Phrastus of Elinhir is an Imperial scholar, well-known for the many books he has published on the Daedra and various other topics, and his questions-and-answers sessions he has with various others interested in the history and lore of Tamriel.
Phrastus authored the following books:
- Daedra Worship: The Chimer
- Daedra Worship: The Ayleids
- Exegesis of Merid-Nunda
- Field Guide to Spriggans
- The Heartland of Cyrodiil
- Introduction to Aedric Studies
- The Onus of the Oghma
- The Bretons: Mongrels or Paragons?
- On the Nature of Coldharbour
- Unhallowed Legions

- Unlike his rival, Phrastus is a strong believer in the concept of The Towers. He says that tampering with the Tel Var Stones may well result in the destruction of Mundus, as they have a strong connection to the White-Gold Tower.
- Phrastus is featured prominently in the Loremaster's Archive articles which are published every week on the Online website.
