"You know what they say -- Home is where you hang your enemy's head...."
―Gogron gro-Bolmog[src]

Gogron groBolmog quote

Gogron gro-Bolmog is an Orsimer assassin and a member of the Dark Brotherhood. He loves massacring people, and is not too keen on using stealth. As a result, he usually forfeits the bonuses that require subtlety and tact to accomplish, and instead charges in, kills everyone in sight, and then runs out.

BackgroundEdit

He is often a counter to the members of the Brotherhood who counsel to employ stealthy tactics or actions. He focuses on the core issue, killing the target, and would rather forgo a bonus and openly kill the target instead of using quieter means. Despite his violent nature, he is immensely friendly. In addition to his non-stealthy nature, he wears leveled heavy armor instead of shrouded armor like most of the Brotherhood assassins.

He apparently has an ongoing romance with Telaendril. When asked about rumors, he implies he possesses a set of her undergarments.

InteractionsEdit

When asked about the Hero of Kvatch's current contract, he offers advice like the rest of the Dark Brotherhood.

The PurificationEdit

Gogron was killed along with the other assassins in the Cheydinhal Sanctuary by the Hero.

DialogueEdit

Show: Welcome to the Family
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

"Welcome! Welcome to the family! I'd hug you, but Ocheeva told me not to."

Lucien "I once saw Lucien deal with an insubordinate Brother, someone who had broken one of the Tenets. It took me a week to get the blood off my boots."
Night Mother "I don't know who the Night Mother is but she pays me to kill people. My own mother should have loved me so much."
Sanctuary "You know what they say -- home is where you hang your enemy's head."
Sithis "Truthfully? I've never really understood who or what Sithis really is. As long as I obey the Tenets and fulfill my contracts, I guess he's happy."

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

Show: Contract advice
In the Dark Broterhood Sanctuary:

A Watery Grave

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "So, your first contract. No chance for a bonus, huh? That's all right, you're better off! Who needs magic items when you've got raw skill? And the great thing about killing a target up close and personal is you can talk to 'em before you do it! You know, say something scary! For example, this one time, I had a contract to kill a little Nord girl at her birthday party. She asked me if I was the jester! So I said to her, "No, I am a messenger of death." You should have seen the look on her face! Ha ha ha ha! Anyway, she won't be seeing age six!"

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

Accidents Happen

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "The manservant's name is Gromm, you say? Sounds like a Nord. Probably a big one. If he catches you, get ready for a serious fight."

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

Scheduled for Execution

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "Infiltrating the Imperial Prison is no small matter. Those guards are heavily armed and professionally trained. If discovered, don't be a fool. Flee!"

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

The Assassinated Man

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "What? Fake a death? And you can't even kill the enforcer? I don't envy you, friend. But a contract's a contract. Just do what you've got to do."

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

The Lonely Wanderer

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "Now this is what I'm talking about! You kill him up close, face-to-face, and you still get the bonus! I wish all the contracts were like that!"

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

Bad Medicine

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "What do you mean nobody can see you? Where's the fun in that? Damn the bonus, I say! Just walk in there and stab him!"

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

Whodunit?

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "If you really plan on killing the guests one by one, make sure that when you strike, you strike hard. Don't want anyone running for help, do you?"

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

Permanent Retirement

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "Hmm. Don't get me wrong, that magic arrow sounds nice and all, but it seems to me like you don't even need to use it to get the bonus. As long as you cut off his finger and leave it in that desk, you'll get your bonus. Sounds to me like you can kill the old sod anyway you'd like. So what if he's wearing armor? You think that Imperial Legion scrap can stop a well-forged claymore? Not bloody likely! Ha ha ha ha ha!"

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

The Purification

"I know what you're thinking! Gogron, he's too big to be sneaky! Well you're right! Me, I like to just go in and hack my targets to pieces. Ha!"

Contract "Lachance gave me a special assignment once. Had to go all the way to the Sumerset Isle for that one, killed me about thirty Elves. Ah, good times...."

"Happy hunting, my Brother!"

ConversationsEdit

Welcome to the FamilyEdit

Gogron: "But why, Sister? What is the point? Why should anyone bother with all that sneaking and skulking?"
Telaendril: "My dear Gogron, you are a life-taker for the Dark Brotherhood! Our very existence relies on shadow and deception. Do you not value our secrets?"
Gogron: "Yes, yes, of course I value our secrets, and I have never betrayed them! But using stealth to kill.... It's just so... weak."
Telaendril: "But Brother, what of the contracts that require subtlety! You must at least strive to earn the bonuses that are offered?"
Gogron: "Bonuses? Ha ha ha ha ha! Useless, I say! Gold and magical trinkets are no substitute for the freedom to slaughter anyone I please, at any time!"
Telaendril: "Oh, Gogron! He he he he. Your methods may be crude, but your heart is always in the right place."

TriviaEdit

  • A quest in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim called "Where You Hang Your Enemy's Head" receives its name from one of Gogron's quotes. The quest involves the Dark Brotherhood.
  • Telaendril may mention that "Gogron had a pet rabbit as a child! He petted the thing so hard he crushed its skull!" This is a reference to the book Of Mice and Men where Lennie Small crushes a puppy's skull, and also dreamed of owning multiple rabbits in order to take care of them.
