"Stendarr's Mercy be upon you, for the Vigil has none to spare." - A Vigilant of Stendarr

The Vigil of Stendarr is an order of priests and warriors who fight in the name of the divine Stendarr,[1] those in their ranks are known to be part of the Priesthood of Stendarr.[2] Their main goal and purpose is wiping out Daedra and any other "abominations" (such as vampires, werewolves, and witches) wherever they are found. Vigilants regularly patrol the wilds of Tamriel in their dedication to wiping out Daedra, and will cure diseases for free. The order was created shortly after the Oblivion Crisis.[1] Each provincial chapter is led by a Keeper of the Vigil. The Vigil's base of operations in Skyrim was the Hall of the Vigilant, located south of Dawnstar. They also gather near Stendarr's Beacon in The Rift. The Vigilants in Skyrim were led by Keeper Carcette.

The Skyrim chapter suffered heavy losses during a vampire attack by the Volkihar, and their main base of operations, the Hall of the Vigilant, was completely destroyed.[3]

The reformed Dawnguard began as a splinter group of the Skyrim chapter. Some of the Vigil members have some connection to the Silver Hand, a group of werewolf hunters, with such members fighting together with the Silver Hand and integrating canine motifs into the design of their armor.[4]
