Heroes of the Wade #01 – Markas
Mod for Skyrim Special Edition.
Markas – Companion Follower
v1.0 – 3.32 MB
Or you can download from NexusMods.
You can see him like Farkas and Vilkas little cousin, but Markas is not someone to mess with.
Raised and trained among the Companions, he’s young but a skilled and brave Nord warrior. He’s still not so sure about that whole werewolf thing and has kept himself clean for now.
You can find him hanging around in Jorrvaskr, and he will gladly follow you for some adventure.
He prefers a two handed battle axe and heavy armor. He has a few perks for that, and a healing spell, just in case. His level is based on your level and he will grow stronger with you 😀
He’s set essential, so he won’t die on you in the middle of a fight. And he’s marriageable. Please be kind to him, he’s a sweetheart.
The mod itself has just the face morph and hair, you can use it with the vanilla game or any textures and body types of your choice. SOS friendly (fully tested :D).
The appearance might change based on the texture you use. To have him look exactly like the pictures here’s a few mods I used (to them all the credits):
KS hairdo’s for males (the hair textures are in the zip file so you don’t need to install the whole mod).
Tempered skin for males (young smooth version) VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Really. I tested him with the vanilla textures and now I am scarred for life.
Expressive facegen morphs (should not be needed since the .nif file is already in there).
Natural eyes (I like those but it should work with vanilla eyes or any eye replacer you have installed).
The armor and weapon textures/meshes are not included, he will use the vanilla ones or the ones you have installed as a replacer. (I use so many mods I lost track but mines should be from Book of Silence).
RDO – Relationship dialogue overhaul (the npc uses the default male voice which is fine for followers, but I still recommend this mod because it makes the game so much better).
If you use Vortex mod manager go to your mod list and click on “install from file” on the top bar. Select the .zip file you downloaded and click ok. Should work fine. You can install or remove at any point of the game without issues (just remember to retrieve any gear/inventory stuff you gave him or they will disappear into nothingness).
Just unzip the file and copy the .esp and the meshes and textures folders in the Data folder of your Skyrim game. (Should be something like: [wherever you have installed Steam] > steamapps > common > Skyrim Special Edition > Data)
