Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Halldir's clones' elements can be easily identified. The fire clone will look as if it were a ghost on fire, the shock clone will look as if it were a ghost being electrified around the body, etc.
  • If the Dragonborn kills Halldir with one hit and he can't summon his clones, they will remain in a small underground room. The Dragonborn can get their attention by using shouts like Throw Voice, but they can only be killed by passing through the walls using the console.
  • Halldir is unique in the fact that he is the only draugr that uses fire and shock spells, as standard draugr spellcasters utilize frost-based magic only.
