This article is about the NPC added by Dawnguard. For the NPC in Markarth, see Morven.
Morven Stroud is a Breton trader from High Rock whose soul was trapped before his death. He unknowingly brought fake ingredients to a coven of necromancers, who killed him, therefore trapping his soul in the Soul Cairn. He can be found to the east of the gap in the large wall which runs through the center of the Soul Cairn, standing in front of a building. The ruins of his cart lie behind him.
When asked about what little he has left, he offers to trade you a piece of leveled gear for 25 soul husks.
For 25 Soul Husks, Morven will trade an item to you. The armor and weapons are leveled and enchanted. The spell tome is of an uncertain variety. He will give a unique response according to your choice of item:
|Sword||"A wondrous blade... ahhh, never mind. Just take the darn thing."|
|Battleaxe||"I can't believe I'm trading this for some dried up plants. Oh well, a sale's a sale."|
|Light Armor||"Well, I hate to see it go, but what am I gonna do with it here anyway?"|
|Heavy Armor||"This won't stop your soul from getting ripped out, but at least you'll look good when your corpse hits the ground."|
|Spell Tome||"Sure. Here you go. Can't understand a word of it, maybe it will do you some good."|
- His leveled gear appears to be identical to that generated randomly in dungeons.
- The "sword" may be a mace or other one-handed weapon.
- If you are having trouble finding Soul Husks, there is a farmer east of the main castle gate who appears to be growing them. There are 14 growing there.
- Unlike other ghosts and souls, he is not immune to paralysis.
