Gnives is a Khajiit thief found in the Ragged Flagon. As a cat, he uses his heightened sense of hearing to gain an advantage both as an assassin and a thief. He has previous ties to the Dark Brotherhood and also has a strong love of cooking. His initial conversation will vary depending on your race and sneak level.
Gnives is one of the more popular requests for followers. However, the actor is extremely busy with paid projects and it is unlikely the role will be expanded further as a result. During the events with Mercer, Gnives will remain in the Flagon as opposed to his usual routine to avoid him casually strolling through to practice his archery.
