* SkippableBoss: Of a sort. Depending on who your spouse is, she may never make an appearance; for various reasons, some of the spouses cannot be kidnapped. And of course, you'll never see her if your Dragonborn doesn't get married.



* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: After you [[spoiler:defeat Miraak]], she will give you a piece of advice of this kind by saying [[spoiler:you do not need to follow the same path as him and become Mora's champion]]:

* GreaterScopeVillain: To Alduin and the main quest. Being that he is a Dragonborn just as powerful as you if not moreso, ''and'' he has [[spoiler:untold centuries of study under a Daedric Prince]] to hone his powers and knowledge, he's built up as an even greater threat than Alduin. Characters including Miraak himself note that he's probably capable of taking out Alduin himself if you haven't done it, so if you can't prevent his resurrection, he'll TakeOverTheWorld and nothing and no one will be able to stop him.

If you confront him before completing the main quest, his reaction to meeting another Dragonborn is "so you've killed a few dragons, am I supposed to be impressed?" Post-main quest, he comments he could have easily killed Alduin himself, but [[OptOut chose another path]]. He also considers himself above servitude to anyone, whether it be dragons or [[spoiler:Hermaeus Mora.

* SmugSuper: Miraak practically [[{{Pride}} oozes]] [[FatalFlaw it]]. Unlike the Dragonborn, who was at first in the dark about their legend, destiny and powers, relying on the Greybeards and the Blades for information; Miraak has millennia of knowledge and experience, claiming that the Dragonborn has only scratched the surface of their potential.

* TrueFinalBoss: Of the full game, since ''Dragonborn'' is the last DLC. Accordingly he's built up to be the player's EvilCounterpart and even more powerful than them in-story; much of ''Dragonborn'' is to power yourself up to get to Miraak's level so you can challenge him as an equal.

[[spoiler:He also wants to absorb ''your'' draconic soul. After Hermaeus Mora kills him, you consume his soul.

* ArchEnemy: Invoked by Neloth, who refers to her as his "Nemesis" when he learns about her survival. From a technical point of view though, the trope is downplayed; he treats her as a nuisance at best, and doesn't even bother dealing with her himself, instead sending the Dragonborn to kill her. She, on the other hand, certainly sees ''him'' as ''her'' ArchEnemy, as illustrated in her journals.

* FullSetBonus: Taken a step further than the usual. His four pieces of armor not only confer special powers when worn together, but the gauntlets boost dual-wielding damage, and his two swords only get their unique effects when used together.

* FourStarBadass: In life, he was a decorated Imperial officer. In undeath, he believes that he's still one (since he doesn't realize that he's been dead for 200 years).

* GoodScarsEvilScars: His moniker comes from a scar on his face. A rumor goes it's a mark of a pact he made with Mehrunes Dagon for long life and powerful equipment.

* ShroudedInMyth: He lived a long time; the ''Deathbrand'' book recounts his quartermaster's grandfather served under Haknir sixty years ago, at which point Haknir was already a famous pirate king. Rumors abound in-game about how he lived so long. The book further notes its contents are just stories that have been passed down through the years and now transcribed, and it's hard to say if there's any truth to the words.

* BraggingRightsReward: The only reward you get for killing him is the loot on his body, which amounts to a few potions, some high-value gemstones, and his equipment. It's far and away better than the standard VendorTrash most enemies leave behind, but if you're at a point you can kill him, you've no need for any of it.

* GreaterScopeVillain: To Alduin and the main quest. Being that he is a Dragonborn just as powerful as you if not moreso, ''and'' he has [[spoiler:untold centuries of study under a Daedric Prince]] to hone his powers and knowledge, he's built up as an even greater threat than Alduin. Characters including Miraak himself note that he's probably capable of taking out Alduin himself if you haven't done it, so if you can't prevent his resurrection, he'll TakeOverTheWorld and nothing and no one will be able to stop him.



* TrueFinalBoss: Of the full game, since ''Dragonborn'' is the last DLC and he's built up as an even more dangerous threat then Alduin. If Alduin is dead or alive is irrelevant, because Miraak is probably capable of killing Alduin himself anyway, so if you can't stop his return, he'll TakeOverTheWorld and nothing and no one will be able to stop him.

Their equipment pieces are adorned with the image of a flaming sun, their unique "Rune" weapons deal sun damage, and their unique spells take the form of projectiles and auras of [[LightEmUp light]].

* InformedAttribute: The Creation Kit reveals that his class is [[TheBlacksmith Blacksmith]] and his Smithing skill is high, but he does not show it, at least in the game proper (one is because he is the leader of the Dawnguard, the other reason is Gunmar, the resident blacksmith, is already present, so scripting Isran to do smithing work will be redundant). On the other hand, early in the Dawnguard questline the members have said that Isran have been preparing to fight the vampires by stacking up stocks of armaments, and the lack of funds implied that he made most of them himself.

* {{Jerkass}}: Isran has insulted or driven away almost every other member of the Dawnguard, which is part of the reason he needs the Dragonborn to recruit them. Even when Dexion (member of an immensely respected order of scholars) arrives in Fort Dawnguard, he'll note that Isran was rather unpleasant with him.

The very first words that come out of his mouth are "My long-lost daughter returns at last! I trust you have my Elder Scroll?" Serana immediately lampshades that ''that's'' the first thing on his mind seeing her again.

Added DiffLines:

* DevelopersForesight: Durnehviir's acknowledgement of you being a Dragonborn is based on how far you are in the main quest. It has three different stages - before absorbing your first Dragon Soul, he will refer to you as a fellow dov but doesn't know why (see HyperAwareness below). If you have already finished your training with the Greybeards, he will acknowledge you being a Dragonborn and so you are dragon in spirit. If you have finished the main quest, he humors you in that the news of Nirn travel there and complements the player for defeating Alduin.

* ArchEnemy: Invoked by Neloth, who refers to her as his "Nemesis" when he learns about her survival. From a technical point of view though, the trope is subverted; he treats her as a nuisance at best, and doesn't even bother dealing with her himself, instead sending the Dragonborn to kill her. She, on the other hand, certainly sees ''him'' as ''her'' ArchEnemy, as illustrated in her journals.
