|Elvil Vidron (elvil vidron)|
He is wearing common pants and a common amulet. He is also carrying a redware pot, a skull, a goblet, an ash statue, and a piece of muck, black anther, and bittergreen petals. Aside from his natural resistance to fire and the sanctuary provided by his ancestors, he knows no spells.
- If you attack the Dreamer standing near Elvil (provided you have advanced far enough in the main quest for the Dreamers to appear), Elvil will attack you. In fact, if you even speak to this Dreamer and Taunt him into attacking you, or if you even cast Frenzy on him, Elvil will hear it from the other end of the city and come and attack you with his fists. Since Elvil carries an Ash Statue, this seems to indicate that it's deliberate, and that after you persuade him that he is not the Nerevarine, he turns to the worship of Dagoth Ur instead.
- And if Elvil does come up and attack you, you have to let him actually hit you first (not just swing and miss), otherwise you'll be accounted a murderer for killing him. In fact there may be a bug here, because sometimes the player appears to get a bounty even if Elvil hits you first, maybe depending on whether you attacked the Dreamer (who is peaceful unless provoked) or taunted him into attacking you. This almost certainly *is* a bug since it means you can get a bounty for murdering Elvil even when you never did anything to provoke him, and let him hit you first (it is perfectly legal to attack and kill the Dreamer, but it seems that the game counts the whole "striking the first blow" as being the blow struck against the Dreamer that angers Elvil and causes it to be classed as murder if you kill him in self-defence: whereas if you let the Dreamer hit you first, you can safely kill Elvil.)
