Alaric is a Knight character in the Heroes of Might and Magic V expansions Hammers of Fate and Tribes of the East.


An excessively fanatical priest of Elrath with delusions of grandeur, Alaric was easily seduced by Biara-as-Isabel and her promises of power and glory. Forsaking Elrath's worship - even if not entirely realising that he did so - Alaric has been drawn further and further into Biara's web of persecution, murder and paranoia.OffBck

Alaric was the priest of Flammschrein who got promoted to Archbishop when Saint Isabel formed the Red Church. Being very loyal to the queen, Alaric began his inquisition with Freyda and Laszlo. On their quest to defeat all rebels, Alaric gave a emotional support to Freyda, who had to slay her uncle, Lord Caldwell. Once Freyda reached Tor Hrall, Laszlo attacked the dwarves. While Freyda left, Laszlo continued to serve the queen, bringing Andrei, Nicolai's cousin, to the queen.

Afterwards, Alaric managed to slay Quroq, the orcs' chieftain. When he came to report this to the queen, Arantir freed Isabel's soul and the false queen, Biara, lost her illusion. This caused Alaric to go mad, knowing he served a demonic queen, and ran away. Eventually, he encountered Gotai and was offered a honorable death. Mistaking Khengi, the orcs' shaman, for a demon, Alaric killed the goblin. Gotai called upon his forces, crushing Alaric's forces and slew Alaric for this murderous act, ending his inquisition.
