For other uses, see Uderfrykte.

The Udefrykte is a unique troll found during the Dark Brotherhood quest "The Cure for Madness" at the Dawnstar Sanctuary in an ice cave. It is a reference to The Udyrfrykte from Bloodmoon who was found in a similar area as well as the Uderfrykte Matron in Oblivion, though the spelling of the name is slightly different. The troll has large olive green eyes as well as dark green hair and gray-purple skin.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

"The big ugly beast - a different story. He'd eat me if he could, but to bind me, grind me, he'd need to find me. And Cicero will make sure that does not happen."
  • Like all trolls, the Udefrykte is weak to fire, so fire Destruction spells work well.
  • Stealth is another alternative; using stealth attacks or moving undetected to the chest will also uncover three fire attack scrolls.
  • Archery combined with stealth can deal massive damage quickly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Udefrykte looks like a normal troll but its eyes are bright golden green instead of black. It also has greenish hair and purple skin, instead of a grey hide.
  • Udefrykte is much stronger than the average troll, being able to kill a Horker, which many trolls fail to do.
  • The Norwegian words "Udyr" and "Frykt" translate to "Beast" and "Fear," respectively.
  • According to Cicero, the cave which the creature inhabits was not an original part of the Sanctuary but rather a "forced addition" implying that it was created by Udefrykte itself.
