:Welcome to the Direwolf Followers mod for Skyrim: Special Edition:

Each unique Direwolf was created using the wolf skin from Bethesda as a base texture. If you've watched the show before then you may have noticed that the dog actors who played the Direwolves tend to get swapped as the show goes on. This made it harder to establish specific coats for Greywind, Lady, and Nymeria in comparison to the other three more iconic wolf coats. The look for Lady is after Sophie Turner's adopted dog IRL, Nymeria's fur is from the scene in Season 7 where her and Arya have their reunion, and Greywind was mostly based on simple description. Fans of the books will recognize Shaggydog's bright green eyes as G.R.R.Martin's original depiction from the books. Finally, each Direwolf also has unique Dialogue options modeled after their master's personality in the story.

The Direwolf followers can be found together inside Direwolf Den, which is a cave near Markarth - see attached images for an in-game map reference. Nymeria is found outside and in front of the cave near the road. Each direwolf scales in level equally with the player and cannot be killed.

:Follower/Mount Hybrid:

All Direwolf Followers have a unique dialogue option that will temporarily transform the direwolf into a mount. This will last until you get on and dismount, transforming all direwolves back to followers.There are some animation problems when using Direwolf mounts in the water, this is expected. Each Direwolf has Waterwalking to help avoid breaking animations while running through water. If you're intending to use the direwolves as a mount then it's important to practice going down hills as they can easily lift off due to the running speed, possibly killing you with fall damage.


The mod now uses a custom framework for follower/mount mechanics so it's compatible with almost every mod available.
Mods that change the same area that the den is located are incompatible by default.

Good luck!
