Might and Magic Wiki

Dadeross is a character in Might and Magic VIII: Day of the Destroyer. He is the leader of the caravan that the Hero of Jadame was traveling with. He is also an axe master of the Ravage Roaming herd of minotaurs.


Dadeross's caravan was visiting the Dagger Wound Islands to trade with Brekish Onefang when a great volcano suddenly rose from the sea, causing a wave that washed away all bridges connecting the islands to each other and the mainland. Seeing an opportunity, the Regnan pirates attacked the lizardmen. Dadeross knew that the caravan couldn't get away, so he asked one of his guards (the Hero of Jadame) to deliver a letter to Elgar Fellmoon, guildmaster of the Merchant Guild, to let them know what was happening.

When the hero returned after the pirates were defeated, Dadeross told them that the caravan had been looted, and the carts damaged. He would spend the next season overseeing the repairs.

Dadeross once served under Lord Balthazar, renowned leader of the minotaurs of Ravage Roaming. When the party sought to retrieve the great leader's axe for Masul, Balthazar's son, they brought the weapon to Dadeross so that he could authenticate it.


The party must talk to Dadeross to finish the Find Dadeross quest, which starts the Deliver Dadeross' Letter quest. The party must then travel to Ravenshore to deliver the letter to Elgar Fellmoon.

The party must return to Dadeross to solve the Find the Axe of Balthazar quest, which promotes Minotaurs to Minotaur Lords.
