The article says he's a Breton, yet the table lists him as an Imperial. Could someone with the CS check and fix the article? --Dws90 17:55, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

Reply: He's a Imperial his skin is not pale enough. — Unsigned comment by (talk)
Actually he might be a Breton because I hit the Court Healer and he went "By the gods there's a psychopath on the loose!" in a standard Breton voice. It couldn't of been anyone else because he was the only male other than me in the room. He also once said to me "Is everything alright? You look a bit ill." in a Breton voice. In reality he's probably not meant to be either, rather some sort of Daedra, maybe. Mind you, he doesn't look like one. 00:18, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
I've checked the Construction Set. He is, in fact, a Breton. Skin tone is never an indication of race, especially given how close Imperials and Bretons are. It's perfectly possible to make a purple-skinned Orc or a midnight-blue-skinned High Elf. --Deathbane27 00:43, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

Haskill's suit[edit]

Is it possible to obtain it? ( Without cheats or the editor) There is an image of a character wearing it, but as Haskill is always an essential character, I'm wondering how that image exists... --Merco 07:36, 15 August 2007 (EDT)

Nope! The outfit is called "Haskill's Suit" and it's ID is 00074E85. The only occurances are found on his person and inside a testing cell. Without using the console or a custom mod, there is no way to get one. In fact, it doesn't even have an inventory icon or a world model. --Saruuk 07:53, 15 August 2007 (EDT)

Picture of Haskil[edit]

Is Haskil meant to have a really small head and a normal body or is it just me?????— Unsigned comment by Tabloes (talkcontribs)

Probably, he is supposed to be strange, as he is the first thing you see in the Isles.-Puddle 20:00, 9 May 2008 (EDT)
From what I can tell from the CS, he uses the same body as other Bretons in the game. It's probably just an optical illusion caused by the size and shape of the collar and shoulders of his suit. --Saruuk 20:29, 9 May 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, it looks like Klaus Nomis signature suit:
I wonder if that's where Bethesda got their inspiration from. -- J5689 18:24, 28 July 2008 (EDT)


(moved to the article)
  • Haskill's apparent lucidity might hint that he's been serving Sheogorath for a long time, perhaps even before he WAS Sheogorath, back when he was Jyggalag, the Daedric Prince of order.
Not a shred of evidence for this so it shouldn't be on the page. Given that Haskill seems as surprised as anybody else when events unfold I don't think it's true. –RpehTCE 05:08, 22 November 2008 (EST)
Haskill is not Jyggalag's former servant , otherwise he would have not been so reluctant to point you towards Jyggalag's bookkeeper. Anyway, life as Jyggalag's manservant would be pretty dull, as there would be no mushroom trees, no rainfall of burning dog's and no Fimmion asking for "sveetrolls". Defender of Lainlyn 00:09, 14 January 2010 (UTC)


Could Haskill be Ravate? I think it's quite a good explanation how he came to Islands and why he's serving Sheogorath, despite way in which Sheo is treating him. Maybe he's not so sane as it appears? 12:03, 4 March 2009 (EST)

Or Ravate could be Earil. Or the fellow who split Split. Speculation is a two-edged sword, spinning through the air in directions no one can surely predict. Haskill is the only completely lucid inhabitant of the Shivering Isles. Which, by that ironic grace, makes him the most unusual person there. Nevertheless, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, and a character like Haskil sometimes is simply neccessary to serve as a foil and a grounding point for the telling of this story. —Dark Spark 15:56, 7 March 2009 (EST)
I had the same idea as well, I wasn't aware somebody else had got their before me though :P. It would seem to make sense as the book says something like Ravate "remained in Sheogorath's realm, serving every whim of the Madgod, when daring travellers try to approach Sheogorath, Ravate tells them "Sheogorath is in all of us, it is too late, you have already lost."" Which would link in the Haskill, who, as Sheogorath's personal Chamberlain, does "serve every whim of the Madgod", and since he is the one to welcome new visitors, that would link in with "when daring travellers try to approach Sheogorath, Ravate tells them "Sheogorath is in all of us, it is too late, you have already lost."". There is actually a discusiion going on about that now, where I suggested the theory [1] 11:44, 14 April 2010 (UTC)LordDaedra

Reflect Damage[edit]

If you murder someone right in front of Haskill, then he will attack you with a leveled shortsword. I've done several tests with him, and with 101% Reflect Damage, he will eventually knock himself unconscious. (Theoretically, Reflect Spell could kill him; however, since Haskill never casts spells, the point is moot.) 22:23, 20 June 2009 (EDT)


Is Haskill a slave to Sheogorath? I mean, he's smart enough to know if he decided to leave Sheogorath would probably turn him into a cheesewheel or something...--Arch-Mage Matt 16:01, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure but there are some pints in time where he doesn't appear to be happy serving Sheogorath. -Fimmion 17:49, 24 December 2009‎
I think Haskill would like to leave the Realm, but he has a feeling of "belonging" to that place, if you know what I mean. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 22:00 on 1 May 2010‎

