Alpha Wolves are unused creatures in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

General statsEdit

The alpha wolf has 22 health and is a larger, more powerful version of a regular wolf.




  • Alpha Wolves do not naturally appear anywhere in Skyrim and can only be summoned by the use of console commands, as E3demoMarker must be enabled for it to spawn in its original location, near Embershard Mine. They are, however, depicted in Skyrim's loading screens.
