Abnur Tharn (2E 418 - 2E 582)[edit]

Abnur Tharn was the Imperial Grand Chancellor of the Elder Council and overlord of Nibenay during the middle of the Second Era. Much like his ancestors, who were known for holding positions of power throughout Cyrodiil since the days of the Akaviri Potentate, Tharn served as advisor to various emperors and kings for over 117 years. During the turbulent rise and fall of Cyrodiilic rulers during the Interregnum, Tharn was the sole constant, providing continuity and consistency to the Empire of Cyrodiil. Fiercely loyal to the Empire, Tharn became Chancellor of Elder Council in 2E 465 and has served as the Imperial Battlemage of Tamriel ever since. Tharn is also the author of various texts.

Chief-Crier Adara'hai (fl 2E 582)[edit]

Chief-Crier Adara'hai was a leading figure of the Twilight Cantors in the mid-Second Era. She was responsible for several high-profile instances of dro-m'Athra vanquishing around the time of the Planemeld.

Ada'Soom Dir-Kamal (2E ?b - 2E 572)[edit]

Ada'Soom Dir-Kamal, also spelled Ada'Soon Dir-Kamal, was the King of Kamal, a nation of Akavir.

In 2E 572, he led an army of his people in an invasion of Tamriel, reportedly in search of a person or object roughly translated as the "Ordained Receptacle". Dir-Kamal's army landed in Skyrim near the city of Windhelm, which they subsequently besieged and sacked. Wulfharth, the Underking, was summoned to help repel the invasion of the "Akaviri demon" (sources differ on who summoned him). Dir-Kamal decided to bypass Riften and retreat from Skyrim, instead setting his sights on Mournhold. The Nords refused to let him get away and pursued him into Morrowind, where his army was crushed between them, a Dunmer army led by Almalexia, and a third force of Argonian Shellbacks. Remnants of Dir-Kamal's army survived this battle and resurfaced years later in Cyrodiil, where they seized the Imperial Throne from the successors of the Emperor Attrebus.

Aegilief (3E ?b - 3E 393)[edit]

Aegilief was a Nord chieftain of Thirsk during the Imperial Simulacrum in the fourth century of the Third Era. She became Chieftain of Thirsk for eight years after slaying Oddny the Unfaithful and presenting her head as a battle trophy.

Aela the Huntress (fl. 4E 201)[edit]

Aela the Huntress is a Nord member of the Companions. Aela is one of the highest-ranking members and as such, is a member of the secret group, the Circle.

In 4E 201, Aela and her fellow Companions were battling a giant in the outskirts of Whiterun. There, she met the Last Dragonborn who was interested in joining their group, telling them to speak with Kodlak Whitemane at Jorrvaskr for recruitment. After the Dragonborn kept proving their worth through different contracts and venturing with Farkas to retrieve a fragment of Wuuthrad, Aela and the other members of the Circle gathered outside Jorrvaskr to welcome the Dragonborn into their elite organization. Aela was also present when Skjor offered the Dragonborn the opportunity to become a werewolf, giving her own blood for the ritual. As the Dragonborn gained consciousness after their werewolf transformation, Aela informed them that she and Skjor had tracked down the Silver Hand, a group of werewolf hunters, to their hideout. Unfortunately, they found Skjor slain by the Silver Hand and Aela vowed to avenge him. Aela sent the Dragonborn to assassinate a leader of the Silver Hand and search a Silver Hand hideout for information on the location of their headquarters. Kodlak soon caught wind of these operations. After Kodlak was assassinated by the Silver Hand and the werewolf hunters were wiped out in retaliation, Aela ventured with Farkas, Vilkas, and the Dragonborn to Ysgramor's Tomb to cure Kodlak's spirit of his lycanthropy, so that he could make his way to Sovngarde. After they were successful, Aela recognized the Dragonborn as the new Harbinger, succeeding Kodlak as leader.

