Voryn Dagoth, the powerful Chimer lord and Lord High Councilor of House Dagoth, is the major antagonist in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Voryn Dagoth is a member of the famous Dagoth family. We don’t know how he became the Lord High Chancellor of the house and a retainer of Indoril Nerevar, and just a few stories of his early life have remained.
Following the defeat of the Nords at Red Mountain, Nerevar and Dumac, the Dwemer ruler of Morrowind, formed a new alliance.
The First Council was abolished and the Second Council was created after Voryn realized Kagrenac had stolen Lorkhan’s Heart of Lorkhan and the Dwemer planned to utilize its power to construct a huge machine known as the Numidium to fight the Chimer.It was confirmed by the Daedric Prince Azura, and Nerevar initiated a campaign against the Dwemer, which resulted in their annihilation on Red Mountain.
A famous Dagoth ur dialogue is “What a fool you are. I’m a god, how can you kill a god? What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naive? There is no escape. No recall or intervention can work in this place. Come, lay down your weapons, it is not too late for my mercy.” Dagoth ur mask is there because he is a monster underneath. Dagoth ur without a mask is a terrifying sight.
Dagoth ur endgame was Uriel Septim VII dispatched a prisoner matching the Nerevarine’s description to Vvardenfell in 3E 427 to investigate reports of unrest. They received Wraithguard, got the other Kagrenac items, and encountered Dagoth Ur in Red Mountain when it was revealed in the Cavern of the Incarnate that this was Nerevar resurrected.
They used the instruments to disconnect the Heart of Lorkhan from the mortal realm, killing Dagoth Ur and his Ash Vampire siblings, and destroying Akulakhan. This terminated the Blight and Corpus plagues, as well as the danger of House Dagoth. This move also killed the Tribunal.
“Come. Bring Wraithguard to the Heart Chamber. Together let us free the cursed false gods.”
“Welcome, Nerevar. Together we shall speak for the Law and the Land, and shall drive the mongrel dogs of the Empire from Morrowind.”
Throughout the gameplay, dagoth ur says some disturbing and outrageous things. Some of those are mentioned below as quotes.
Dagoth Ur welcomes you, Nerevar, my old friend. But to this place where destiny is made. Why have you come unprepared?”
“Hah-hah-hah, did you get a false copy of sunder? Shame on you sweet nerevar, hah-hah-hah.
Whenever you go to visit the great evil, you will be greeted with these words. The phrase that has been said differs based on the scenario that has been presented.
“Strange. This outcome I did not foresee. That you would come unprepared.”
“Until I see you better prepared, we have nothing to discuss.”
Dagoth ur employs these scary lines to divert your attention away from the battlefield. All these are generated by the game engine on a random basis.
“Omnipotent. Omniscient. Sovereign.
Immutable. How sweet it is to be a god!”
A variety of dagoth ur memes have sprung up as a result of the usage of the quotations above and the alteration of the context of the situation. These memes have garnered substantial popularity. What happened to Dagoth Ur as an endgame or his last stand. Sunder, Keening, and Wraithguard are three magical items left behind by the Dwemer’s Tonal Architect, Kagnerac, following the Dwemer’s defeat.
The power of the Heart of Lorkhan was harnessed via the usage of these three relics. During the Tribunal disagreement, Nerevar left these instruments with Voryn. When Nerevar returns, Voryn has used the instruments to harness the Heart’s power for himself. Voryn, as Dagoth Ur, waged war against Nerevar and the Tribunal, killing Nerevar and vanishing Dagoth Ur.
