Chief Bazrag gro-Fharun, later known as King Bazrag at the end of the Orsinium main quest, is the Orcish chief of Clan Fharun, residing in Fharun Stronghold. He is a devout worshipper of Malacath, and was once a close friend of King Kurog.[source?]
In his youth, Bazrag was known as "Bazrag the Butcher"[source?], and was a close friend of Kurog gro-Bagrakh. He accompanied him, Bumnog, and Bizra during their travels throughout Tamriel.[source?] They joined a mercenary group known as Gaspard's Stalkers sometime prior to 2E 566.[source?] Bazrag later became the chief of Clan Fharun and married Ulsha.
While on patrol, Bazrog and his soldiers saw a supply caravan being ambushed by the Winterborn. However, before they could reach the wagons, supplies and Orsimer peasants were already gone.
After the Vestige helps with the rescue of the remaining survivors and finds the note To Warlord Ice-Heart, Bazrag can be found halfway to Orsinium, standing with Eveli Sharp-Arrow and Talviah Aliaria.
Bazrag will be at King Kurog's exchange with the opposing clan chiefs.
Speak to Bazrag at The Greedy Gut.
Eveli and Bazrag must be rescued from the jail in Scarp Keep.
Bazrag and Eveli will accompany the Vestige on the Path to the Moot.
King Kurog: "Silence, chiefs! Your constant bickering has plagued our people for long enough!"
Chief Bazrag: "Kurog's belittling the chiefs. They won't stand for that."
King Kurog: "You isolate yourselves in your own strongholds, perpetuating our selfish nature. We must change who and what we are!"
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Kurog's got a point. We're still going to kill the bastard, right."
King Kurog: "I tried to appeal to you as equals, but you refused to listen. I grow tired of arguing with you."
Forge-Mother Alga: "The king cares for our people and all you do is break his heart."
Chief Bazrag: "Wonderful. The murderous king and his lunatic mother. This will be interesting.
We're getting close. Be ready for anything."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "Sounds like the time I walked in on an Imga courting ritual!"
King Kurog: "The choice is simple. Kneel before me as your king and ruler of the united Orsimer nation―or die!"
Chief Bazrag: "We need to move faster. Kurog's about to start slaughtering the chiefs!
Once we get inside, find Kurog and take him down. We need to save as many chiefs as we can.
There's still time if we move fast. We need to open this gate."
Eveli Sharp-Arrow: "There's no lever. They must have shut it from the other side."
Chief Bazrag: "Stand aside and let me work! Get ready to pull those people out of there!"
King Kurog: "You leave me no choice. I'll unite the clans over your dead bodies!"
Forge-Mother Alga: "But don't worry. Trinimac is waiting for you on the other side."
King Kurog: "Archers, eliminate the clan chiefs!"
Chief Ramash: "We've been betrayed! Defend yourselves!"
King Kurog: "And now the last guest has arrived. I'm going to make you pay for your disloyalty."
Chief Bazrag: "Clan chiefs, over here! Arrgh! Hurry, this gate is... heavier than it looks."
Eveli-Sharp Arrow: "I'll go back and help Chief Bazrag. Don't get yourself killed without me!"
King Kurog: "As impressive as always, but it doesn't matter. My soldiers are already moving to block the tunnels.
But even impressive criminals must pay for their crimes. I'm going to deal with you―personally!
Bow before the king of the Orsimer!"
After Kurog is defeated, Bazrag will stay behind to mourn him.
Attend King Kurog's funeral and Bazrag's crowning as the new king of Orsinium.

"You're the outsider who leaped into the bear's den to fight the Winterborn? Ulsha and the Wood Elf mentioned you. Surprised you didn't end up all bruised and bloody like the rest of those fools. This is our home, not an amusement for your pleasure!"
I saved your people. "And I appreciate that. Doesn't change the fact that I despise that you're here, though, sticking your nose in our business."

"We have to stop meeting like this. Maybe next time I could rescue you, what do you say? What in Malacath's name is Kurog up to, I wonder? This is brash, even for him."
Kurog is working with the Vosh Rakh. "You better not be pulling my tusk, outsider. I've known Kurog for a long time. We may disagree on certain issues, but he's always had the best interests of our people in mind. This makes no sense!"
"I had a feeling I'd find you here. Kurog sealed the route to the moot, didn't he? Damn it! Most of my contacts have gone deep into hiding and we're no closer to saving the chiefs than we were when I scraped you off the floor of the keep!"
I found this note in the throne room. "Let me see that... You can get to the moot through the temple? I had no idea that path even existed! But they sent soldiers after Solgra. That's bad. We need a new plan and we need it now."
