  • Just read about this dragon in Blackreach. Is there no quest associated with him? Is he just there to be killed?

    • He is one of the few dragons that survived the blades and he wrecked havoc on the dwemer living in Blackreach. However, no he doesn't have any associated quests and only serves the purpose of adding another soul to your collection. He is useful if you haven't cleared the city though.

    • an awesome dragon, but not everything in games or life has a purpose :)

        Loading editor
    • Maybe he was locked away b the dwemmer and only the Great War leaders could open his cage as they where the only ones able to shout

    • Vulthuryol is essentially an Easter egg, so to speak, as he can only be encountered if you just happened to use Unrelenting Force on the huge orb (which, let's admit it, not a lot of us would do if we hadn't read about it on the wiki). As any Easter egg in any game, its purpose is mainly to reward a player thinking out of the box with either tresure, or in this case, a semi-boss fight.

      As for his integration lore-wise, the fact he crawls instead of flying as well as being in Blackreach to begin with provides evidence enough that Vulthuryol probably stayed underground and, as has been noted on the page, his identity or whereabouts were possibly never discovered by dragon hunters.

      It does however beg the question whether or not Vulthuryol had been inhabiting Blackreach already when the Dwemer found it, or moved in after their demise. The latter seems improbable, as the timelines do not match exactly (unles the dragon evaded his enemies for several centuries until finally settling in Blackreach). However, were he present in the time the Dwemer walked the same cavern, you'd think there would be some mention of a dragon in their midst (at the very least how they managed to convince him not to eat them).


      P.S: "wreck" -> "wrecked," but "wreak" -> "wrought"

    • Vulthuryol probably crawls because it hasn't flown and used it's wings for so long that it's wings has just become completely obselete.

    • How Vulthuryol survived, what his purpose is as an Easter egg/extra mini-boss or how the dwemer didnt kill him is besides the point.


      HOW DID HE GET DOWN THERE IS THE REAL QUESTION!

      not sure. all i'm aware of is how he tormented the dwarves back in tthe day and stayed threre thus avoiding dragon apocolypse (note: i don't mean dragons causing the apocolypse, i mean the apocolypse....for dragons)

        Loading editor
    • Maybe the dwarves were fortunate enough to have found Vulthuryol while he was still in his egg and kept him around as a pet or more probable, a future weapon to be trained to fight their enemies, also explaining his inability to fly as their was never room for him/her to learn. maybe this is all garbage that doesn't fit timelines, or you will all call me out for some technicality, but an interesting story nonetheless eh?

      If they are big enough, shove Alduin down one, make sure all the lifts are destroyed or sealed, and BAM, no more World-Eater!

    • I always assumed since the Dwemer were so powerful and clever they were able to capture him and using unrelenting force on the orb woke him up.

    • It should be noted that he CAN fly, he just doesn't fight while flying. I fought him literally last night (summoned him completely by accident when I fus-roh-dah'd a Falmer). Saw him zooming around eating falmer until I jumped down and kicked his arse into the first era.

    • I got freaked out the first time i saw this guy, i summoned him completely on accident, Fus-Ro-Dah'd a Gloomlurker and Servant to their doom, and it JUST SO HAPPEN to hit the orb.

      ....I was level 10.

      .....I got wrecked.    But anyway, I saw him flying when i tried to hide, he just stays on the ground when he's fighting you.

    • How about this explanation for his apearance there? His den(im refering to the places from which Alduin revived the dragons) was above Blackreach, and as Alduin was reviving him, the den collapsed down into Blackreach, with him tumbling down aswell, and then the hole left after the collapse just caved in.

    • My friend told me about this and i honestly thought it was a joke.

      So today i ventured down to the depths of blackreach and its safe to say my level 15 sneak khajit didn't stand a chance, i let loose a dwarven centurion and sat in the middle of the lake guffawing and shooting my best arrows at this damn dragon. 

      After defeating it though i was really curious as to why the hell it was there, i mean cool easter egg but why didnt the team decide to add some back story!? it could have been more than super interesting and further revealed the dwarven cunning and intelect if it was them that managed to capture this huge freaking level 50 dragon!

