten years ago, when I was in my prime, this never would have happened. But now I'm old, and my instincts have failed. I let that woman down."
Nels the Naughty "One less Nord in the world is something I'd normally cheer about, but the fact that he was murdered by a fellow guest does put a damper on things."
Primo Antonius "Primo was a young man, strong and full of life. Surely he would have been able to defend himself against an attacker."
