"Seekers are servants of Hermaeus Mora. They are rarely seen outside his Oblivion realm of Apocrypha."
Loading Screens[src]

Seekers are Daedra that inhabit Hermaeus Mora's plane of Oblivion, Apocrypha. They typically serve Hermaeus Mora, although Miraak took control of some of them during his stay in the realm.


Seekers are found throughout Apocrypha, usually guarding tomes of forbidden knowledge. When idle, they usually conjure a book from thin air and begin to read.

Seekers may also be summoned by the Solstheim dragon priests (Ahzidal, Dukaan, and Zahkriisos).


Seekers usually carry two books and a scroll, and also have a chance to drop a Spell Tome.


Seekers may turn invisible, appearing as a blob of thick, black mist. They can be attacked in this state, though it should be noted they can also move very fast as well, effectively teleporting right next to the Dragonborn before reverting to their tentacled forms to attack.

On offense, Seekers use a spell called "Seeker Drain" which absorbs x points of Health, Magicka and Stamina for 10 seconds.

When enough damage is dealt to a Seeker, it can generate a clone of itself to aid it in battle, similar to the Shades of a Wispmother. Destroying the original will also destroy the clone.


High SeekerEdit

These are the seekers with Miraak when the Dragonborn first encounters him. They appear to be a higher level than the basic seeker, similar to the level difference between a Frost and Storm Atronach.

Seeker AspirantEdit

A relatively rare variant of Seeker.



  • There is a spell called Conjure Seeker used to summon a Seeker from Apocrypha. This spell also works in the said realm of Oblivion.
  • Seekers looks similar to Ascended Sleeper in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
  • A Seeker's appearance is loosely based on the Lovecraftian monsters from the Cthulhu myths.
  • Vampiric Grip does not work on them.


  •  PC   360   PS3  If a Seeker is disintegrated with the Disintegrate perk, the Seeker, when killed, will turn into an ash pile, without any loot.
