King Gothryd was the King of Daggerfall. His father, Lysandus of Daggerfall, was killed at the end of the War for Betony. His wife is Aubk'i, former princess of Sentinel. His mother is Mynisera and his grandmother is Nulfaga.
During the War for Betony, right after the death of Lysandus, he took over command of the Daggerfall army. He managed to slay the King of Sentinel, Camaron of Sentinel, forcing the army of Sentinel to retreat and subsequently surrender. After some negotiation, he asked for the hand of Aubk'i in marriage, obviously a hostage of war.
King Gothryd is one of the wielders of the Numidium. He was one of the seven retrievers of the Totem of Tiber Septim, a tool for controlling the Dwemeri construct. Originally there was only one Totem, but a strange time warping effect known as the Warp in the West made all seven parties in the Iliac Bay region receive the Totem.
Gothryd can be handed over Lord Woodborne's Private Journal VII. Doing so, however, does not result in quest completion, and grants no rewards. As Gothryd happens to be an ally to Lord Woodborne, he will instead order his minions to kill the Hero, if the journal is delivered to him.
Gothryd is one of the potential buyers for the Totem of Tiber Septim. He will reward the player with 10,000 gold if the Totem is brought to him directly, instead of given to his mercenaries.
- Lysandus' Revenge
"You were completely correct to bring this to me. Otherwise it might have gotten out where it could do Lord Woodborne damage. Guards! Kill this!"
- Totem, Totem, Who Gets the Totem?
"I see you have come to your senses. I should have you slain, but I have more honor than that. Instead I shall reward you. Here take 10000 gold pieces for your turnabout loyalty. Deliver the Mantella to me, and my trust in you will be once again restored."
