Nan, from The Ultima 6 Project
Location: Britain

Nan is a bard and instructor at the Conservatory in Britain in Ultima VI.


Nan worked alongside her husband Kenneth, teaching the youth of Britain the arts of music and performance. She was immensely proud of their most promising pupil, Ariana, remarking how she had been given the Rune of Compassion. The disturbed lady suffered from vivid hallucinations, seeing spiders everywhere she looked. She even had difficulty playing her lute because she saw spiders crawl out of the instrument every time she picked it up. In hopes of reducing the young woman's fears, Iolo had given her a pair of gloves for her birthday, believing this added protection might provide her with the confidence to play.[1]

Tholden directed the Avatar to the bards of the Hall of Bards as he had entrusted the mantra and rune to them.[2] Asked about the mantra she told the Avatar it was 'Mu'.

The Ultima 6 Project[edit]

This is an Ultima 6 Project-related NPC article or section. The information within may not apply to Ultima VI or other Ultima games.

In The Ultima 6 Project, Nan had heard of a large cavern filled with giant spiders, the dreaded Spider Cave. Terrified of such a location, Iolo assured her there were no such caves near Britain. Yet, the party discovered the Spider Cave near Empath Abbey. If the Avatar killed the huge Spider Queen, Nan could sleep a little better after being told that the beast no longer existed.
