"I am Sahloknir! Hear my Voice and despair!"

Sahloknir (SAhLOKNIr) is a unique named dragon and a supporting antagonist in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Local legends claim this is the dragon slain by the Nord hero Jorg Helmbolg in the First Era.[1]


Sahloknir is encountered during the quest A Blade in the Dark, where he is resurrected by Alduin, just to be killed again.


  • "Alduin, thuri! Boaan tiid vokriiha suleyksejun kruziik?" 
    • Literal translation: Alduin, my-overlord! Has-flown time unkill power-of-king ancient?
    • Game files' translation: Has the time arrived (flown) to restore (unkill) your ancient dominion (power-of-king)?
  • "I am Sahloknir! Hear my Voice and despair!"
  • "It's to be a real fight, then. Good!"
  • "My lord Alduin requires your death! I am glad to oblige him."
  • "I see that mortals have become arrogant while I slept."
  • "My Voice has been silent for too long!"
  • "Hiding will not save you!"
  • "Dovahkiin, your voice is no match for mine!"
  • "Your voice is strong... for a mortal."
  • "Come and face me, then!
  • "I do not fear you, Dovahkiin!



  • His name means 'Phantom Sky Hunt'.
  • He can breathe both Fire Breath and Frost Breath.
  • Sahloknir is level dependent; If the Dragonborn is past level 20, Sahloknir will spawn as a Blood Dragon, and will appear as even stronger forms as the Dragonborn's level grows. (PC and Xbox 360 confirmed).
  • Miraak can steal Sahloknir's soul after he has been defeated.


  • He may rise from the ground already covered in his flesh.
  • If killed with Mehrunes' Razor as he rises, the Dragonborn gets his soul, but his skin burns during his resurrection by Alduin.
  • If Sahloknir is killed before his flesh comes back he will continue to regenerate his flesh, but the Dragonborn still gets his soul leaving a fully fleshed Sahloknir dead on the ground. This can be fixed by the Dragonborn searching the dragon, instantly skeletalizing him.
