Primate Artorius

Primate Artorius Ponticus is an Imperial and the head of the Akatosh Chantry, as well as its military arm, the Order of the Hour. He resides in Kvatch's Cathedral of Akatosh.

A powerful and influential figure, Primate Artorius has spent almost his whole life in service to Akatosh, and is considered the religious authority of Cyrodiil. As Primate, Artorius oversees all aspects of Akatosh worship in the Cathedral. He is supported equally by Grand Chanter Surus and Grand Sermonizer Fithia.

Despite his religious station, Artorious is also secretly embroiled in political subterfuge and seeks to shape the political landscape of the Gold Coast. With his vast network of spies and informants hidden throughout the Gold Coast, many herald him as a stabilizing force in the region for most of his reign. Currently he is caught in a feud with the Dark Brotherhood, and enlisted the help of the Black Dragon to eradicate them. He is also involved in a three-way power struggle for control of the Gold Coast.

Artorius appears to have some form of control over time, as he will freeze everyone but himself and taunt the player with the "power of Akatosh" during the final battle. However this power is actually an AoE paralyze spell, as displayed in the Status Effects menu.
