Original Description by Dama Karmelowa



Dao is a... well, she'd say she's a Dremora, but opinions may vary. It's a bit of a sore subject, really - she's got a diary in her inventory if you're curious, and if you manage to impress her, you might even be able to talk to her about it. In any case, she's a Daedra, she used to serve Dagon, but recently she's found herself in a bit of a pickle and is now... in between masters, let us say. If you find her outside Mehrunes Dagon's shrine, it shouldn't be too difficult to talk her into following you.

Or you can be a good citizen (or a Vigilant of Stendarr, idk) and challenge her to a fight instead. Your call.

  • A custom voice set based on Fura Bloodmouth's voice from Dawnguard. It's not big or anything, but I edited it to give her several idles, a tiny handful of location comments, and some additional player-initiated dialogue. Plus her initial recruitment dialogue is a bit more involved than "Follow now plz kthx". I tried to make her sound appropriately Daedric - like, Dremora in Oblivion had those cool, deep, echoing voices, and I tried to get something similar with Dao!
  • Her attitude to the player changes with the player's actions! If you impress her, she'll tell you a bit more about her history, plus she'll offer a few additional services, including free training in Heavy Armour and Two-Handed. Her additional services are free but you can only access them once a day. For more information about impressing Dao, see below.
  • Pick fights with Vigilants of Stendarr! Talk to any non-essential Vigilant while Dao is following. There will be a new dialogue option to let you immersively start some shiz.
  • Her own follower system. She ignores your friendly fire and doesn't count against the follower limit, so you can have her tag along with any other followers you might be using. If you tell her to wait, she will stay put indefinitely.
  • Standalone, unique UUNP Special body. NOTE: If you want, uh, jiggling bits, make sure to install HDT. It's not required though, she'll work just fine without it as long as you install XPMSE or a compatible skeleton. For more info, see Requirements.
  • Nisetanaka's Iron Bikini armour as her outfit. If you want to change her outfit, use a mod like Simple NPC Outfits. Although this will probably remove her beautiful horns, so be ready to add them back via console if needed.
  • Kukatsuo's Steel Scythe as her weapon, edited a little by me. It's slightly weaker but also faster than a Daedric battleaxe.
  • A teleport spell to bring her back if she gets lost. To acquire the spell, look for the "Call Dao" spell book in Dao's inventory.
  • She's essential and shouldn't trip any traps.
  • She isn't marriable - her voiceset didn't have any lines for that uhh, she's a Daedra, her idea of romance is probably killing things extra hard so you don't think she's slacking.


Outside the shrine of Mehrunes Dagon.

Impressing Dao

If you impress her, Dao will start to address you as Lord/Lady, provide free trainer services, and give you random soul gems if you ask. She'll also have two additional conversation topics in her general conversation dialogue. But impressing her isn't all that easy. You must do one of the following:

  • Finish Mehrunes Dagon's Daedric quest by killing Silus and obtaining Mehrunes' Razor.
  • Kill Alduin.
  • Be at least level 47 (i.e. stronger than a Dremora Valkynaz).
  • Or, if you're the mistrustful mage type, you can just craft a special scroll, called "Scroll of Dao's Loyalty" at the tanning rack. Yes, I know a tanning rack isn't especially magical. No, I couldn't figure out a better option. NOTE: Your Conjuration skill must be at least 50 for you to be able to craft the scroll! Or you can just add it with console, I'm not telling you how to play your game, lol. Once you have the scroll, just cast it on Dao. 

Anyway, for the most parts, all the options work mostly the same, except that if you bind her rather than impress her, she won't comment on how powerful you are.


Dao uses a unique UUNP Special body and Fair Skin Complexion textures. Her outfit is technically playable, but will use Dao's body and textures, so your player character might get a neck seam and/or gap.

Her fighting style is 2H Human Boss, with her energy levels raised a little so she should be fairly fast in combat.

She has the following perks: Lightfoot, Tower of Strength, Reflect Blows, Sweep, Limbsplitter, Deep Wounds, Champion's Stance, Devastating Blow.

She starts at level 12 (like a Dremora Caitiff). She levels with the player and has no max level limit.

Compatibility notes

Compatible with AFT, EFF, Simple NPC Outfit Manager, and My Home is Your Home.

Generally compatible with Nether's Follower Framework. If you have issues after importing her into the framework, try deactivating the Default Follow Package option under Follower Tweaks (a.k.a. Dao's own follow AI) and let her use Nether's follower package.

You can do whatever you want with this mod as long as it stays free and on the Nexus. Some assets I used were shared by their authors on the condition that they are never uploaded to other websites or used in paywalled mods.

All voice, mesh and texture assets in this mod were made by other people. If you want to use the files I modified, that's fine with me, but please make sure to credit the original authors. Credit me as well if you want, that would be nice!
