Merchants,[1][2] sometimes known as Carters[3][4] or Traders,[5] were Non-Player Characters featured in Blood Omen 2. They were travelling merchants featured in Chapter 7:The Canyons, they presumably couriered supplies between Meridian and the rest of Nosgoth. Along their route, they were frequently attacked by Smugglers and Lesser demons[BO2]. Merchants also worked in the Wharves[BO2] and were presumably involved in sea trade as well.[6]

NotesEdit

  • Some Merchants seemed to be actively working with Smugglers in the Canyons, as they were found in a Smuggler's Warehouse and Smugglers in the area were also neutral to them in that area. Merchants could also be found imprisoned in cells inside a Sarafan gatehouse,[4][7] or restrained as Chained humans in other gatehouses[BO2]. Other Merchants could be found wandering the Canyons (without Carts) or huddling by fires[BO2] (these Merchants are apparently looking for something which appears seasonally in the Canyons)[8]
  • Merchants are labelled as "mrchnt" in debug messages[BO2], but they are given a variety of less precise names in scripts, including "Man",[8] "Fisherman"[6] and "Prisoner"[7]
  • The unidentified female NPC class seen in the Wharves, has a similar debug message to the Merchants ("mrchn"), perhaps suggesting that they are a female variant of the male merchant class[BO2].
  • Minor character Turo, seen at the start ofChapter 7:The Canyons, has a Merchant NPC character model[BO2]; given their role as 'fishermen' (see above), Jack and Plunkett, the unseen and missing NPC's in the Wharves, could be considered to be 'merchants'.[9]
