Khenarthi, the Elder Spirit of the Heavens[edit]

Khenarthi, God of Winds, the Gatherer of Waters, and the Elder Spirit of the Heavens, is the Khajiiti goddess of weather and the sky, the most powerful of the Sky spirits, and is the Khajiiti interpretation of Kynareth. When a Khajiit dies, it is Khenarthi who guides their soul either to Azurah for judgment, or to Llesw'er, the Sands Behind the Stars. And it is her clarion call that will summon the "eternal united spirit of all Khajiit" to defend creation at the end of time.

Kota, the Serpent[edit]

According to the Adzi-Kostleel tribe in Black Marsh, after Atak became everything, a being came from the nothing to counter it. As it emerged and met Atak, it told them that its name was Kota and that it had been growing too, and now it had a mouth and was hungry. Following this, they began to battle and devour each other endlessly until tiring and becoming a singular deity, Atakota.[1]

Kyne, Kiss At the End[edit]

Kyne, or Kaan in the dragon language, is the Nordic goddess of the Storm, widow of Shor, the Blessed Warrior-Wife, and a favored god of warriors. She is one of the Hearth Gods, and is considered the chief deity of the Nordic pantheon. As the goddess of the Storm, she is strongly associated with wind and rain, and is thought to control both forces, even when they bring misery. She is often called the Mother of Men and beasts, as Nords believe the sky exhaled onto the land at the Throat of the World to form them. She is also called the "Kiss at the End", because Nords generally believe that she leads their dead to Sovngarde.

Kynareth, Goddess of Air[edit]

Kynareth is the goddess of the heavens, the winds, the elements, and the unseen spirits of the air. She is a member of the Eight/Nine Divines and Patron of sailors and travelers. Kynareth is often invoked for auspicious stars at birth and for good fortune in daily life. In some legends, she is the first to agree to Lorkhan's divine plan to create the mortal plane, and provides the space in the void for its creation. Furthermore, she is associated with rain, a phenomenon that is said not to have occurred before the removal of Lorkhan's divine spark.
