Morokei wielding the Staff of Magnus

Morokei is one of the eight high-ranking dragon priests of Skyrim. He is located in the antechamber of Labyrinthian and possesses both the Staff of Magnus and his eponymous mask.

As you journey through Labyrinthian, ghostly images from the past reveal that Savos Aren had encountered Morokei prior to you. In an act of desperation, he sacrificed the lives of two College students in order to keep Morokei sealed within Labyrinthian for the good of Skyrim.

Throughout Labyrinthian, Morokei taunts you - at first, in the dragon language, then secondly in the Skyrim vernacular - and asks if you are Savos. His disembodied voice, often accompanied by a blue wind capable of sapping magicka, follows you all the way to the end of the dungeon, where he is found incarcerated by two ex-College thralls.

Due to the nature of the Staff of Magnus, Morokei elects to use his own spells rather than the staff. This can make him an exceptionally dangerous foe as he can summon a storm atronach in combat and can turn your own summons against you with the spell Command Daedra. He is particularly dangerous for players using melee weapons against him because of his Lightning Cloak spell. He can also use the following spells: Greater Ward, Chain Lightning, Thunderbolt, and Ebonyflesh.
