Barilzar was a skilled mage from the mid-Second Era, who created a powerful artifact named the Mazed Band. This artifact is known to be able to open the gates between Mundus and Oblivion, and can allow the user to brings multitudes of Daedra from Oblivion into Mundus. Because of his unholy creation, Barilzar was cursed for eternity. He could not leave the mortal plane, and lived as a lich, guarding the Mazed Band.
Almalexia, one of the Tribunal Gods, has requested that the ring Barilzar created, the Mazed Band, be given to her. The Nerevarine must enter the Abandoned Crypt, where Barilzar lurks under Mournhold, and obtain the ring.
Once you get near Barilzar, he will say to you:
Barilzar will then attack using a Daedric Claymore. He must killed during this quest, and his Mazed Band can be taken from his remains.
- Despite being such a powerful creature, Barilzar has a very low Soul Gem level (Petty Soul Gem).
- Barilzar is level 45, one of the highest levels of any non-playable character in the game.
