Nivan Dalvilu outside his house in Bleaker's Way

Nivan Dalvilu is a Dark Elf warlock residing in Bleaker's Way, a small village in the Great Forest. Patriarch of the Dalvilu family, Nivan is one of the targets of the Daedric Quest received from Mephala. Killing him and planting incriminating evidence will spark a bloody confrontation between the town's two clans.

One of the two leaders of the small community, Nivan lives in peaceful co-existence with the other family in town, the Ulfgars. Despite being a powerful wizard, he believes in compromise over confrontation and as a result enjoys great respect among the townsfolk. He wakes up every morning at 6am and spends the first two hours of the day enjoying his breakfast at home. At 8am he heads outside where he will meet up with Satha for a chat. She stays with him for two hours, before he gets a visit from Malyani Dalvilu, also for two hours. At noon he heads back inside his house for two hours of wandering. At 2pm he enters the town's popular inn for four hours of socialising with both families. At 6pm he returns to his house for some more wandering and at 8pm he heads outside once again and finds himself a spot in front of Arvin Dalvilu's house, occasionally chatting with the other town leader, Hrol Ulfgar. He returns home at 10pm and stays there until his bedtime at midnight.

While the rest of the family is clad in lower-class clothing, Nivan's status as clan leader shows as his attire is pure upper-class: A black & burgundy outfit with gold trimmed shoes. He carries an iron shortsword, a spare red velvet garment, his house key, and a surprisingly meager amount of gold. Nivan knows a leveled set of warlock spells (always strongest for Nivan's skill level), as well as one extra major Destruction spell.

When you approach him, he will give you the typical Bleaker's Way greeting and welcome you to the settlement. But he will also give you a bit of background info on the relationship between the Dalvilus and Ulfgars: "Dalvilus have lived here peacefully with Ulfgars for generations. As leaders, Hrol Ulfgar and I work hard to preserve that tradition." When asked about their patriarch, all the Dalvilu family members will tell you the same thing: "He is the head of our family. He works powerful magic, but his true gift is compromise. He is a wise, wise leader." The members of the Ulfgar clan will show their respect as well: "He leads the Dalvilu family. He is a wise man, and a powerful wizard." Indeed, if he is killed in the related quest, his family members will bemoan: "Nivan is murdered! How could this have happened? Everyone was fond of Nivan, including the Ulfgar clan."
