All attempts to talk him out of it fail, and will be met with him saying that he has become too old to be a chief, too old to marry, and wants to die while he can still call himself a proper man, and that he wants to die in battle to please his god, the Daedric prince Malacath.
He can be "helped" or left alone. Agreeing to help will cause him to become hostile.

- Unlike most Random Encounters, the Old Orc does not "reset" and remains at the place where he first spawned for the rest of the game. Also, his corpse does not disappear over time.
- It is possible to encounter this character on more than one occasion.
- He may be a reference to Umbra, an Orc in Morrowind who was seeking death, feeling that it was past time he died.
- The armor he wears is radiant and varies between Leather Armor, Fur Armor and Hide Armor.
