He usually polishes weapons or trains with the guild's newest members in any effort to keep himself skilled. It is said that he is a capable warrior, but won't be able to get any better if he is held back by his mother.
Viranus' brother, Vitellus, was killed after a botched mission led by Oreyn. Since that time, his mother took a defensive stance in Viranus' upbringing in the guild. Afraid of losing her remaining son, he was never assigned any contracts: rather, he was assigned to aiding the training of other members.
After several weeks of this, Viranus began wondering if his mother's fear of losing him were stemmed from any sign of incompetence. Sensing this, Oreyn took every opportunity he could to assign Viranus obscure contracts to boost his self-confidence. At one point, he sends Viranus along with the Hero.
Viranus' days were not meant to last, however. Oreyn sent him on yet another contract with a group of others, to clear the Forsaken Mine just south of Leyawiin. After not hearing word of the group since, the Hero is sent to investigate in the Trolls of Forsaken Mine quest, where it is learned that all the members of the group, including Viranus, were killed.
At first glance it seems that Trolls killed them, however upon closer inspection a bloodstained journal can be found and, when read, will reveal that they were killed by Blackwood Company mercenaries. A few of said companies corpses will also be found. The news of the loss of Vilena Donton's remaining son invokes her to expel Oreyn from the Fighter's Guild, as well as demoting the Hero two ranks.
- A character named Eduard is mentioned several times in the bloodstained journal on Viranus' body. It is Eduard, apparently, who has kept Viranus company while he was in virtual isolation, and it is suggested that the two shared a romantic relationship. Eduard's body can be found in the Forsaken Mine some ways away from Viranus; he had died before Viranus.
- "The Master's Son" quest is briefly referenced, and the hero mentioned as a "new boot" whom Viranus believes he was supposed to watch over, rather than the opposite.
