Velfred the Outlaw is a House Hlaalu quest available to the Nerevarine, if they joined House Hlaalu, during the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.



Upon reaching the rank of Lawman in House Hlaalu, quests can be received from Crassius Curio in Vivec City, Hlaalu Canton. Curio will ask to get Velfred the Outlaw to pay some smuggling fees to the house. Curio does not say where the outlaw can be found but suggests trying asking around Hla Oad.

Travel to Hla Oad. The people there will say that Velfred and his ship are at a secret dock to the southwest of town. Once the outlaw is found, either convince him to pay the fee (raise his disposition to around 75) or simply kill him.

Then, return to Curio in Vivec to complete the quest and receive 500 GoldIcon if the outlaw was killed, or 1000 GoldIcon if persuaded. Curio's disposition increases by ten and five points of Hlaalu faction reputation will be received either way.


  • There are two skill books in the captain's room on his ship. Charwich-Koniinge Letters, v1, increasing the Unarmored skill, and Bone, Book II increasing the Medium Armor skill.
  • The Nerevarine can find the Ash Statues on the lower deck of his ship. Mentioning these will make Velfred attack the Nerevarine.
  • If Crassius is asked about the ash statues, he will warn the Nerevarine that they are dangerous, and say he was not aware Velfred was involved with them.

  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • Even if you convince Velfred to pay House Hlaalu, rather than killing him, Crassius still thanks you for killing him.
  • The game does not discern between different ash statutes. If the topic is active and you talk to Velfred about it, he will attack, whether you saw his statues or not. This dialog features a second bug: You can only talk about ash statues if you do not carry one.
