I’ve just finished the Dawnguard quest lines and decided to do some free roaming again. I went to Half-Moon Mill and Hert could be seen working at the mill. She was facing away from me; as I approached she said I could cut some wood, turned to face me and, horror of horrors, she was a vampire!

I didn’t engage in any conversation for fear of activating some vampire-ish response and have Lydia cut her down. We just left the area in the hope of finding a cure, even a console command.

Hert is one of my favourite non-follower NPCs so I don’t want to kill her, but I can’t leave her as she is. Can I cure her?

I am playing on PC.

I want to thank you for your efforts and this is just a report of what happened in the hope someone can see what I’m doing wrong.

IF I use setrace nordrace her face changes slightly still looks vampiry not like Hert but not as much, and becomes an unmoving mask she talks but her mouth doesn’t move. I then tried the bat file which seems to work but I did get a few spells that don’t apply to Hert. But no change to the face. I reverted to a previous save and tried again by running the bat file first and then the setrace and I thought it had worked better as she could still talk and her moth moved but still looked vampiry not her old self. That is until I saved and reloaded and I was back to the solid mask again. I have gone back to a save before I started this in the hope it can be fixed in future

I don’t really care that she a Vampire as long as she gets her old normal (not Vampire) Face back hopefully whatever Dawnguard does to make her look like a vampire can be undone

I have since found that changing Hert from Nord-Vampire to Nord in the construction set works and she recovers her Nord face.

With help from cyrus224 at Nexus Forums:

Walk up to Hert and press the ~ key at the top left of your keyboard to open the Console.

Click her, then type the commands listed below.

Or you can copy and paste the code into Notepad.

Scripts must be in the same folder as TESV.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim

To execute a script type the following command into the Console:

BAT scriptname

where scriptname = the name of the script file

Example: Bat VampireCureHert

How to Cure a Player or NPC with Vampirism

Choose a RaceCode. Don't execute this command if you want them to continue looking like a Vampire (or you could execute this code just to change how Hert appears and NOT cure her).

SetRace NordRace

Then you need to run all of this code, which is why it is suggested to do it in Notepad.

  • Actually, this is even easier, all you need to do is the SetRace <race>RaceVampire. You just need to add vampire to the end of the setrace command. Note: I don't think this will make them crave blood. Commented Sep 20, 2013 at 16:14
