|Essential||Yes - if the Dawnguard is joined
Always - if the vampires are joined
Feran Sadri is a Dunmer vampire residing in Castle Volkihar. His wide upturned nose is distinctly bat-like. He serves as the castle alchemist and is willing to trade with the Dragonborn if the Volkihar clan is joined. However, if the Dragonborn joins the clan and is cured of vampirism afterwards, it will no longer be possible to trade with Feran or receive his quests unless the Dragonborn becomes a vampire again.
Feran is a strong proponent of magic and appreciates the fact that living in the castle gives him access to magic he had no idea existed before. Like many others within the castle, the politics of the court bore him. He is a harsh mentor to lower members of the court and can often be heard berating his assistant Ronthil.

Feran: "I don't want to hear about it. I want what I asked for."
Ronthil: "Yes, Feran. Of course. I'll see to it."
Ronthil: "Can I assist you? You know I live to serve."
Feran: "No, I don't need anything right now. Please stop asking."
Ronthil: "Yes, of course."
- "Life here has many advantages, don't you agree?"
- "Politics bore me terribly, but they're a fact of life here."
- "Living here, I have access to magic I couldn't possibly imagine before."
- "Quite bold, to return here as a mortal. Some will take offence. You really ought to become one of us again. Bad for your health, otherwise." - If cured of Vampirism.
- "I'm sure your reward will be great for ensuring our Lord's success" - During Kindred Judgment, if the vampires are joined.
