Not to be confused with Abbot Durak.

Durak is an Orsimer ranger and member of the Dawnguard. According to dialogue, he joined the order to avenge the deaths of his two wives, who were killed by vampires.



He is initially met by the Dragonborn as a random encounter. He will appear in one of the major cities of Skyrim, where he offers them a chance to join the Dawnguard, a recently reestablished ancient order of vampire hunters.

Later on, he is seen outside of Fort Dawnguard, practicing his aim with a crossbow. When asked about the bow, he mentions that it is common for people not to be familiar with it, as it is a Dawnguard specialty. However, he will give the Dragonborn a standard crossbow and some steel bolts to practice.

Upon the completion of the quest "Prophet," he becomes available as a follower. If the Dragonborn is not an Orc, and also hasn't become Blood-Kin through some other means, he will also send word to Orc strongholds throughout Skyrim, so that they allow the Dragonborn entry.


As a follower, Durak has no level cap, as with fellow Dawnguard followers Celann and Ingjard. His specialties are Archery, Light Armor, One-Handed, and Block.


  • It is possible for Durak to be killed during the quest "Kindred Judgment." To avoid this, it is recommended for the Dragonborn to face Harkon immediately, and skip as many the fights with other vampires as possible.

  • Was Durak an Orc chief?

    • That's what I originally thought, but stronghold orcs usually have their stronghold's name in theirs ( like Ghorbash (the Iron Hand) gro-Dushn...
    • I thought that too, but he could have just as easily had two separate wives at different times, and lived outside of a tribe, like Ghorza in Markarth.
  • Dead DUrak