Fixing Vampire dialogue bug with Haskill[edit]

The generic Vampire dialogs ("You won't get any of my blood" etc.) should not apply to Haskill, because Charm does not work on him, because he is set to Ghost state in his script. You either need to mod his disposition with the player through the script in CS or the console or change the vampire generic greetings to specifically exclude Haskill (ID =! SEHaskill). Otherwise it isn't possible to ask him about Sheogorath's quests, cause he just says "Stay away from me" and then the dialogue is over. WRFan 11:22, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

or you could just feed on someone and he'll talk to youThedrunknord 03:24, 10 January 2010 (UTC)Thedrunknord

His "immunity" ability[edit]

What ability or script causes him to have such ability? — Unsigned comment by (talk) on 20 December 2009

It's actually a built-in function of the game. The console command SetGhost is used, which renders the target immune like Haskill, but still interactible by dialogue. --Timenn-<talk> 13:31, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Disappeared from the palace[edit]

I don't know if this has happened to anyone else but Haskill has disappeared from his place in the palace and I searched every inch of the palace as well but when I summon him he functions perfectly fine even being able to do things he shouldn't be able to do unless I went and talked to him in the palace so I was wondering if this had happened to anyone else. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 19:22 on 24 January 2010‎

Try summoning him in the palace where he stands and see if he gets teleported back there. There may have been a battle, and he could've run off, other wise, I got nothing.--Arch-Mage Matt 22:53, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

I have had it when I summoned him then went through a door, before talking, this glitched the spell, and made the game think that was 'real' him.


This is entirely irrelevant to the game but when i was talking to haskill in the butterfly room i envisioned him as Morpheus from The Matrix. Anyone else think the same thing? -- 17:49, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Whole TES series have easter eggs and references to many things, so it may be possible. Even though it didn't caught my eye. 21:57, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
I thought that by the way you sit facing each other, then he takes you to another reality. — Unsigned comment by Mad-Sheogorath-Man (talkcontribs) at 18:03 on 27 August 2010
It's much too tentative of a link to include in the article. I don't see it at all, actually. If he'd offered you two different coloured pills, it would be a different story. Robin Hoodtalk 19:06, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
Well, he does offer to let you leave the Isles. Then again, the whole "You have two choices; One will let everything go back to normal, and the other will take you to another world, which you will then save and stuff" thing is pretty common. I don't see anything specific to Morpheus, however. He simply is the same character archetype as him.--The Void 01:53, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Haskill Fights[edit]

Whenever I attack one of my escorts, Haskill comes to my aid and starts fighting them. It's amusing watching them trying to hurt him with no success, their maces and spells go right through him. However, he doesn't kill them, they heal themselves. Once I gave him the Mace of Doom... :D --Rigas Papadopoulos • TalkDeeds 15:48, 23 November 2010 (UTC)


Could Haskill be desribed as this? His comments when you summon him tend to be thinly veiled insults. 11:48, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Haskill won't stop trying to heal himself![edit]

I accidentally got into a fight situation whilst having Haskill summoned, and he got attacked and knocked down. So now he repeatedly seems to be casting a healing spell (arm raised), but it doesn't heal him much! Any suggestions? 01:22, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

He has a lot of health. He'll heal himself eventually. rpeh •TCE 06:02, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
He never seems to. I clearly have some bug going on - I can't progress through the Understanding Madness quest, and if I console through it to the next, both Thadon and Syl attack when I talk to them! 22:52, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
It seems like you have a lot going on in your game. Do you have any mods that affect the Shivering Isles in particular? Also, Haskill has a Lesser Power to heal 300 Health, and his Base Health is ordinarily leveled. --DKong27 Talk Cont 23:39, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
I know exactly what he's talking about, my Haskill does that too. It's definitely a bug. But I don't see how it stops you from progressing. I'm almost done with shivering isles. I can stilll talk to Haskill, he just keeps using his restore spell over and over. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 20:16 on 8 June 2011‎

Clara Haskil inspiration[edit]

Discussion moved to Shivering_talk:Easter Eggs#Clara Haskil inspiration

Potential Trivia Bit[edit]

In Shivering Isles, Haskill is voiced by Jeff Baker. Baker, incidentally, provided the voice lines for Sheogorath in Morrowind. While this is almost certainly nothing more than a neat little tidbit, I invite any of you "Haskill is part of Sheogorath" cultists to go wild. That will be all. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 02:37 on 15 June 2014

That's a completely invalid argument, unless you extend it to say that Clavacus and Barbas and all non-unique Altmer, Bosmer, Dunmer, and Golden Saints are the same person, or that Sheogorath, Hermaeus Mora, the Arena announcer, and non-unique Imperial males are the same person.
