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.