Aer, the Conjurer Magnificent (fl 1E 2150)[edit]

Aer, the Conjurer Magnificent was a pioneer conjuration mage. She is accredited with the summoning of the first Iron Atronach bear in history.

Little is known of Aer's history. She lived in the late years of the First Era and was a conjurer of some renown, earning her title of the Conjurer Magnificent. In 1E 2150, she performed the first summoning of Iron Atronach Bear.

By the 2E 582, the art of conjuring Iron Atronachs shaped like bears was popularized among the conjuration mages. Aer's notes survived to that time, and, according to them, the lumbering, ursine frame matched the atronach's temperament perfectly, making the calling-ritual far easier than traditional summoning.

King Aeradan Camoran (fl 2E 489 - 582)[edit]

Aeradan Camoran was the Bosmeri king of Valenwood during the mid-Second Era. His reign began after a civil war for sovereignty with his cousin, Gelthior Camoran, but later, he was among the leaders that spearheaded the first-iteration of the Aldmeri Dominion in 2E 582, as well as, part of the original Inner Council of the Thalmor.

Aerin (fl 3E 427)[edit]

Aerin was a Bosmer thief and a master of light armor in the late Third Era. She was a trainer in the use of light armor and was an expert on the various styles. She was also highly proficient at sneaking and acrobatics and was known to offer training in these skills as well.


Aetherion is an experimental Celestial created by the Nedes of Skyreach while they were researching the power of nirncrux. It took the form of an ethereal Daedric Titan, a Daedric perversion of the dragon that was created by Molag Bal. Aetherion was close to immortal, and would simply condense back into a core of Aetherial energy when its corporeal form was destroyed. It was imprisoned within Skyreach Pinnacle in Hammerfell along with the lesser Celestials some time after 1E 808, when Yokudan invaders sealed the Nedic wards.

In 2E 582, the Scaled Court unsealed the ruins in their attempt to understand the Nedes' usage of nirncrux. This freed the dangerous Celestials within, forcing the cultists to retreat. The expedition leader, Mederic Vyger, subsequently left the Court and attempted to set things right. He enlisted the aid of the Vestige and re-entered the ruins to fight back against the Celestials and restore the wards. Aetherion appeared at the very end of the ritual in an attempt to stop Vyger, but the intruders destroyed his core and the wards were successfully restored.

Following the restoration of the ancient wards in the Pinnacle and the defeat of Aetherion, he was imprisoned again in Skyreach.

Queen Afsar (fl. Late First Era)[edit]

Queen Afsar was a powerful Redguard monarch who ruled Alik'r in the Late First Era. She was remembered as one of the people who changed the course of Redguard history.

Agnar the Unwavering (3E ?b - 3E 433)[edit]

Agnar the Unwavering was a Nord chieftain of Thirsk who lived in the fifth century of the Third Era.

He became Chieftain of Thirsk after marrying Svenja Snow-Song.

Sometime in the late Third Era, he and his wife, Svenja Snow-Song traveled all over Tamriel in the hopes of finding the Uderfrykte Matron, the progenitor of the monster that assaulted the mead hall in 3E 427. By roughly 3E 433, they found a lead in the mountains of Skyrim and eventually crossed the border into Cyrodiil to find the Horror of Dive Rock, whom they believed was the matron. They built their camp on the overlook in Dive Rock and eventually discovered the matron. Once they confronted the matron, Svenja was quickly struck down and devoured, forcing Agnar back to the camp. The chieftain made final preparations to attack the beast only to fall the same fate as his wife. The Hero of Kvatch later stumbled upon the camp discovering Agnar's body and journal and slayed the Uderfrykte Matron, avenging the couple.

It is possible that he became the ruler of Thirsk after the Nerevarine's journey to Akavir around 3E 433.

Agnorith (fl 2E 9th Century)[edit]

Brother of the First Emperor of Tamriel, Tiber Septim, and the father of Empress Kintyra.[1]

Ahbiilok (?b - ?d)[edit]

Ahbiilok is a dragon whose name means "Hunter-Blue-Sky" in the Dragon Language.

