|Essential||Yes, until Revealing the Unseen|
Paratus is encountered during the quest Revealing the Unseen. Upon hearing that you were sent by the College of Winterhold, Paratus is very suspicious of your motives and is very secretive about the work the Synod is doing in Mzulft. He makes no secret of his disdain for the College.
- Paratus may be killed with no bounty added from any hold. He will summon a Flame Atronach or Frost Atronach to assist him if attacked. He offers very little in the way of loot, however.
- Of all members of the Synod mentioned, Paratus is one of only two living members in the game, the other being Gavros Plinius, who dies shorty after you meet him.
- Paratus is the Latin word for "ready", which is ironic considering the unprepared state of the Synod project.
