Vence Nuthaleus is a human male in the Dwendalian Empire. As an NPC, Vence Nuthaleus is played by Matthew Mercer.



Vence Nuthaleus is a human male in his late twenties with softly curling golden blond hair combed back to the shoulder behind his ears. He is clean shaven and speaks with a Zemnian accent. His apparently regular dress is a long blue set of fine wool robes.[1]




In Xhorhas, Vence - with direction from Obann - set up an Abyssal Anchor in the home of a group of stone giants to allow demons to pour in, displacing the giants and causing disruption to the Xhorhasian war machine construction facility nearby.

"Agreements" (2x61)

Jester scryed on the piece of cloth found in the Abyssal Anchor and saw Vence in a luxurious chamber speaking into a sending stone, setting up a meeting at the Overcrow Apothecary in thirteen days. He then began to study a book titled "The King That Crawls".

"Domestic Respite" (2x62)

Jester scryed on Vence again the night before the Overcrow meeting date. He was in a large luxurious chamber, apparently taking notes on a meeting taking place at the other end of the room. The meeting appeared to be between high-level Empire figures discussing war strategy, including one person referred to as "My Liege" by the others. Jester was ejected from the Scry when the figures approached Vence.

"Intervention" (2x63)

Jester scryed on Vence again immediately after the Overcrow encounter, and saw him in the same room he was in her first scry, still reading "The King That Crawls" and making notes in Celestial.

"A Tangled Web" (2x77)

Dairon recognized Vence as being the Annex to Ludinus Da'leth of the Cerberus Assembly.

"Titles and Tattoos" (2x84)

The Mighty Nein discussed with Zeenoth Vence's involvement with the Angel of Irons cult and its potential ties to the Chained Oblivion.

"The Threads Converge" (2x85)

Jester's Scrying saw Vence in the Chantry of the Dawn in Rexxentrum handing Cardinal Respa two scrolls taken from the vaults of Vasselheim and an Abyssal Anchor. Respa saw the Scrying sensor and flew into a rage at Vence for allowing himself to unwittingly reveal their plans to outsiders, and the Scry abruptly ended.

"Stone to Clay" (2x91)

Through the use of a Sending spell, Jester found out that Vence had been captured by the Empire and was ready for transport to the Dynasty once negotiations started.

"High Seas, High Stakes" (2x99)

During the peace negotiations, Jester was looking through the magnifying glass. She noticed as Vence was handed over to the Dynasty as part of the peace treaties.[2]