During the early years of the Dragonguard, at some point after the founding of the organization, in 1E 2703, he was seen throughout the northern parts of the Jerall Mountains. There were numerous recorded attempts to kill him, but not a single one was successful. He was recorded as an active dragon by the chronicler of the Dragonguard, Brother Mathnan, in the Atlas of Dragons, and as of 2E 373, he was believed to be lairing somewhere in Morrowind.

According to Twin Secrets, a renowned enchanter Brarilu Theran found a dragon sheltered in the smoking ruins of Vvardenfell and defeated it in combat. Instead of killing the Dragon, he parlayed with it. He asked the Dragon for its name, but the Dragon refused and instead offered to teach the mer how to defy the Law of Firsts and enchant items with multiple effects.

Ahzidal (fl late Merethic Era)[edit]

Ahzidal (meaning "the Embittered Destroyer" or literally "Bitter Destroyer" in the Dragon Language) was the first great Nord enchanter, and possibly the first human to master the Elven methods of enchanting.

Sapiarch Aicantar of Shimmerene (fl 2E 582)[edit]

Aicantar of Shimmerene was an Altmer author from Shimmerene, and the Sapiarch of Indoctrination active around 2E 582, whose works mainly consisted of propaganda for the first Aldmeri Dominion.

He was responsible for several works of propaganda relating to the Alliance War, namely Crimes of the Daggerfall Covenant, Regarding the Ebonheart Pact, An Unusual Alliance, and Welcome to New Aldmeri Irregulars. He is also the author of several official Thalmor documents, such as a handbill regarding Dominion etiquette and responses to inquiries submitted to the Presidium of Aldmeri Cultural Illumination and Dissemination. Arguably Aicantar's most notable work is Before the Ages of Man, a chronicle of the Dawn and Merethic Eras which survived in popular literature well into the Fourth Era. He also wrote guidelines for the apparel, armor, and equipment of the Aldmeri Dominion. Additionally, he engaged in correspondence explaining various noteworthy topics related to the affairs of the Aldmeri Dominion.

Around 2E 582, Aicantar was the subject of an assassination plot in Shimmerene. The Daedra-worshipping Court of Bedlam recruited Apraxic Mer—outcasts forced to live in the city's sewers—whom they attempted to persuade into murdering Aicantar, hoping to cause discord and turmoil in Shimmerene. The plot was uncovered by a newcomer, however, who killed the Court of Bedlam's agent in Shimmerene, putting an end to their scheme.

Prince Aiden Direnni (fl 1E 480 - 482)[edit]

Prince Aiden Direnni was a member of the Altmer Direnni Clan. An Altmer folk-hero, he appears in myths as the last king of a heroic line.

Often spoken of alongside his cousins Ryain Direnni and Raven Direnni, Aiden won many battles against the Alessian Empire in 1E 480. During this time he reluctantly invoked the Rights Charter, allowing him to conscript his Breton subjects into the war. His crowning achievement was leading Direnni forces to victory against the Alessians in the Battle of Glenumbra Moors in 1E 482, ending their ambitions of conquering High Rock. The Day of Release was celebrated thereafter by the people of Glenumbra to commemorate his victory.

Over three thousand years later, around 2E 582, his broken sword was recovered by the Merethic Society to be displayed in their museum in Greenshade.

According to an ancient Nordic account of the Battle of Red Mountain, he wore the Wraith Mail during the battle, and fought the Ash King Wulfharth. He defeated Wulfharth, but was struck blind during the fight. After the battle, he lived with the Ashlanders, and is credited with spreading the belief among them that the Tribunal murdered Nerevar.

