I was playing a sneak style character with companion and liked that, but in one battle with a dragon my companion died. Can I hire a new companion in Skyrim? If yes, then where to hire them?

You can find them in several Inns and some are quest-related. Here is a incomplete list of several followers.

Additionally you can buy a wardog for 500 gold in front of the stables in Markarth who is independent of a human follower (you can use both).

  • +! didn't know the wardog was separate from your follower, nice!

Companions are people you work with usually, or sometimes affected to your service.

For example, Lydia is affected to you if you became Thane of Whiterun. There is a mage that will accept to follow you in the Winterhold college if you help her.

I guess there is more, but I don't know all of them.


Just go to another companion and say follow me. But there's a bug that they say you already have a follower 'cause you didn't dismiss it but he\she died. Bug fix is for Farkas quest after companions quest line.

  • Don't forget about non-npc companions, they don't disaccept
