As Dragons are resurrected across Skyrim by Alduin, the Dragonborn can interrupt the resurrection by attacking the rising dragon. This causes the dragon to stop forming properly, resulting in a skeletal dragon. Being purely made up of bone, they cannot fly, and instead of the resistances of a living dragon, a skeletal dragon has the vulnerabilities of the undead; its total health is only half that of a regular level 20 dragon. It can be easily dispatched using fire-based attacks.
A rather resilient skeletal dragon appears in the College of Winterhold quest The Staff of Magnus, serving as the guardian of Labyrinthian. It appears in a very large room with four to eight skeletons and uses the Fire and Frost Breath shouts. The skeletal dragon does not have a dragon soul or dragon scales (including dragon heartscales), but will drop up to six dragon bones; aside from Paarthurnax, this is the only dragon that drops this many bones at one time.
