|Quest NPC||One Piercing Note|
|Location||Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede|
|Examine|| He's playing a mandolin.|
Inside the Abbey: Valerio the troubadour.
He knew Sister Anna before she joined the order, and came to the abbey because Sister Elena, with whom he was having an affair, told him of Anna's death. The player discovers love letters between Sister Elena and Valerio shortly after Sister Elena herself was killed by The Killer. He witnessed the murder of Sister Catherina, which caused Abbess Benita to bring him into the investigation, as he was one of only two people she knew wasn't the Killer.
Valerio needs to be spoken with to solve the anagram clue "OR A VILE". He challenges the player with a scroll that says How many windows look out into the Citharede Abbey courtyard? that can be solved by answering 17. The option Listen-to is the only way to get him to talk about the clue, instead of Talk-to.
- He is voiced by the British actor Richard Laing.
