Aura Whisper is a Dragon Shout in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This Shout functions similarly to a Detect Life spell. Unlike Detect Life, this ability also allows the user to detect the presence of Animunculi, undead, and daedra. The shout can detect dragons, however it is barely visible as they have been resurrected by Alduin, and do not qualify as Living per-se, unlike the Draugr who never seem to have died, and have only slept in their tombs. It is possible to see a dragon's Aura by stopping movement, and looking through a darkened or shadowed surface to see their faint glow (this works especially well at Night). The range is also far greater than that of Detect Life. However, friend and foe are not differentiated.
The base duration of the shout is ten seconds, and each additional word increases the duration by another ten seconds.
- Though this is a whisper, using it near enemies will alert them to the Dragonborn's presence, but only slightly, much less than other shouts or the detect life spell. Detection while using the shout follows rules similar to spellcasting.
- This can be mended using the Illusion Tree's perk Quiet Casting.
- This is the only way to detect Animunculi, in the base game.
- Allows detection of enemies that are not yet active. Animunculi and Falmer who are still within their structures and waiting to ambush.

For a short time, this Shout allows the Dragonborn to see an aura around all living and undead creatures, even through walls. This makes Aura Whisper Great for thieves, archers and assassins. The Shout is silent, so it won't cause a sound that would cause enemies to detect it. However, guards will still go and ask the Dragonborn to stop shouting if used in cities.
- Occasionally, enemies may load after the Shout is called (if the Dragonborn is moving quickly), and may display their Aura initially. Causing enemies that were not visible by the shout to attack as you alert them, having not known they were there.
Sometimes using Aura whisper will make the Dragonborn's eyes glow like a
