Among-the-Hist is a male Argonian follower who can be found in Boulderfall Cave. Although initially the warlock inside the cave was disabled, this change was reverted due to the potential to break radiant quests. However, as a result, the warlock may bring the dead child Igna to life, destroying the opening sequence for the character.

If the PC is a vampire, Among-the-Hist will refuse to follow and much of his dialogue will be inaccessible as a result. Bringing the character near the NPC Rinori will result in an idle commentary regarding her disease, which is explored later in the quest Vigilance and Virtue.

Vigilance and Virtue
Among-the-Hist is one of two protagonists in the quest. As he makes his appearance halfway through the opening act, bringing him along as a follower prior to the start of the quest will disable Viranya’s dialogue.

  1. I came across this npc during the bladebind quest. But he will not speak to me and is always both hostile and essential. result: stalemate. Is this a bug?

        1. Then the explanation is simple. You have an existing follower from the mod. Among the Hist doesn’t have a “you already have someone with you” dialogue, it just doesn’t show up.

          Dismissing said follower or using “set 3dnpcfollowercount to 0” will show it.

  2. I’m experiencing a huge problem with the cave where Among-The-Hist is found. No matter how fast I kill her, I can’t prevent the necromage from resurrecting the child, Inga, who becomes invulnerable. At the point Among-the-Hist starts attacking her while she cowers and screams, as well as attacking my pc, until I attack him and incapacitate him. At that point Inga gets up and leaves and Among-The-Hist launches into his normal dialogue, which states, of course, that Inga is dead. It’s all very confusing and I don’t know how to fix the problem.

    Also, if I don;t recruit Among-The-Hist on the spot (which I can’t if another 3DNPC is following me), he disappears and I can’t find him again.

  3. Encountering this NPC was a rare treat! Great voice and acting and I found myself listening to the entire conversation rather than clicking through as I sometimes do with others. A shame he doesn’t have the time for more characters. Really did a great job with this one.

  4. I was starting a new playthrough with Alternate Start – Live Another Life, chose “warlock’s thrall” and it spawned me in this cave, with the warlock and this character fighting each other. Among-the-hist won (since he’s essential) and he started his normal conversations. This was a perfect start since I was planning on playing a paladin type character (started as a warlock’s thrall to give my character an incentive to hate all things undead/evil). So I was really happy when I heard this guy’s story just after “waking up” from being a thrall and saw that I could have him as a follower. Great voice acting and back story so far!

  5. Hi there, I love this mod! I just wanted to tell you that I don’t seem to have a dismiss option for this character. I am using Amazing Follower Tweaks, and that menu does not show up with him either. All of my other mods are purely cosmetic.

    Could someone shed light on this for me?
