"The night is dark and full of terrors...And I will burn all who dwell in it."
Vurus, often referred to as Lord Vurus or The Fire Priest, is a major character in the sixth season. Vurus is a priest of the Lord of Light who appears mysteriously in Helgen after Ethan Snow's body was returned to House Dragen.

Powers and abilities

  • Visions: Vurus repeatedly has visions of the future by staring into the fire and praying. These visions may take time to come true, as Vurus claims. He is able to show others these visions as well, as he showed Erik Lucius' demise at the hands of a resurrected Ethan Snow.
  • Fire Magic: Vurus can call upon the Lord of Light in order to perform Fire Magic. He can ignite objects at will, create and "bend" fire out of thin air and heal people with flames.
    • Cold Resistance: Vurus, like all other Red Priests does not seem to be affected by coldness.
  • Poison Protection: Vurus, like all other Red Priests is immune to any type of poison.
  • Resurrection: It is safe to assume that Vurus can resurrect the dead. He claims to have done so to a fellow Red Priest who was murdered by a Faith fanatic. However, Vurus can only resurrect people through sacrificing someone to the Lord of Light.


Spoken by Vurus

"Erik: You come to Helgen, for what?
Vurus: I'm not a warrior, I come because the Lord told me so.
Erik: Then help us.
Vurus: I will, young one. I promise you, the Red Dragon shall not live to see his next nameday."
―Vurus, to Erik


  • Vurus's name is derived from the Dutch word for fire: "Vuur"
