Unused content

  • This hat's materials can be found in the all_class folder in the GCF, suggesting it was originally designed to be worn by all classes.


  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was one of several games not available for pre-order in the United Kingdom and Russia, originally preventing consumers in these regions from directly earning the item in Genuine quality.
  • The hat is named after the main character of Skyrim, the "Dovahkiin" (or "Dragonborn"); both names mean "one who is born with the soul of a dragon".[2]
