The Watchman is an elderly doorman found at Castle Volkihar, guarding the entrance to Volkihar Keep. He wears leather armor and boots, and carries an iron sword. When you first visit the castle, he'll stop you, saying "Begone! You're not welcome here!" Then, upon seeing Serana with you, he'll be shocked and say, "Lady Serana's back! Open the gate!" and lead you both into the castle. He has several other lines of dialogue when idling:
- "Go on, get out of here!"
- "You're not welcome here."
- "Go away! We don't suffer trespassers!"
- "Lord Harkon's a great man. Best show him the proper respect."
- "I watch the gate. Ain't much else to tell."
- "After all these years, Lady Serana's back. Now that's something."
- "Way I hear it, Lady Serana's been gone a real long time."
- The watchman will disappear from the game once you complete Bloodline.
