Looking for the SE version of Eloise? LATER TODAY… Hopefully!!
Eloise, along with her sister Mavis Stormquiver, is a member of an adventurers’ guild located in Cyrodiil. She and her fellow adventurers are sent to different provinces of Tamriel to gather information and raise and spread the guilds fame and reputation across the continent. They want to achieve this by helping out the local people and committing heroic deeds. Eloise left for Skyrim first, and Mavis followed later, and has been looking for Eloise in Skyrim ever since.
In Skyrim, Eloise got ambushed by vampires and was able to hold them off by herself until the Dawnguard rescued her. They saw the talent in her and promptly attempted to recruit her. While she is aligned with them, she is not a member of their faction. But her time with them has allowed her to train and become a powerful ally in the effort to eliminate vampires and other undead across Skyrim. Along the way, has obtained some unique weapons and abilities. She is a powerful hunter, and earned the name “Dawnbringer” for her exploits. The rest of her story… that’s up to you!
Note: The main mod requires the Dawnguard DLC, but we also have a non-Dawnguard version for those that don’t have the Dawnguard DLC installed. In that case, Eloise was rescued by theVigilants of Stendarr…

Custom Dialogue Topics – English Voiced:
Eloise has a few custom features that you can take advantage of if you have read the “Eloise Dawnbringer Journal” and have it in your inventory:
[*]Transmuting Malachite ore into a different type of Malachite ore. You give her as much Malachite ore (normal, red, or Sun) as you want transmuted, and she will transmute all of it to whatever type you like, and then place it back into your inventory!
[*]Access to her Special Inventory, which for full mod users contains the non-Dawnguard version’s glass weapons. It also contains 500 Dawnbringer Sunhallowed Bolts – these bolts explode on impact, with visual and audio effects, and extra damage.
For non-Dawnguard users, the Special Inventory contains extra Arrows and the Dawnbringer Sun Glass Sword of Scorching.[*]If SKSE is installed, Eloise will allow you to request her to switch between 7 alternate Combat Styles. 3 custom styles, and 4 basic Skyrim styles. If you use this option, do not use any alternate combat styles from your follower management mod like AFT, EFF, or UFO.
While the custom voiced dialogue will remain English voiced, we are working on a German translation of the topics and subtitles for Frank213 and our other German friends! Available soon!!

Healing spells – Eloise has basic healing spells, and a custom shout that allows her to heal herself occasionally (she is NOT a healer)
Dawnbringer Stendarr’s Aura Shout (Once per day, Level 50 and above) – damages vampires and undead that contact the aura!
Dawnbringer Auriel Lightning Bolts – at around Level 20, Eloise will begin to use her Auriel Lightning Bolt magic.
Dawnbringer Auriel Thunderbolts – at higher levels
(These two spells do normal shock damage, but also light vampires and other undead on fire for extra damage!)
Requirements and recommendations:
Eloise is standalone. She should not require anything beyond Skyrim with all updates applied. However, to make her more enjoyable, here are some things we recommend:
Use a follower mod such as AFT, EFF, or UFO. We tested with all 3, in addition to the vanilla follower system.
Face Light along with Better lighting for Face Light and Facelight Plus
Relationship Dialogue Overhaul – RDO to improve and add a lot of follower dialog.
Follower Commentary Overhaul – FCO for even more dialog.
Credits and Special Thanks:
This follower mod was a joint effort between Laoshan99 and chickmetalhead, but a lot of things went into it.
The primary two weapons Eloise uses, her Auriel Sun Sword and Auriel Crossbow started with meshes from:
Ghosu – Auriels Crossbow and Swords
Since the blade of the Ghosu sword was not something we could use, the blade of the sword was replaced with a blade from:
Arming Swords Skyrim HD 1_15
with the base texture of the blade modified by chickmetalhead to match the Ghosu grip, and to capture the spirit of the sword!
For her Auriel Crossbow, quiver and the grip of her Auriel Sun Sword, the textures from the following mods by Alana12 were used….
Auriels Bow – HD Retexture
Ghosus Auriels Quiver Retexture
Auriels Shield – HD Retexture
Sunhallowed and Bloodcursed Arrows – HD Retexture
The Crossbow bolts use the textures from Alana12’s retextured Arrows mod, which were shaped and edited by chickmetalhead to work for the bolts instead!
The custom glass weapons Eloise has were created by chickmetalhead, doing retextures and tweaks to the meshes. But to make her glass dagger and swords come alive, it took the special magic that is only found in LeanWolf’s meshes, found in:
LeanWolf’s Better-Shaped Weapons
LeanWolf was kind enough to grant chickmetalhead permission to use the LeanWolf meshes in his mods. They are used as the base for the daggers Eloise carries and her two alternate glass swords, with additional effect tweaks by chickmetalhead. So special thanks to LeanWolf! We highly recommend that you use the weapons mod in your game – and that you go and endorse it!
The Huntress and Witcher 3 outfit items that Eloise comes equipped with is from zzjay’s awesome mods:
Witcher 3 Female Armors
Special thanks to zzjay for allowing the outfits to be used by others! The Witcher 3 mod also uses assets from:
CDprojektRED for witcher3 models
See the Witcher 3 Female Armors mod page for more details – and give it an endorsement!
Additional credits: (please endorse these mods if you haven’t yet!)
Finally, I would like to thank PhantomNX! No mod assets by PhantomNX were used, but his forum posts helped on the Auriel Lightning spells!
(If I have forgotten anything, my sincere apologies – and please let me know by PM and I will update immediately!)
Unless otherwise noted, images on the main page use Rudy ENB
Face Light along with Better lighting for Face Light and Facelight Plus were used in most or all images.
Pose mods may have been used in a few images, using the amazing GomaPero Pose mod!

FAQ: (Please read before asking any questions in the comment area! Please!)
Q: When I remove part of the default outfit from Eloise, strange things happen, clipping, body parts disappear… What should I do?
A: As noted above, the her outfit has an “All or None” restriction. So if you want to remove part of the outfit, you need to remove all of it. This is a restriction by the mod creator of the outfit. We love the outfit, so decided to supply it as the default outfit Eloise wears.
Q: Can you offer any other body types or skin textures?
A: No, but you can change them out if you want something different.
