[[File:TESV_Psijic_Order_Visit.png|thumb|200px|Quaranir visiting the Dragonborn.]]
Upon entering the room that the Eye is housed in, the [[Dragonborn]] and [[Tolfdir]] discover that the massive orb is guarded by a [[Draugr (Skyrim)|draugr]] named [[Jyrik Gauldurson]], one of the sons of the ancient arch-mage [[Gauldur]]. When an attempt is made to damage Jyrik, Tolfdir states that the Eye is allowing for Gauldurson to become invulnerable to damage, and thus begins to cast lightning spells at the Eye, subsequently allowing for the Dragonborn to damage and kill Jyrik.
After destroying the creature, Tolfdir sends the Dragonborn on an errand to research the Eye of Magnus ([[Hitting the Books]]). Finding the research material in [[Fellglow Keep]], the Dragonborn reads more about the object in [[Night of Tears]].
