Dovahbit of Caerbannog

Rabbit Themed Mods

Give Dovahbit hats to wear!
He is the ultimate utility, non-combat pet!

Where to find him:
Dragonsreach, in Farengar's study.
If you can't find him, try to restart your game
Make sure you read the known issues and compatibility notes! Do not come here and tell me it doesn't work untill you do that.

If you have a follower mod such as UFO or AFT, you might want to get the alternate version (look in the collection above). Or get both!

-Fixed a small bug possibly related to dovahbit disappearing

-Added wearable headgear: Imperial medium, leather, forsworn, merchant hat, jester hat, chef hat
-Added silver amulet (any kind of regular amulet will work)
-Doubled carry weight limit
Dovahbit lost his circlet in a volleyball match with the horker king


Sir Dovahbit of Caerbannog is the ultimate support pet!
He is no ordinary rabbit!

He's small and doesn't get in the way, perfect if you need someone to carry your stuff but find companions too annoying and big. He won't fight but rather run off to do his own things when you are in combat. He knows you can handle it and doesn't want to ruin your fun.

He's a great companion for stealth characters, he'll never initiate combat and has a very high stealth rating. You can even use him to lure enemies! He doesn't mind.
You can order him to steal things and empty containers for you! Just make sure the owner doesn't see you and he won't suspect a thing.

He's the ultimate follower to all the alchemists out there! Simply command him to harvest ingredients on your behalf and he will gather FIVE times as many ingredients from a single source!

He's an animal follower, so you can have another follower at the same time.

He has a tiny magical bag where he stores all the things you give him!

He loves hats!
Give Dovahbit one of the following helmets to make him wear it:

Blades Helmet
Daedric Helmet
Dragonplate Helmet
Dragonscale Helmet
Dwarven Helmet
Ebony Helmet
Elven Helmet
Falmer Helmet
Hide Helmet (heavy)
Hide Helmet (light)
Imperial Helmet (light)
Imperial Officer Helmet
Iron Helmet
Orcish Helmet
Steel Helmet (light)
Steel Helmet (heavy)
Stormcloak Officer Hat
Jester Hat
Chef Hat
Imperial Helmet (medium)
Leather Helmet
Forsworn Helmet
Merchant Hat
Amulets (will show up silver)

Any other helmet will look like an iron helmet.


Dovahbit was once the most powerful mage of all times untill he accidentally transformed himself into a rabbit and... started to enjoy it a little too much. Now all he cares about is seeing new places and eating carrots.

Dovahbit is extremely powerful and extremely lazy, don't expect him to help. He's got better things to do!

Dovahbit can defeat Alduin with little effort, but he always gets distracted and forgets about it.

Dovahbit does not mind getting shouted off cliffs, he finds it amusing.

Dovahbit does not care if people laugh about him, he knows he could vaporize them in an instant.

Dovahbit is aware of how adorable he looks.

Dovahbit was once thrown off the Throat of the World by the Greybeards for eating all their food.

Dovahbit claims he was Tiber Septim's pet.

Dovahbit has been an assassination target for the Dark Brotherhood 547 times.

Dovahbit always gets all the ladies; do not bring him with you at the inn.

Dovahbit once won a pranking contest against Sheogorath


Q: Dovahbit is being mean and won't talk to me
A: Make sure you don't have any other pet follower with you.
Try typing:
set playeranimalcount to 0
in the console and talk to him twice. If that don't work, you might have a follower mod that is not compatible. Starting a new game might work as a last resort, but no promises.

Q: I can't trade with him!
A: You have a follower mod that is not compatible.

Q: He transformed into a giant lizard monster and oh god my family he's eating my family

Q: Aside from hats, will he be able to wear other things in the future?
A: Possibly.

Q: Something doesn't work / is buggy / I can't live without my other companion mods! What should I do?
A: Most of the bugs, known issues and compatibility problems are not present in the alternative version of the mod, Dovahare. You can find it in the "Rabbit Themed Mods" collection above.

Known Issues:
-There is no starting dialogue, he'll start following the first time you interact with him
-When giving him a command or when he's standing still and you start moving, he'll take a few seconds to finish his animation before proceeding
-The dialogue might get stuck after ordering him to do something. Either save and reload or change area to fix it
-You can't command him by holding E while looking at him, you have to do it through dialogue


He is not compatible with follower mods such as UFO and AFT. If you have any of the sort, make sure you load dovahbit.esp BEFORE them, however, do not expect everything to work properly.
Get Dovahare instead: (look in the "Rabbit Themed Mods" collection above)

To allow Dovahbit to wear his snazzy hats this mod has to touch a few vanilla files related to helmets. If you are concerned or experience problems, simply move the mod on top of your load order, and worst case scenario you won't be able to make him wear hats (which is a pretty awful thing, by the way)

Can Dovabit or Dovahare become Children's Pets?

This is hands down one of my favorite mods! I dont use any companion usually cause they get in my way but not Dovahbit. Dovahbit is THE BEST out of everyone and anyone!
