Vampire Cattle are slaves found inside Castle Volkihar.
They are typically Nord men and women who are being used mainly as a food source by the members of Harkon's court. Most can be found locked in cages in the dungeon of the castle, but others can be seen serving food and drinks in the dining room. Most cannot normally speak, they can only mumble, it can be speculated that this is the result of a vampire spell.
If the Dragonborn has joined Harkon's court, they will be available to use as a source of vampiric feeding to sate the bloodlust, however doing so will revert several vampiric attribues to their base level.
- Despite the threats given by the Rargal Thrallmaster, the bite power attack may be used to quickly level up the Vampire Lord, though this will kill the Vampire Cattle in the process.
- If the player sides with Dawnguard and kills all the members of the court before dealing with Harkon, Vampire Cattles will no longer be present.
- Repeatedly attempting to speak to a Vampire Cattle lying on the dining table in the castle will cause their groaning dialogue to play over itself.
