Storm Mages are enemy spellcasters who specialize in the Shock Damage branch of Destruction magic. They are typically found in a few caves, keeps, and ruins across Skyrim known as warlock lairs. Like other elemental mages (fire mages and ice mages), they belong to the Fire/Frost/Shock Mage NPC class.
The type of storm mage you encounter depends on your level. You will continue to meet low-level storm mages even at high levels, but boss-level storm mages will always be at the highest possible level.

- All the generic shock mages that are High Elves are listed twice in the leveled lists, which means shock mages are slightly more likely to be High Elves than one of the other races.
