The default player character

Prisoner is the default name for the player character. Their name, race, gender, and appearance are subject to change during character creation.


  • The game data also lists eight non-player-related NPCs named "Prisoner", all identified as Falmer Prisoners who were possibly associated with a cut quest in Chillwind Depths.
  • The player's BaseID and RefID are the same as those of the player-character in Oblivion.
  • Additionally, Skyrim's player-character is named Bendu Olo in promotional footage and images, which has also been used in promotional footage and images as the player-character's name in Morrowind, Oblivion, and Blades.
