Illia

Illia is an Imperial mage in found in Darklight Tower. The Dragonborn will be confronted by her after entering the tower and witnessing her killing a witch. She can be recruited as a follower after completing her quest. With the Hearthfire add-on, she also can become a steward.

Vision

Illia is a reformed Hag. In vanilla Skyrim, she plays as a frost specialised mage. I wanted to keep the the frost aspect, but also emphasise the darkness of her former life. To that end she has developed a special ability that enables her to summon alternate possibilities of herself, had her life been different. Notably this power manifests itself spontaneously in combat should Illia’s health decrease below a certain level. Her primary attack element is frost, having the bulk of her attack spells being single target frost spells. She has a minor ability in fire spells, which she may use on occasion. She has almost no ability in restoration, capable only of minor self healing. Her actual spell profile will change depending on which spell mods are installed.
