The Last Dragonborn

When misrule takes its place at the eight corners of the world
When the Brass Tower walks and Time is reshaped
When the thrice-blessed fail and the Red Tower trembles
When the Dragonborn Ruler loses his throne, and the White Tower falls
When the Snow Tower lies sundered, kingless, bleeding
The World-Eater wakes, and the Wheel turns upon the Last Dragonborn.

Canonically a male Nord and resident of the land of Skyrim, the Dragonborn was arrested and intended to be executed for attempting to flee the country of Skyrim, which was then under Thalmor (a group of several elves) rule. During his execution, he was saved by a stroke of luck when the Nordic God of Destruction, Alduin (Dragontongue: Destroy Devour Master) attacked the city where the execution was taking place. Taking advantage of the situation, the Dragonborn escaped from the city and made his way to the town of Whiterun, to explain what was happening. As he arrived, he heard about one of the guard towers nearby being attacked by a strange creature. Deciding to give his assistance, he ventured forth with the Jarl's guard and the Jarl's personal bodyguard to the scout tower a short distance from the town.

There, they discovered a slaughter, wherein all guards save for one were killed by what appeared to be an enormous lizard with wings. The Dragonborn assisted the guards in defeating the creature, only to be surprised when the dragons corpse began burning away in the light, energy flowing out to surround the Dragonborn. An echo rang out across the land, heard across the land, from Riften to Markarth, a powerful voice, calling out... "Dovahkiin"! The ancient Greybeards, teachers of the way of the Voice, had called for him in the ancient language of Dragons. In their ancient sanctuary of High Hrothgar, atop Skyrims highest mountain, he learnt of his dragon blood, and they taught him to use the powerful language to bend reality simply by speaking.

Using the power of the Dragon Tongue, as well as his own abilities, the Dragonborn fought his way across many perils (from fighting against demons and their masters to stopping several wars from beginning in Tamriel), before finally confronting Alduin himself in the Nord Afterlife. He fought a difficult and nearly impossible battle, before finally slaying the dreaded monster and freeing all of Skyrim from its influence. He took to wandering Skyrim after this, content with his actions but seeking another purpose for his life. He ended the Civil war between the Rebel Stormcloaks and the Imperial Empire, he joined the companions, the most renowned warriors in all the land. He became master of the arcane College of Winterhold, save countless lives and.. and took a great many. He may have partaken in more nefarious deeds, he may well have sold his soul to any number of Daedric Princes, as well as becoming the leader of the Theives guild, as well as Listener of the Dark Brotherhood, the most cruel and feared assassin in Tamriel... but whatever paths the Dragonborn chose, his power, skill and determination were enough to become unparalleled, the greatest warrior of his age.

Powers, Abilities and Weaponry:

Due to it being an open-world game, the Dragonborn's possible skills are legendarily large, although for the most part they adopted a "jack-of-all-trades" approach to life, suspecting that they would need their skills equally for survival.

The Dragonborn makes use of several schools of magic, including the abilities of Alteration (which grant defensive bonuses, as well as paralysis), Destruction (fire, lightning, ice magic), Conjuration (Summoning and Necromancy, as well as infinite weapon generation), Illusion (Control emotional responses and turn invisible), Restoration (Healing magic), and Enchanting (Crafting ability). They have an adequate usage for each of these abilities, although stronger abilities can be difficult to cast rapidly.

The Dragonborn is also a weaponsmaster, capable of using the following weapon types: Daggers, Maces, Swords, Axes, Battleaxes, Greatswords, Warhammers, Bows and Crossbows. The Dragonborn generally carries one weapon of each type to fight against multiple kinds of opponents, and changes their combat style as need be. All of the Dragonborn's weapons are made of the game's strongest crafting material: Dragonbone, which has been shown to cut through almost any armor and withstand much punishment. A list of equipment that the Dragonborn has obtained throughout the plot can be found here.

The Dragonborn's armor is also surprisingly powerful; Canonically using lighter armors, their strongest in the class is Dragonscale Mail. Light, hardy and flexible, it allows the Dragonborn to retain all of their mobility while still being able to stand toe to toe with dragons of old. Their shield is commonly a buckler, also made of Dragonscale Mail. This well-sized shield can take immense punishment, and requires little skill to use. The spiked shield makes for both excellent offense and defense.

Considering the Dragonborn's combat skills, they vary greatly depending on weapon style; the Dragonborn tends to make use of either a "flurry of blows" style when dual wielding, a simple Sword and Shield fighting style, and then a large, sweeping combat style for heavier, two handed weapons. Their archery is so skilled that they can easily fire while moving, although their accuracy is reduced due to mobility. The Dragonborn is also comfortable regardless of what weapon combination they use, and can easily dual wield anything from twin swords to mace and dagger, mixing and matching as need be.

The Dragonborn also carries quite a bit of extra equipment, including powerful Dragonbone Arrows that can pierce most armors like paper. They also carry several potions for safety's sake, including mana and health potions, stamina restoration and general resistances. The Dragonborn even has a few vials of poison for their weapons and arrows, just in case.

But among the greatest of the Dragonborn's skills is the Dragon Shout (or Thu'um): The Dragonborn can use the language of the dragons to cast extremely powerful and ancient magic. These Shouts Include:

  • Raan Mir Tah (Animal Alleigance Pack): Summons wild animals to the area to fight for the Dragonborn.

Despite all these incredible abilities, powers and feats, The Last Dragonborn is surprisingly fragile underneath all their armor. They can take hits and die like any other mortal, and their reserves for mana and stamina for battle are limited, requiring rests and pauses, sometimes even in the middle of combat. And their Dragon Shouts, while powerful, require time before they can be used effectively again, ranging from rapid re-use (such as with Fus Ro Dah) to a full day of recovery (Such as with Mul Qah Diiv). And any enchantments his weapons may hold wear off after a number of hits, needing to be refilled with soul gems.


  • Shout cool downs may (or may not) be a Game Mechanic, as other enemies who utilize the Thu'um do not have this cooldown, and nothing in Elder Scrolls Lore supports one. It is simply the language of dragons.
  • The Last Dragonborn absorbed the soul of Miraak, along with his power. According to Elder Scrolls Lore, Miraak battled a dragon priest, and the shouts were powerful enough to break Solstheim off the mainland and force it out to sea.
