Melus Petilius is an Imperial champion living in Brindle Home. He was once a paladin and would rush off to help anyone in need. Melus defeated a horde of goblins that attacked the town and even single-handedly cleared a nest of minotaurs, but one day while away fighting Vena died suddenly of a fever and he never forgave himself for not being there when she needed him most.
Because of this Melus sworn an oath to never raise a weapon again and visits the grave of his wife Vena Petilius everyday. His good deeds and honorable nature have offended Molag Bal who wants to force Melus Petilius to break his oath and give in to his temptation to fight.
"She was a good woman, and Melus loved her as best he could. He was off fighting when she died. A sudden fever, and she was gone. Don't think he ever forgave himself for not being there when she passed. He swore then never to raise a weapon again. He lives alone now. Moved into a cabin not far outside of town. It's near where he buried Vena." -Towns Folk
"I will not fight you, friend. I have taken a vow. My gods will protect me." -Melus Petilius
"No... you're dead! I killed you myself! What manner of creature are you? Will I be tormented with your image forever?" -Melus Petilius
"Near Brindle Home you will find Melus Petilius. A good man. An honorable man. He disgusts me." -Molag Bal
"Well, it seems you've accomplished the task set out for you. Well done. Another man damned. Another ruined soul." -Molag Bal
