Keeping the Katana[edit]

Is there any way to hide Renault's Kitana from Baurus, like maybe stash it on a Mythic Dawn corpse or something because I'd love to take the blade and add it to my item collection. ImmortalKaine 02:26, 13 January 2008 (EST)

You know,it wasn't until I began reading this wiki that you could have taken Glenroy's katana as well (with Baurus confiscating both at the end). In all those previous runs, I never found Glenroy's katana on his person or fallen from his hand, which leads me to conclude that this katana disappears no matter where you place it. I'd have to venture that Captain Renault's katana exhibits the same behavior. —Dark Spark 04:46, 13 January 2008 (EST)
Glenroy's Katana falls from his hand when he gets killed. Matter of fact I stashed it on a Mythic Dawn corpse and I'm right now going to retrieve it from the corpse, as Baurus has already spoken to me and I am able to leave. I'll reply with my results. ImmortalKaine 17:36, 13 January 2008 (EST)
It disappeared from the corpse -.- But yes, both Katanas drop. I've had both Glenroy and Renaults. There must be a way to stash them past Baurus....I'm wondering, once the King get assassinated, maybe run ahead through the cavern with the Katana, drop it somewhere or store it in a Container then run back and finish up and choose your class....

Both Glenroy's and Renault's Akavira Katanas have an attached script (CGAkaviriLongswordScript), the comments for which state "this script disables everything in the world after Baurus speaks to you, to make sure the player doesn't leave with it." In other words, the developers wanted to ensure that you could not keep these weapons, and the script ensures that the weapons disappear, whether they're in your inventory or whether you stash them somewhere else. Given that ImmortalKaine's tests confirm this, I'd say that provides enough evidence that the answer is "no, you can't keep the weapons". --NepheleTalk 23:30, 13 January 2008 (EST)

I managed to kind of keep Renault's katana; I hid in the corridor leading off from the room that Septim dies in (where the Mythic Dawn agent comes from), such that Baurus could talk to me, but i could scoot back where he couldn't reach once I had picked my character (he stops talking, and then starts again to give you the quest. It is at the end of this second piece of dialogue that he confiscates the swords). I managed to take the katana right outside the sewer, but the main quest doesn't start, and if you go back later Baurus doesn't give you the quest, with no way around it that I could see. In short, not really worth it! — Unsigned comment by (talk) on 25 August 2009


Is there some way to keep Renault alive? Or is her death scripted?

SkoomaManiac 14:53, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Yup, scripted death (see here). You can use resurrect on her, but that's about it. --SerCenKing Talk 15:02, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Renault - name[edit]

Isn't her name a reference to the car company? - ZuTheSkunk 22:42, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

There is already a better - and more likely - reference in the Notes section. --Krusty 13:06, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

which will be taken by Baurus if you have it[edit]

Have what? CapnZapp (talk) 10:22, 14 October 2012 (GMT)

Obtaining her katana through the console[edit]

Today, I had the amazing idea to do a run of Oblivion where I try to collect all items, sadly the katana's of both Renault and Glenroy are removed after talking to Baurus. Trying to get them through the console said it had given it to me, while it clearly had not when I checked immediatly after. Does anyone have a solution for this? I am not able to use mods. -Aetherwolf April 22nd 2015
