Namira, the Lady of Decay, is a Daedric Prince whose sphere is the ancient Darkness. She is known as the Spirit Daedra, ruler of sundry dark and shadowy spirits, and is often associated with spiders, insects, slugs, and other repulsive creatures which inspire mortals with an instinctive revulsion. Namira also appears to be associated with beggars and the beggaring gifts of disease, pity, and disregard. Namira and her shadowy endeavors are often recognized to bear some association with eternity.

Namira's followers and the priests of Arkay are often at odds, and she also counts Ebonarm among her enemies. Her summoning day is Marukh's Day, the 9th of Second Seed.

Lord Indoril Nerevar, also called Saint Nerevar Moon-and-Star, the Champion of Azura, the Hero of Red Mountain, and Godkiller, was the Chimeri king of Resdayn (modern-day Morrowind). As the Hortator, or Great Ashkhan, of the united Chimer people, he forged an alliance with the Dwemer, and he was one of the founders of the First Council, uniting all the people of Resdayn for the first time in 1E 416. Nerevar then took on the title of "First Councilor". The alliance eventually broke down, leading to the War of the First Council. At the climactic Battle of Red Mountain circa 1E 700, Nerevar led the Chimer to victory, though he died shortly after the battle under disputed circumstances.

Under the Tribunal Temple, he was known as the Herald of the Triune Way. Ashlander prophecies of his "rebirth" as the Nerevarine and heroic return to Morrowind fueled the creation of the Nerevarine Cult. St. Nerevar the Captain, patron of Warriors and Statesmen, became one of the foremost saints of the Dunmeri faith, along with his wife, Almalexia the Warden, Lord Sotha Sil the Magus, Lord Vivec the Poet, and Saint Veloth the Pilgrim. Nerevar became the patron saint of House Redoran.

Nine Divines[edit]

The nine great faiths and gods of Tamriel. They are the Aedra: Akatosh, Arkay, Dibella, Julianos, Kynareth, Mara, Stendarr, Zenithar, and the once mortal god Talos (some stories maintain that Arkay was also once a mortal).[1][2] Before the apotheosis of Tiber Septim as Talos in the Third Era, it was the Eight Divines, and the Empire would officially return to the worship of only the Eight Divines pursuant to the White-Gold Concordat at the end of the Great War in the Fourth Era.[3]


Nocturnal, who is also known as the Night Mistress and Noctra to the Khajiit—among other titles[nb 1]—is a Daedric Prince, or "Daedric Princess", whose sphere is the night and darkness. She is associated with, and often depicted alongside, jet-black ravens and crows, which are said to have the power of speech.
