Acilius Bolar was originally stationed at Cloud Ruler Temple. After the Thalmor attacked the Blades stronghold, he was the only known survivor of the attack. From there, Bolar traveled north to Skyrim, eventually ending up at Bloated Man's Grotto. However he was pursued by the Thalmor and as such, to prevent the Thalmor from "desecrating" the shrine went to "face his death with honour", Suggesting he left the grotto and hoped that if the Thalmor killed him then they would not enter the grotto and as such be unable to destroy the shrine to Talos.
- Bolar's Oathblade belonged to Acilius Bolar before his death, and can be found at the feet of a statue of Talos.
