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."|
|"Most people just call me the Gray Prince. It's kind of silly, I know, but the people of Cyrodiil need heroes. I'm more than happy to oblige. "|
|"Ah, so you're an Arena combatant! It's always good to meet a fellow warrior, especially one who isn't here just to kill the Grand Champion! Ha ha ha!"|
|"I know who you are, of course, and it's easy to guess why you're here. You wish to challenge me for my title of Grand Champion, is that it?"|
|"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?"|
|"Hail, friend! Good to see you again. So tell me, what brings you back to the Imperial City?"|
|"Ah, so you've returned. Come at last to challenge me for my Grand Champion title?"|
|"My mother died recently. Before she passed, she gave me this key, and told me it would "unlock the truth," at the place of my birth, Crowhaven."|
|"Crowhaven is a ruined fort far to the west of here. I'd go myself, but my training regiment doesn't allow for the luxury of such an excursion."|
|"My friend, you must travel to Crowhaven and use the key to unlock whatever it is that holds the proof of my birthright!"|
|"Find this proof and return it to me, and I'll share with you some of my finest combat techniques. Trust me, you can't learn these moves in a book!"|
|"You've returned! So, have you been to Crowhaven? Have you... Oh, I see you have not yet recovered any proof of my birth..."|
|"Please, friend. Make haste! This waiting about is torture! I know in my heart who I am, but with evidence I can prove my claim to all of Tamriel!"|
|"But wait, I'm sorry. I'm being selfish. You're a Champion, and have the right to challenge me for my Grand Champion title. Is that your wish?"|
|"You've returned! So, have you been to Crowhaven? Have you... What's this? The Journal of Lord Lovidicus? My friend, you've done it!"|
|"This is wonderful news! The words of the Lord Lovidicus himself! Perfect!"|
|"Ah, but I believe I owe you something, eh? Here, let me show you these moves. Step like this... Now strike.... All right, now parry... That's it!"|
|"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... "|
|"The... the journal... my father's journal.... It says I'm... I'm part vampire! I thought my father was a nobleman, not some blood-sucking monster!"|
|"Oh, but I see. You're a Champion... You want my Grand Champion title, is that it? Please, challenge me. In the Arena I can end my misery..."|
|"Are you... Are you ready to fight? Go talk to Ysabel, let her know. Then we'll, um... You know, we'll meet in the Arena. And it will all be over..."|
|"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!"|
|"May your blade always strike true!"|
|"What are you waiting for? Kill me!"|
|"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. "|
- 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.
