Commander Maro is an Imperial warrior and the leader of the Penitus Oculatus stationed in Skyrim, responsible for the Emperor's security on his visit. His son, Gaius Maro, is also a Penitus Oculatus officer: you will be ordered to kill him in the quest Breaching Security. Commander Maro later defeats the majority of the Dark Brotherhood in retaliation for his son's death, destroying their sanctuary and killing several members in Death Incarnate. After brokering a deal with Astrid stating that if he was allowed to kill you (the murderer of his son) he must then leave the Brotherhood alone, he reneged on his promise and attacked the Sanctuary regardless. It is possible to exact revenge on him in Hail Sithis!. You can find him during this quest on the docks outside Solitude. He will express shock and fear at the fact that you survived his purging of your Sanctuary and immediately attack you to finish the job.
Commander Maro wears a set of Penitus Oculatus equipment. This includes the Penitus Oculatus armor, a pair of Penitus Oculatus bracers, and a pair of Penitus Oculatus boots. He is equipped with a steel greatsword.
