Berserkers are Nords who are hostile to the Nerevarine on sight. It is unknown where they originated from, and they only appear on Solstheim. Most wear little armor, most only wearing a Bear Helmet and a set of Bear Boots.
- It is possible to make them friendly, by using a calm spell. Once they are calmed, one can enter dialogue with them and bribe them or "admire" them until their disposition is above 100. Then they will not be hostile anymore. Until the Nerevarine has left the area for long enough, then a new hostile Berserker will spawn.
- Berserkers are possibly a reference to some of the real-world Celtic tribes, who would go into battle naked.
