TESV Nightingale Strife

Nightingale Strife is a power awarded to the Dragonborn by Nocturnal in the final Thieves Guild quest, Darkness Returns. Stepping on the Full Moon platform confers this power.

The Dragonborn can return to the Ebonmere to replace it with the powers Shadowcloak of Nocturnal or Nightingale Subterfuge, but only once a day.


Instantly absorb 100 points of Health from the target. The blast will pass through the first target and hit others, lowering their health, but can only heal the Dragonborn by a maximum of 100 health. As a Power, it can only be used once per day.
