The following is a complete list of humanoid enemies found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, as well as all of its official add-ons :

Afflicted of Peryite

Main article: Afflicted


Main article: Bandits

Bandits are hostile, weapon-wielding groups that attack on sight. Where there are Bandit caves or camps, there is usually a Chief to keep chaos in order. Chiefs are very strong leaders of Bandit gangs, often wearing mid-level armor.


Forsworn are a group of tribal-looking hostiles, fighting for the ‘old ways’. They are the original inhabitants of the Reach. Many can be found in the company of Hagravens.


Ghosts are undead spectral appearing spirits of ancient Nordic warriors and Nightingales, and as such, are usually found in ruins and caves. Nightingales are specific to the Twilight Sepulcher


Mages are humanoids who use magic spells or staves as their primary weapon. Most often they are without armor, wearing just robes and common boots. They also tend to be equipped with a small, secondary weapon, such as a dagger. Mages encountered in the wilds of Skyrim are often Dunmer, Altmer or Breton.

Penitus Oculatus


Main article: Vampire

Vampires are humans who have been bitten by another vampire in order to gain their disease: Vampirism. Vampirism can be cured, but is quite hard. Vampires have black or red eyes and do not age, as they stay at the age they were bitten at by another vampire (i.e. Babette in the Dawnstar Sanctuary, who was bitten by a vampire at age ten, and has appeared that way ever since. Although, she has the mind of an adult, and has actually lived over two hundred years).


Witches, who normally follow Hagravens, are human female mages who usually use Frost or Shock spells and wear black or blue mage robes.
