If you give your traveling companion a weapon with a Soul Trap enchantment and some assorted Soul Gems, can they Soul Trap creatures that they kill?


Yes they can!

This is an easy way to take some of the hassle and headache out of the whole soul-management process.

Just be sure to keep the weapon you've given them recharged.

    And make sure you provide them with unfilled soul gems :) It also makes a difference what companion you use. My Lydia (RIP... sniffle) used a Soul Trap bow or sword consistently, but when I have a mage companion, they never really seem to use any weapons I provide, even if they equip a dagger when we walk around town, so I wouldn't use a mage companion for help filling soul gems. – aedia λ Jan 10 '12 at 0:38
