Vlastarus was a settlement located in the Greenmead region of Cyrodiil's West Weald, along the Gold Road east of Skingrad. The town was built around a lone and ancient Imperial watchtower called the Eye of the Greenmead, which was built long before the town was ever founded. The tower was once located at the southern edge of the town.[1]

During the Three Banners War of 2E 582, Vlastarus was a bustling town. It was largely untouched by the war, attracting refugees from all over Cyrodiil. However, the town was threatened by an increase in the number of undead, Daedra, and bandits in the surrounding countryside, and the nearby ruins of Vlastarus Towers were occupied by a bandit gang known as the Gray Vipers led by a hag named Fegra. Vlastarus was initially located within the territory held by the Aldmeri Dominion, although the town and the nearby Castle Brindle changed hands many times over the course of the war.[2]

At around the same time, the Vlastarus Cohort was considered one of the best troops in the Colovian armies, and were present in the Colovian annexation of Reaper's March. They splintered themselves from the main invasion force that took control of Arenthia, so that they may defeat the Vinedusk Rangers that settled southwest from the city. They built their camp in the Ayleid ruins east of their village, where their original founder Nendaer the Ironbark was buried.[3] After they successfully expelled the Colovians from the village,[4] they made their way toward their camp and razed the entire area. The Vlastarus Cohort and their leader Festius were defeated.[5]

The Imperial Legion later built a fort at Vlastarus, but it was abandoned by the Legion during the relatively peaceful Third Era.[6] By 3E 433, nothing remained of the town other than the vampire-infested ruins of Fort Vlastarus.[7] At around this time, the fort contained one of the last samples of Shadowbanish Wine.[8]
