Corvus Umbranox was the Count of Anvil before he went missing ten years ago, due to the curse of the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal. Corvus Umbranox is the last known Gray Fox, Guildmaster of the Thieves Guild. He is also known as The Stranger when not wearing the cowl. Once the Thieves Guild questline is complete, he becomes Count of Anvil again.
The cowl became cursed when Emer Dareloth stole it from Nocturnal, becoming the first Gray Fox. As a result, whoever wears the cowl will have their name stricken from history.
The Gray Fox needs the Savilla's Stone from the Temple of the Ancestor Moths. He asks that no one outside the temple be killed, but those guarding the artifact inside are permitted to be killed, if necessary.
The Gray Fox wants the Hero to steal the Boots of Springheel Jak from a former thief who died 300 years ago. He knows that a descendant of Springheel Jak, Jakben, Earl of Imbel, lives in Imperial City.
Corvus convinces the Hero to steal an Elder Scroll from the library in the Imperial City Palace. After this is done, he gives the Hero a ring and tells them to take it to Countess of Anvil. He then reveals himself in Castle Anvil as the Gray Fox. He says that the curse of the cowl has been lifted and people will be able to recognize him again. Renouncing his life of crime and becoming the Count of Anvil once more, he bestows the Cowl upon the Hero.
- Corvus can be killed once his true identity is revealed.
- 'Corvus Umbranox' translates to 'Raven Shadow Night' in Latin, an indication of his stealthy background.
