- Aventus Aretino[Part]

Aventus Aretino is a north kid in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

History [edit | Edit source]

When he was young, his mother died. Ulfric Sturmmantel sent him to the Ehrenhall Orphanage in Rifton. There he developed a strong hatred of Grelod the Kind, who ran the home in a terrible and cruel manner. After Aventus escaped from the orphanage, he moved back to the center of Windhelm, where his dead mother's house is, and asked for the help of the Dark Brotherhood by performing the Black Sacrament.

Interactions [edit | Edit source]

Attention spoilers! The following section could anticipate essential elements of action!

Rumors that he has practiced the Black Sacrament are spreading across Skyrim. When the Dragonborn finds out about this, they set off to investigate the matter. Upon arrival, Aventus confuses the Dragonborn with a member of the Dark Brotherhood and instructs the player to find Grelod the benevolent in the questLost innocence to kill. After you do that, you get an Arentino family heirloom from him and the boy returns to the orphanage.

The reason the Black Sacrament was useless is simple. At the time, the Dark Brotherhood had no audience and had to rely on rumors it picked up in Skyrim. So the Dragonborn just came first.

Trivia [edit | Edit source]

  • If you sneak up on him while he is performing the Black Sacrament and hit him, he will say: "Wait! It shouldn't work that way!" After that, all you have to do is walk a few steps away from him and back again to be able to continue as normal.
