Gursel is a character featured in Dying Light.


Events of Dying Light

He is a fisherman and the de facto leader of the survivors residing within the Fishermen's Village in the slums of Harran. He lives above the market with his wife, Ayla.

During the main story quest Pact With Rais, Kyle Crane is sent to the village to collect a tribute for criminal warlord Kadir "Rais" Suleiman. Crane finds the village compromised and swarming with infected, and so clears the village and secures the gate.

Later, following the side-quest Gas Mask Man, Crane learns Gursel is responsible for sabotaging the gate in order to justify paying Rais for protection. He framed Shakur so as to avoid suspicion. However, Crane speaks with Gursel and decides not to reveal this information.

Sometime after completion of the side quest Gas Mask Man, Gursel will stick a help wanted notice on the village's notice board, requesting 5 units of Midnight Bride to enable his people to catch fish in larger quantities more easily. This is a relatively short fetch and return quest, although locating and obtaining the plants will need to be done at night or within 30 minutes to and from night-time.



  • Though never explained, Gursel's wife refers to him as "Firkin".
