Emperor Leovic

Emperor Leovic is a Reachman zombie boss found in the Abyssal Depths section of the Imperial Sewers. During the fight, he will transform into a flesh atronach.

A Worm Cult Dreadmage, Battlemage and Cryomancer are performing a ritual in front of the Emperor's corpse. The Worm Cultists surrounding his throne must be killed before you can face the former Emperor. His flesh atronach textures are unique, as his torn clothes are clinging to his swollen form.

He was formerly the Emperor of Cyrodiil a number of years ago before being deposed by Varen Aquilarios. According to the Groundskeeper's Letter and dialogue with The Rat, Leovic's body was dumped in the sewers after his death at the hands of Varen Aquilarios.

As you explore the secret chamber in Brandfire Reformatory you can hear him:

Emperor Leovic: "Free us, mortals! Now!"

You may talk to him after the souls of Longhouse Emperors are freed from their prison in the secret chamber:

"This is not freedom. No, simply a respite from the darkness.
I remember the traitors at my gates, the blade of the usurper slicing through my flesh. But I hid them away. I did my best to fulfill the bargain."
Who are you?
"I am Leovic, last of the Longhouse Emperors. But who are you? You have the stink of the traitorous Varen about you. That snake! I knew he was coming. I knew I had to take action. Preserve the plan. Keep the secret. Salvage the contingency."
Tell me about this plan.
"It started with my grandfather, but it was my father who passed the responsibility to me. It was all part of the bargain the Black Drake made with Mehrunes Dagon. We would prepare the Four Ambitions, and in return, our family would rule forever."
So what happened?
"I took action! I moved the Ambitions to new vaults. Safe vaults. But before I could do more, the usurper murdered me. And how did Mehrunes Dagon reward me? By locking me away in a block of metal! And the secret of the Longhouse Emperors died with me."

After the conversation with his father, Moricar, the meeting between the Anchorite and the spirits of the Longhouse Emperors will come to an untimely end. Leovic and other spirits vanish as Sombren attacks them.
