"Burn it! Burn the vampire!"
For other uses, see Dawnguard.

Members of the Dawnguard are radiant members of the Dawnguard. They are randomly-encountered and hostile to the Dragonborn if the Volkihar Clan are joined.


They often work in groups of three and can sometimes appear upon fast traveling to a new location. If the Dragonborn is (or was) a vampire, they will attack them on sight. They will continue to appear, despite the completion of the Dawnguard quest line, showing the continued tensions between the factions.


Typically, they wear a mixed set of heavy and light Dawnguard armor and are armed with a crossbow, and a Dawnguard war axe or warhammer.


  • A named Dawnguard soldier called Saliah can be randomly encountered.
