"I think we could blow up half of Eastmarch, and people would still come to us for enchantments."
―Sergius Turrianus[src]

Sergius Turrianus is an Imperial enchanter working and living at the College of Winterhold.


Sergius Turrianus teaches Enchanting at the expert-level. If the Dragonborn's enchanting exceeds what Sergius can teach, and they ask him to enchant items for them, he tells them to do it themselves.

He can be found in the Hall of the Elements by day. At night, he sleeps on the second floor in the Hall of Countenance.



"The local Nords may not like us very much, but they don't seem to mind having access to enchanted weapons and armor."

I need something enchanted. "I'm sure you can figure it out on your own. If you can't, perhaps Urag has a book you can read."
Thanks for nothing. "My pleasure."
Can't you do it for me? "No. No I can't. I have enough to keep me busy. View it as a chance to hone your craft."


  • "Enchanting services are one of the few things that keeps us in touch with the rest of Skyrim."

  • "You've come to the right place. I'd be happy to teach you." —When asked for training with Enchanting.
  • "Here. Something I want you to have. Now, don't get all sappy by bothering the both of us." —After completing a quest for him.

  •  PC   360   PS3   Using Sergius as an Enchanting Trainer, a way to get spent money back without being caught at a low pickpocket level is to basically stun/paralyze him to the point he does not know it happened, even in public. The easiest way is to use the "Ice Form" shout on him, then promptly use the "Healing Hands" Restoration spell on him. Once used Healing Hands, when the ice shatters, immediately pickpocket him for the GoldIcon. If done fast enough, he will simply stand back up for more training with the occasional gripe. This also works on all other trainers.
  •  PC   360   PS3   If Sergius is killed before completing a pick-up quest he gave, the item that was received from the contact person will be still in the inventory. It cannot be removed, because the console will say, "Quest items can't be removed from your inventory." The item cannot be enchanted nor given to a follower.
