Miraak (Dragon Language: Mir-Aak, “Allegiance-Guide”) is the main antagonist in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn, The first of the known Dragonborns (according to him, locals from Solstheim and Hermaeus Mora) and also a dragon priest.
When dragons had supreme power over mortals, Miraak was a dragon priest on the Island called Solstheim. He could access the Black Book, eventually leading him to service under Hermaeus Mora, the Daedric King of Knowledge and Fate, who taught him a method for the enormous power of a dragon’s shout capable of bending dragons to his desires.
With this knowledge, which was forbidden to him at his disposal, Miraak turned on his dragon masters and used the ability and power of Dragonborn to devour the souls of their masters and grow ever more powerful. In the Dragon War, the ancient Nord heroes Hakon One-Eye Gormlaith Golden-Hilt and Felldir, the Elder, had begged defeat miraak to use his Dragonborn power to aid them in defeating Alduin. But Miraak did not want to help and instead fought himself to revolt against the dragons. Due to the treason that he had committed, the dragons destroyed their temple on Solstheim.
His revolt was unsuccessful, and the rebel was defeated by a Dragon Priest known as Vahlok, who was later appointed his jailer and confined him to Solstheim. [11 other accounts say that at the exact moment, Vahlok was close to killing Miraak, Hermaeus Mora rescued the man by transferring Miraak into The realm of Apocrypha. The dragons then appointed Vahlok as the ruler of the Island. However, it was not until he had been forced to swear an oath to guard against the return of Miraak that he earned the name “The Jailor. ” 2.
While this was happening, Miraak stayed in the realm of Apocrypha until he accumulated enough influence and power to return to Solstheim. Eventually, he could do it within 2004 in the year 4E201.
Miraak is considered reckless and arrogant, believing that his Dragonborn heritage is superior to his previous dragon masters. When he meets Miraak, the Last Dragonborn, Miraak can boast that, as compared to them, they’ve only killed a “few dragons” and do not yet fully comprehend the potential of an actual Dragonborn like him (unless your primary mission is completed In which the case Miraak will admit to his admiration for his fellow Dragonborn). He also believes that he is superior to the shackles of Hermaeus Mora. Miraak has also been described as a person seeking power and has been known to tie himself to the lordship of Hermaeus to gain forbidden and passionate knowledge.
Perhaps because of his arrogance, Miraak is shown to be a potent person. He was able to overcome the Dragons that he fought and defeat them and adept at devouring several of them before his demise. A total of 21 different Dragon bones can be found all around and inside his temple.
Miraak is adamantly independent and appears driven by his passion for power. This is evident not just through his first betrayal of the Dragons at their peak the power of them but his resistance to the consequences of Apocrypha because it is believed that their desire for knowledge binds those who go there are unable to escape; however, Miraak is unaffected.
In his final fight against the Dragonborn in his last battle, he says that Hakon, as well as the other Nord heroes, had the desire to use him to kill Alduin but decided not to do so due to the reasons he had. If Alduin had already been defeated when he met him, he’ll declare that the World Eater could kill him as a further indication of his arrogance.
After starting the mission ” The Way of the Voice,” two Cultists will make a call and ask the Dragonborn to confirm if they are Dragonborn. Following the conversation, they will take on. Once they have been killed, they will be buried. A note containing an order to be killed by one of them, “False” Dragonborn, to help Miraak is found on their bodies. The quest is taken to Solstheim Island. Solstheim.
On the Island When you arrive, a search for Raven Rock will result in someone suggesting it is suggested that The Temple of Miraak be studied. Then, it is discovered that Miraak is now taking over the inhabitants of Solstheim with the help of Miraak’s All-Maker Stones.
The Temple of Miraak
Miraak faces The Last Dragonborn.
Miraak himself is seen in the very first way after the adventure. After finding his Black Book: Dreaming Dreams, within the temple’s depths, the Dragonborn is transported into Apocrypha, the realm of Hermaeus’s Mora. The moment it is discovered, Miraak will strike the Dragonborn to the ground and tell them that they don’t know the power of the Dragonborn. He will then say that they will wait for his return just like other people in Tamriel, instructing his hunters to take their Dragonborn home to Nirn and then ride off on the back of a dragon.
If the Dragonborn kills a dragon while it already has a dragon soul, whether, in Solstheim or Skyrim, Miraak will briefly appear to mock the Dragonborn, absorb the dragon’s soul, and then vanish.
At the Summit of Apocrypha
Miraak returns one more time towards the end of the quest to take down those who are Dragonborn, as well as eat their souls to bring them back to Solstheim. Miraak starts with a brief monologue while his dragons, Relonikiv and Kruziikrel, are seated in nearby arches.
During the fight, dragons circled the top. Every time Miraak is near death, the king will summon an individual dragon and devour its soul to bring back his health. When the three dragons are eaten, he is finally defeated.
After the loss, Hemaeus is seen threatening him with a tentacle and expresses his displeasure. Then Miraak disappears, leaving only the remains of a body. Hermaeus Mora transfers his position to Last Dragonborn. The Dragonborn is then absorbed by Miraak’s soul, giving him five to ten dragon souls and any other souls Miraak might have taken. Because of the soul absorption, the Dragonborn will remain as an unrecognizable Skeleton. Consequently, it is only possible for the Dragonborn to ever be able to see the face of Miraak by dispensing the mask to the console.
It is possible to climb Mount Sahrotaar to take a flight to the top of the mountain where Miraak resides. Be aware that you can eliminate a couple of seekers from one or more islands while you’re there. However, it’s not mandatory. Perhaps you’ve seen that the dragon has the same path. So sooner or later, you’ll encounter your foe. Your arrival will shock him and allow you to deliver the first punch.
The battle will follow the same pattern – once Miraak’s health drops to a certain amount (around 30 per cent) then, he’ll teleport to an inaccessible spot on the map. He will then take the souls of one or the other nearby Dragons (therefore healing injuries). The process repeats four times. The final one who dies is Sahrotaar Sahrotaar, who may attempt to attack you before the final battle (using Bend Will again, which will end his life).
The method to beat Miraak will be pretty straightforward – remain close to him as possible and strike with a close fight (he’s much more dangerous in an open battle). The opponent can employ a variety of spells, including electricity. However, it’s not ideal in a regular match. You should be excellent if you only have some healing potion and can fight with ease.
If defeat miraak is left with low health and no further Dragons within the region, Hermaeus Mora will show up and take him down. In this way, the main adventure, Dragonborn, will conclude. Before you leave the hostile land in Apocrypha, you must search your enemy’s body and then use your book placed in the middle of the room to earn another reward. You can utilize the dragon souls you’ve collected (11 in all) to obtain the skill points that were not appropriately distributed. This option is beneficial and can be utilized as often as you want (by returning to the spot).
