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 has not 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.



This section contains bugs related to Durak. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • 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.
  • If Durak is killed after he is met during the random encounter and the Dragonborn arrives at Fort Dawnguard afterwords, his corpse will be found lying on the ground outside of the Fort.
    • The corpse of Durak may stand upright and remain still. To fix this, reload the save.

  • Was Durak an Orc chief?

    • 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.
    • That would explain how he can tell other strongholds you're cool
  • Dead DUrak
