"This is the only book store in the city. There's also Renoit's Books in Chorrol, Mach-Na's in Cheydinhal, and Southern Books in Leyawiin."

Phintias quote

Phintias is a Redguard living in the Imperial City. He is the proprietor of the First Edition book store in the Market District.

He has a small part in the quest Path of Dawn. If the Hero raises his disposition to 80, he will sell them "Commentaries on the Mysterium Xarxes: Volume 3" for 100 GoldIcon.


Path of DawnEdit

After discovering that the Amulet of Kings was taken by the Mythic Dawn during the assault on Weynon Priory, Jauffre wants the Hero to meet with Baurus in Imperial City to help find the location of the Amulet of Kings. The Hero needs to find all four volumes of the Mythic Dawn Commentaries. Mythic Dawn Commentaries 3, can be obtained by persuading Phintias to give up his only copy if his disposition with the Hero is 80 or higher.

Nothing You Can PossessEdit

Umbacano has asked the Hero to retrieve a carved panel from an Ayleid site known only as the High Fane in his sources. The Hero can purchase the book Cleansing of the Fane from Phintias.

Order of the Virtuous BloodEdit

Seridur tells the Hero about his group of vampire hunters called the Order of the Virtuous Blood. Basically, they kill vampires to cleanse Cyrodiil. Their first target is Roland Jenseric, whom Seridur claims to have witnessed bite and kill his own girlfriend, Relfina. Roland refers to Phintias for more proof of Seridur's outings.

Tears of the SaviorEdit

After talking to S'drassa about Garridan's Tears, they need to go to the Arcane University in the Imperial City and ask Julienne Fanis about the Tears. She refers the Hero to a book, Knightfall, available at the First Edition bookstore in the Market District, if they want to learn more about possible locations of Garridan's Tears.