Empress Alessia (?b - 1E 266)[edit]

Alessia, also known as Queen Alessia, Saint Alessia, the Lady of Heaven, Queen-ut-Cyrod, Queen of Mortals, Slave Queen of Cyrodiil, Mother of the Empire, Queen of Stars, and El-Estia, was the first Empress of Cyrodiil and the founder of the Alessian Empire, the first of three Cyrodilic empires. She led the Alessian Slave Rebellion against the Ayleids in the third century of the First Era, freeing the Nedes of Cyrodiil from slavery and founding the Alessian Empire. As the first Empress of Cyrodiil, she established a new religion, a fusion of the Nordic and Aldmeri pantheons known as the Eight Divines. On her deathbed in 1E 266, she was canonized by Akatosh, and her soul placed in the central stone of the Amulet of Kings, thus forging Akatosh's covenant with men to protect Tamriel from the forces of Oblivion. Among worshippers of Pelinal Whitestrake, Alessia is the patron saint of humanity. The Empress is associated with The Thief Constellation.

Alessia is not her birth name, but rather a corruption of a title, Al-Esh ("High Highness"), that was given to her by her followers. Another title bestowed on her was Paravant ("The First"). From corruptions of these two titles come countless other names by which she is known to various peoples, including Perrif, Paraval, Pevesh, Perrethu, Paravania, and Aleshut. The Alessian Order was so-called because she purportedly appeared to the prophet Marukh in a vision and bestowed her teachings upon him, for which she was known by the Order as the "Enlightened One". For more information, see the full article on Alessia.

Countess Alessia Caro (fl 3E 432 - 433)[edit]

Countess Alessia Caro (née Valga) was the wife of Count Marius Caro of Leyawiin. They were wed around 3E 432. She was the daughter of Count Charus Valga and Countess Arriana Valga of Chorrol. Charus died in battle many years prior, but Alessia and her mother visited each other regularly. She and her husband were from prominent Cyrodiilic families, and it was widely speculated they were on their way to the Elder Council. Rumor had it that she was the real power behind the throne, not her husband.

Alisanne Dupre (?b - 4E 188)[edit]

Alisanne Dupre was a member of the Dark Brotherhood who had become the Listener of the Black Hand by the year 4E 187. Her father, Uther Nere, had murdered her mother when she was a young woman, and she fled to join the Brotherhood, vowing to take revenge as an assassin.

Dupre maintained a private residence in Bravil, from which she commuted to the Brotherhood's last Cyrodilic sanctuary in Cheydinhal. While there, she discussed the state of the Brotherhood with Rasha. Among the topics they discussed was the destruction of the Wayrest sanctuary, and the potential re-opening of the Shadowscale training facility in Archon, Black Marsh, a plan that was ultimately abandoned due to lack of funds.

When the feud between Bravil's two largest skooma traffickers turned violent, Dupre was forced to hire a battalion of sellswords to protect her and her property. Ultimately the effort proved futile, as she was tricked by her father, and incinerated by his fiery spell. Dupre was killed while attempting in vain to guard the Night Mother's crypt from desecration. During the fight, an assassin named Garnag managed to escape with the Night Mother's body, saving it from destruction and ruining Uther Nere's plans to destroy the Dark Brotherhood entirely.

She wrote a series of texts which provided an overview of the general patterns and symbology used on the architecture, weapons, and armor of various cultures in Tamriel. During the development of these texts, Alfidia became romantically involved with both Morian Zenas and Divayth Fyr. She was never able to publish these works herself, disappearing soon after Morian's disappearance during his studies of Oblivion. Morian's apprentice Seif-ij Hidja found and compiled Alfidia's notes in her stead.[2]

A quote underscoring the significance of hardships and struggle, and mentioning a matronly crone descending from the mountains to impart these revelations was credited to them.

High King Alldimar the Ghostmaker (fl late 1E or early 2E)[edit]

High King Alldimar the Ghostmaker was a Nord ruler of Skyrim. He became the High King of Solitude through violent means. He had been a seasoned warrior and had engaged in numerous skirmishes against the Reachfolk prior to ascending to the throne. Forty years after the death of Temylda, Alldimar seized the throne toppling an untested child heir to claim his rule. The name of this child was lost to history.

