"The Forsworn have taken Kolskeggr Mine. We're the only ones left."
―Pavo Attius[src]

Pavo Attius

Pavo Attius is an Imperial and the owner of Kolskeggr Mine.


Pavo is initially found at the Left Hand Mine outside Markarth, and formerly worked Kolskeggr Mine. Unfortunately, the Forsworn massacred all the workers and chased off Pavo and his fellow miner Gat gro-Shargakh. Pavo shares his woeful story, and asks the Dragonborn to help. Pavo is a Marriage candidate if the player is wearing the Amulet of Mara after finishing his quest.


Kolskeggr MineEdit

Skaggi Scar-Face can be asked about Kolskeggr Mine, where the player can offer their help in clearing the mine, where afterwards they can return to Pavo and tell him the news. Pavo ca also be asked about the quest directly, negating the need to talk to Skaggi to obtain the quest. The reward is leveled gold, (up to 10 GoldIcon).

Mine OreEdit

Get paid to mine ore. (radiant)


Skaggi: "Troll's blood, what happened to you, Pavo?"
Pavo: "The Forsworn have taken Kolskeggr Mine. We're the only ones left."
Skaggi: "Gods....You head inside and get some rest. I'll send word to the Jarl."


  • "The Forsworn have taken Kolskeggr Mine. We're the only ones left."
  • "Are you alright, Gat?"


  • Once Pavo returns to Kolskeggr Mine, he will offer to buy gold ore from the player for 50 GoldIcon per piece. His services may be of limited use, however (see bugs below).
  • If Pavo dies after finishing his quest, the Dragonborn may receive a Letter of Inheritance from a courier along with a sum of GoldIcon (minus the Jarl's tax).


This section contains bugs related to Pavo Attius. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  360   PS4   Fulfilling the quest and letting the miners reclaim control of Kolskeggr Mine may not really help them. The Forsworn outside the mine will respawn the next time one visits and may kill the workers if they are not saved.
  • Possible general game physics engine bug; when Pavo Attius leaves the miner's barracks at Left Hand Mine after the Kolskeggr Mine has been cleared of Forsworn and he has paid the reward, he may rebound off the door and launch into the air, eventually crashing back to the ground and dying on impact.
  • Pavo may offer the Dragonborn the quest twice.
