Daggerfall: Order of Arkay
The Order of Arkay is devoted to the God of Birth and Death. Arkay is the great spirit who brings every man and woman, human, elf, Khajiit, and Argonian into this world, and when the time is true, ends their circle. Arkay is fertility and blight, joy and sorrow. At the Order, they celebrate the Blessed Neutrality that Arkay stands for. While they do not offer strangers blessings, for to give favor or curse would be to upset the eternal balance, the Order offers much to its members. Their libraries and sages are some of the finest in Tamriel. Of course, few are worthy to be initiated into the mysteries of Birth and Death.