Despite his blood-drenched ascent, he proved to be a wise and effective ruler, bringing peace to the land. However, strange incidents began to occur throughout the city, and servants in the Blue Palace reported hearing strange chanting and seeing their liege talking to someone who wasn't there. Accidents claimed the lives of many people in Solitude, and rumors about Alldimar and his advisor, Freiretta, began to spread. Soon after his death, a secret compartment in his room was discovered containing the skulls of every victim of the past year. The purpose of this collection remained unknown for generations, but the displaced remains were given proper rites by priests.

He formed the Knights of the Nine in 3E 111, with the aim of recovering the Crusader's Relics of Pelinal Whitestrake. The order attracted the most prestigious knights in Tamriel and performed many great deeds, even recovering four of eight relics. However, the political machinations of the War of the Red Diamond tore the order apart. Sir Amiel spent many of his final years living in solitude in the order's former priory.[4] In 3E 153, he made a final quest to recover an ancient relic he had been seeking for decades, but unfortunately did not survive the attempt.[5]

As quartermaster, he designed the uniform for the Hour Knights based off Reman Empire regalia, writing the guide to crafting the armor that would still be used over a century later. A statue to Entius was later erected in Knightsgrave to his memory as one of the Order's founding members.

Anahbi (fl before 2E 582)[edit]

Anahbi was an ancient Khajiiti figure born from the Quin'rawl Peninsula. In legends, she was a skilled jumper who sought to grasp the light of Jone and Jode, the two moons. When she had fallen into Oblivion, the two moons saved her, only to have Jone's light taken by Anahbi as she pounced across Nirn again. When they tried to take it back, the moons became entangled and she finally took Jode's light. As she made her escape, the moons had caught her in their embrace. She promised to never steal from them again if she could return to Quin'rawl. Ever since then, speckles of stardust remained sprinkled on her brow as a reminder of her vow to never return to the stars.

Anaxes is a Xivilai who serves as an agent of the Dremora Kathutet. He bears some relation to another Xivilai named Medrike.

Like Kathutet, Anaxes once served Molag Bal as a torturer and guard. In 2E 582, he and Medrike were sent to Tamriel by Bal to defend a Dark Anchor. However, they were swiftly banished by the Fighters Guild and the Anchor was released. Sometime after this, Anaxes, Medrike, and Kathutet came into the service of Mehrunes Dagon.

Circa 3E 433, Kathutet was ordered by Dagon to serve Mankar Camoran in Gaiar Alata. He was charged with keeping order in the Savage Garden, where the souls of "unmortal" Mythic Dawn members took part in ceaseless combat to prove themselves. Anaxes was appointed Lord of the Savage Garden, and became feared by the cultists as the worst of their tormentors. The cultists eventually succeeded in trapping him in a cave. Although Kathutet regarded the humiliation of his imprisonment as a fitting punishment, Anaxes' shame made a mockery of Kathutet's authority. Seeing the matter as too insignificant for his own attention, Kathutet attempted to bring the Hero of Kvatch into his service in order to free the Xivilai. The outcome of this proposition is unknown, and Gaiar Alata was destroyed shortly afterward.

Ancano (?b - 4E 201)[edit]

Ancano was an Altmer agent of the Thalmor assigned as "advisor" to the Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold. The other members of the College deeply and somewhat openly distrusted him due to his Thalmor allegiance. He vehemently denied that he was a spy, claiming only that the Thalmor wished to promote relations with the College. He was deeply distrustful of the Psijic Order, which he viewed as a rogue organization and enemy of the Thalmor. Unbeknownest to others, he also met with the Augur of Dunlain in secret. When the Eye of Magnus was brought to the College from Saarthal, he turned on them, killing several mages, including Arch-Mage Savos Aren. He sought to gain control over the Eye, and nearly created a devastating catastrophe which would have had enormous ramifications on Winterhold and possibly all of Tamriel. However, he was thwarted and slain, by the Last Dragonborn, before he could do anything truly disastrous, and the Eye was subsequently secured by the Psijic Order.

