Ranis Athrys is a Dunmer Nightblade and a member of the Mages Guild in Balmora. She is one of the characters that can be spoken to in order to join the Mages Guild. She will not offer any services to the Nerevarine until they have reached a high enough rank.
Ranis offers the following quests:
- Recruit Llarar Bereloth: A quest in Sulipund to either Recruit or Kill Llarar Bereloth.
- Manwe's Dues: In Punabi, a Mages Guild member is overdue with their Guild dues.
- Unsanctioned Training: Stop the unsanctioned training of Restoration without Guild approval.
- Escort Itermerel: Escort Itermerel to Pelagiad
- Kill Necromancer Tashpi Ashibael: Investigate necromancy occurrences in Maar Gan
- Catch a Spy: Search for a House Telvanni spy in the Mages Guild in Vivec City.
- During the "Escort Itermerel" quest, as soon as Itermerel's notes are turned in to Ranis, Itermerel will disappear forever no matter where he is located.
- If both Itermerel (Escort Itermerel) and Tashpi (Tashpi Ashibael) are left alive, an alternative conclusion to "Catch a Spy" can be unlocked where Ranis can be reported to the Archmage in Ald'ruhn as the spy, causing her expulsion from the guild. This, however, does not wield the same rewards as if the real spy was turned in.
