General Morgahn

Species: Human
Profession: Paragon Paragon-icon.png
Level(s): 20

General Morgahn is one of the Heroes available in Guild Wars Nightfall. He is one of three generals of Kourna and is a devotee of Lyssa.


Origin: Kourna
Age: Unknown
Profession: Paragon

From the manual:

Three generals report directly to Warmarshal Varesh Ossa. General Morgahn has known her the longest, having served under her father for decades. When Varesh was born, Morgahn spent years assisting with her training and the shaping of her character. As a loyal patriot, he considers duty and honor to be the highest virtues a soldier can have. Although Varesh is curious about lofty philosophical concepts like Ascension, Morgahn keeps to a simple faith. He's a devout follower of the goddess Lyssa, holding great respect for artists and crafters. Like any good soldier, he chants his prayers to Balthazar when charging into battle, but in the dark of night, it's his faith in Lyssa that sustains him.



Complete the Grand Court of Sebelkeh mission, which becomes accessible once the primary quest Pledge of the Merchant Princes is completed.

In Zehlon Reach:

"Lyssa teaches us that the glory of leadership is found in duty and honor."

During Tihark Orchard Mission:

"I am both a soldier and a follower of Lyssa. The two are not in conflict. Both demand devotion and dedication. Without those virtues, a man is worthless."

During quest Pledge of the Merchant Princes, in the Mirror of Lyss:

"The princes were blinded to Varesh's threat by their greed and opulence. I was blinded by loyalty and honor. Lyssa has taught me to look past the illusions in which I encased myself. For the first time in my life I can see clear as day."

In Throne of Secrets:

"Lyssa must have heard my prayers. Kourna is saved and my dishonor is forgiven. Praise the Six Gods!"


Idle Quotes[]

A hero's idle quote changes as the player progresses along the primary quests and missions:

Attack at the Kodash:

  • "All I ask is a chance to redeem myself. If you won't give it to me, then perhaps the gods will."

Crossing the Desolation:

  • "I've already sold my soul when I worked for Varesh. The sin of understanding Palawa Joko is nothing compared to my past."

A Deal's a Deal:

  • "Kourna, Istan, and Vabbi have turned their backs on me, but Lyssa still hears my prayers. All is not lost."

Horde of Darkness:

  • "I'd rather fight wurms than men. Natural obstacles are surmountable. Mankind is unpredictable, and therefore a greater threat."

Uncharted Territory:

Gate of Pain:

  • "Kormir...I remember her boldness when she defended Istan, and I remember what an honorable warrior she was in opposition. I am proud to fight on her side in these last battles."

Kormir's Crusade

  • "They say that blood moves the wheels of history. After seeing that river of souls, I believe it."

All Alone in the Darkness:

  • "Put your faith in the gods, but keep your weapons out."

Gate of Madness:

  • "I don't care if anyone remembers my name, for my good deeds or my bad. I only care that in the end I redeemed my honor and died as peace with my soul."

Abaddon's Gate:

  • "You would be surprised at how many things apparently impossible have nevertheless been performed by resolute men who had no alternative but death."
