Dougal Keane

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Spoiler alert: The following text contains spoilers relating to the story of Ghosts of Ascalon.
Dougal Keane is a male human who is a major character in Ghosts of Ascalon. He was born around the time of the sylvari's first appearance in the world in Divinity's Reach. As a child, he emigrated to Ebonhawke and served in the Ebon Vanguard. He left the Ebon Vanguard in 1319 AE with his unit and was believed dead by the vanguard. He and his unit traveled to Ascalon City from Lion's Arch where they were all killed except for Dougal. Sometime later, he worked for the Durmand Priory briefly, but left due to a disagreement about their book-lending policy.

In 1324 AE, he was hired by an asura named Clagg, to help his krewe in disarming traps and recovering the Golem's Eye from the crypts below Divinity's Reach. Shortly after he and his group resurfaced and were arrested by the Seraph, he was released by Riona Grady on Almorra Soulkeeper and Queen Jennah's orders. He was recruited by the Vigil to aid in finding the Claw of the Khan-Ur from Ascalon City with Riona and Ember Doomforge and was accompanied by Killeen. While preparing for the expedition, Dougal was attacked by a drunk Gullik Oddsson because he did not spread the tale of Gyda Oddsdottir, who died in the crypts. Gullik then joined Dougal's group to reprimand his actions.

He survived the attack on Lion's Arch and can now be found in the Vigil Keep in Gendarran Fields.

[edit] Dialogue

First time talking to him
"I recognize you. [Character Name], right? My name is Dougal Keane. I'd been wondering if I'd see you come through here at some point."
Talk more option tango.png
"Do I know you?"
"As a member of the Vigil, I get pertinent information sent my way. You've been making a name for yourself, but I'm sure you're aware of that fact."
Talk more option tango.png
"You're with the Vigil? You don't look like it."
"I've never been one for uniforms. General Soulkeeper made an exception on the whole dress code thing. She kind of owes me one."
Talk more option tango.png
"What do you do for the Vigil?"
I mentor the younger Vigil members about the dangers they may face in the field. Of course, I do keep an eye out to see if anything interesting pops up. still an adventurer at heart, I guess."
Talk more option tango.png
"What can you teach me, Vigil teacher?"
"I've got a lot of experience as an adventurer, which I'd be happy to pass along. How can I help you?"
Talk more option tango.png
"Have any tips on navigating dungeons?"
"That happens to be a specialty of mine. I can tell you about traps, combat tactics, or just general techniques for survival."
Talk more option tango.png
"Tell me about traps."
"Traps are not to be taken lightly, but every trap has a mechanism. Once you work out what that is, there's always a way to get past it."
Talk back option tango.png
"I want to know more about navigating dungeons."
Talk end option tango.png
"Thanks. See you around."
Talk more option tango.png
"Tell me about fighting enemies in dungeons."
"Things that are strong enough to live in dungeons are the most dangerous members of their kind. Never take your eyes off of them and never give them a chance to surround you."
Talk back option tango.png
"I want to know more about navigating dungeons."
Talk end option tango.png
"Thanks. See you around."
Talk more option tango.png
"Tell me about surviving in dungeons."
"Watch your teammates. Play off each other, and don't be afraid to change things up. A quick swap of your tactics can be the difference between victory and defeat."
Talk back option tango.png
"I want to know more about navigating dungeons."
Talk end option tango.png
"Thanks. See you around."
Talk more option tango.png
"Actually, I'd like to hear your stories instead."
"I suppose I'm most known for being one of the group of adventurers who traveled into Ascalon City to retrieve the Claw of the Khan-Ur."
Talk more option tango.png
"How'd you get into Ascalon City? Isn't it overrun with ghosts?"
"I'd been there before, though that's a memory too painful for me to talk about. We found the Claw in the Royal Treasury there and returned it to Lion's Arch."
Talk more option tango.png
"What happened on the way back?"
"Very little, honestly. We returned and delivered the Claw to the charr, which brought them to the negotiating table. The rest is history."
Talk back option tango.png
"I want to know more."
Talk end option tango.png
"Interesting. Talk to you later."
Talk end option tango.png
"Thanks for the information. Talk to you later."
Talk more option tango.png
"Tell me about your group."
"There were five of us. Riona and Ember, human and charr. Both of the Vigil. Gullik, a norn warrior. And then there... were the sylvari Killeen and the asura Kranxx."
Talk more option tango.png
"Why the hesitation when you mentioned Killeen and Kranxx?"
"They didn't survive the journey. Killeen was killed by a Branded creature and Kranxx... well, he died a hero. And that's all I'll say about that."
Talk more option tango.png
"Do you keep in touch with the others?"
"I'm still close with Ember, and Gullik comes through Lion's Arch on some wild adventure."
Talk more option tango.png
"You didn't mention Riona."
"Riona betrayed our group. She wanted to give the Claw to the Flame Legion hoping it would lead to a charr civil war. It's kind of a sore spot for me."
Talk back option tango.png
"I want to know more."
Talk end option tango.png
"Good-bye."
Talk end option tango.png
"Thanks."
Talk more option tango.png
"Why was the Claw so important?"
"Simply put, it opened up the chance for peace between the humans and the charr. But there were a lot of people making strides in that direction before I came into the picture."
Talk back option tango.png
"I want to know more."
Talk end option tango.png
"Thanks for the chat."
Talk more option tango.png
"What are you doing now?"
