|Ranis Athrys (ranis athrys)|
|Location||Guild of Mages|
|Faction(s)||Mages Guild (Wizard)|
Ranis Athrys is a Dunmer nightblade and Wizard in the Mages Guild. She serves as Guild Steward of the Balmora branch. Ranis demands respect from those who come under her authority. Due to this, some lesser mages like Ajira dislike her as a leader.
Ranis seems to naturally distrust mages not from the guild possibly due to the fact her parents were killed by a previous archmagister of House Telvanni, as mentioned by Llathyno Hlaalu. Most quests given by Ranis involve the affairs of other mages, meaning the conversion or destruction of mages outside the Guild.
Ranis is wearing an expensive robe with a matching ring and shoes. She is carrying a steel tanto. Aside from her natural resistance to fire and the sanctuary provided by her ancestors, she knows the following spells: Crushing Burden Touch, Great Burden of Sin, Heavy Burden, Fifth Barrier, Sixth Barrier, Strong Feather, Ulms's Juicedaw's Feather, Tinur's Hoptoad, Concealment, Far Silence, Shadowmask, and Soul Trap.
Additionally, she is also one of the people who will let you join the guild, as well as a medium trainer in Mysticism, and a minor trainer in Alteration and Illusion. You must be at least a conjurer in the guild to access her services.
- Recruit or Kill Llarar Bereloth: Take a recruitment trip to a Telvanni in Sulipund.
- Manwe's Dues: Retrieve guild dues from a Mages Guild member in Punabi.
- Unsanctioned Training: Stop an Argonian from offering Restoration training without the Guild's approval.
- Escort Itermerel: Escort the scholar Itermerel to Pelagiad.
- Kill Necromancer Tashpi Ashibael: Investigate a possible case of necromancy in Maar Gan.
- Catch a Spy: Search for a Telvanni spy who has infiltrated the Guild.
- Stolen Reports: Find Ajira's stolen reports on mushrooms and flowers.
- A Wizard's Staff: Procure a Wizard's Staff required for the rank of Wizard.
- bet with Galbedir: "Yes, I know all about their bet. I did the same things when I was an apprentice. You might as well do what Ajira asks."
- Little is known about Ranis' background other than she was born into an upper class Dunmer family, possibly from House Hlaalu. Her parents were murdered at the hands of a previous archmagister of House Telvanni, which gave Ranis a natural sense of hate and distrust for people practicing the use of magicka - no matter at what level - outside the Mages Guild. One possible reason for her joining the Mages Guild, apart from natural magical ability, was to cause as much damage to House Telvanni as possible.
- It is possible to get Ranis kicked out of the Mages Guild by letting both Itermerel and Tashpi live (during the Escort Itermerel and Kill Necromancer Tashpi Ashibael quests, respectively) and then reporting her as the spy during Catch a Spy to Trebonius Artorius.
