Vael

Classification
Species: Human
Profession: Assassin Assassin-icon.png
Level(s): 20

General

Vael appears seemingly out of nowhere in Grothmar Wardowns. He appears to know a bit about the character, but reveals very little about himself, other than that his favourite colour is Sage Green.

Appearance

Vael appears to be wearing the armour of a warrior, but wields daggers. He is an assassin.

Location


BUG!? Note: Some players (1) have experienced Vael spawn only once, near the southernmost bridge in Grothmar Wardowns. At this encounter he has not been giving any quests. After encountering Vael this single time, he doesn't seem to spawn again, making his quests unavailable. If this is a bug or not is not yet known. ((If anyone else has experienced the same, please confirm this by erasing this last sentence and the "(1)" above in this paragraph))


He will also randomly spawn with you upon leaving an outpost. You must to talk to him outside of Longeye's Ledge in order for this to occur.

Notes

Vael claims that Vael isn't his real name, Captain Langmar confirms his name as "Nathanael", which he in turn denies as an alias to the Ebon Vanguard. His knowledge of the player's deeds, along with his visual similarity, has led some players to suspect that he is actually Captain Osric from the Prophecies Campaign. He also claims to have been there when Rurik died, and had to announce his death to King Adelbern, and Osric has been known to be a close friend of Rurik.

Vael also claims to be a veteran of the Tengu Wars in Cantha, placing him on two different continents.

Vael may be part of the bonus mission pack update for November because he claims to have been on all three continents and said he experienced the Tengu Wars one of the four things said to be shown during this update.
