"Die, Dawnguard!"
―The Traveler, when spoken to.

A Traveler is a vampire that can only be encountered randomly anywhere in Skyrim after siding with the Dawnguard during the quest "Bloodline."


He will casually approach the Dragonborn from afar, but will turn hostile when he gets close enough. In combat he has the ability to Summon Gargoyles and uses shock magic as the core of his arsenal. When his magicka runs dry he will switch to his dagger.


He typically wears Hooded Black Robes, Vampire Boots and Vampire Gauntlets. He also carries a leveled dagger with him that he uses when he runs out of magicka.


  • When the Traveler starts attacking, if any other characters are present, they all will immediately become hostile towards him.
  • If seen before turning hostile (i.e. with the Detect Dead spell), he can be attacked first and no bounty will be obtained.
  • If spoken to before turning hostile, the killing of the vampire or summoned gargoyle may charge the Ebony Blade.


This section contains bugs related to Traveler. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • The Traveler may not start attacking when close enough, instead he speaks the common vampire dialog (i.e. "I don't speak to my prey").
