* EvilCounterpart: To the [[PlayerCharacter Dovahkiin]], as a Dragonborn who ''could'' have defeated Alduin and was called upon to help do it, but instead used his powers to try and stake his own claim to world conquest. [[spoiler:Not to mention he made a deal with a Daedric Prince for power.]] The end of the ''Dragonborn'' trailer hearkens back to the ''Skyrim'' trailer, only with Miraak absorbing three Dragon souls, while a DarkReprise of the main theme plays with the lyrics twisted to reflect his menace. He even lampshades it.

** He can also be seen as the culmination of Arngeir and Paarthunax's warnings about the Dragonborn's innate draconic desire to conquer and the dangers of using the Thu'um for selfish purposes. .

* BullyingADragon: His attempted rebellion to overthrow of the Dragons during the Merethic Era failed when Vahlok led an army against him. Despite slaying countless dragons before finally falling, he was saved from death when [[spoiler: Hermaeus Mora stepped in and transported him to Apocrypha]].
** DoNotTauntCthulhu: Unfortunately, he failed to learn [[AesopAmnesia any kind of lesson]] from his crippling defeat and eventually [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder began to plot]] against [[spoiler: Mora]] as well. [[spoiler: Naturally, it doesn't go well for him.]]

* CompellingVoice: His "Bend Will" Shout [[spoiler:which he learned from Hermaeus Mora]]. The first word lets him bend the earth and animals to his will. The second word lets him bend mortals to his will. The full shout lets him command ''dragons''.

* TheDreaded: As the first Dragonborn, all the dragons feared him due to not even knowing ''what the hell he was'' yet. In fact, after Vahlok succeeded in defeating Miraak, the dragons were so grateful that they praised him as a hero.

* TheFaceless: What with being a Dragon Priest and all, he wears a mask. [[spoiler: And even after death, we still don't get to see what he looks like because his skin burns away like a dragon's as you absorb his soul.]]

* OneManArmy: You know all those dragon skeletons around his temple? It's heavily implied he killed all of them on his own.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Averted; he's actively trying to stop the player by rounding up the souls of any dead dragons, and therefore limiting their ability to learn shouts. This also makes it difficult for the player to learn Miraak's Dragon Aspect and Bend Will unless they have a surplus of souls absorbed before they meet him, and without the latter you cannot even get to Miraak's lair.

* {{Pride}}: He's extremely arrogant, looking down on you as a "false" Dragonborn despite everything you may have accomplished. If you confront him before completing the main quest, his reaction to meeting another Dragonborn is "so you've killed a few dragons, am I supposed to be impressed?" Post-main quest, he comments that he could have easily killed Alduin himself, but [[OptOut chose another path]]. He also considers himself above servitude to anyone, whether it be dragons or [[spoiler:Hermaeus Mora. His attempts to double-cross the latter, however, earn him a very ''[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice painful]]'' reality check.]]

* TheStarscream: Was once a Dragon Priest, until he decided that he'd rather devour dragons' souls than work for them. [[spoiler:He also tries to betray Hermaeus Mora. Key word: tries.]]
* SuperMode: His Dragon Aspect shout, which takes the form of a draconic aura and allows him to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin tap into his dragon heritage]].
* SympathyForTheHero: Possibly. If you have him at low health, and have killed a certain number of dragons, he'll have this to say: [[spoiler:"Beware. Hermaeus Mora will betray you... as he has me."]] Could he really be warning the Dovahkiin what victory will cost them? It certainly sounds like it.

* YourSoulIsMine: He's a Dragonborn, so this is his key power. He even steals the souls of the dragons you kill in Solstheim before you can absorb them. [[spoiler:He also wants to absorb ''your'' draconic soul. After Hermaeus Mora kills him, you consume his soul. He even gets turned into a skeleton like other dragons.]] He uses this to heal himself in the fight against him by summoning one of his dragons and draining its soul for full health, almost invoking the trope by name in the process - the draconic words he shouts directly translate to "Spirit-is-mine-devour."

A Bosmer vampire that serves as Feran's assistent and general goods merchant for the Clan.

* AffablyEvil: After Serana, he is the most friendly vampire in Castle Volkihar and he genuinely wants to be helpful and useful.
* ButtMonkey: Ronthil is disrespected by everyone in Castle Volkihar, he doesn't even sleep in his own coffin like other vampires, but in a dark corner.
* NewMeat: Its implied he is the most recently turned member of their coven and as such he is treated with disdain by other vampires.

* BadassGrandpa: When he says he could have taken on Alduin, he isn't exaggerating. He's one of the most powerful characters fought in-game, using Shouts the Last Dragonborn either lacks (Bend Will, Dragon Aspect). He's one of the oldest characters encountered in the series, dating back to before the Dragon War. Also, under his mask, he's a grizzled older man covered in scorch marks.

* SecretArt: His Devour Soul Shout, which rips out a dragon's soul and kills it instantly. It's also the only Shout with four words.



* WrongContextMagic: Miraak possesses the "Devour Soul" Shout, which instantly kills dragons and absorb their souls. This ability uses ''4 words'' instead of 3[[note]]5 if you consider that he always precedes the Shout with the name of the dragon he's using it on[[/note]], highlighting both its ghastly nature and the benefits Miraak reaped from his partnership with Mora.
