Rorek of Nol was a powerful wizard and enemy of the dragon Malchior.
Rorek of Nol was a powerful White sorcerer in Europe 1,000 years ago. He went out to battle the evil dragon Malchior, but found that his opponent's magical and physical powers vastly outmatched his own. As a last resort, Rorek used his spellbook as a focus to imprison the dragon inside it with an ancient curse. Later on, he chronicled this titanic battle in the book.
What happened to Rorek afterwards remains unknown; it is assumable that he died of old age. His identity was usurped by the trapped Malchior, who exchanged his name for Rorek's in the book's pages and vice versa to faciliate his eventual release by Raven. However, shortly afterwards Malchior was cursed back into the book, which was then kept under lock and key until Malchior's re-release by the Brotherhood of Evil.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Rorek possessed highly powerful mystical abilities as an experienced and formidable wizard, having mastered many arts of European Earth sorcery in his prime. He was quite knowledgable in the mystic arts both of White and Dark magic, though he evidently was a White sorcerer.
Established effects of his magic were his capability to fire energy bolts, earth control, and creating magic shields. The true extent of his magical powers remain unknown.
- Rorek seems to bear a slight resemblance to the character "Sheik" from the Legend of Zelda video game franchise.
- It is notable that even after the identity-swap was figured out, Rorek still bore an M on his armour.
- Strangely, Rorek is shown to have mascara and is seen to be feminine in appearance, despite being a male.
- Rorek's name is likely based upon Hreoric, one of the sons of Hroogar (or Hrothgar) from the Old scandanavin epic poem Beowulf.
