|Arch-Mage Taris Rendil|
Taris Rendil was an Arch-Mage of the Mages Guild who constructed Frostcrag Spire. Rendil was dissatisfied with living in the Arcane University, so he constructed the Spire in the lofty Jerall Mountains of Cyrodiil to escape his colleagues' prying eyes. He was the creator of the Spire's Atronach Altar, and also collaborated with Sinderion of Skingrad to develop the Frostcrag Apparatus Table. He was in some way associated with Lennasaan and Rindsey, two great adventurers who were buried in an ice cave that served as the underground vault of the Spire.
When age began to overwhelm Rendil, he entrusted many of his belongings to Aurelinwae of the Imperial City. A long-lost relative of Rendil's, the Champion of Cyrodiil, was his sole heir and successor and inherited the Spire in 3E 433. Rendil wrote the Frostcrag Spire Memoirs on his deathbed, leaving instructions on how to restore the Spire to its former glory. His dying wish was granted by the Champion of Cyrodiil, who compensated Aurelinwae and returned Rendil's possessions to the tower.
