For other uses, see Zumog Phoom.

Zumog Phoom is a powerful Orsimer necromancer serving under Euraxia Tharn.[1] Initially, he acts as Euraxia's advisor and strategist, and provides her with large amounts of reinforcements in the form of necromancers and undead soldiers. However, his main aim is to put Cadwell the Betrayer back together and gain favor with the dragons. He and his necromancers abandon Euraxia shortly before her death.[2]


A Rage of DragonsEdit

Zumog's projection orders Gravestalker Gemmia in Sleepy Senche Mine to shore up the army of the dead before disappearing.

The Usurper QueenEdit

Zumog meets the Vestige in Rimmen Palace before meeting with Euraxia. He is accompanied by Cadwell the Betrayer's floating head.

He later appears in Desert Wind Cavern to capture Lieutenant Lepida's shade. He consumes her soul, gaining the secret of the adepts in the process.

The Battle for RiverholdEdit

Zumog briefly appears to turn Euraxian soldiers in Riverhold into undead, and casts a spell to continue to create more undead. This requires the Vestige and Zamarak to activate the blessed Moon Pillars to prevent the undead from rising and overrunning the city.

Two QueensEdit

Zumog traps the Vestige in the Chapel of the Guiding Moons of Rimmen Palace. Later, they are found performing a ritual on the soul shriven Cadwell to restore the Betrayer.

Cadwell the BetrayerEdit

Zumog Phoom is fought in his lair in the Sepulcher of Mischance near The Stiches. He lures the soul shriven Cadwell here, and works to reform the Betrayer using a necromantic ritual.

When the Vestige reaches his lair, he attacks and summons multiple undead throughout the fight, including a dragon skeleton. He transforms himself into a Bone Colossus later in the fight, but is ultimately defeated. However, he succeeds in restoring the Betrayer.
