Horkers are sea animals, similar in appearance to a walrus, that typically live in packs of three or four. They are usually found on ice at the sides of rivers in northern Skyrim. Occasionally one of these creatures can be seen crawling up a slope near the seaside. They will become hostile if approached too closely or provoked. Horkers are very slow and easy to avoid and outmaneuver, making them very easy targets. In water, however, they are much faster and harder to outrun. You may loot the corpses for their meat and tusks. With the installation of the Dragonborn add-on, a unique horker named Lord Tusk appears on Solstheim.
For more information on the dead horker in Skaal VillageDB, see this page.
- Horker YounglingDB is a kind of unique horker with decreased size not found in-game. You can only encounter it in Editor Smoke Test Cell.
- Horkers are supposed to have horker abilities (RefID:
0008caca) which adds 50% Frost Resistance and Waterbreathing, but due to an oversight they don't.
- This bug is fixed by version 1.2.2 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
