"I serve my chief and my brothers by working in the mines. It's the only place fit for an aging Orc."


Oglub is an Orsimer warrior who works at the Dushnikh Mine, within stronghold of Dushnikh Yal.


Oglub is the older brother of Ghorbash the Iron Hand, but has outgrown his chance to become chief of the stronghold. Instead, he works in the Dushnikh Mine, spending his entire time there while never sleeping.



Oglub: "You could challenge Burguk, my brother. Yours is the stronger swordarm."
Ghorbash: "Serving in the Legion taught me to respect leadership. The stronghold needs Burguk."

Ghorbash: "It is a fine day to work the mines."
Oglub: "This metal will serve the forge well, my brother."

Note: the preceding two conversations do not occur in-game because the two characters never meet, leaving the recorded dialogue unused.[1]


  • "Sorry, outlander, but this old Orc cannot help you. Burguk is the chief here."
  • "I don't know how Ghorbash has so much spirit. He should act his age."


  • If the Dragonborn steals from the mine, he may send hired thugs after them.
  • If the Dragonborn kills Arob, one of the chief's wives, but does not kill Oglub, he may send hired thugs after them.
