Assassins of the Dark Brotherhood are occasionally sent to track and subsequently make an attempt on your life throughout the game. The assassin's race and gender will vary between an Argonian female, a Dunmer male, or a Khajiit female.
The assassins appear as random encounters starting at level 5. Unlike hired thugs, the assassins appear for no reason and there is no way to avoid encountering them. A note detailing their mission can always be found on their bodies. The note reads:
- Shrouded Armor cannot be collected from slain assassins.
