Glover Mallory is a Breton blacksmith living in Raven Rock, in Solstheim. He is the father of Sapphire, brother of Delvin Mallory, and a member of the Thieves Guild.

He is found at the Blacksmith's shop upon first arriving at Raven Rock. Just like the other villagers of Raven Rock, he can also be found at the Earth Stone working on it and worshiping at it. When he does, he acts and sounds like he has been indoctrinated.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

An Axe to Find[edit | edit source]

Glover will give a quest to retrieve his Ancient Nordic Pickaxe from Crescius Caerellius, after having it stolen from him, and also give it as a reward for the quest, claiming he has no use for it. It is also implied that he stole the pickaxe from the Skaal Village.

[edit | edit source]

He gives the quest to retrieve the Bonemold Formula from Esmond Tyne in Castle Karstaag Caverns, assuming the Dragonborn is a member of the Thieves Guild.

After the completion of this quest he allows access to his basement, which is filled with rare items including the Blackguard's Armor and a Thief Cache. There is a note to Sapphire in his basement, which reveals that he is Sapphire's father. It is also worth noting that, according to the Bonemold Formula, he has a younger sister.

If you talk to Sapphire in The Ragged Flagon - Cistern, after taking the letter, there will be an option to give her the letter. If you do give it to her, she will reward you with an Exquisite Sapphire; a unique item.

It's All In The Taste[edit | edit source]

Glover Mallory can be a potential recipient of Geldis Sadri's sujamma that he asks of the Dragonborn to give out to the people of Raven Rock.

The Fishing Job[edit | edit source]

Glover Mallory has a chance of being a victim of the Thieves Guild, through the radiant quest "The Fishing Job," despite the fact that Delvin Mallory, Glover's own brother, is the one who assigns the task.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

How did you end up in Raven Rock? "A fine question, and the one that I hear most often from visitors to our town. I wish I had a more romantic tale to tell, but I was simply seeking my fortune and chose Raven Rock to ply my trade. Besides, knowing how to repair bonemold armor wasn't very useful in Riften."
Who taught you that? "I had a friend over there, a dark elf named Vanryth... a very talented armorsmith. Spent a lot of time with the guy swapping smithing techniques. Learned a heck of a lot, including how to repair bonemold. After he moved on to greener pastures, I decided to pack up, move out here and put those lessons to the test. Been here ever since."

Dragonborn[edit | edit source]

Do you know someone called Miraak? "No, I... Wait. Maybe. I don't know how I know that name..."

Which is it? Yes or no? "I... I'm not sure. I don't want to talk about this."
Show: An Axe to Find
Outside Glover Mallory's House:

"You haven't seen Crescius Caerellius have you? That foolish old man's taken my pickaxe again!"

Why all the fuss over a simple pickaxe? "No, no, no. This isn't just your run-of-the-mill pickaxe... I'm talking about an Ancient Nordic Pickaxe. They don't exactly grow on trees, you know."
Can't you just get the guard to find Crescius? "Um, I prefer to handle these things on my own. Look, if you see Crescius, tell him to give me that pickaxe back and I'll pay you for the trouble."
What's an Ancient Nordic Pickaxe? "It's the only tool tough enough to crack Stalhrim, is what it is. Not many of those beauties left in the world... forging them is a lost art. Tge one Crescius "borrowed" came from the Skaal Village up north. I, uh, traded them some goods for it."
Is Stahlrim a type of ore? "Calling Stahlrim an ore is like calling my forge a campfire. Some say it's "enchanted ice," but I think there's more to it than that."
I assume it's rare. "I don't think I've come across more than a chunk or two in my lifetime, and smithing's my trade. If you're looking to learn more, you should head over to the Skaal Village. Someone there's to bound to know about it than I do."

"You tell Crescius he better give that pickaxe back to me, or else."

If the pickaxe is retrieved:

"Find my pickaxe yet?"

I have your Ancient Nordic Pickaxe. "So you finally tracked down old Crescius, eh? Quite a character, isn't he. Tell you what. Since you went through all the trouble of finding it for me and all, you keep it."
After all that, why? "I just wanted to remind that codger you can't just go around taking things from other people. Now that you've delivered the message, I'm satisfied. Besides, that pickaxe hasn't done me any good in years. Maybe you can put it to good use."

If Crescius is allowed to keep the pickaxe:

"Find my pickaxe yet?"

Crescius lost your Ancient Nordic Pickaxe. "Blast! That careless old fool. Well, thanks for trying anyway. Here you go... for your trouble."

Conversations[edit | edit source]

Adril Arano[edit | edit source]

Adril: "Captain Veleth's mentioned how valuable you've become to the Redoran Guard. The Councilor and I appreciate your assistance."
Glover: "I'm glad to lend a hand."
Adril: "You must be using quite a bit of your raw materials repairing their weapons and armor. I'm sorry we can't compensate you."
Glover: "Not to worry, Adril. I'll recover my losses in due time."

Captain Veleth[edit | edit source]

Veleth: "I don't know what your playing at, Glover... but something about you just doesn't add up."
Glover: "Understandable considering the differences between us."
Veleth: "I'm not talking about that. I have a knack for smelling trouble, and for some reason you reek of it."
Glover: "I promise you, I have nothing but good intentions towards everyone in this town."

Fethis Alor[edit | edit source]

Glover: "Fethis! How's that pretty young daughter of yours doing?"
Fethis: "What in the name of the Black Hands is that supposed to mean?!"
Glover: "Nothing... I... I was just making conversation."
Fethis: "Next time you feel like having a conversation, talk to someone else."

Garyn Ienth[edit | edit source]

Garyn: "So where do you hail from, Glover?"
Glover: "Skyrim. Born and raised."
Garyn: "Have any kinfolk?"
Glover: "Just a brother. Lives in Riften."
Garyn: "That's quite a distance from here. What's his trade? He a blacksmith as well?"
Glover: "Nah. He... finds things people are looking for. Makes a good bit of coin doing it, too."

Geldis Sadri[edit | edit source]

Geldis: "How's business, Glover?"
Glover: "The usual. Piles of armor to repair for the Redoran Guard."
Geldis: "Aren't you pleased to keeping busy?"
Glover: "These hands were made for bending steel... not mending bonemold. But, it's certainly better than not working at all."

Vendil Severin[edit | edit source]

Glover: "So what do you think, Vendil? You think this town will survive?"
Vendil: "I don't know. There are many who would've already expected us to leave this place."
Glover: "Sure, but then where would you go?"
Vendil: "A fair question, my friend... a fair question."
