Template:SkyrimNPCs Chief Burguk is an Orsimer and the chief of Dushnikh Yal, an Orc Stronghold located south-east of Markarth, and brother to Ghorbash the Iron Hand, a potential follower.


Burguk became the leader his tribe after killing his father in one-on-one combat, who had become too old and weak to rule. Burguk states that one day his own son will challenge and defeat him when the time comes. This custom  ensures that the orcs' leaders are always strong and worthy.

As Chief, Burguk is the only Orc in Dushnikh Yal and the nearby mine who may keep more than one wife and father children with multiple women. He is the most respected member of the Orc community.

He has three children, each fathered with a different wife: Umurn, the blacksmith's apprentice; Nagrub, Umum's brother; and Lash, Burguk's only daughter.

His three wives are Shel (his favorite), Arob the Hunts-wife, and Gharol the Forge-wife.


If the Dragonborn isn't an Orsimer, retrieving The Forgemaster's Fingers for the stronghold will prompt Chief Burguk to name him or her blood-kin of the Orcs and offer Master-level training in One-Handed weapons.

If the Dragonborn asks Burguk for work, he will challenge them to a brawl with a bet of 100 Gold. Whoever wins will receive 200 gold.


  •  PC   360   PS3   When brawling with him, he may run flee to a different part of the camp out of sight. If the Dragonborn can catch up to him it will be a normal fight and he will use weapons. No one else will interfere and if not careful he will be killed during the brawl. If killed, the other orcs will act as if they do not know how he was killed, no bounty or hostility will be acquired.
  •  PC   360   PS3   Dialog option to train in One-Handed may disappear.
  •  PC   360   PS3   If wearing the Ebony Mail during the brawl with him, the whole tribe will become hostile towards the Dragonborn.
