Yagrum Bagarn is the last known living Dwemer. Bloated and sick with Corprus disease, he is under the care of the ancient Telvanni wizard Divayth Fyr, in Tel Fyr.[1]

Before the disappearance of the Dwarves, Bagarn was a Master Crafter in the service of the chief Tonal Architect, Lord Kagrenac.[2] Yagrum survived the disappearance because he was in another dimension at the time, an undescribed "Outer Realm". He later returned to Tamriel but contracted Corprus, causing him to fall into a state of insanity. Divayth Fyr took him in and cured much of his dementia, as well as trying out various harmless spells and potions to cure him, though none of them worked.[2] He has been looking for his people ever since with no success,[2] and has taken some time to record his knowledge for the benefit of races that still live in Tamriel.[3] He also assisted Divayth Fyr in effectively curing the Nerevarine of their corprus during The Blight crisis in 3E 427.[1]



  • The mage Barilzar is quoted as saying "Good help is as rare as the legendary Last Dwemer, but a clockwork is only as strong as its weakest cog." circa 2E 582,[4] though it is unknown if he was aware of Bagarn's existence.
  • Similarly in the Meet the Character - Sun-in-Shadow, Yagrum is referenced in the text by the famed Telvanni Therana, stating "These other mages bore me. According to my spies, Saduro does nothing but tinker away in Magister Otheri's laboratory, like some blight-faced, maladjusted Dwarf. And Teris Saryon? Two-hundred years old and still suckling at her uncle Gothren's teat. Pathetic."
  • nb1This quote is one of the Legends Loading Tips. It is an excerpt from the UOL text Sotha Sil's Last Words:
    • Sotha Sil: "You wonder where the Dwemer have gone? Perhaps better to wonder why one remains. Even gods dislike the absolute, for it stinks of something larger than themselves."
