Morven is a Breton witchblade living in Markarth at Nepos's house where he works as a servant.

He is an undercover Forsworn agent and bodyguard of Nepos the Nose, one of the most influential citizens in Markarth. He spends all of his time cleaning the house, without ever eating or sleeping. Morven becomes hostile and must be killed during your investigation into the recent Forsworn attacks.

He wears a set of barkeep clothes and a pair of shoes. He is equipped with an iron dagger, and carries a key to Nepos's house, as well as a selection of lower-class items and gold.
