The Tapster was a minor character in Blood Omen 2. She was the Barkeeper of the Red Raven Pub in the Lower City .


In Chapter 3:Lower City, with Umah occupied investigating the Industrial Quarter, she sent Kain to find Sanctuary in the Lower City, using several Cabal contacts to pass on information regarding Sanctuary's secret location . The first of these contacts was the Tapster of the Red Raven Pub.[1] Upon being questioned by Kain, The Tapster revealed that she was not a member of the Cabal[2] and had merely been given a message by "the night itself"[3] (probably a Vampire using Mist or similarly stealthy Dark Gift). She relayed the message, telling Kain the location of the next Cabal Contact - the News Vendor further down the road. She also gave him the means to pass Duncan's gate (by telling Duncan that he worked for Ducket's Traders ).[3]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In true Blood Omen style, the Tapster, as a barkeeper is protected from harm by her bar, and does little to react if Kain massacres her customers[BO2].
  • The Tapster will continue onto a conversation with another (NPC) patron regarding the Sarafan if left alone by Kain[4][BO2].
  • Deleted dialogue suggests that the meeting with the Tapster originally took place in a stables at the back of the Red Raven.[5]
