"Orc named Mazoga say she's a knight. I doubt it. The Count wants it looked into. Why don't you talk to him. The Count appears for audiences in the County Hall near the throne weekdays between 8 AM and 4 PM."

Mazoga the Orc is a quest in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This quest starts when the Hero talks to Count Marius Caro in Castle Leyawiin. He wants to know why Mazoga the Orc will not leave his hall.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Go to Mazoga and speak to her, she is extremely rude but will ask to find Weebam-Na. His house is in town across from the For Sale house. He will not help until he is persuaded, however.

Weebam-Na and Mazoga

Follow Weebam-Na back to Mazoga and listen to them talk. She will be rude to him and demand that he take her to Fisherman's Rock, a camp north of Leyawiin. Weebam-Na will refuse, but talk to Mazoga and she will demand that she be taken there.

Head to Fisherman's Rock north of Leyawiin and across the Lower Niben River. She will follow but will not swim, so it is a good idea to lead her around the southern end of the river. Mazoga confronts one of the bandits, Mogens Wind-Shifter, and reveals that she is seeking revenge on him for killing a friend when she was a bandit.

Fight the bandits with Mazoga

Fight the four bandits, making sure to keep Mazoga alive, and return to the Count to complete the quest. After fighting the bandits and talking to Mazoga, she calls the Hero an idiot for killing them, yet she will engage in conflict herself if the player does not. If the player tells her they did not know about the Knights' etiquette, she will just agree and blame herself. It is important, if tedious, to walk Mazoga all the way back to the castle. With her low health after the bandit fight, she will tend to get killed by roving enemies on the way. It also helps to have a convalescence spell to use on her after the fight. An alternative and simpler way of escorting Mazoga is fast travelling back to Leyawiin.

If Mazoga dies, the Count will hold the Hero responsible, and not give the next quest. This is not hinted at anywhere in the game, but she needs to live - protect her at all costs. However, she may die during the next quest with no serious repercussions.

Journal[edit | edit source]

Journal Entry
  • Update: Upon receiving the quest:

It seems that Count Marius Caro is concerned about an Orc named Mazoga at Castle Leyawiin. This Orc claims she is a knight. Perhaps Marius Caro would welcome my aid in finding out more about her.

  • Update: After talking to Marius Caro:

An Orc in the Leyawiin Castle County Hall claims to be a knight. Marius Caro, Count Leyawiin, asked me to find out why she is there, and to report back to him.

  • Update: After speaking to Mazoga:

An orc named Mazoga sent me to find Weebam-Na and tell him to meet Mazoga in the County Hall of Castle Leyawiin.

  • Update: After speaking to Weebam-Na:

I spoke to Weebam-Na and gave him Mazoga's message. Weebam-Na doesn't want to cooperate. Perhaps I can persuade him to change his mind.

  • Update: After persuading Weebam-Na to talk to Mazoga:

I delivered Mazoga's message, and Weebam-Na agreed to go talk to Mazoga. Maybe I should tag along and find out what this is all about.

  • Update: After Weebam-Na speaks to Mazoga:

Weebam-Na spoke with Mazoga. Perhaps now Mazoga will tell me what's going on.

  • Update: After speaking to Mazoga:

I agreed to lead Mazoga to Fisherman's Rock. Fisherman's Rock is north of Leyawiin, about six hours walk, on a point of land on the eastern shore of the Niben. At Fisherman's Rock, Mazoga wants to talk to someone named Mogens Wind-shifter. She made it clear I was not to interfere before she talked to him.

  • Update: After Mazoga speaks to Mogens Wind-Shifter:

Mazoga spoke to Mogens Wind-Shifter, and then they started to fight. Mogens has his gang with him so Mazoga needs some help.

  • Update: After the bandits are killed:

At Fisherman's Rock, Mazoga got into a fight with four bandits. Now all four bandits are dead. Now I must report to Marius Caro.

  • Update: After speaking to Mazoga:

Mazoga told me she attacked the bandits to avenge the murder of her friend, Ra'vindra. She invited me to take what I wish from the dead... her vengeance is her reward.

  • Update: After returning to Marius Caro

Count Marius Caro thanked me for my services to County Leyawiin, and suggested that he might make Mazoga and I knights-errant as reward for our noble deeds.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If the Dark Brotherhood quests are completed, then one of the murderers from the sanctuary can help defend her and dispatch enemies quicker.
  • It is advised to complete both of Mazoga's quests before starting Sanguine's quest. After casting Stark Reality on the Countess and her guests, Mazoga will attack the guards as they pursue the Hero. Even if they leave Leyawiin and complete Sanguine's quest, upon re-entering Leyawiin Castle, the guards will attack Mazoga and kill her, automatically failing her two quests.
  • If one has also chosen to do the Nocturnal's Eye quest, avoid killing Weebam-Na, or one will have a quest marker to his empty house.