      I was level 28 when I killed this dragon, not sure if its level 50 or a hyperbole is at work here. Gloomlurkers did murder me a few times, as well. used superior enchanted steel plate armor, glass mace and full fire shout. Just sayin.

    • Blackreach being one of the dwemers greatest cities needs a proper explanation as does it's dovha inhabitant. Blackreach was in the beginning a valley that was so deep the sunlight couldn't pierce it's depths thus giving it it's name. During the time before dwemer settled into it, the Dragon Wars were raging, this is during the merethic era. During this great war a lone dragon, Thuryol, The Overlord of Fire fled into the deep valley of Blackreach. He stayed hidden and safe, as the war raged above him. Akatosh seeing this cowardice cursed Thuryol taking away his strength that he may never be able to fly for prolonged periods of time again. When Thuryol realized this his roar echoed from Blackreach to the Throat of the World. his roar was so loud that the peaks bordering Blackreach tumbled and crashed together forming a roof over the valley. His haven had become his prison. He was trapped. In time the Dragon Wars ended and new life came to Skyrim. With this new life came the Dwemer renowned scholars and builders. They tunneled and built many wonders and one of these was Blackreach. They found the Dovah sitting there in the dark of the Great Cavern, perched atop  a small hill. At the sight of them he grew violent (for he was driven mad by the loneliness) and attacked them. The Dwemer however subdued him with their magics and sealed him away placing a Great Light to comfort him that would be the lock to his enchanted sleep. This lock was undisturbed until you Last of the Dovahkiin opened it...

      All dragon names are supposed to be comprised of three Words of Power, as a dragon's name being shouted will summon it, and all shouts are three words long. It would be a name, it would of the dragon langauge, just not for a dragon. I imagine he may have been calling him Thuryol as a shortened version of his full name. Or maybe he just thought it sounded cooler. But since there is no source, it is a fan-created backstory. One I enjoyed reading, actually.

Like Sheogorath said "Didn't see that coming, did you?". Yeah, you can argue the Tolkien ref, but that's just a cover for what he really is: the devs trolling.

    • The very first time, I summoned him by accident too. I was fighting the Falmer and those bandits you encounter in that mini fortress and I used Unrelenting Force at one in the balcony who was shooting at me. And then I heard Vulthyrol shouting. I was at level 20 I think and was running low on potions. So I got down and activated all the nearby Dwarwen centurions who started attacking him. While he was busy with them, I attacked him from behind with Dragonsbane, until at last I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin. :-p

    • Oh my god! Guys! I've got a great idea for a skyrim mod! Here it is:

      (Also if you have already killed Vulthuryol, he will reset)

      You go to blackreach do all that jazz, summon Vulthuryol (again, depending) then he comes to you saying: "Invader Below! Suffer the might of Vulthuryol! Defender of the long dead Dwemer! But in Dragon toung (Thuum) which would be: “Aadiik Atum! Aus fin uld se Vulthuryol! Bildiik se fin enariik dilon Dilfahliil!” (yes this has been copy-pasted from a previous idea I have had, oh god, now all the text is stuck like this! AHHHH! But anyway!) he would attack you, then after getting him to half health, he would cease battling you and say to you in english: "Last Dovahkiin, you are truely as strong as the Dovahkiin of my time! When I was not cursed to be forever trapped in this pit, I will grace you with Tinvaak, conversation, with me" then you would talk to him blah blah blah, then a legendary dragon by the name of Tiidkoro, or Time in Balance (Tiid = Time, Ko = In, Ro = Balance. <=== We all know that one) would fly over Vulthuryol, and talk to him in dragon-tounge, your character wouldn't be able to understand but the actual speech would be something like this in english:

      Tiidkoro: "Vulthuryol! Have you grown so weak you must now speak to meagre adventurers? It was bad enough when you saved those falmer servants and they became your followers!"

      Vulthuryol: "Tiidkoro! You insolent dovah! You dare adress the Dovahkiin as a mere adventurer? He would slay you a million times over then absorbe your soul and send it back to Akatosh! It is a shame to call you my brother!"

