Upon gaining entrance to the Hollow from Haskill, the Vestige encounters multiple Scamps and Dremora. After defeating them they then walk up the stairs in the final area and fights Gutsripper. Upon killing him, the Vestige confronts his master Sheogorath about Shalidor's books.
- His name, Gutsripper, is a combination of "guts" and "ripper," referring to as how he rips the guts of his enemy.
- Sheogorath referring to him as a puppy, speaking to it in an adoring voice. Upon the Vestige kills it, Sheogorath calls them a "puppy-killer" in an angry tone.
