Rorik is a slightly gloomy man in his older years. He claims to have changed a lot for the worse since the war and that he has lost his charm years ago.
The Great WarEdit
Rorik was a soldier in the Imperial Army during the Great War, in which he commanded a force of several dozen soldiers, most of which were from the Hold of Whiterun. Unfortunately, an Aldmeri soldier ran Rorik through with his blade during battle, and left him to die. However, Rorik was saved by Jouane Manette, a Breton healer.
After the war, he claims he founded the settlement of Rorikstead. However, Rorikstead has existed since the First Era, when it was called Rorik's Steading, over a thousand years before Rorik was even born. Likely his claim is an empty boast. Rorik, along with Jouane, resides in Rorik's Manor, the most northern building in Rorikstead.
