Stendarr's Aura is an Adept level Restoration spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard that creates an aura around the caster which damages nearby undead.


It can only be bought if the Dawnguard are sided with. Florentius Baenius at Fort Dawnguard will sell the tome after he is rescued in "Bolstering the Ranks."

It is, however, possible to buy the tome if the Volkihar Clan is joined by using a Calm or Pacify spell on Florentius Baenius during the quest "Destroying the Dawnguard." Once calmed, he can be spoken to and the tome may be bought from him.



  • The spell tome for Stendarr's Aura has a Destruction symbol on it, despite being a Restoration spell.
  • Because of the amount of light that the spell produces, it can be used as protection from the damage taken from standing in the dark areas of Apocrypha if Dragonborn is installed.
  • Some members of the Dawnguard, such as Isran, use this spell when in combat.
  • The Dawnguard Rune Shield,produces a similar effect as this spell whenever one blocks at the cost of stamina draining as they do.
