Agronak knows his father was a noble by the name of Lord Lovidicus, but has no proof of this, and he is too busy training to take time off to find it. He wants to prove that a Orc can be noble in both blood and deed, so is looking for help in proving his lineage.
Personality and traitsEdit
Agronak asks the Hero to discover the secret of his noble parentage; to do so, the Hero is sent to Crowhaven and seek proof needed to show that he comes from noble birth. He will provide the key that his mother gave him, who told him it would help unlock the truth of his past.
At Crowhaven, the Hero finds a ruined fortress that looks long deserted. In the back is a locked door with Lord Lovidicus trapped behind it. After fighting Lovidicus it is discovered in his journal that he was a vampire when he conceived his child, and when he told Agronak's mother she locked him in his chambers and fled to the Imperial City.
After learning the truth, Agronak becomes distraught to learn his father was a "spawn of evil" and feels like he himself carries the filth.
If the quest is completed before challenging him to become Grand Champion, he will stand there and let the Hero kill him, saying that he wants to die instead of living knowing that he "is something filthy". The kill will count as murder. The Dark Brotherhood will contact the Hero as a result, but there will not be a bounty on the Hero's head, nor will the guards pursue the Hero.
- Upon discovering the truth of his father, the hero will be rewarded:
- Upon defeating the Gray Prince, loot the following items from him:
- "Hail, friend. I don't believe I've ever seen you down here in the Bloodworks before. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Agronak gro-Malog." —When first met.
- "Hail, friend! Good to see you again. I hope the Arena has been as good to you as it's been to me. What brings you back to the Imperial City?"
- "Yes, it's what everyone calls me. I guess I'm partly to blame. I've never made it a secret that I'm actually only half Orc. I am a Lord's son, yet I've been denied the noble privilege to which I am entitled. So I have become the Gray Prince, noble in my own right. Still... If I could prove who I really am, and show the world that an Orc can be noble in blood as well as deed... Maybe... Yes! You could help me!"-When asked about his title.
- "I'm the reigning Grand Champion of the Arena, you see. Once you become a Champion, you'll need to challenge me for my title. It's a fight to the death, so if you progress that far and want a shot at the Grand Championship, you'll have to try and kill me."-When asked about his rank.
- You don't? Oh! Well good! Very good indeed! Maybe after you've helped me out, eh? So please, make haste to Crowhaven! This waiting is unbearable!"
- "You don't? Oh... Well, all right. I'm sorry, it's just that I fully expected a challenge! It is your right. If you change your mind, I'll be ready."
- "You don't? Oh... Well I can only hope you'll change your mind. In the Arena... Yes, in the Arena anything could happen. Anything..."
- "Oh! Oh, well... All right then. I was hoping you'd complete your journey to Crowhaven first, but it is your right to challenge me."-If challenged after accepting, but before completing "Origin of the Gray Prince".
- As I expected. I accept your challenge! Speak to Ysabel and let her know when you're ready, and I shall make for the Arena. Shinji be with us both!"-If challenged without accepting his quest
- "Yes. Yes... I accept your challenge. Go... Go speak with Ysabel. Tell her you're ready. Then we'll... We'll meet in the Arena. Yes, that'll do..."-If challenged after completing his quest.
- "Now let me see what this Journal says! Hmm... Interesting... But... I... I... Wait... Can this be? But... By Shinji, I'm the son of a vampire! I'm no "Gray Prince!" I'm the spawn of evil! I thought my father was a nobleman, not some blood-sucking monster! I... I can't... All a lie! A lie..."-After discovering his "royal" background.
- "Please, just kill me! Can't you see? It's what I want! I can't live like this, knowing I'm something filthy, something evil! Kill me!"-In the arena after finding out the truth.
- Even though Agronak is the Grand Champion of the Arena, he is only level 10.
- The book Racial Phylogeny states that it is unknown if Orcs can breed with races of Men, although this can be seen as evidence that the races are interfertile.
