Shivering:Essential NPCs

A UESPWiki – Sua fonte de The Elder Scrolls desde 1995

This page contains a complete list of all NPCs who at some point during gameplay are "essential." What it means is that they cannot be killed - if you try, they'll merely be knocked unconscious. You can tell if an NPC is essential in-game, because their talk-icon will be a crown, instead of the standard talk icon. Most of these NPCs become killable later in the game. "*" means that the location of the NPC is only valid during or after the associated quest which is the first time they appear in the game.
