Ghosts are characters or enemies in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. They are the spirits of the dead who have unfinished business on or bound to this mortal plane. Ghosts fight as any character would and are therefore incredibly varied opponents. However, unlike the ghosts of previous games, they lack their resistance to normal weapons and can be defeated with any attack.
Although they are not as common as in Oblivion, many hostile and non-hostile ghosts can be found in Skyrim.
