"When the Order crumbled, I set out on my own. After years of searching, I found the Shield and brought it to Fort Bulwark for safe keeping."
―Sir Henrik[src]

Sir Henrik was a member of the old Knights of the Nine. He was one of the members of the knights, most had either left for the War of Red Diamond, or had left what they saw was a dying order. While many of the relics where taken into war, Henrik found the Shield of the Crusader and decided it was best to guard the shield and make sure it never entered the wrong hands.

With the help of some of his most trusted friends, he set off to Fort Bulwark with the plan on turning it into a safe haven for the Shield. Henrik and his comrades built many traps and puzzles to slow down and kill any invaders. However, Henrik died during a raid and never got to see the his work completed.

His spirit and first encountered by the Hero in the under-croft of the Priory of the Nine, guarding the Cuirass of the Crusader along with the rest of the great knights of his time. Henrik will tell the hero how to find the fort but will also warn him that the fort was made to defend the Shield for all time and will still contain many traps.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Show: Priory of the Nine
Inside the Priory of the Nine:

"If you are true to the teachings of Julianos, it may be possible for you to find the Shield of the Crusader."

What do you mean? "When the Order crumbled, I set out on my own. After years of searching, I found the Shield and brought it to Fort Bulwark for safe keeping. With the help of a few trusted friends, I began work to keep the Shield safe for all eternity. I never saw my work finished. I died defending the fort from those who would take and misuse the Shield. I never saw our work finished; I trust that the others carried on without me."
Not now. "As you wish."
Shield of the Crusader "I can tell you what I know. It is not everything, but it is perhaps enough."

"Walk with the Nine, Sir Knight."

If approached again:

"How may I serve you, Commander?"

Fort Bulwark "It lies in the southeast of Cyrodiil, near the Black Marsh border. If all went according to plan, it should be very well guarded now. Believe in yourself, and use your knowledge wisely. You will pass through unharmed, and the Shield will be yours."
Fort Bulwark "Look to the southeast of Cyrodiil to find it. I cannot say for certain what is inside, but be prepared for anything."
Julianos "History and knowledge are his domain. He is the God of Wisdom and Logic. He teaches us: "Know the truth. Observe the law. When in doubt, seek wisdom from the wise.""
Knights of the Nine "Though we went our seperate ways when the Order fell, we all served the Nine in our hearts. All but one..."
Knights of the Nine (During the quest "Umaril the Unfeathered") "We are all reunited once more. You have done what we once thought impossible."
Mace of Zenithar "Sir Ralvas requested for the Mace after Sir Berich's betrayal. He believed that with the Mace, he would be able to bring the rest of us together. He stayed at the Chapel of Leyawiin for months, attempting the test over and over. He hardly ate. Hardly slept. In the end, he failed. He left the chapel broken and beaten. Sir Amiel found his body and laid him to rest here at the Priory."
Shield of the Crusader "The Shield is safeguarded within Fort Bulwark. It is protected, and care must be taken when attempting to find it."

"Go with Virtue."
