Today's a good day to be afraid. You have tomorrow and the rest of your life to be brave.

— Magnus the Bloody-Handed

Captain Magnus "the Bloody-Handed" Irondawn is the norn captain of the Cormorant, and the current leader of the Lionguard. A member of the Captain's Council, he is responsible for protecting the merchants and enforcing the law in Lion's Arch. Before his current post, he was an adventurer who gained great fame for himself.


In 1319 AE, Magnus was indirectly responsible for the formation of Destiny's Edge, and traveled with the guild to defeat Morgus Lethe, his former captain and a lieutenant of Zhaitan.

In 1325 AE Magnus led the defense of Lion's Arch against the karka, and in 1327 AE he defended Lion's Arch once more, against the forces of Scarlet Briar. In the process of attempting to hold Fort Marriner, he lost one of his eyes fighting a Molten Berserker, and was evacuated aboard Captain Ellen Kiel's airship.

Magnus was seen defending various locations in Gendarran Fields from Awakened attackers alongside members of the Lionguard in 1330 AE.

If killed Scarlet Briar
Let me get a look at you. I knew it-the Scarlet killer. You did a fine job on that platform. You saved this fair city and gave people hope. Thank you.

What's next for Lion's Arch?
I take what's left of my Lionguard and try to keep peace. If we can't make this place secure, we may as well abandon ship.

Scarlet's dead. How is the city not safe?
Between you and me, we're spread too thin. I find myself praying to the Spirits more and more that nothing else happens to Lion's Arch.

Good luck.

If didn't kill Scarlet Briar
Good to see another visitor. Don't mind if I squint a bit. I'm getting used to this damn eye patch. All things considered, trading my eye for Scarlet's death was worth it.

Scarlet took your eye?
When she attacked the city, I lost my eye. Never paid her back for that. Someone else took a blade to her throat before I could.

Too bad.
