Kharjo is a Khajiit warrior who guards and travels with the rest of the trade caravan led by Ahkari. He can be found outside either Dawnstar or Riften, and walks the route in between.

Kharjo wears a set of steel plate armor, including matching gauntlets and boots. He is equipped with a steel mace and a steel shield, and carries a selection of common loot and gold. After you return his amulet, Kharjo will wear it as well. You can take it back from his inventory when he is an active follower.

Kharjo can also be recruited into the Blades. When told to depart, or after waiting for too long, he will return to his original caravan.

Amulet of the MoonEdit

Upon meeting him, he will say:

"Bandits harass the caravans at every step, but Khajiit usually scare them off."
Bandits giving you trouble?
"A few days ago, we were ambushed. A nuisance, really, but many of the marauders had quick fingers. One of them stole my Moon Amulet, given to me by my mother when I was just a cub. It is my only memory of home in this cold land."
I could get your amulet back.
"You are kind to offer. We believe the bandits are a part of a group headquartered here. Be careful. I miss my amulet, but a life cannot be replaced as easily."
Sorry to hear that.
"We are used to the cycle of gain and loss. It is no trouble."

Upon returning the amulet to him, he will express his thanks:

I have your amulet.
"There it is. Ah.... Home.... If you ever need the skills of a Khajiit warrior by your side, I would be honored to travel with you. Until then, here. This is for you, in thanks."

He can now be recruited as a follower.


When spoken to directly you can ask him a couple of questions:

You guard the caravan?
"Yes, I was hired to protect the others as we walk the roads of Skyrim. It is a thankless task and I would rather be back home in Elsweyr, but I have little choice. Ahkari freed me from a prison in Cyrodiil, and now I must repay my debt to him [sic]. A word of advice, my friend -- do not mix gambling and drink. Taken together, they will empty your pockets of every septim."
What dangers does the caravan face?
"Skyrim is filled with all manner of dangerous beasts. Wolves, trolls, mammoths and giants would all like to make a meal of us. But the dragons are the most fearsome. Lucky for us, they don't seem to hunt along the roads."


Kharjo: "Soon it will be time to replenish our supply of water."
Zaynabi: "The road takes us past many cold rivers. We can fill our skins there."
Kharjo: "If the river is not frozen to ice, perhaps."
