My follower died
well i went to the town Riverwood and gave some love letter to a girl, from a elf looking guy. after that he followed me on my journey, and now he is dead. I couldnt find him at first but then i saw his body was whole dead, and apparently looted.

So i decided to google it since i liked this guy and wondering if there was some resurrect spell or something available, and i only found the console command ingame for resurrect.

Anyway i resurrected him, and now he doesnt like me. He says leave me alone and he dont wanna join me or anything. i think i ruined my friendship with him because he died. :(

Reminds me of Buffy Anne Summers being resentful of her friends taking her out of Heaven, when they resurrected her. But anyway, if you have a save from before he died, you could reload him. I know it won't be the same, rerpeating the same adventures if you have to start some over. But if you posted because you want or need emotional support rather than advice, well, I feel for you. I know about the experience, for I've done the same, but with different people.

revert to previous save , n try n fast travel a few minutes before the last time , run straigh up to its possible some other npc attacked and he got in the way , this way if your there and there is an attack, you mihgt be there to stop it

Faendal is useless. forget him and go find another one possibly a hireling. youll be better off.
I know not very helpful so;
resetAI - target and type resetai in the console to reset disposition or
setrelationshiprank (target) 3 to make him an ally

Good luck

and in the future if you really really like him make him essential via console

There is a mod called Amazing followers Tweakes that you can set to make any follower essential in the future, I know what its like to lose a follower i lost lydia in my first game play and it really anoyed me, infact i reverted to a really early save just to get her back.

Your talking about Faendal

Ive never heard of an npc acting differently when resurrected uumm.

you could getrelationshiprank just to see what it is, the higher thebetter but it sounds like its a 0. at least hes not an enemy
and yes i have had a contract placed on me by him for stealing stuff but hes never showwed his anger though ive never cared if he lived or died and at times made him dead

Oh, if you did that, you may learn if he's mad at you or not, because "Hired Thugs", as they are labeled, seek out non-guild thieves. They are hired by people that you stole from, even if you killed them in the process. They will have a contract on them, that mentions who hired them to teach you a lesson for stealing from them. Hmm.

By the way, from what you are describing, I get the feeling that your resurrected elf is the version that exists, had you chose to help out his rival for the girl's affections.

There's a secret place that I've only visited once, where the dead NPCs are stored for a while. The version that died probably went there, and then the version you have now, is just a behind-the-scenes body double, that has the script for if you chose not to help. While the one that you did help, is probabably languishing in that secret place of the dead, waiting for his next cue to be used "on stage", in the game environment.

wait, so if i raise his relationship rank through console towards me, i will have the ability to hire him again ? as if i have done the love letter quest again ?

he still lets me train archery, tho. but he talks to me if i were a stranger/walker-by.

but reading your words, it seems that this archer elf isnt as good as i thought anyways, so maybe i should just forget him and find a new helper. i heard some girl in Jarl (forgot the city name) wanted to become my follower after slaying a dragon. (housecarl or what was it?)

resetquestfreeformriverwood01 to reset quest

you may have trouble getting other followers, now that i know he will still train but has no dialect for following.

lydia in whiterun is the girl btw
Rayden☆✪ May 24, 2014 @ 6:08pm 
the dark elf only follows you if you done the love letter quest. and this new dark elf guy seems to think the quest never existed, like leo star said.

but do other followers also require that you have done the love letter quest?

if not, i dont see why no other followers wanna join me.
Clever Monkey May 24, 2014 @ 6:09pm 
sometimes the game doesnt recognize that your follower died resulting in others not giving dialect to join you you can test by going to whiterun inn and buying the services of the merc there