      Tiidkoro: "The dovahkiin? I... I did not know brother, but either way, you have done more wrong to the dovah race than right! If this really is the Dovahkiin, then send him to the death pits, I'll be waiting for him!"

      Tiidkoro would leave and you would talk to Vulthuryol again, you would ask what was that all about, then Vulthuryol would reply: "The insolent dovah is headstrong, he thinks he could beat you! But, he has a point, in your current state you could not battle Tiidkoro, not after the tremendous battle we just had! I will find my followers, the servants who I rescued from the Falmer" Then the screen would turn black and it will move you forward in time about 2 days, then when the screen turns to normal, you would see nords, imperials, argonians, orcs and more! they would either be in the raggedy clothing of falmer servants, dwarven armour, or falmer armour (if you don't have the dawnguard dlc then don't worry this would be a new type of falmer armour). Suddenly blackreach castle (or whatever it is) would suddenly look like a capital of a hold (and it would be! you would even be able to fast travel in and out of it), there would be make-shift shops and tents and houses (Also frequent falmer attacks) then you would have to go to one of the walls of the city-thingy to talk to Vulthuryol, and he will send you to kill Tiidkoro! Then after you did that there would be a multitude of other quests from people within the city and Vulthuryol himself. Some would be major quests such as: "OH NO THERE IS A DWARVEN AUTOMATON SIEGE ON THE CITY-THINGY!!!!! AHHHH HELP US!!" And there would be like 50 waves getting stronger. Then there would be little quests such as: "Some Falmer decided it would be funny to kidnap my daughter! Please kill them and bring back my daughter safely!" and blah blah blah stuff like that! I'm sure it would be a hit!

      I'm not really into modding though so could someone do this for me? and put my X-Box Live username on it? Prodigy_Gamer15

      my knowledge comes from years of reading books in-game and in real life in-game talking about the dragons and the two versions of the skyrim book and yes it IS supposed to be Kru-zii-krel and from the skyrim book it talks about how all dragons are supposed to have three dragon words in the name but in the human tongue it could mean one to three words in our language like for example oh-dah-viing means snow wing hunter or winged snow hunter I don't really know cause the book says it both ways but really there are a few dragons that have three words in dragon tongue but may have only one word or two words if you say the human tongue version ( my god my brain knows more than I thought )

Whether this was the original purpose of the orb or not is another question, but when I encountered him I specifically noticed that shouting at the orb made a sound ring out, and I saw Vulthuryol fly down from the cavern roof.

    • Concerning Kruziikrel, I have my own theory. His name might actually be Kru Zii Krel, or  "???" "Spirit" "Destroyer". It's not impossible that the term "Kru Zii" translates to the single word "ancient" (which, compared to most words, is kind of abstract, especially for dragons, to whom the passage of time has little meaning), kinda like how "Alok Dilon" (arise dead) is synonymous to "necromancy" in english.

    • You know that dwemer are really advanced and have advanced tech, maybe vuthuryol is a genetically engineered dragon, a clone, from dragon scales that the dwemer found. They intended to release the dragon but they gone extinct. So the dragon are trapped there until dragonborn found it. I know it's not lore friendly theory but who knows.

        Loading editor
    • Personally, I don't think that Vulthuryol got there by accident. In my mind, it doesn't make sense that a Dwemer made orb that reacts when you shout at it, would randomly summon a dragon.

      My theory is that the Dwemer captured and subdued Vulthuryol. Blackreach is a gigantic Aetherium mine, from which some of the most powerful artifacts were created. Most likely, they went to EXTREME measures to assure the mine's safety. Thus, they caught a dragon from the surface, placed him in some kind of slumber, for him to be awakened if he was needed to kill invaders in the mines. Or the dragonborn accidentally fires a shout at the orb.

      That, at least, is my theory.

    • I'm assuming that Vulthuryol had been summoned before, after being placed down there as a egg, but the dragon got out of control and killed a few Dwemer, so they put him away somewhere maybe to be summoned again as a sort of super weapon, but they vanished before that ended up happening, leaving the dragon to wait for the clanging of the orb to come again.

