"Sybille Stentor has a grasp of magical theory that I would never have expected from a human. Even a Breton."

Sybille Stentor is a Breton vampire serving as the court wizard of the Blue Palace, in Solitude.


Sybille is the Court Wizard of Solitude in the Blue Palace and has served the Jarls there for over twenty years.[1] She first served Torygg's father, Istlod, and has continued to serve his family since. She had a hand in raising Torygg when he was very young.


She has an ominous habit involving Solitude prisoners. According to Ahtar, she periodically takes a "volunteer" from the Castle Dour dungeon. Melaran makes reference to this as well, noting that one does well to avoid being thrown in the dungeons when she is on a "bad day," as the headsman's axe, "...may not be the worst way that Solitude Jail prisoners die". While it is left unsaid, it stands to reason that this is her method of feeding.

Sybille is shown to be impatient, incredibly insightful, and maybe somewhat paranoid and sadistic. She seemed to be very loyal to the High King and his father, and stated she was proud to have raised him. While her status as a vampire might mean that it was simply a ruse to maintain her position, and thus her influence and possibly food supply from the prisoners in the dungeon, her affection seems genuine.

If the Dragonborn raises her disposition towards them, she begins to act noticeable kinder towards them, occasionally flirting and offering less harsh dialogue, such as calling saying "What do you need, handsome?" and "It's been a pleasure."


The Wolf QueenEdit

Varnius: "I swear to you, unnatural magics are coming from that cave! There are strange noises and lights! We need someone to investigate!"
Elisif: "Then we will immediately send out a legion to scour the cave and secure the town. Haafingar's people will always be safe under my rule."
Varnius: "Th... thank you, my Jarl. Thank you."
Sybille: "Your eminence, my scrying has suggested nothing in the area. Dragon Bridge is under imperial control. This is likely superstitious nonsense."
Falk: "Perhaps a more... tempered reaction... might be called for?"
Elisif: "Oh. Yes, of course you are right. Falk, tell Captain Aldis I said to assign a few extra soldiers to Dragon Bridge."
Varnius: "Thank you, Jarl Elisif. But about the cave..."
Falk: "I will have someone take care of the cave as well Varnius, you can rest easy. You're dismissed."

Expensive experimentsEdit

Sybille: "Steward, I will need the following reagents for my studies. Please see to them."
Falk: "Miss Stentor, these are quite expensive. I trust you know how limited the Hold's funds are at this time?"
Sybille: "Yes, and I'm also aware of how necessary my divinations and wards have been in the city's defense. My experiments are all I ask for in return."
Falk: "Very well. But I suspect her grace will not be pleased."
Sybille: "And? I've seen Jarls come and go. This one only became Jarl because her husband died. She'll be replaced in a matter of months."
Falk: "Miss Stentor, watch your tongue in the Jarl's court!"
Sybille: "On threat of what, exactly? This city wouldn't run without me! Now if you'll excuse me, my work awaits."

Tax collectingEdit

Falk: "It's nearly time to collect taxes on your properties here in the city, Bryling. We'll need to visit each home for an assessment."
Bryling: "Is it that time again already? Very well, let's meet this evening and make the arrangements."
Sybille: "Oh, well done. Very subtle."
Bryling: "I beg your pardon?"
Sybille: "Oh, I'm sorry, did I imply that you'd be meeting for purposes other than court business? You must forgive me."
Falk: "Hold your tongue, wizard, or you're likely to lose it."
Sybille: "I should very much like to see you try it, my dear steward."
Bryling: "Stop it, both of you. You're acting like children."


  • "Be quick.  I have little patience for mundane concerns."
  • "I have so very many ways to deal with people, very few of them pleasant."
  • "You're trying my patience."
  • "Surely you have something better to do."
  • "Stay guarded. You never know what could be out there."


She is relatively insignificant and is not connected to any quests save for the order to eradicate a vampire lair.

If Sybille is killed somehow, she is replaced by Melaran as Court Wizard. Sometimes, he comments on the Dragonborn's involvement in her replacement.


After downloading The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard, her appearance changes slightly to match the new textures of vampires; this can be seen by looking at her eyes. She will never reference her condition or speak to the Dragonborn about it, although the Dragonborn may comment on how young she looks to which she will reply that she has simply "aged well".


She offers Expert-level Destruction training and also sells various spell tomes, robes, and other mage accouterments.


Kill the VampireEdit

Dispatch the vampires hiding out in Pinemoon Cave. After completing this miscellaneous quest, many of the things in the Blue Palace become labeled as "take" rather than "steal".


  • Oddly enough, she doesn't recognize the Dragonborn's vampirism, as she doesn't have any unique dialogue options concerning that particular topic.
  • Like all vampires and consequently the undead, she does not show the effects of the Detect Life spell and drops vampire dust on death.
  • She is resistant to the Restoration spell Healing Hands, as are all vampires.
  • Even though she is a vampire herself, she will still attack the Dragonborn if they are on stage four of vampirism and if Dawnguard is not installed.
  • Despite being a trainer in Destruction, when the leader of Pinemoon Cave is killed for her, she gives a one-point boost to Illusion.
  • Completing The Wolf Queen Awakened will cause Sybille to walk away from the throne room and into her nearby room. She will henceforth sleep in her bed and not stir from it except for the brief sequence when Viarmo recites King Olaf's poem during Tending the Flames.
  •  PC  If you converted her into follower by Console Command, she does not move around until The Wolf Queen Awakened is completed.
  •  PC  She also has a unique faction called "Sybille Stentor" which is exclusive to her.
