Durak is an Orsimer member of the Dawnguard. He joined the order to avenge the death of his two wives who were killed by vampires.



He can initially be met in one of the capital cities where he offers the Dragonborn a chance to join the Dawnguard, an order of vampire hunters.

He is later seen outside Fort Dawnguard practicing with his crossbow. When asked about the weapon he mentions 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 try out.

Upon completion of "Prophet," he becomes available as a follower. If the Dragonborn is not an Orc and 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 Celann and Ingjard. His specialties are Archery, Light Armor, One-Handed, and Block.


  • It is possible for Durak to get killed during "Kindred Judgment." To avoid this, it is recommended for the Dragonborn to face Harkon immediately and skip all the fights with other vampires as all of them will be killed upon the completion of the quest.
  • Durak in Russian (Дурак) means "fool."
