He currently resides in an alchemy shop named The White Phial serving as an apprentice for Nurelion, an old and sick Altmer whose life obsession is the find the legendary White Phial. He was originally from Cyrodiil, but traveled to Skyrim just for the opportunity to work for Nurelion.
Three days after completing the quest Quintus will send the Dragonborn a letter saying that he can repair the Phial given some rare ingredients. Reading the letter will trigger the next quest, Repairing the Phial. Once all the ingredients have been gathered, return to him and watch him repair the Phial. He takes the Phial upstairs to show it to his dying master. As soon as he does, Nurelion finally dies. Quintus states that his master died happy realizing his life's work was completed. However, he can't stand to have the Phial around anymore because it reminds him of Nurelion's obsession. Instead, he gives it to the Dragonborn.
