At the moment all of my followers keep dying off. During Boethiah's Calling, I am at the part where I sacrifice a follower.

Since I don't want to take the time to get another follower, I was wondering if a hireling would work for this?

Being able to use a hireling would save me a lot of time and effort.

Yes, a hireling works fine. I hired a mercenary from the bar in Riften, marched him straight out there, and sacrificed him.

Sadly, his body did not contain the 500 gold I'd hired him with!

No not that mage Marcurio! I did it to Lydia since she sucks. – Jim Jones Dec 24 '15 at 18:46

There is a dark elf in the Drunken Huntsman in Whiterun. That's who I used.
