The Skull of Corruption[edit]

During the quest where you must kill him, I tried using the Skull of Corruption on him but no clone appeared but it was still considered assault and he confronted me immediately. I reloaded and used the skull on his bodyguard(I was 100% chameleon this time). No clone appeared this time either, instead the two of them started started fighting each other. --Sundaroct131088 03:48, 30 August 2007 (EDT)

The skull of corruption will not work on any guards. --NepheleTalk 12:52, 30 August 2007 (EDT)
Oh ok. That explains it. --Sundaroct131088 13:02, 30 August 2007 (EDT)
I've added the info to the Skull of Corruption page, since it's obviously a pretty important exception to "it will work on any NPC." What's not completely clear, however, is what the flag "IsGuard" used by the script means. Given that your example shows that it doesn't work on Adamus or his bodyguard, I'm inferring that it's checking the NPC's class. But more tests to confirm that could be useful: does it work on Imperial Battlemages? Does it work on guards who have been demoted/relocated (Hieronymus, Audens)? Does it work on Ulrich Leland (whose class is Knight, not Guard)? Just some random ideas if you're in the mood for firing your staff at random NPCs ;) --NepheleTalk 13:24, 30 August 2007 (EDT)
It doesn't work on guards and Imperial Legion Battlemages but it works on Ulrich Leland. It doesn't work on Hieronymus Lex either(before and after his transfer). It doesn't work on Audens initially but I don't know if it would after his demotion. --Sundaroct131088 10:42, 5 September 2007 (EDT)
It works on Audens when he comes to attack you. --Sundaroct131088 10:26, 8 September 2007 (EDT)

Reference to player's past?[edit]

I just stumbled upon this dialog in the CS: "I'm Adamus Phillida, prison administrator and commander of the Imperial Legion forces here in the Imperial City. Have we met? You look familiar." Seems like he was involved in the player being in jail at the start of the game. — Unsigned comment by (talk)

It's most likely an inside joke about how you escaped from jail and nobody seems to know about it other than you and the Blades. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk)/(Contribs) 21:47, 24 March 2008 (EDT)


Where does he sleep at before he moves to Leyawin? Or does he sleep at all? — Unsigned comment by (talk)

He sleeps in the Imperial Legion barracks between midnight and 6am. –RpehTCE 02:59, 23 March 2008 (EDT)

The Name[edit]

I sat here thinking.. Im reading a book named "Tales of the Otori". In the book a assasin(which is the main character) kill a warlord named Sadamu Iida. And I realized that the name was pretty close to Adamus Philida. He was also a high ranked warrior type of guy who was taken care off... Is that really stupid or...? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 21:21 on 12 January 2009 (GMT)

Bugged quest chat[edit]

Upon starting the quest at Nocturnals Shrine, you are able to ask the citizens of Leyawiin about Bejeen and Weebam-Na as to inquire about Nocturnals Eye.

Even if you're not up to that part in the Dark Brotherhood quests, even if you've never seen Lucien Lachance before, Adamus Pillidia will have all the gossip on Bejeen and Weebam-Na, despite still being in the Imperial City rather than Leyawiin.

This is NOT fixed by the Unofficial Oblivion Patch. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 06:38 on 7 September 2009

Good catch! —Robin Hood (TalkE-mailContribs) 23:36, 12 September 2009 (UTC)


Okay, once I went on an UNSTOPPABLE KILLING-SPREE RAMPAGE and ended up repeatedly stabbing Phillida with a Lightening Dagger to unconsciousness. Know every time I go near him he yells 'Showing your face is the last mistake you'll ever make!!' However will not attack me and just scowl at me. Help! Golden Eagle 11:57, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

A piece of advice; stay away from "unstoppable killing rampages" in a game like Oblivion. You are bound to screw something up. You should probably load an earlier save made before your rampage and start from there. --Krusty 15:23, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Random death?![edit]

