Contents

Dremora are an aggressive humanoid species of Daedra who serve the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon. They are commonly encountered throughout the planes of Oblivion. Physically, Dremora resemble large, dark reddish skinned humanoids, and they boast a natural Resistance to Magic. The Dremora that appear in the game are almost invariably male. There is only one instance of a female Dremora to be found anywhere, at Markynaz rank. (Though she may spawn in several places, so you may see her more than once.) They are intelligent, sentient beings and make capable warriors and mages. Dremora are treated as NPCs, and as such, their souls can only be trapped using Black Soul Gems. Also, every Dremora you take out will add to the "NPCs Killed" list. However, it will not count as a murder (whether for bounty or Dark Brotherhood purposes), even if the Dremora never knew of your presence.

All Dremora possess a leveled Resistance to Magic (between 25 and 50 points, depending on rank), two Destruction spells and a Mysticism spell. They are equipped with Dremora weapons and armor, the latter of which cannot be looted, though at the higher ranks, they are sometimes equipped with Daedric armors, which can be looted. Dremora mages will be equipped with a Staff and a set of Dremora Robes, as well as additional Alteration and Summon spells. Like the armor, Dremora Robes may not be looted. Dremora may carry an enchanted weapon, and upon their death will drop a Daedra Heart as well as random potions, scrolls, or gems. Dremora Valkynaz may also carry jewelry.

Dremora society is a class-based clan system that upholds values of oaths, pride, honor and loyalty, both to the clan and to Lord Mehrunes Dagon, whom they venerate as a god. Dremora culture appears to be male dominated, and focuses on training and preparing for battle and war. Dremora fall into one of seven different ranks, each more powerful and privileged than the rank below. These ranks are further distributed into melee, missile or mage classes. Dremora refer to their race as the 'Kyn' (the People) and to other Dremora as 'Kynaz' (of the Kyn). They consider themselves to be above other Daedra. More information can be found in the book Varieties of Daedra.

Four specific Dremora found in Mankar Camoran's Paradise are named: Kathutet, Amkaos, Orthe and Ranyu.

[edit] Notes

  • It is possible to charm Dremora to the point where they will not attack. They have very little dialogue, being limited to the greeting:
"Be quick about it, mortal."
  • With high enough Fame and Illusion skill, even Valkynaz can be charmed so as not to attack the player. It is also possible to yield to charmed Dremora. If they accept, they will say:
"Go, and live."
  • Under certain circumstances, approaching a Dremora will sometimes cause them to utter:
"Begone, mortal."
  • Dremora NPCs have no dialogue for the Persuasion mini-game, though they are still capable of making different facial expressions in reaction to each topic.
  • Interestingly enough, there is no 'Valkynaz' rank in the in-game Dremora faction; Dremora Valkynaz are actually assigned to the Markynaz rank. Most Dremora in the actual in-game faction are one rank lower than their name would indicate.
  • The word kyn is the Old Norse word for "family".[1].
  • Churl is from the Old English word ceorle, meaning "a non-servile peasant".[2]
  • Caitiff means either a captive/prisoner or a villain/coward/wretch, derived from old French caitif.[3]
  • Kynreeve can be translated somewhat into "Chief Magistrate of the Kyn", as reeve means a local official or a chief magistrate of an area.[4]
  • Through the Oblivion Construction Set, it is possible to play as a Dremora by clicking the "Playable" box in the race menu. However, in the way of Roleplaying, it would not be very realistic to be a Dremora civilian in Cyrodiil, since they are seen only as denizens of Oblivion and as summoned servants by mages (as seen in the Thieves Guild quest Misdirection).

[edit] Bugs

  • The female Markynaz archer displays the "I have no greeting" text if you charm her and attempt to speak to her. In fact, she will not even grunt or shout in combat; she is completely mute. This is due to female Dremora having no assigned voice files.

[edit] Ranks

[edit] Churl

Dremora Churls occupy the lowest echelon of Dremora society, and fulfill the role of expendable foot soldiers in Mehrunes Dagon's armies. They are typically armed with a Dremora Mace and they wear Dremora Churl Armor (no helmet), or Robes for Mages, which cannot be looted. These Dremora start appearing from player level 1, and are the weakest Dremora.

[edit] Caitiff

Dremora Caitiffs are a low level rank of Dremora utilized by Mehrunes Dagon as berserkers and shock troops. They start appearing at player level 8 and are more powerful than Dremora Churls. These Dremora wear Dremora Caitiff Armor (50% chance they wear a helmet), or Robes for Mages, which cannot be looted. Dremora Caitiffs are summoned by the spell Summon Dremora.

Dremora Valkynaz are the highest rank of Dremora and reside at the upper-most pinnacle of Dremora society. They serve as princes and army commanders and possess membership into the personal guard of Mehrunes Dagon, the Valkyn.
