Bonemen are draugr-like undead who inhabit the plane of Oblivion known as the Soul Cairn. Bonemen appear as black skeleton fighters with minimal armor, with a similar assortment of weaponry to their mundane brethren. Unlike draugr, however, they dissolve into black liquid puddles upon defeat. It is possible for the Dragonborn to learn a Shout that will summon a Boneman to fight.

Bonemen can be encountered throughout the Soul Cairn, and either will be standing by at the ready or will seemingly dig themselves out of unmarked graves to attack the unwary.

Finally, these undead can also be summoned by a Vampire Lord or Durnehviir in the material world of Nirn.
