Kyne's Peace is a dragon shout in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Effects[edit | edit source]
Using one word of the shout will cause all animals to stop attacking or fleeing until they are attacked. At two words, the animals become less responsive to any attacks, taking another two or three hits before retaliating. At three words, animals become almost completely unresponsive to attacks.
It is a useful shout that should not be dismissed or overlooked. Without it, the Dragonborn is forced to kill any aggressive wild animals they happen to cross paths within the wilderness unless they have the option of fleeing the scene. Even the first word alone is often enough to stop most attacks, subsequently giving them time to get away from the animal or animals. However, using this shout against, for example, wolves attacking the chickens, cows, or people living at any of the homesteads will only temporarily solve the problem. This is so because the wolves (and other carnivores, presumably) will stay in the same general area they were in when they were shouted at, and once the shout wears off, they will resume their attacks on the homestead. This shout is best used against aggressive animals found on the plains or forests to stop their aggression long enough for the Dragonborn to make an escape. It can also be used to calm creatures that have been enthralled by spriggans.
