I'm playing through Skyrim again, and when choosing what follower to use at my level, I noticed that the Elder Scrolls Wiki lists Mjoll the Lioness's level as

PC×1.25 (10-40)

UESP says this as well.

So, if I'm level 28, Mjoll should be level 35.

Are there any other permanent followers with a level that's different than the Dragonborn's? This is assuming that the Dragonborn's level is currently within the follower's range.


When I checked, the Elder Scrolls Wiki did not list a multiplier for every follower, but UESP did.

There are three followers with multipliers less than 1, and two with multipliers over 1:

Roggi Knot-Beard: PC×0.75 (range=6-20)
Sven: PC×0.75 (range=6-20)
Adelaisa Vendicci: PC×0.9 (range=6-25)

Mjoll the Lioness: PC×1.25 (range=10-40)
Erandur: PC×1.5 (range=6-50)

This explains why Erandur is so awesome, as anyone who has used him has probably noticed.

Most animal followers and a few people have set levels that do not change. Talvas Fathryon, for instance, is always level 25.

  • Looks like you skipped quest followers. – Lord Harkon Sep 29 '16 at 17:17
  • @amaranth Yeah, I'm not counting those, since I can't choose them as followers outside the quest. Also, that section is noted as being incomplete on UESP. – DCShannon Sep 29 '16 at 17:17
  • @amaranth Added the word "permanent" to the question, to clarify. – DCShannon Sep 29 '16 at 17:19
