"You are my last challenge. Only you can send me to Sovngarde with honor. Make your preparations. When you are ready, come find me at my last vigil."
―Ebony Warrior[src]

The Ebony Warrior is a mysterious Redguard warrior clad in a full set of ebony armor. He can only be encountered at level 80 or higher.


The Ebony WarriorEdit

Upon reaching level 80, the Ebony Warrior will wait for the Dragonborn in one of the main cities in Skyrim. When spoken to, he explains he has beaten all previous foes and enemies, and his last challenge is to face the Dragonborn. Ultimately, his wish is for his soul to be sent to Sovngarde.

He requests the Dragonborn to meet him at his Last Vigil, a campsite located high in the Velothi Mountains, for a fight to the death.

This section should mention his style of combat during battle. Anything else will be removed.

The Ebony Warrior prefers melee combat in battle, using Frost Cloak and mage armor spells in conjunction with his sword and shield. Unlike common melee opponents, he is more aggressive in combat, frequently using power attacks and shield bashes. He also uses a level three Unrelenting Force when in close proximity.

He will give chase or switch to his bow if any player attempts to flee. Occasionally, his paralysis perks with his sword or bow render the Dragonborn immobile for several seconds.

He uses healing spells and will heal himself for a large amount if his health drops too low. He also possesses healing potions which he will use if he has taken enough damage.

One of the most potentially dangerous advantages the Ebony Warrior has in combat is the risk of damaging oneself upon striking him due to his Heavy Armor perk, Reflect Blows. The damage received is equal to that which was dealt and can sometimes be potentially fatal.

  • Despite not being a Nord, the Ebony Warrior wanted his soul to go to Sovngarde, just like Ria.
  • The Ebony Warrior is much taller than any normal characters, including Altmer. The only character that can match his height is Tsun of Sovngarde. The Ebony Warrior stands at a scale of 1.21 and Tsun at a scale of 1.34 in comparison to the Dragonborn, who stands at a scale of 0.95-1.08, depending on race and gender. His skin color is also noticeably darker than any of the other characters.
  • With a character level of 80, the Ebony Warrior is one of the highest leveled characters in the game, ranking below Karstaag who is a level 90, and both Arngeir and Miraak, who are tied at level 150.
  • Even though he possesses one-handed perks that affects War Axes and Maces, the Ebony Warrior does not make use of these perks as he only uses a sword for melee combat.
  • If the Dragonborn defeats the Ebony Warrior before going to Sovngarde during the quest "Sovngarde," the Ebony Warrior cannot be seen there.
