Daedra are immortal creatures from the planes of Oblivion. There are many variations, which can be categorized into two subtypes— Atronachs and Humanoids—along with other lesser deadra.
For historical information, see the lore article.
Air Atronachs are powerful air elementals found in Craglorn. They primarily use spinning blade attacks. Following the atronach naming conventions, the air atronachs' typical name might begin with "Parel", although there is only one such air atronach found in ESO.
Flame Atronachs are fiery and malevolent fire elementals. They use area of effect flame attacks, and explode upon death. Cold-Flame Atronachs are found in the employ of Molag Bal.
