The Bow of Shadows is a legendary artifact said to have been forged by the Daedric Prince Nocturnal. It was granted to a legendary Ranger, Raerlas Ghile, for a mission that he ultimately failed, but before he did, he took down scores of his enemies. It is rumored that the Second Era Dunmer assassin Dram once wielded this weapon.
In The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, this bow is in the possession of Goris the Maggot King, a Dunmer Necromancer living in Venim Ancestral Tomb, which is located slightly north of the Ashlander Zainab Camp.
- Tamrielic Lore makes reference to a Dunmer assassin named Dram, who had come to possess this weapon. Dram was a character in The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard.
- The Bow of Shadows is wielded by Dram in Redguard throughout the game. It can be obtained via console commands and is called "Dram's Bow".
- In The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind this bow has enchantment called "dram's will".
