Charmed Vigilant is an enthralled member of the Vigilant of Stendarr. They are only encountered if the Dragonborn has joined the Dawnguard.


They can be found in Ruunvald during the quest "Bolstering the Ranks."


They are generally equipped with the standard equipment found on the Vigilants: Novice Robes of a School, Heavy Armor gauntlets, Heavy Armor boots, and a Steel or Iron One-Handed weapon.

The difference between the randomly encountered Vigilants and these enemies is that some of these Vigilants are equipped with a standard or Enhanced, regular or Dwarven crossbow, but only carry steel bolts. The variant of crossbow depends on the Dragonborn's progress in the quest "Ancient Technology."


In Ruunvald Excavation, if the Dragonborn sneaks through the entire site in order to confront Minorne, all of the Charmed Vigilants immediately die once Minorne is killed (although the huskies remain alive and hostile). There appears to be no way to save the Vigilants.
