Byron is an essential NPC of the 'Shattered Legacy' quest and is a member of the Guardians. He spawns near the Whitreun Stables when the museum has a display count of 550, and starts looking for the player in Skyrim.

He is badly wounded because of three Morag Tong Assassins chasing him down. When he finally reaches you, he kneels before you and begs you to take a Jewel Fragment of the Amulet of Kings, revealing himself as the first Guardian, which starts the quest 'Shattered Legacy'.
