Hell Hounds are demonic canines Summoned by powerful beings, such as high level Mages, to perform a service, like guarding dungeons or attacking foes.

These creatures have the appearance of a black wolf with glowing red eyes. Hell Hounds are hazardous monsters who can cause massive damage with their long range Fireball or with their jaws at close combat.

Hell Hounds are between ghouls and ghosts in terms of strength. Such dangerous creature can only be defeated by a well prepared or a high level opponent. The effect Resist Fire will be greatly useful when fighting Hell Hounds, it comes in form of potion and spell.

During the quest Fang Lair, Hell Hounds make their first appearance as sub-bosses on the last room.


  • Due to their description, Hell Hounds may be Daedric in origin.
  • Hell Hounds can disintegrate themselves shooting their Fireball on close objects.
