Mirmulnir as seen in Skyrim
|Race and Gender||Dragon (gender unknown)|
Mirmulnir was one of the few dragons to survive the Dragon War, and successfully avoided persecution by the Akaviri Dragonguard. By 2E 373, he was still purportedly alive, having last been sighted by the Blades in the Reach in 2E 212.
It is unknown if Mirmulnir was slain before the return of his master Alduin in 4E 201. Upon his return, Alduin began the process of resurrecting the many dead dragons buried throughout Skyrim in ancient times by the Dragon Cult. Mirmulnir was one of the first dragons to make a reappearance, when he attacked a watchtower west of Whiterun, killing several guardsmen. The Jarl of Whiterun, Balgruuf the Greater, sent a group of soldiers to deal with the dragon. Among them was the Last Dragonborn, whose Dragonblood was revealed when Mirmulnir was slain and his soul absorbed. This event was noticed by the Greybeards, and the Dragonborn was summoned to High Hrothgar. Having had his soul devoured by another dovah, Mirmulnir was killed permanently and cannot be raised again.
