The Sapiarchs are a group of Altmeri mages and scholars. They can be found throughout Summerset Isle, particularly at the College of Sapiarchs and the Crystal Tower. The Sapiarchs play a key role in the main questline of the Summerset chapter. For more information, see the lore page.
There is also a style associated with this faction, the Sapiarch Style. Chapters of this style book can be found by completing repeatable quests for the Divine Prosecution. Crafting Sapiarch Style items requires Culanda Lacquer.
