Announcing Casavir Romance: A New Romance Mod for Our Favorite Paladin by Tyroscribe

Good day everyone!

My name is TyroScribe. I have been a moderator for a while on this site and a member of Mara’s modding team on Skyrim Romance 3.0. First, I’d like to thank her for her blessing with this project I am about to discuss and this blog post. I wish her every continued success with SRM 3.0 and Forbidden Love.

Now, onto the details of my project! During my time on the site, I have spoken to countless women who have expressed interest in having a mod where they can romance Casavir and have him along as their follower. This has also been a desire of mine since Casavir is and will forever be my favorite character in SR and in Neverwinter Nights 2, where the character originates. Well, I am pleased to inform you that such a thing will exist and is currently under development. I have brought together some extremely talented people to assist me in it and it is well underway. It will be a completely fleshed out romance where you can have different conversations, flirt with him, and spend time with him in similar ways that you can with Bishop in SRM. There are many other exciting things you can expect to find in it, and I am happy to share some of them with you.

For starters, I have changed his appearance from the SRM version to make him completely my own. I feel this change helps him more embody my vision of who he is. To me, he has always been a firm, intelligent military man who keeps to himself and yet has a soft heart underneath the hard armor he wears. I hope that although he is different from the SRM version that you will welcome him just as kindly into your own heart and love him as much as I do. So you can get a sneak peek of him, here he is:

Secondly, since Casavir is a highly complex, ethical man, I have thought it is only fitting to create an entire story that I feel makes sense for him and does not betray the integrity of who he is. As many can imagine, romancing a man who has taken vows that preclude relationships can seem like a definite challenge, but I have found a way to do it tastefully and logically. I don’t want to spoil too many of the details, but it involves the Knights of the Nine from The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and a castle…and yes, you can live in it with your handsome Paladin by your side! Here are some pictures of it. I spent a long time building it and I hope you love spending time there. The sights are breathtaking and it has a gorgeous interior with lots of space to live and breathe in:

Finally, I would like to say that the mod will include many other fascinating NPCs and, although this is my own mod, I have captured some of the most iconic moments of SRM as a way to pay homage to it. I have created my own ballroom and developed it, although like everything else, it too is different from SRM. You will still visit a clothing store and go shopping for your beautiful dress, but this time, you will do it with Casavir  – and believe me when I say it is quite an experience for the poor man having to watch you be so gorgeous and not being able to do a thing about it. 😛

In closing, thank you for taking the time to read this and your support of this project. If you’d like to help, the greatest need I have currently is for voice actors. I am in high need of them, even for Casavir himself! If you or someone you know would like to audition, please know that ALL ROLES ARE UNPAID. Here are links to a couple sites where you can submit auditions for the various roles available in the mod:

Thank you again and allow me and Casavir to wish you a beyond amazing day :D!

    That is so amazing! This is something I’ve been hoping for. I love Bish, because the characters I usually play in Skyrim are super sassy, hard-headed and a little dirty (crime wise) and not really someone I picture Cas really and truly being interested in. Especially with his belief that she’s a lamb being stalked by a hungry wolf essentially, and she is most definitely very much not. So on those play throughs where I’m NOT playing and assassin or a thief and the dragonborn is a good squeaky clean innocent person I always wish I could have Casavir because no one else really fits, and now soon I can! I hope this project works out I would love to use the mod!!

    Wow! I’ve just seen this news, as I’m a little bit Slowpoke ? But it’s really amazing! I adore NWN2 Casavir, and now I can’t wait for your mod. Good luck!
    P. S. Your version of Casavir is so gorgeous. Even more handsome than NWN2 one ? And I also love your description of him. Sounds promising!

    Please consider adding your mod to Xbox

    I’m like way late in reading this post but I’m kinda excited for this project, which is funny because I didn’t really have any feelings about Casavir in SRM. Was a little bit too ‘Knight and Shining Armour-y’ for my tastes.

    “To me, he has always been a firm, intelligent military man who keeps to himself and yet has a soft heart underneath the hard armor he wears.” But this, this I like. And also because I was reminded a little of Cullen from Dragon Age (gotta love the military men).

    I’m wondering about how you were going to handle the DB’s personality. The main thing I don’t like about SRM 2.0 is that there is little choice on how I wanted my DB to respond to Bishop. And as a result, it established a type of personality that didn’t fit my DB very much, or really at all. Which is why I’m happy that they said they’re going the “Bioware route” for SRM 3.0. Are you going to be doing something similar here as well?

      Hello Nemo.

      Thank you for your interest in my project and your opinion on my Casavir. 🙂

      As for your inquiry about the Dragonborn response choices, my mod will take a similar route as SRM 3.0 in that regard. In my mod, many times, you will get as many as 3 response choices with various personalities attached to them. Other times, you will have 2, and sometimes you will have 1. The reason for this depends on my desire to drive a particular part of the story forward a certain way. As a writer and a modder in a video game medium, it is always a balancing act trying to figure out a way to tell story and yet allow the player to influence the direction their specific playthrough will take. There are moments when you simply cannot allow choices in response types without sacrificing a part of the vision you have for a scene, and other times, you can have more flexibility without making that sacrifice.

      Thank you for the question! It’s a great one! I hope I’ve sufficiently answered it here. 😀

    Thank you so much for your comment, Sajiri. I am pleased that you like my take on his appearance. I have striven to make him truly unique and to give him a bit of age, which fits with how I see him. To me, it was very important to make him appear realistic and firm. I just hope people will give him a chance, get to know him, and with any luck, fall in love with him as much as I have. 😀

    Ive always been a Bishop fan first going all the way back to NWN2, but I did really want to see Casavir fleshed out more, so I am excited to see this. I like his new look, it seems fitting and more unique compared to most NPCs you’d see in skyrim (the rugged viking).

    Great to hear (read)! It doesn’t matter how he will call me *.*
    there are many mods that won’t work with a male character and that was the reason for my question.
    Thank you very much!

    Thank you all for your kind words and support! They mean the universe to me! 😀 You all are fantastic!

    And Nina, to answer your concern about the “female DB flag”, all that was intended is that, much like SRM is, my mod is suited to a female audience. The dialogue reflects that heavily by how Casavir addresses you (i.e. he calls you “my lady”). That said, if a player wishes to play it with a male DB, that is certainly their choice. They will just have to accept the dialogue as it is lol. 🙂 I appreciate you pointing that out so I could clarify it!

    This makes me so happy Tyro! Especially because I know that you are really into Casavirs character and understand him very well in your own way so the mod created by you will probably be a true mastepeace and for me feel like just a new part of SRM. The new looks of Cas and probably his new sounds will probably get some time getting used to because I just love Casavirs voice *-* but nontheless I’m sure I will enjoy the mod once its out 😀

      yes. i agree with you, I dont like his face too.

    Its nice you got the permision to release it into the world once its done ^^ i hate Casavir but will try your mod with the right Dragonborn girl. 🙂 keep up the good work!

    first: amazing! i really love casavir the most of all SRM characters and hoped the whole time he will come as flirtable follower! thank you very much to put such amount of work into him! until now he really looks very smart and your castle seems awesome!
    But there is one thing i wonder about: in the facebook link there was one question: “Are you a female Dragonborn who has ever wished you could romance Casavir?”
    I play a male character but hope to go with casavir on our future adventures. Please do not put a “only female” flag onto him!
    Until now there is no such flag on any of the SRM character and it makes me crazy to fear about one could appear at casavir.
