Durden was an unseen, yet named minor Human (non-player) character mentioned in Blood Omen 2.

Durden was a human who was apparently murdered by Vampires just prior to Kain's entry to the Lower City (or possibly before Kain's revival). In In Darkness We Gather as Kain entered the Lower City, he overheard two malepeasants discussing Durden's death[BO2] "last night" and how he had appeared drained of blood; being the third victim found - the story served to highlight the fears of Meridian's human population.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

Durden's story showed that there were Vampires still present in Meridian (several Peasant NPC's up to this point had shown doubt as to whether the vampires still existed, or this was just 'a front' for the Sarafan [2]). Durden's murderer is not known but it may be Sebastian given his later feedings in the Lower City[BO2].
