The Northwatch Guards are Thalmor soldiers that patrol the areas of Northwatch Keep in northwest Skyrim. They guard a captured group of Talos worshippers as well as Thorald Gray-Mane, who was captured in battle.
They use One-Handed weapons in combat, often in conjunction with Flames. They can be difficult to defeat in battle, due to a high amount of health, so it is wise to use sneak or range based attacks. At higher levels, they wear glass armor, as well as using glass weapons.
