Dervenin is a half-mad Bosmer beggar wandering the streets of Solitude mumbling to himself. He is distraught over being abandoned by his master and wants you to get him to take him back. He wears a set of common farmer's clothing and carries an iron dagger.
When you first see him he will greet you with "You! You'll help me! You help people, right? That's what you do?" He goes on to say "The flame of my master burns low. Without him, we are all lost and forever gray... Please, help us!"
If you ask him about his master he will respond with "He is a great man, but one rarely praised! He rules twin empires that span the length and breadth of our minds! All know him, but few can name him!"
He will still refuse to name him however and will inform you of this by saying "But... he has forbidden me from saying his name. He says it distracts him, and woe to those who draw his ire. But you will know him when you see him. He's the one who made me like this!"
If you ask about his whereabouts he will tell you that "Last I saw him, he was visiting a friend in the Blue Palace. But no one as mundane as the Jarl. No, no... such people are below him. No, he went into the forbidden wing of the palace, to speak with an old friend. Said it had been ages since they had last had tea." Before letting you go he will give you one last gift and tell you that "Oh and you'll need the hip bone... it's very important. No entering Pelagius' Wing without that."
