Knantuk is a Scavenger and Seer living in the Swallows. When the player goes looking for Revnar’s partner Mornar he secretly follows and reveals himself after the player finds Mornar’s body. Knantuk insists they must take Mornar’s eyes back to Revnar as proof of his death.
Knantuk is later seen being yelled at by Delmon for failing a difficult mission and losing all his companions. He explains the library curators at Veneficus University asked the Scavengers to collect information on a mage called Renoir. Knantuk agrees to give the task another shot if the player accompanies him.
