Volsung was a Dragon Priest during the Merethic Era and served the dragons with loyalty and fear like many of the other Dragon Priests. Like the other Dragon Priests of Skyrim he didn't believe in the powers of Miraak, until he saw them himself. Volsung served under Otar until the Dragon War broke out and he was killed by Nordic warriors atop the Throat of the World. He awakes when Alduin returns to Nirn from the currents of time.
Upon his defeat, Volsung drops the Volsung Mask - one of the eight mysterious Dragon Masks located throughout Skyrim. Collecting all eight masks is a requirement for the unmarked quest to restore the Dragon Priest Shrine.
- Völsung was the great-grandson of Odin in Norse Mythology. One of the sagas from ancient Germanic mythology is named Völsunga saga, after the Völsung clan.
- If the Dragonborn uses Unrelenting Force shout on Volsung's coffin it will cause him to be pushed out of it, rather than raise in his scripted animation.
- Volsung's "Command Daedra" spell is much stronger than Dragonborn's, even if level 81 is already reached upon encountering the Dragon Priest. As of patch 1.9, however, it may be possible to best his spell
