Thorek is a Nord worshipper of Vaermina living in Nightcaller Temple. When Nightcaller Temple was attacked by an Orc war party intending to destroy the Skull of Corruption, the worshippers released the Miasma, a gas that put everyone to sleep. Years later, when the Miasma is finally lifted, he and Veren Duleri will attempt to defend the Skull of Corruption from Erandur, whom they consider a traitor for fleeing the Temple.
You first encounter Thorek in the Dreamstride, conversing with Veren Duleri, another Vaermina devotee:
Thorek: "The orcs have breached the inner sanctum, Brother Veren."
Veren: "We must hold. We can't allow the Skull to fall into their hands."
Thorek: "But... no more than a handful of us remain, brother."
Veren: "Then we have no choice. The Miasma must be released."
Thorek: "The Miasma? But, brother..."
Veren: "We have no alternative. It's the will of Vaermina.
Veren will instruct you to "activate the barrier and release the Miasma", then continue the conversation:
Veren: "Brother Thorek, we must remain here and guard this Skull with our lives if necessary."
Thorek: "Agreed. To the death."
Veren: "Then let it be done. Farewell, my brothers!"
You will encounter Thorek and Veren again as you and Erandur reach the Skull of Corruption.
Erandur: "Wait... Veren... Thorek... you're alive!"
Veren: "No thanks to you, Casimir."
Erandur: "I no longer use that name. I'm Erandur, Priest of Mara."
Veren: "You're a traitor. You left us to die and then ran before the Miasma took you."
Erandur: "No. I... I was scared. I wasn't ready to sleep."
Veren: "Enough of your lies! I can't allow you to destroy the Skull, Priest of Mara."
Erandur: "Then you leave me no choice!"
You and Erandur will have to fight the two Vaermina devotees. Upon death, Thorek will say, "Vaermina forgive me..."