Andel Crodo (fl 2E 864)[edit]

Andel Crodo was a high-ranking Altmer member of the Thalmor, playing a pivotal role within the Second Aldmeri Dominion. He implemented a non-intervention policy in regions outside the Dominion, a stance that faced opposition from some members within the Thalmor.

In her time, she was the moon-priest and queen of the Ne Quin-al prides that roamed northern Elsweyr. But most importantly, she was the boon companion of the Mythic-Hero, Khunzar-ri and his Kra'Jun, playing a vital role in preventing the Dragons and later the Betrayer's plot to harness the lunar energy of Jode. She is the namesake of the modern-day name of her domain, Anequina.

He married his wife, Lady Llathasa Indarys, around 3E 413, and they had one son, Farwil Indarys. He was the only Dunmer count in Cyrodiil at the close of the Third Era. It's speculated that the Queen Mother of Morrowind, Barenziah, wielded her influence to put him on the throne.

Andel's wife died shortly before the Oblivion Crisis, and rumors circulated that the philandering Count was involved in her fall down some stairs. He was also rumored to have been cooperative with the Dark Brotherhood, who had a secret sanctuary in his city. During the Crisis, he was a staunch supporter of High Chancellor Ocato. The rescue of His Lordship's son from Oblivion by the Hero of Kvatch was widely publicized (and exaggerated).

Circa 4E 48, the Knights of the Thorn were led by Andel's descendant, Ilver Indarys.

Andorak was disinherited after his father's death by vote of the Elder Council, and a cousin more closely related to the original Septim line was proclaimed Cephorus II by the next year, 3E 248. For the first nine years of Cephorus II's reign, those loyal to Andorak battled the Imperial forces. In an act that the sage Eraintine called "Tiber Septim's heart beating no more", the Council granted Andorak the High Rock kingdom of Shornhelm to end the war. Andorak's descendants still rule Shornhelm as of the late Third Era.

Anido J. Jhone, Royal Archaeologist (fl 3E)[edit]

Anido J. Jhone was a royal archaeologist who informally translated the text known as The Epic of the Grey Falcon, based on the crew of a warship from the Summerset Isles. Based on the information, they surmised from the text, the story comes from the Interregnum in the Second Era, sometime after the Knahaten Flu in 2E 560.[11]

Antiochus Septim (sometimes enumerated as Antiochus I) was the seventh emperor of the Septim Dynasty. He was preceded as emperor by his father, Pelagius II, and was succeeded by his daughter, Kintyra II.

Antus Pinder (fl after 2E 582, before 3E 433)[edit]

Antus Pinder was an Imperial warrior of the Colovian West, known for his unwavering defense of the city of Kvatch against a vastly superior threat. Despite suffering a grave defeat, the city honored his bravery and spirit by erecting a statue in his likeness at the main square, just outside the castle gate.

The identity of the superior invading force remains unclear. However, it is known that the statue was erected sometime between the mid-Second Era, around 2E 582, and the Oblivion Crisis of the late Third Era.

King Anumaril (fl early 1E)[edit]

King Anumaril was an Ayleid arch-mage and king of Abagarlas, a city of Molag Bal worshippers in a deadly feud with the Meridia-worshipping people of Delodiil. During the course of the war, Anumaril began preparations for a necromantic ritual, the Mortuum Vivicus, which would drain all life from Delodiil. This prompted a daring raid by the Meridians, who were able to infiltrate Abagarlas, kill Anumaril's entire family, and destroy the city entirely. Anumaril also supposedly ruled from the Temple of the Ancestors at some point.

At some point, Anumaril created the Staff of Towers, a powerful artifact whose eight segments corresponded to one of the metaphysical Towers that shape the fabric of Nirn. Around the time of the Alessian Slave Rebellion, Anumaril gifted Filestis the Remnant of Light and told him to take it to "the cold sunset limit", where he was followed by Ayleid immigrants. Following this, he fled to Valenwood. Hailed as one of the greatest architects of the First Era, he was responsible for several constructions in the province, such as the Great Seal of Belarata and the archives in the Reliquary of Stars.

