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.
- When the Traveler starts attacking, if any other NPCs 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.
- 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").
