Taken from the Penitus Oculatus Agents, in Dragon Bridge or Castle Dour, killed during the Dark Brotherhood quests — "To Kill an Empire," "Breaching Security" and "Death Incarnate." It can also be looted from the corpses of their wearers during the "Battle for Solitude" in the Civil War questline.
The Penitus Oculatus Armor is a black, tight-fitting armor with a pleated girdle and bears semblance to the style of armor used by the Praetorian Guard, from Imperial Rome – the inspiration for the Imperial Legion.
The insignia on the breast displays the symbol of the Cyrodilic Emperor, the Amulet of Kings, with an eye in the middle of the diamond. In Latin, Oculatus roughly translates as 'seeing' and this motif is fitting for the Emperor's bodyguards.
The design overall is identical to the unique cuirass worn by General Tullius, albeit in black and silver as opposed to red and gold as well as being less ornate.
