The Warrior is one of the three guardian signs who protect Tamriel from the Celestial Serpent. However, before the events of Craglorn, the Serpent corrupted the Mage and the Warrior, turning them against Tamriel and into agents of chaos.

The Warrior resembles a large soldier with a Yokudan mask. He is encountered throughout the Hel Ra Citadel, and is the final enemy of the trial. In it, he is fought in his stone-like Anka Ra form within the Hall of the Warrior, the final chamber. Upon defeat, he will turn into a pile of dust and speak to The Thief, saying he is free from the Serpent's control.

Skills and Abilities[edit]

Channeled Swipes

The Warrior chases one enemy and attacks them with his sword multiple times, and can easily kill them with just a few blows

Shehai Sword
Shehai Storm

The Warrior casts numerous electric bolts at each player, dealing a great deal of damage with each one. This attack can easily be countered by blocking with a weapon, which will greatly reduce the damage done.

Shehai Storm Explosion

Getting rid of his mace and shield, the warrior quickly corporealizes a powerful Shehai Sword in his hands, building it upwards. Once the sword is fully summoned, it causes an explosive shockwave that blasts open the walls and knocks players back.

Dialogue[edit]

Assaulting the Citadel[edit]

Entering the Citadel and beginning the trial:

The Warrior: "The Warrior and his army of old Yokuda claim the Citadel of Hel Ra! Leave—and live. Trespass—and die. You have been warned."
The Warrior: "My soldiers of sand and steel will strip your flesh!"

Reaching the bridge:

The Warrior: "You have come farther than those feeble Undaunted. But you will fall just the same."
Ra Kotu comes out of the citadel to face you in battle
The Warrior: "Air and sand can cut like blades in the wind. Ra Kotu will prove this!"
Entering the inner sanctum within the citadel
The Warrior: "The mortals have come far. But only Ansei of First Rank are allowed in this chamber."
Entering the Warrior's chamber
The Warrior: "The Shehai of a first rank Ansei sank Yokuda. This Warrior's Shehai is beyond first rank."
When destroying the Hel Ra Statues (increasing boss difficulty in Veteran Mode)
  • "I will crush you for that insolence."
  • "You will regret that."
  • "Are you so eager to die?"
  • "You have doomed yourselves. You have no idea what you've done."

After being defeated, the weakened spectral form of the Warrior will appear and kneel at the platform in the center. The Thief and, if the Aetherian Archive has also been completed, The Mage will appear. Their dialog depends on the completion status of the other two Craglorn Trials, Aetherian Archive and Sanctum Ophidia.

Only Hel Ra Citadel complete:

The Warrior: "The Serpent no longer clouds my mind. My sword will claim his neck."
The Thief: "The Serpent belongs in the natural order. We will stop him, not murder him."
The Warrior: "All talk and no action. Fall in behind me. The Serpent will learn his lesson."

Completed Aetherian Archive but NOT Sanctum Ophidia:

The Warrior: "My eyes are finally clear. My sword will claim the Serpent's neck."
The Thief: "The Serpent belongs in the natural order. The three of us will contain him, not end him."
The Mage: "Then we should return him to his Apex Stone. And seal it properly. Thrice—if we have to."
The Warrior: "To the Serpent's Stone, then. Fall in behind me. The snake will learn his lesson."

Completed Sanctum Ophidia but NOT Aetherian Archive:

The Warrior: "My mind is free of the Serpent's thrall. My sword hungers for his neck."
The Thief: "The Serpent has been confined to his Stone. Now, come. There is still the Mage to free from his influence."
The Warrior: "That is hearty work—for a Thief. Fall in behind me. I will lead us to glory."

Completed both Aetherian Archive and Sanctum Ophidia:

The Warrior: "The Serpent no longer clouds my mind. Eyes clear, my sword will claim his neck."
The Thief: "The Serpent has been confined to his Apex Stone, and the natural order is restored. But his attention will turn elsewhere. We should depart."
The Warrior: "Surprisingly efficient. For a Thief and a Mage. Fall in line behind me. I will take charge from here."
The Mage: "How gracious of you."
The Thief: "We should depart."

The Mage's Tower[edit]

After the Mage is defeated in the Aetherian Archive, the Warrior may appear if the Hel Ra Citadel has be previously completed.


Completed Hel Ra Citadel but NOT Sanctum Ophidia:

The Mage: "Finally. My mind is my own."
The Thief: "It has been too long."
The Warrior: "You mean not long enough."
The Mage: "I forget how quaint you are, Warrior. I have a fiery gift for the snake. Where is he?"
The Thief: "He remains out in the world, wreaking havoc in this region."
The Mage: "What do you propose we do?"
The Warrior: "Let us slay him."
The Thief: "The natural order must be restored. We contain the Serpent, not end him."
The Mage: "Then we should return him to his Apex Stone."
The Thief: "Agreed. Let us convene at the Stone."

Completed both Hel Ra Citadel and Sanctum Ophidia:

The Mage: "My thoughts are my own again."
The Thief: "It has been some time."
The Warrior: "Not long enough."
The Mage: "The Warrior—how quaint. Where is the snake? I owe him a fiery spell for this."
The Thief: "Defeated—locked away in his Apex Stone, but his attention will turn elsewhere. We should depart."

The Oldest Ghost[edit]

After the Serpent's physical form is destroyed, the Warrior may appear at the Apex Stone with the other freed celestials.


Completed Hel Ra Citadel but NOT Aetherian Archive:

The Serpent: "No! The mortals must perish!"
The Warrior: "It is done."
The Thief: "Even the two of us could not break this new seal on the Stone. The Serpent will never enter this plane, again. Let us depart—the Mage remains in the Serpent's thrall."

Completed both Hel Ra Citadel and Aetherian Archive:

The Serpent: "No! The mortals must perish!"
The Warrior: "It is done."
The Mage: "The Serpent could not break this new seal with the blood of a thousand mortals. He will never return to this plane."
The Thief: "But his attention will wander elsewhere. We should depart."
