He's an essential NPC, he can't die.

Farkas should be unable to die, during Companions questline. He will jus collaps, until his health (slowly) regenerates and the he get's back to battle.

Of course, this means that all enemies are ignoring him during this time and going after your character.

Wierd i saw him re-gen health ye...but later on some silver hands hit him then i could loot his body isnt he dead then?
-EDIT-
Just went back in the cave Farkas was laying on the floor like he was dead

The some mod or conflict has made him non-essential. He is a needed character, from start to end of Companions questline. His death would make that questline unplayable.

You might have to load a previous save and make sure that you are not using any mod that has this type of effect on him.

There are console commands to flag him essential again (if needed), but let's first make sure that this is an issue with some mod, or that command won't do a thing in the long run.

setessential <base ID> <value>
Value: 1=Essential, 0=Mortal.

Ye had some mod that allowed me to kill anyone + kids so i didnt really have a save that wasnt gonna take me back to when the quest started or when he was alive so....guess i have to start on a new save xD

You can also just select him (click on him in console screen) and type "resurrect".

Right. That makes sense. Essential characters should never be marked un-essential, or there might be game breaking effects. :)

I included the code anyway. Thought it might come in hand.

resurrect 1
if you wish targeted character to keep his gear.

However, that command has a habit of creating problems. Especially, when the mod that made Farkas killable will still leave scripts to saves, where there are stored, as well the infromation about Farkas's death event.

It is always wiser to load an earlier save, if possible.

The data from mod would have been active in your game anyway, so that was probably the best option. :)
