The Gray Fox is the leader of The Thieves Guild. Some believe that he has existed for over 300 years, while others refuse to believe that he exists at all and just brush him off as a myth. The Gray Fox is a quest giver for some Thieves Guild missions, notably the onces toward the end of the faction story-line.
The identity of The Gray Fox is given to the current wearer and owner of the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal, which is believed to have been stolen off the God Nocturnal herself by Emer Dareloth, the original Gray Fox and therefore founder of The Thieves Guild. The Gray Cowl of Nocturnal is known the carry a curse which strikes the wearer from history. This is admitted by The Gray Fox and found in various lore books throughout the game.
Until the player completes The Thieves Guild story-line, the Gray Fox is Corvus Umbranox. When the play completes the guild story line, Corvus passes the cowl onto the player, making them the new Guild Master of The Thieves Guild.
- The Gray Fox often says "Capital!" when expressing excitement or satisfaction.
- The Gray Fox's in-game name remains as 'The Gray Fox' until the player finds out his true identity. However, it is possible to find out his identity before then using Reverse Pickpocketing to remove the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal. This is also a way to get the cowl without having to complete The Thieves Guild quest line.
- The Gray Fox is voiced by Wes Johnson.