One of his more notable creations was the Orrery at Elden Root. On his travels to the great tree, he found the Stone of the Green-Sap Tower, the Perchance Acorn, and tried to recreate the Tower of White-Gold. His attempt failed, due to a fundamental incompatibility between Ayleid and Bosmer magic and belief.

King Aphren Gardner (fl early-mid 1E)[edit]

Aphren Gardner was the merchant-king of Wayrest sometime in the early-mid First Era. In his time, Aphren was a ruthless monarch that conquered his neighbors. In the midst of his conquests, he laid claim over the fortress, Wind Keep and the nearby settlement of the same name, while the township kept the original name, the stronghold was named Aphren's Hold.

High King Ar-Azal (fl mid 2E)[edit]

High King Ar-Azal was the ruler of Hammerfell in the early-Second Era, being the last to rule king when the province was incorporated in the Second Empire. Ar-Azal was a Crown of the Phyllocid Dynasty and considered the most noble of all the Reman era High Kings. Upon ascension to the throne he brought peace between the rival parties, the Crowns and Forebears, by taking the Forebear wife Fereshtah and Crown wife Arlimahera, later called the "Blood Queen." His descendants would rule Hammerfell for generations to come.

Arabelle Davaux of House Davaux was a captain of Lion Guard and a member of High Rock's intelligence branch Ring of Daggers. She was also a member of a humanitarian organization Society of the Steadfast and worked to ensure peace talks between representatives of the three alliances during Three Banners War. According to some chroniclers she was the author of Investigator Vale detective novels or an inspiration for the main heroine of the books that were believed to be "true-to-life" re-imaginings of actual historical events. Arabelle officially denied any connection with Investigator Vale novels, though she did in fact author them.

Saint Aralor the Penitent (fl before 3E 427)[edit]

Saint Aralor the Penitent is the Dunmeri patron saint of Tanners and Miners. A condemned criminal, Aralor repented his sins and made a circuit of the great pilgrimages on his knees. For the Tribunal Temple, he serves as an example that it is possible for anyone to truly repent and start anew. Aralor was later canonized by the Tribunal, and shrines to him could be found in Tribunal temples. His famed hair shirt is now a prized relic of the Tribunal Temple.

Aramril (fl 2E 582)[edit]

Great Aramril was a Bosmer arcanist, a renowned duelist, and conjurer and the most prestigious spellcaster of the Valenwood, who achieved lasting fame throughout the ages. She was also known as an author of The Apprentice's Assistant.

Arana (fl 2E 582)[edit]

Arana of the Ghostsong Clan was a Witch who held the position of the Matron of her people in the Second Era at some point before 2E 582. She was a proponent of the new, more peaceful and moderate traditions for the clan but as the darker days for the Reach in the Second Era approached, Arana's younger sister Nathari promised Namira's blessing to the Ghostsong if they followed the old ways. Soon afterward she left the clan. Whether her self-exile was voluntary or due to the banishment is unclear. After leaving her clan behind, she quickly gathered a following of Reachfolk among numerous clans opposed to Ard Caddach's rule and the presence of the Gray Host in the Reach. They were known as the Witch-rebels and later, after the rebellion was over, as Wayward Guardians. Ultimately the conflict between Markarth and the rebels died out as both groups needed to work together against a common foe. After the Gray Host threat in the Reach was ended, she took the position of the Keep-Witch and adviser of the Ard in the Court of Markarth. In that role, she continued to lead the Wayward Guardians whose purpose changed to serve the people of the Reach in need.

Aranias (fl 2E 582)[edit]

Aranias was an Altmer girl from the mid-Second Era who was born with the power to control the earth. She became the Wilderqueen of Greenshade in 2E 582. Aranias grew up on the island of Silatar, and used powerful magic to create a fantastical and beautiful paradise on the island. However, Silatar's beauty felt wrong and unnatural to behold, and Aranias' parents were disapproving of her magic. Aranias went on to be known as the Rock Witch of Silatar, and after she accidentally destroyed a passing ship with her powers, her parents departed the island circa 2E 582 to seek a trainer.

