Background[edit | edit source]
As the second dragon comes to a heavy landing, you take note of the figure atop its back: a woman with sweeping horns, garbed in flowing robes. She slides from the dragon's back in one graceful movement.
Llengrath is a powerful wizard, author of many (mostly defensive) spells. As one of the most powerful mages in the world, Llengrath has made significant advancements in the field of magic, and later faced the same obstacle as her rival Concelhaut: Death. Accompanied by two high dragons, Gafonercos and Turisulfus, Llengrath is a force to be reckoned with not only by her powers (as this is one of the toughest battles in the game) but also by her strategy to preserve oneself and cheat death in a different way.
The original Llengrath thought of something Concelhault did not. He realized memory and consciousness are insignificant when compared to one's whole life or knowledge, and sought to become immortal by creating a cult and preserving his knowledge through time. Llengrath's party was behind the Siege of Cragholdt and the employment of the Torn Bannermen to kill Concelhault and acquire his engwithan phylactery. The Archmage acknowledges the Player's strength for taking down the Torn Bannermen, one of the most powerful mercenary groups in the world. Llengrath feared that the phylactery might fall into wrong hands, and seeks to destroy its secrets and execute anyone who knows them. For that reason, the Watcher is a primary target since he/she knows how to possibly become immortal.
At Mowrghek Îen, The Watcher of Caed Nua speaks to a Llengrath that wasn't the first, nor the last. Each new disciple wears the title of Llengrath by studying everything the original wizard has discovered, thus becoming the new Archmage.
The Forgotten Sanctum[edit | edit source]
The Watcher encounters Llengrath again years later, while investigating the strange tremors linked to the newly-appearing tentacles at the Black Isles. Llengrath is found investigating the absence of Maura of the Seven Hills, a fellow archmage known for her cryptic activities and connections to some of the largest and most devastating cataclysms on Eora. She then invites the Watcher to join her little investigation beneath the isle. Below, she stumbles upon her colleague; another of the of the most powerful mages in Eora who claims to also be investigating the dead god buried beneath; the Archmage Tayn and imp Drowsy Puke, representing Arkemyr. As usual, Tayn's chaotic behavior gets on her nerves, especially when he has the gall to call her Llen, as if she were an imp.
However, the visit to Wael's temple produces more knowledge than she's prepared to learn, as it becomes apparent that the Halls Obscured also contain secrets related to the very first Llengrath, and the solution to the sudden disappearance of their communion. Llengrath is more than merely a title, after all, but a communion going all the way back to the very first archmage. It was taken from them by the Hand Occult, who sequestered the collected memories of the first Llen in its vast archives beneath the Black Isles.

Quests[edit | edit source]
- The Phylactery's Promise: Her dragons acknowledge The Watcher's strength if he/she killed Sefyra, the Master Below, and are eager to defeat him in battle. The quest can also be completed in a nonlethal way if the player passes a 16 Intellect dialogue check or has Honest 2+ reputation. Llengrath can be convinced to form a pact with the protagonist, where she will gain knowledge about souls (a Watcher's knowledge) and the Watcher will receive a permanent bonus to +1 INT/PER/RES. Also, the player receives Llengrath's Grimoire, Bog dragon scales and +5 security to his stronghold. All of these rewards, except for the permanent attribute buffs and the stronghold security bonus, can be obtained by slaying Llengrath and her two Bog dragons. Be warned though, as it's arguably the hardest battle in Pillars of Eternity.
