Yagrum Bagarn is a resident of the Corprusarium and the last known living Dwemer. He is infected with Corprus, and can only move around with the help of a modified Centurion Spider's lower half. He is a good friend of Divayth Fyr, a powerful and ancient mage who oversees the Corprusarium and Tel Fyr. Yagrum is also the author of Tamrielic Lore.
History[edit | edit source]
During the First Era, Yagrum Bagarn was a Master Crafter working for the Dwemer Chief Tonal Architect Kagrenac. When the Numidium was activated in 1E 700, it caused the Disappearance of the Dwemer. Bagarn was in an undescribed Outer Realm at the time and was not affected.
He later returned to Nirn and went to Vvardenfell. At some point, he contracted Corprus, which caused his body to deform and bloat. He then went under the care of Divayth Fyr. He still researches about what happened to his race, although so far without success. He has recorded his work in the hope that it may be of some benefit to other Tamrielic races.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
Later, if necessary, he can activate the Wraithguard if the Nerevarine has a reputation of 20 and Bagarn has a disposition of 90, or just a reputation of 30, or the documents "Dagoth Ur's Plans" and "The Plan to Defeat Dagoth Ur" (which are in the same room as Vivec—thus easier to obtain than the non-working Wraithguard). He will also need Kagrenac's Planbook and Kagrenac's Journals, since he is not an expert on the Wraithguard's use (although he helped create it). Once the requirements are fulfilled, the Nerevarine will need to equip the Wraithguard (and will be hit for 201–225 damage the first time it is equipped).
He is one of only two people in Vvardenfell who can readily translate Aldmeris (the other being Baladas Demnevanni). After translating the books The Egg of Time and Divine Metaphysics, Bagarn says that he would ordinarily explain in detail the theories presented in the books, but believes that Kagrenac's ideas must die as their master has.
Dialogue[edit | edit source]
|Show: Corprus Cure|
"You're here for the Dwemer boots. Tell my gracious Keeper that I have done what I could. Only a Dwemer magecrafter could have done so much. But only idiots could have created these boots. It shames my race that we must be judged by the works of such lack-wit blunderers."
After defeating Dagoth Ur:
Tales of your exploits "A remarkable story. A pity to have to destroy Kagrenac's enchantments on the Heart. It would have been interesting to study them."
|Show: Mystery of the Dwarves|
"So. It's you again. What brings you to visit Yagrum Bagarn, Master Crafter, and Last Living Dwarf?"
|Show: Yagrum Bagarn and Wraithguard|
Kagrenac's Journals "Kagrenac recorded every step in his manufacture and testing of enchanted items. His journals will record any modifications or enhancements made to his original designs. I don't know where his journals might be. I am fairly sure they haven't been discovered, or Divayth Fyr would have heard, and would have told me. That suggests they remain to be discovered in some Dwemer ruin here on Vvardenfell."
Cut dialogue[edit | edit source]
Bagarn has three lines of recorded voice dialogue, none of which made it into the game. They can be found with the Construction Set, and are listed as follows:
|"A visitor? What brings you to visit Yagrum Bagarn, master crafter, and last living Dwarf?"|
|"Now, if I could just figure a scheme of classifying manifolds for tri-ply connected surfaces or even MORE complex surfaces..."|

- Killing Bagarn will cause Divayth Fyr to become hostile permanently.
- Just in front of Yagrum Bagarn is a chest which contains the powerful Daedric artifact Volendrung.