    • Dragons don't breed or really age so no eggs i'm afraid.

    • (Sorry for my english)

      I actually thing that Vulthuryol was a guardian for the dwemer mine. The Dwemer are very inteligent and they are maybe get a deal with the dragon. They placed that orb for calling him. (Not with Fus Ro Dah but with some other way to resonate the orb) It's jjust my theory but i think it's ok.

      Tiidkoro would leave and you would talk to Vulthuryol again, you would ask what was that all about, then Vulthuryol would reply: "The insolent dovah is headstrong, he thinks he could beat you! But, he has a point, in your current state you could not battle Tiidkoro, not after the tremendous battle we just had! I will find my followers, the servants who I rescued from the Falmer" Then the screen would turn black and it will move you forward in time about 2 days, then when the screen turns to normal, you would see nords, imperials, argonians, orcs and more! they would either be in the raggedy clothing of falmer servants, dwarven armour, or falmer armour (if you don't have the dawnguard dlc then don't worry this would be a new type of falmer armour). Suddenly blackreach castle (or whatever it is) would suddenly look like a capital of a hold (and it would be! you would even be able to fast travel in and out of it), there would be make-shift shops and tents and houses (Also frequent falmer attacks) then you would have to go to one of the walls of the city-thingy to talk to Vulthuryol, and he will send you to kill Tiidkoro! Then after you did that there would be a multitude of other quests from people within the city and Vulthuryol himself. Some would be major quests such as: "OH NO THERE IS A DWARVEN AUTOMATON SIEGE ON THE CITY-THINGY!!!!! AHHHH HELP US!!" And there would be like 50 waves getting stronger. Then there would be little quests such as: "Some Falmer decided it would be funny to kidnap my daughter! Please kill them and bring back my daughter safely!" and blah blah blah stuff like that! I'm sure it would be a hit!

      I'm not really into modding though so could someone do this for me? and put my X-Box Live username on it? Prodigy_Gamer15

      i like how no one replied to your (if i must say) rather great idea XD

      No, Akatosh created the dragons. Dragons in TES don't reproduce, they are immortal. They can even be brought back to life, unless their soul gets consumed by something else.

      Akatosh also created the Dragonborn, HE IS DOING IT FOR HIS AMUSEMENT!

    • I just read most of this and I don't think I say much about this but vulthuryol has cuffs on his wrists doesn't he? which would in turn mean the dwemer had indeed captured him, whether or not he was meant to be their next great war machine I do not know.

    • Again, anyone can comment here without register / login, fantastic. 

      I was wondering why blackreach is so huge. I entered there through Aftland something. Trying to explore the whole place thoroughly, I have now discovered two "great lifts" now, which are so far away from each other. 

      I shouted at the orb after reading the wiki about it. At that time I was at the highest spot in the cave - the Rumination Hall. The dragon did not see me and landed on the ground. Serana, who is following me around at that time, said, "Must have ran off." 

      I jumped down from the Rumination Hall because I have the "Better Jump" mod (I reached that high spot through normal path, though) and red indicator in the top bar appears again. I killed Volthuryol at the cost of drinking up all my potions of minor healings I had painstakingly gathered for a long time... (yes, I am a new player, stacking Damage and Health every time I level up)

      I also have a theory how the dragon ended up there. First, does anyone notice, that there is also only one Giant in Blackrach? Because my theory has something to do with that Giant, too. You see, the first time I arrived at Aftland (or Aft-something), I saw a Dragon fighting a Giant. I just stood and watched and did not meddle in their business. I wonder, that dragon and that giant must have become so bored. They are fighting each other, but they probably are firends. That is their way of finding something /anything to do...

      Ok, ok... I omitted something, because it might be too much to explain, too much for my English proficiency to contain... Now, the truth is, the above acount was the second time I encountered those two - the Dragon and the Giant. The first time was when I went to that Something-Pass to look for the Amulet of Akly-something. And I made a mistake... You see, I already had the "Better Jump" mod back then. So I jumped to mountain top and killed that particular dragon, who was fighting the giant (but who, I thought, were actually buddies). And what is the result? That dragon died, but No Soul Absorbed! (Alas, I did not remember whether that dragon has a particular name.)

