Legate Quentin Cipius is a member of the Imperial Legion. He appears inside Dragonsreach after the quest Message to Whiterun for the Imperial Legion is completed.

As an essential character, he cannot die, even after the Civil War questline has been completed.


He can be found north of Gjukar's Monument and east of Rorikstead before a side has chosen in the civil war.


Battle for Whiterun



  • He can be found standing near a ruined monolith east of Rorikstead.
    • This may happen when Whiterun has been captured for the Imperials, but he will still appear here despite the fact the Imperial Whiterun camp is no longer there.
    • If found alone east of Rorikstead, attacking will cause him to become hostile, but no bounty will incur. When his health reaches zero, he falls to his knees and regains full health after a few seconds. Upon standing up, he is no longer hostile. This allows the player to level up combat and destruction skills by repeatedly attacking him with no penalty.
  • When using Detect Life he shows as an enemy.
