It is possible to meet him and Salonia, as well as their bodyguard walking outside of Windhelm, Whiterun, and other locations worried about being late for the wedding. If you speak with Plautis he will call you Skyrim scum and tell you to go away. You can tell him you are going to rob him, but he will run away and call for help.
It is also possible to encounter Plautis and Salonia outside of Solitude near Dragon's Bridge where the player can hear Plautis telling Salonia that the wedding will help their influence in Skyrim.
It is also possible to meet Plautis, along with Salonia, in the wilderness, wearing rags and commenting about having been attacked by bandits. Plautis will claim that their bodyguard was eaten by a dragon.
Plautis's bodyguard does not actually take them to Solitude. He merely walks down the path by the farm instead of going to the front gate. He leads them behind Solitude, off the shore off the Emperor's ship.
Effects of Actions Edit
- If caught picking Plautis' pockets, he says something about being able to forgive the crime, and the Dragonborn will not be arrested or attacked; however, some time later three Hired Thugs will appear in the wilderness. On their corpses can be found a contract which states that Plautis has sent them to "... teach a lesson to the thief, [Name]. You need not kill him, but I have no qualms about it if you deem it necessary."
- This happens even when not caught picking his pockets.
- If killed he and his wife can be looted for valuable items.
- Cyrodilic Brandy's only location without The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn is on Plautis Carvain.
- If Healing Hands or Heal Other is cast on them then they will become hostile, and the player will have to kill them in self defense - likely aided by any nearby guards.
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (First appearance)
