The Forgemaster is bigger and stronger than normal Centurions. It appears after all other Dwemer Animunculi in the chamber have been dealt with, arising from the magma from behind the forge. Parts of its armor and metal appear yellow hot, as it was recently bathed in magma. Instead of a normal Centurion steam attack, it performs a fire breath attack, similar to that of dragons. Upon death its armor cools and it shrinks to the size of an ordinary Dwarven centurion.
The Forgemaster appears as the final enemy that must be defeated before the Dragonborn can use the Aetherium Forge.
- Unlike regular animunculi, the Forgemaster is immune to fire damage and vulnerable to frost damage.
- Any viable pieces of metal that are looted from the Forgemaster's body can still be smelted into the respective ingots, despite the metal seemingly showing no warping ill-effects when submerged in magma for what can be safely presumed to be a very extended period of time.
