41 Jordis the Sword-Maiden

Difficult to get in your early game but she sounds happy to Carry your burdens so were going to kill Lydia now

Nice voice, heavy armor and 1 handed weapon skills.

Surprised she is this low. Awesome follower in my opinion

42 Golldir

You can get him very early on in the game, and even though I am not sure as to how high his level goes, I know for sure that he makes extremely good use of heavy armour and weapons, and if you're the "Warrior type", having Golldir along side you, both rushing into combat with your weapons drawn is something of a UNIQUE experience:))

You get to help him save his ancestors from a necromancer, and he has a lot of perks which many other followers don't have.

Level up to 30... He can use bow, one/two handed weapons and heavy armor plus he can't die

Golldir!?... Well, a golden smile, of course!

43 Barbas

Invincible while essential dog. Annoying and bad for stealth, but can kill anyone and never die

I miss Barbas, wish I'd never given him back now but his constant barking and nudging really started winding me up.

Barbas is so annoying though, so I just keep him at the sanctuary for backup when I need him

44 Meresine

Fiery dragon hunter and marksman who hails from Morrowind. She is quite adept in Light Armor and Block, making her a good tank against challenging enemies. Her unique voice and dialogue options suits her personality perfectly. A must-have follower.

She's a real firebrand and very passionate about riding Skyrim of dragons. An ideal companion for the Dragonborn.

I think MOD characters shouldn't be on the list, ANYWHERE. They aren't in the regular game, so they have no place or reason to be here.

45 Telvas

This is only my second follower after Lydia died, but I don't see much point in changing to anyone else. If Telvas and myself conjure a fire elemental then there is four of us and getting through most caves is pretty easy.

He is just awesome, no more to be said

A dark elf expert in destruction magic and in conjuration, can be found in tel mithryn after destroying the ash guardian

No level cap, very cool equipment and pretty a smile. Just saying...

Easily the most beautiful maiden, and looks fabulous in Dawnguard armour.

Just disgraceful! Inward is the much better version of Mjoll the lioness and she is super hawt and feisty!

48 Ralis Sedarys

This dude is a KILLING MACHINE. Light armor, high sneak, and strong. He likes to dual wield and that turns him into a ' Cuisinart as he dices up every mob in sight, and his light armor skill is so high he can tank! Don't kill him...recruit this and watch yourself become his sidekick.

49 Steadfast Dwarven Sphere

The fact that you can remake him if he dies and loot him makes him a bolt/gold source, along with his base attack being him due to crossbow and built in dwarfed dagger. Decent eefense, too.

Really great follower but you can only get him if you have the dragonborn DLC he is a good companion for levels 10-50

50 Ahtar

Ahtar is one of my all-time favorite followers! Where else are you going to get the Headsman's Axe? Nowhere.

When entering Solitude for the first time, the first thing you see is Ahtar chopping of someone's head. Enough said.

Probably one of the most intimidating looking dudes in the game. He's chill and got swagger, he also has one of a kind armor and the headsman's axe. He got mad skillz too

54 Athis

Very handy with One-Handed weapons and Heavy Armor, he also makes a great Blade.

55 Roggi Knot-Beard

Had him for my first follower after Lydia and gave him dragon scale armor and shield and one hand axe and he was a little weak at the start but cool dude. Always wants some mead lol. After a bit of traveling and leveling I went into a cave and it had 5 enemies right off the bat. Then I watched him charge into battle and proceed to wreck the lot of them and them clear out the cave with me following and watching. Only got rid of him at lv 60 when we battled a dragon and he ran off back to his home town after taking a point blank hit from a dragons fire breath. And nearly died. That's when I realized he was done leveling and out of his league. But had such good memories with him I let home keep the gear (and some mead) eventually became the gaurd of my house and defended it from endless supply of raiders.

56 Lob

Lob is a great follower he is two handed wears Orc armour all the time unless you don't give him Orc but if you give him way better armour he will use that armour. Lob is an awesome follower and you need to do Orc missions to be able to have him.

Don't get him sometimes I can't find him then he's licking ball in a shack

I love lob I married him he is so cool with the malaccath armour and he is 2-handed

57 Iona

Very good in most heavy armor. She is my wife and I love her.

I have had Iona from Riften for most of my game. She beasts most bandit camps before I can even reach them. She has a pretty good carry weight and and is one of the quieter followers (I hate talkative companions like Mjoll and Lydia). She has also never glitched on me.

58 Faendal

Better than Sven. Light armored, trains in archery, and has himself a bow, quiver of arrows, and dagger. Pretty faithful. Not the best but he is my most common follower. I've armed him with thieves guild armor, only gauntlets and and boots are imperial steel enchanted with 15% increase on archery and one armed combat. He has a steel shield, imperial bow, steel arrows, dwarven dagger, sky forge steel sword and a torch. Shame he doesn't do destruction, restoration, and/or conjuration but you can't have everything. I understand your choice though if you disagree. If you agree, I am overjoyed(not literally) and the picture you see him in is totally awesome. Thanks for reading.
