I went to a place called Ironbind Barrow and met a girl and a Mage there. The mage's name was Bee-ja. They wanted to get treasure out of Ironbind Barrow, but when we reached the treasure chest, a dragon priest appeared and started attacking me, so I killed him. He didn't have a dragon priest mask like the other (usually masked) dragon priests like Nahkriin. So is this dragon priest meant to have a mask or not?

Can you clarify your question with supporting details? (Perhaps why you expect him to have a mask?) It's hard to understand as is – Wolf Apr 22 '12 at 3:13

@Thedeadricwarrior, it's better to edit your question to contain more detail, rather than leaving a comment. There's an edit link just above these comments that you can use to add this information to your question. – agent86 Apr 22 '12 at 3:24
Oh sorry I forgot about that :D – The deadric warrior Apr 22 '12 at 3:30

Warlord Gathrik is the boss of Ironbind Barrow, and depending on your level, he may appear as a dragon priest, although he may also be a Draugr Deathlord instead.

However, even if he spawns as a priest, he is not one of the dragon priests that carries a mask.

There are only a few dragon priests that carry masks, and they are:

  • Hevnoraak
  • Krosis
  • Morokei
  • Nahkriin
  • Otar the Mad
  • Rahgot
  • Vokun
  • Volsung

You may encounter other priests (named and unnamed) in your journeys, but other than these they will not carry masks. The UESP page on Undead contains a subsection on dragon priests, and has links to the locations of all of them.
