The Shadow Legion is a division within the Imperial Legion. It consists of the Imperial Legion Battlemages, and was recorded to have used the Battlespire for training, prior to its destruction.[1] The Legion is further located at the Arcane University, where the Battlemages serve as guards.[2] During the events of Skyrim, two battlemages can be spotted at Helgen, fighting against Alduin. An ex-legion Battlemage, Madena, can be found in Dawnstar.


  • It is unknown if the Shadow Legion is considered a separate Legion.
