Malkoran at the end of Kilkreath Ruins

Malkoran is a Breton necromancer who resides in Meridia's Temple. You are tasked with removing him from the temple during the Daedric quest The Break of Dawn. He is accompanied by many corrupted shades which he has created from the casualties of the ongoing war. His Ice Storm spell is quite powerful and it can potentially kill in one to two hits. He also has a great deal of health, making him extremely hard to kill.

Malkoran's Shade spawns upon Malkoran's death.

Malkoran's Shade

Malkoran's Shade is a floating, wraith-like skeleton surrounded by a dark mist. It knows Destruction spells of all elements, and it will also use Wards to protect itself during combat.

Related QuestsEdit


  • Malkoran may spawn with a Destruction staff. If so, he will use it in preference to his own spells, making him far less deadly at early levels.
  • Reanimating the original body of Malkoran and killing him again will cause a second shade to spawn. The shade may still be hostile to you, and will drop his 250 gold again when killed.
  • Owing to his range of spells, he is an extremely powerful candidate for a dead thrall.
  • Despite being part of the Conjurer class, Malkoran does not use any summoning spells in combat.
  • If Malkoran is encountered at a low level (at least 12, when the quest can start), his shade might have more health than he does. However, if he is higher leveled, his shade will actually be less dangerous than him, as it is level 26 and has a static 300 health.
  • Malkoran's Shade is of the "Dragon Priest" species, which indicates it uses the same sounds and movements as actual dragon priests, though it is far less dangerous. It also drops the same amount of gold as dragon priests do. Additionally, despite being classified as undead, Malkoran's Shade is vulnerable to poisons.
