"Orc poisons are to be feared, if you wish to trade."

Murbul is an Orsimer destruction mage residing in the stronghold of Dushnikh Yal, where she serves as the community's wise woman.


She is the mother of Chief Burguk, and is thus the stronghold's acting wise woman. Being the oldest and most knowledgeable individual in the community, many come to her seeking advice and guidance, so that they can remain true to the Code of Malacath. She serves as a spiritual leader, performing ceremonies in which she reads the entrails of animals.

Being the local alchemist, she will sell some of her potions and ingredients. Her workshop is near Burguk's Longhouse, and contains an alchemy lab with some ingredients and potions, as well as a tanning rack.


"I have an old cure for Rockjoint. Common in little Orc children."

Tell me more about your people. "We have lived in Skyrim since before the Nords came. Our way is simple, all work to make the tribe strong. Only the bravest are allowed to lead, and to marry. A great chief is able to attract many wives and raise bold children. Wise women like myself are mothers of chieftains. We guide the tribe and advice our kin on what is most pleasing to Malacath."
Who is Malacath? "He is our creator and master. The Daedric Lord of the Sworn Oath and the Bloody Curse. Malacath teaches us to honor all words with action. To demand blood from your enemies and strength from your allies. He watches over all Orcs as his children. A truth those who leave the stronghold are quick to forget."



Burguk: "Tell me, mother, does Malacath favor our stronghold?"
Murbul: "He is pleased. Ours is the strongest tribe in all the Reach."
