Murdock is the Mayor of Redcliffe Village and is in charge of the militia for its defense against the undead.
Murdock asks The Warden to do two things to prepare for the upcoming battle:
Murdock will also guide you towards Ser Perth after you have finished his quests. The player may also ask the soldier's state or morale.
After defending Redcliffe succefully, the elder mother says a few words for fallen Murdock, this might depend if he dies in the battle or how well you fared in it. Unconfirmed.
If The Warden chooses not to defend Redcliffe, Murdock will appear later within the castle as a re-animated corpse.
He is voiced by Robin Sachs.
