Dryston is a Breton barbarian working for the Forsworn. During the related quest he tries to beat you up after they nose around too much. He will arrogantly tell you that "You've been digging around where you don't belong. It's time you learned a lesson." If you ask him about who he is working for he will simply reply with "Someone who doesn't like you asking questions." to avoid telling you the truth. If you try to act tough and say that you don't listen to threats he will respond by saying "You'll listen to this." before attacking you.
After you beat him in a brawl on the streets he will fall to the ground while gasping for air and mutter "Ugh. You mangy piece of pit-bait!" You can then freely ask him for answers and, being in no position to argue, he will quickly tell the player that "I was sent by Nepos the Nose. The old man hands out the orders. He told me to make sure you didn't get in the way. That's all I know, I swear!"
