Template:SkyrimNPCs Ghorbash the Iron Hand is an Orsimer living in Dushnikh Yal, and is the brother of Chief Burguk.

Background

Ghorbash served in the Imperial Legion and was known as Ghorbash Gro-Dushnikh. He left the stronghold to go adventuring in his earlier days, thus being exiled. Once he returned to Dushnikh Yal, Burguk was the new leader, and the Chief allowed him to reclaim his spot in the stronghold. Although Ghorbash states his desire to adventure again, he is reluctant to leave, for fear of dishonoring his place the chief had made for him. He can, however, be convinced via persuasion, paying him, or beating him in a brawl. Once he is convinced to take up adventuring again, he can be a follower, or speaking to him again when wearing an Amulet of Mara opens up Ghorbash as a Marriage candidate:

"That amulet. I've seen the Nords wear them when they're looking to marry. With your strength, you should have no trouble."

Interested in me, are you? "You're strong. Clever. I'd be proud to face the challenges of life with you, if you feel the same."

I do. My hand is yours. "And mine is yours."
I don't. Sorry. "If that's your wish."

Follower

By default, he wears Steel Armor. Despite wearing Heavy Armor, his highest skills are in Light Armor and Archery, with One-Handed and Block being slightly lower level than the two. His skills make him an effective archer. Any combination of a single-handed weapons and shields also suits him. In contrast with followers like Vilkas and Stenvar, Ghorbash is less effective with Heavy Armor and Two-Handed weaponry. As an ex-legionnaire, Ghorbash refuses to equip Stormcloak Armor.

As with many followers, Ghorbash resists arrest if the Dragonborn chooses that option after acquiring a bounty, although he cannot be commanded to steal items from containers, nor will he attack innocent people when commanded. Ghorbash can also join the Blades.

Attacking him enough times will result in the Dragonborn gaining a bounty from the Tribal Orcs.
