General Morgahn
Species: Human
Profession: Paragon
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
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 your party his name is displayed as General Morgahn, although at the end of the Grand Court of Sebelkeh mission, he firmly insists on being called Morgahn, not General Morgahn.
