Storm Thrall is a Master-level Conjuration spell in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


When cast, Storm Thrall permanently summons a storm atronach. The atronach will follow and defend its master until banished, killed, or turned.

  • It may not show up in "Active Effects," while flame thrall and frost thrall do.
  • It may summon a storm atronach (no health regeneration) instead of a storm thrall.
