How do I resurrect companions / followers?

  • I've had a few companions who have died.

    Is it possible to resurrect them? If not, where can they be hired from?

    As of 14th of April, 2016 the accepted answer and every answer except for galacticninja's are **only** correct for the **console** versions. For the PC version there is a solution and it is stated by the aformentioned answer!

  • There is no way to resurrect lost companions. Any NPC who dies is dead forever.

    In the mission where you retrieve the skeleton key, you have 2 companions who "pass out" when they have no health left and come back when their health regenerates. Is this the exeption to the rule?

    @Coomie I've found that most NPCs (including villagers who foolishly would attack dragons) go into a wounded state when reduced to minimal health. From this state, only players can kill them. You wouldn't happen to be using some sort of friendly fire and accidentally kill your followers, would you?

    @RavenDreamer I deal in fire - a lot. So there's a good chance. But hang on a second, I see villagers kill thieves all the time...

    @Coomie most *unique* npcs. I've seen town guards die to dragons by the truckload.

    @RavenDreamer you mean quest and essential NPCs.

    Yes you can using cheats!
