Dravos is a Dremora who defected from the ranks of Mehrunes Dagon to serve the Lord of Debauchery, Sanguine. He holds court in Rift Watchtower with a handful of other revelers, all of whom are locked in a perpetual state of bliss. The only exception is a Dark Elf named Batheru, who serves as the doorman for his eternal bacchanalia.

Note: As a Dremora, Dravos does not properly headtrack the player. As a result of Dravos’ placement, the boss Orc who resides in Rift Watchtower was moved to the entrance of the fort. Earlier versions disabled the NPC, which broke radiant bounty quests that required slaying him. He was subsequently enabled and moved to the tower exterior, but saves that were already affected may have to use the console to complete the quest.

  1. Well, there is still an issue with the bandit leader bounty target placement, as I arrived at the watchtower a while back to find him at the top of the watchtower smacking a dremora around with his warhammer. Said dremora gets in the way of one of my arrows and is instantly killed (which I didn’t initially see a problem with since I needed a daedra heart for a nearby Orc stronghold quest, which he did actually have). Out of curiosity, I examined him and made a note of his reference ID in the console. Later on I looked up the reference ID and find that he’s part of the Interesting NPCs mod.

    I can’t see any other reference to ‘Dravos’ in the readme, so hopefully he’s not required by any quests..

    1. He may have climbed up the Watchtower, dunno. Never heard of that happening before. He usually just spawns way outside the tower.

      I think I might’ve moved him closer though, maybe that’s why. I’ll move him far away again.

      1. Hmm, okay. I could certainly hear fighting happening up on top of the watchtower as I was approaching it, so he must have headed up there fairly promptly. Not realising that there were any Interesting NPCs in the area, I assumed it was just an odd disagreement between bandits, or an animal had got up there.

  2. I’d like to point out a small error when talking to Dravos.

    He says something along the lines of, “You may like to talk to Batheru,” but the subtitle says, “You may like to talk to Dravos,” referring to himself in the subtitle but Batheru in the dialogue, which is a mistake on someone’s behalf here.

    Just thought you ought to know in case no one’s pointed it out yet!

    1. Also, he also says, “So I slew the old man…(etcetc)” and the subtitles say, “So I killed the old man…(etcetc)” Another small error!

    1. Thanks for the feedback. Impressive that given all the voices recorded and unrecorded in human history, Dravos managed to be the most annoying of all.

      Quite a feat, if you think about it. I’m sure he’d find a way to celebrate this most infamous of titles. Perhaps you could serve as the doorman..
