As a follower, the fan has limited uses. He refuses to fight in combat, and will instead run and try to hide until it's over. This can prove fatal as he may run into more enemies and still be killed.
When he is not following the hero (or waiting for them to return) he can be found at the arena waiting to join the Grand Champion.
- "Here? Right here? What about, say... over there? No? Right here? All right then, you're the Grand Champion! Whatever you say!"
- "By Azura, by Azura, by Azura, it's the Grand Champion! I can't believe it's you! Standing here, next to me!"
- "Aw gee! You sure? Okay, well, I'll be hanging around the Arena grounds if you need someone to worship the ground you walk on. Bye!"
- In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, during the Dark Brotherhood questline in Skyrim, the player will come across a book entitled "Cicero's Journal Vol. 1", which belongs to the assassin Cicero. In this journal is a detailed report of an assassination contract where Cicero disguised himself as an Arena fan in the Imperial City, in an attempt to accompany, and then assassinate, the Grand Champion while escorting him through the forest. This is a reference to the Adoring Fan.
- The Adoring Fan will always take the shortest way back to the Arena if told to go away. Even if this involves jumping off cliffs and mountains like Dive Rock. He will always survive the fall though.
