Lucan Valerius is an Imperial pawnbroker, and the owner of Riverwood Trader in Riverwood. His store was robbed by Arvel the Swift, who stole an antique golden claw and retreated to Bleak Falls Barrow. Lucan will task you with retrieving it.
When you enter the Riverwood Trader for the first time, you can witness an argument between Lucan and his sister Camilla regarding the stolen golden claw:
Camilla: "Well one of us has to do something!"
Lucan: "We are done talking about this."
Camilla: "Well what are you going to do then, huh? Let's hear it!"
Lucan: "I said no! No adventures, no theatrics, no thief-chasing! Oh, a customer. Sorry you had to hear that."
If you ask him about the argument, Lucan will reply "Yes, we did have a bit of a... break-in. But we still have plenty to sell. Robbers were only after one thing. An ornament, solid gold. In the shape of a dragon's claw." At this point, you can offer to bring back the golden claw for him. Lucan will then direct you to the thieves' hideout and offer a reward for the claw's return: "You could? I've got some coin coming in from my last shipment. It's yours if you bring my claw back. If you're going after those thieves, you should head to Bleak Falls Barrow, northeast of town."
Camilla will then question Lucan's plan of sending you to reacquire the claw:
Camilla: "So this is your plan, Lucan?"
Lucan: "Yes. So now you don't have to go, do you?"
Camilla: "Oh really? Well I think your new helper here needs a guide."
Lucan: "Wh- no... I.... Oh, by the Eight, fine. But only to the edge of town!"
After the completion of the quest The Golden Claw, the two siblings can be seen having a conversation about the goods they sell. They will pick between one of three available dialogues:
|Camilla: "Lucan, we don't sell silver buckles, do we? One of the customers was asking."|
|Lucan: "No, dear sister. We do not."|
|Camilla: "Hmm. All right. Do you think... maybe we should?"|
|Lucan: "That's really not at the top of my list, no. Please, Camilla, I need you to focus."|
|Camilla: "Of course, Lucan. Of course. I was just, well... Never mind."|
|Camilla: "We don't sell any imports from Summerset Isle, do we, Lucan?"|
|Lucan: "I'm afraid not."|
|Camilla: "Well, I was thinking... we should. We could stock all kinds of specialty items. You know, to cater to some of our more.... 'eclectic' customers."|
|Lucan: "Dear sister, we talked about this sort of thing before. We sell dry goods, nothing more, nothing less."|
|Camilla: "Okay, okay. Just trying make this place a little less... boring."|
|Camilla: "Lucan, I was thinking we should have a grand sale. Lower the prices by half, maybe get some jugglers. We could attract lots of new customers."|
|Lucan: "A sale? To attract new customers? Camilla, everyone in Riverwood already shops here. There are no more customers."|
|Camilla: "Hmmm... Well, maybe we could go on a sort of trip. Take the wares on the road. Get some new customers."|
|Lucan: "Camilla, really? You don't have better things to do? Because I could certainly find quite a few tasks..."|
|Camilla: "I know, I know. My head's in the clouds again. Just... forget I said anything."|
- If Lucan dies, his sister Camilla Valerius will take over the store.
- Contrary to what Lucan says, Bleak Falls Barrow is west of Riverwood.
