Mannimarco, the King of Worms, is a master necromancer who is conspiring with Molag Bal to drag Tamriel into the Daedric realm of Coldharbour. As the leader of the Worm Cult, he has deceived the Empire and made a dark pact with the Tharn Family, raising the corpses of dead soldiers to fight for the Imperials. He is seen in the opening cutscene for the main quest tutorial, where he sacrifices you to Molag Bal, trapping your soul in his realm.

Halls of Torment
- "Where is the Amulet of Kings?" (to Sai Sahan)
God of Schemes
- "You! Come to gloat at my torment? Or is your appearance here a part of it?"
- Mannimarco? You're still alive?
- "I am neither alive nor dead. I am trapped in a gout of ash and bile and swirling vapors. My ears are filled with the screams of a thousand nails being drawn. And the pain! The pain is endless."
- Why is Molag Bal keeping you here?
- "I am his plaything. And an abject lesson to others who would thwart him. My plan was flawless. My machinations were executed to perfection. I would have been a god, if not for you."
- "My only consolation is that you will know this pain, soon enough."
- I'm here to defeat him and take my soul back.
- "Arrogant, presumptuous, egotistical twaddle! That bit of costume jewelry is nothing compared to the Master's power."
- "I expect I'll be seeing you soon. My only joy for the rest of eternity will be hearing your tortured screams!"
- I could release you if you wish.
- "After all that's transpired? I killed you, you simpleton. I saw your life gutter and fade like a candle flame in a tempest. My undead servants drank your blood and I reanimated your corpse."
- "Do not taunt me with such hilarity."
- So be it.
If you choose to release him, he will say the following:
- Mannimarco: "You actually released me? Naive fool! Future generations will pay for your weakness!"
- Abnur Tharn: "Are you insane? That worm didn't deserve your mercy!"
- Lyris Titanborn: "Why do I get the feeling we're going to regret this?"
- Mannimarco is voiced by Jim Ward.
