Appears in Skyrim

Kvenel the Tongue was an ancient Nord hero, and master of the thu'um. It is said his favored weapons to carry into battle were a hand-axe and sword, named Okin and Eduj respectively.[1] According to legend, Kvenel commissioned master blacksmith Haman Forgefire to forge Okin for him, to match his beloved sword, Eduj.[2]

Upon his death, Kvenel was entombed in Volunruud, Skyrim. His burial chamber was sealed with a special lock that could only be opened with two ceremonial replicas of Okin and Eduj, which were then put on display and guarded in other parts of the tomb.[3] Memory of his life faded as the eras passed and he was largely forgotten, save for old hymns and mythic accounts.[1] In 4E 201 the Last Dragonborn explored Volunruud and encountered the ghost of Kvenel. After defeating the spirit, Kvenel's legendary weapons were retrieved from his remains.[3]