      I smashed the dragon's head again, and as a result, the dragon's mouth opened bigger. It was scary... a pile of dragon "meat"... I mean, the dragon corpse, supposedly dead, but still looks alive... definitely more scary than the dead dragon bones. 

      So I used the console command "recycleactor" on the dead dragon, and used "better jump" to jump far, far away from there... 

      Now dear reader, you must have got the idea now, why the second time I saw the Dragon and Giant fighting, I stood by and did not meddle with their business... ...

      But oh dear, that was a "LONG way around" back to the theory about how Vulthuryol ended up in the cave... Yes, some might already have guessed it... remember also the lonely giant... Yes. They are the same pair of buddies... Or the same, in a parallel "continuum"... They were fighting fiercely, entangled together... In the heat of the fight, the Gaint gave a powerful stamp on the ground, and Oops!!! The ground below is hallow! because of the Dwemar's "nice job"!!!

      The Giant stamped a big hole on Blackreach's "ceiling" and fell straight in. The Dragon however, fell half way in and became stuck there for no-one-knows how many years. When you, the dragonborn, Fus-ro-dahed, the stuck dragon at the long last fell down, in a sense "freed" by you, Dohvarkiin... But you still fought each other to the death, because that is the only thing he, and you, knew doing... it was just meant to be... Not to mention, also, that you probably have already killed his Giant buddy by then...

    • It is also possible that both the Giant and the Dragon fell into the hollow (I have mistaken the word to "hallow" in the above post) when the Giant stamped a hole on the ground. 

      After falling in, they became so angry at the Dwemars for interrupting their fighting game (above the ground) this way, so they massacred all the Dwemars there. After that, the two of them stopping fight each other, and had the whole Blackreach cave for themselves, like, living happily thereafter... until you, the Dragonborn, disturbed the tranquility under there once again...

    • I have an idea at the original purpose of the Tonal Artefact in the centre of the ruin.

      It was a bell, simple as that, its tone would ring through blackreach and was meant to call meetings in the hall, judging by the names of the internal cells.

      As for why the dragon doesnt fly. That ones a simple answer as well, flight is not an easy task underground or in any room without wind and air currents. I have a pair of pet doves and when they take wing they have to put quite a lot more effort behind their flight and flap their little hearts out just to get from point A to point B.


      I always figured the dragon was trapped there, perhaps fallen there during the Dragon Wars and eventually driven mad from the seclusion. Dragons are more social creatures than we are, and too much seclusion can result in utter madness.

      When you rung the bell, he probably emerged from a cavern he was using as his home to see what the ruckus was about, spotted a joor shouting at the bell, and attacked you out of a maddened haze.

      Or, perhaps in that moment, the dragon had a moment of clarity in his clouded mind, saw that a dragonborn was walking the deep halls of his eternal prison, and decided that death in battle would be better than remaining here in this cold hell.

    • I think the Dwemer found his or her remains and brought it to Blackreach for studies, then Alduin summoned the dragons back to life and the reason he/she can't fly during combat for is because it can't multi-task.

      This theory supports how it got down there, why it got down there and why it doesn't fly during combat.

    • I only found this out by my swim coach told me so I looked it up and I knew it was in that hall with the huge dwemer "sun" even though I didn't have the time nor pationts to enter the place and go to the dwemer "sun" my self I just wanted the trascribed cube that I left and leave to finnish a quest still wanting to go there but didn't since I had beter things to do like getting the last shard of the three shard necolace but now I will test it fight it and win since my large amount of time playing TES V and having maroaaks hood and (fine) snow-elf aka anceint falmer or what ever it is armor which can only be obtained in the dawngaurd dlc when you get the sun arrow bow.

      also this should be easy to find just use the bowl glitch to make a quick short cut into the elevator and into the ruins I go for more blood on the dawnbreaker or the anti-dragon sword or what ever blade, axe, hammer, or mace I wield and lucky me I'm not a vampire any more so the dawnbreaker won't deal damige to me with the exsplotion it does to the undead.
