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. Unlike the rest of Castle Volkihar's inhabitants, the Watchman is not a vampire.
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:
- Bloodline: Choose your side!
- The watchman will disappear from the game once you complete Bloodline.