So I was in Leyawiin completing a theives guild quest, and I had the quest where you have to kill him active. I break into someones house to talk to them, and I get a quest update telling me adamus phillida is dead. Thinking he died en route to Leyawiin or something, I looked at the quest map and his body was right in the middle of the lake where he swims. this happened shortly before sometime between eight and nine o clock and I was wondering - what could possibly have happened? I just found his body floating in the middle of the lake, i cant imagine random beggar pickpocketing and setting him off on a chase into the lake, his armor wasn't on him, only his shield and sword. It would seem this is a bug but... i don't know. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 01:47 on 25 February 2011

I doubt this is an important bug, but we might as well check it out for good measure. Can you remember the Thieves Guild quest you were doing? --Krusty 11:51, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
I believe it was Adarji's heirloom. It is worth noting at the very least I was in leyawinn when this bug/glitch happened. I was breaking into her house to talk to her. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 22:18 on April 10, 2011

Related Quest Imperial Corruption..[edit]

Adamus really has little to nothing to offer in this quest, in fact speaking to him at any point offers you the same options for a regular Imperial Guardsman. I'm wondering if it's necessary to include this as a related quest...since talking to him is not only entirely optional but also benefits you no more than talking to a nearby guard (except Avidius for obvious reasons, who can also be found near Jensine). TVthePunisher 21:22, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

You're right. I've removed that. rpeh •TCE 10:46, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Legion Commander for 40 years[edit]

There may be a small problem with this page. The description states that Adamus Phillida was the Legion Commander 'for 40 years', However I quote from the game '...and I'm proud to have served her for 40 years'.

This merely means that he has been in the legion for 40 years, not that he has been commander for 40 years. It it ever confirmed in the game that he was commander for 40 years. I would like to know if I'm wrong b4 I change it.

I know its a very minor thing but... I want to change it. — Unsigned comment by Firehazard96 (talkcontribs) at 11:06 on 9 November 2011 (GMT)

Yup, I think you've spotted a mistake. Go ahead and change it if you like. rpeh •TCE 13:21, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
I've rewritten the sentence concerning this. This should be satisfactory ~ Dwarfmp 14:38, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Extremely odd bug[edit]

During Next of Kin, I went into the watch tower in Leyawiin to get my target in her sleep. A couple of beds over from where she lay, at the bottom of the bed, where a chest is usually found, I saw a fully-armored, dead Adamus, head lifted slightly by the bed, holdiing a torch. I had the option to search him. I'm guessing that usually doesn't happen. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 19:25 on 10 July 2012

Potential paradox.[edit]

According to the article: After completing the Deliver the Amulet quest a note appears on the Prison Sewer entrance that says "No entry on pain of death. Sealed by authority of Commander Adamus Phillida, Imperial Legion". Does this still happen if you deliver the amulet to Weynon Priory after completing the Dark Brotherhood questline? That would be quite the paradox if so, given that Adamus Phillida's no longer in charge. Or does the note appear at some point prior to his retirement? Sheogorath 14:30, 3 June 2013 (GMT)

Body guard suicide[edit]

"His bodyguard takes it personally and commits suicide" - It's writen on the page - is it a joke? where did such an idea came from? — Unsigned comment by ‎ Micgus (talkcontribs) at 16:57 on 11 August 2013

Nope, it's quite true actually. You can read his suicide note here. Forfeit (talk) 17:00, 11 August 2013 (GMT)
pshhh... I had no idea... poor guard... I'm considering quiting the brotherhood because of that... (not really...). Damb... From the note he write it sound like he is going to destroy the Empire ;) . where can his body be found after he commits suicide?
(btw i didn't really expect that anybody would answer considering how old the game is, so thanks for proving my suspicions wrong ( - reminds me of glathir - suspicions and all that ;) ) ) — Unsigned comment by Micgus (talkcontribs) at 05:22 on 13 August 2013
According to the Permanent Retirement quest page, his corpse will be in the Leyawiin City Watch Barracks the next time you return to the city. There's a bug with it though - all bodyguards respawn, so apparently if you wait too long before returning he will be alive and never leave. — ABCface 17:54, 13 August 2013 (GMT)
