Ghortarius is an orc mage living on the island Alsorna. He favors fire magic and is capable of stabilizing and creating magic portals. It was previously believed orcs were incapable of wielding magic, making Ghortarius the most powerful and likely only orc to do so.
He teaches the player to use magic, repairs the bridge, and gets the teleports working. Rogdor notices Ghortarius suffering from nightmares and requests the player look into it. After the mage Nathas is dealt with Ghortarius’s nightmares end.
