A warrior’s body tells his story, or rather many stories. Stories of battles, defeats and victories, of blood, sweat and rage. Stories of peace and happiness too, never so savoured than in these precious moments of respite.
Shandar’s body is the one of a true warrior, covered with traces of his fierce way through life. He never knew his parents. He was raised by a Redguard warrioress named Baala who taught him to fight perfectly with a curved sword of Hammerfell. His scimitar, whose knob is unlaid with a flawless emerald, is her legacy to him. He went to Skyrim to fight oppression and injustice, but in which side?
He is a man of simple tastes: he enjoys swords, shields and war poetry. However, he isn’t a brainless lout as you can imagine at first sight. Yes, he’s fierce and merciless in combat, but he enjoys simple moments of peace, like sitting around a campfire or drinking mead in a warm inn. He isn’t talkative and is quite reserved.
When he will meet you in this little inn of Falkreath, he will know that you are worthy of being followed.

He is waiting for you at Dead Man’s Drink Inn, in Falkreath.

- Choose your version: 2K (2048) or 1K (1024).
- Just drag and drop the .esp and .bsa into your Data folder.
- Check the .esp in NMM or the launcher.

Every follower mod like UFO or EFF should be loaded AFTER this mod.

Where can I find him?
He is at Dead Man’s Drink Inn, in Falkreath. He is usually sitting somewhere, in the main hall or in the large bedroom.

What can he do? Has he some special features?
Unfortunately not. I’m not able to write scripts to enhance him. He probably never will have custom dialogues, because English is not my native language and I have other projects.

Can you change him, delete some paints or scars?
No. I know he can remind you Pirates of the Carribean or even some black painted Punisher (lol), but I spent a LOT of time on him and I think he’s nice as he is, because he’s unique. I would like to focus on other followers.

Concerning the textures, there is a slight neckseam, but it’s impossible to fix. There is also a slight line on the back of his head, but depending on the light and the ENB you use, it’s not that obvious. Eyes have no tear duct because it was buggy (eye mesh modified with CharGen).

Please report any trouble you may have.

A huge thank to all the talentuous modders who allowed me to use their work! You’re wonderful!
