The Volkihar Clan is a powerful vampire tribe said to be from eastern Skyrim. Legend paints the Volkihar as paranoid and cruel. It is said their breath could freeze their victims' blood within their veins. Some believe they live beneath the ice of remote and haunted lakes, never venturing into the world of men except to feed. In reality, they are quite similar to their Cyrodiilic cousins. They are known to seamlessly blend into society and prefer to feed on sleeping victims.
The bloodline began with Lord Harkon after he pledged himself to the Daedric Prince Molag Bal, and in his name he sacrificed a thousand innocents. In return, Molag Bal granted him immortality by turning him and his family into pure-blood vampires. They went on to become the progenitors of the clan.
