The Champion of Boethiah once existed to serve the mighty Daedric Prince, Boethiah. He has outlived his usefulness and uses the Ebony Mail bestowed upon him for his own pleasure rather than Boethiah's, which has angered the Daedric Prince. He now leads a group of Bandits out of Knifepoint Ridge and resides within Knifepoint Mine.
During the quest "Boethiah's Calling," the current champion's silent demise is called for to make room for a new, more worthy champion. Despite him getting killed for using the mail for his own pleasure, Boethiah said, after killing him, to the Dragonborn that they can do whatever they please with the mail. This is supposedly because the Daedric Prince has important matters to attend to, which require his/her full attention.
- The Champion of Boethiah is a rare type of NPC in that his appearance is randomly generated. This means he may be spawned with lighter or darker skin.
- If using a powerful enough Calm spell, unique dialogue can be initiated with him, revealing his reasoning for going rogue.
This section contains bugs related to Champion of Boethiah. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- If he goes near the other bandits, he can potentially damage them with the DoT poison effect from the Ebony Mail which could possibly, yet slowly, kill them.
- If he is alerted via an arrow shot near him he may begin to kill the other bandits.
