Nightingale Sentinels are dead Nightingales, since all Nightingales are bound by oath to defend the Twilight Sepulcher after their death. During the Pilgrim's Path quest the Dragonborn encounters them in a confused state wherein they do not recognize the Dragonborn as a fellow Nightingale; this is due to the closing of Ebonmere when the Skeleton Key was removed by Mercer Frey.

In appearance they are much different from regular Ghosts, having a purple/orange glow to them resembling that of somebody coming in or out of Invisibility, or the Invisibility Spell effect itself. They are enshrouded in a mist like other ghosts, but unlike that of the ghosts, it is in a matching color.

When they die they leave behind a blue pile labeled Ghostly Remains. In appearance, the pile of remains is like that of most Ghosts and Ice Wraiths.
