Zahkriisos is a dragon priest found within Bloodskal Barrow. He is found in the final chamber of the tomb, and serves as the final boss of the quest The Final Descent.
In addition to being able to conjure Seekers from Apocrypha, Zahkriisos excels at lightning-based magic, so much so that at a high enough level, he can dual-cast Lightning Storm—a master-level spell—along with Thunderbolt. He also knows the spells Greater Ward and Ebonyflesh.
Upon death, Zahkriisos drops his eponymous mask.
- Zahkriisos literally means "sword blood" in the dragon language, though a more sensible translation might be "bloody sword", possibly a reference to the unique blade required to access his tomb.