While her parents were away, Bosmer bandits attacked Silatar and burned the farms, and Aranias was forced to drive them off alone. Her parents returned with High Kinlady Estre and the Veiled Heritance, who promised to help. However, Estre sought only to use Aranias as a weapon, and forced her to rip an innocent Bosmer to pieces as a demonstration of her loyalty. She then departed the island to join the Heritance.

For a time, Aranias aided the Heritance on Auridon. She was responsible for the group's infiltration of the College of Aldmeri Propriety, and established their base at the ruins of Quendeluun. After Estre failed to usurp Queen Ayrenn and was killed later that year, the Veiled Heritance sent Aranias to Greenshade with her "trainer", an Altmer named Andur. The Heritance hoped to use her power to kill the Wilderking, a god-king with similar powers who ruled over parts of Greenshade. The Vinedusk Rangers attempted to hunt her down on Auridon along with several other Heritance members, only to discover that she had already departed for the mainland.

Seeking to gain the Wilderking's allegiance, the Aldmeri Dominion sent the Vestige to prevent the Heritance's assassination attempt. A Bosmer Spinner named Maruin told the tale of Silatar's creation, but in doing so he altered the story—and therefore Aranias' memory, so that she would recognize the Vestige as a childhood friend who lived with her on the island. In Mariun's telling, Aranias did not face the bandits alone and refused to kill the Bosmer woman, instead killing Andur and trapping the Heritance representatives. Although these events never transpired, the Spinner's magic showed Aranias that the Heritance was her true enemy, and she was able to fulfill her destiny by becoming the next Wilderqueen.

After this mantling, Aranias' identity and memories were consumed by the Wilderqueen. Her final autonomous act was to reveal key details about the Heritance's plot to use the stolen Staff of Magnus. However, the new Wilderqueen remained influenced by the Spinner's tale, and swore allegiance to the Dominion. She saved the vampire hunter Mel Adrys from undeath circa 2E 582 in memory of the Vestige.

Lady Arannelya (fl 4E 171 - 175)[edit]

Lady Arannelya was a Thalmor general during the Great War. She led the Aldmeri Dominion's invasion of Hammerfell while her counterpart, Lord Naarifin, kept the Imperial legions occupied in Cyrodiil. Her main force crossed western Cyrodiil, bypassing Anvil and Kvatch, and rendezvoused with smaller Dominion forces that landed on Hammerfell's southern coast, quickly overrunning the Redguard defenses. Over the next two years, Arannelya unsuccessfully besieged Hegathe and briefly captured Skaven before being driven back across the Alik'r Desert by an army of Imperial veterans and Redguards. Although the campaign in Cyrodiil ended in 4E 175, the conflict continued in Hammerfell for another five years, during which time Lady Arannelya presumably continued to command the Dominion army.

Emperor Ardanan Haba (fl before 1E 660)[edit]

Ardanan Haba was an Emperor of the Yokudan Empire. Little is known of his reign and life, except that he held dominion over Yokuda several centuries before 1E 660. Certain scholars suggest that under his rule, different dissident factions left the empire and established themselves on the eastern islands. However, alternative accounts trace this migration to later Yokudan leaders, specifically during the times of Mansel Sesnit's diplomatic purges and Randic Torn's controversial policies. A subset of scholars goes so far as to speculate that these exiled groups might have been Sinistral Mer.

Arden-Sul (fl before 3E 433)[edit]

Arden-Sul, known by various titles such as the Prophet, Artificer Superior, Dark Deceiver, He Who Gave His Heart's Blood, and He Who Reads the Winds in Our Entrails was a powerful prophet and ruler from an earlier time in the Shivering Isles. The events of his life and death are widely disputed by the people of the Isles, particularly in regards to the Sacellum. As with everything else in the Isles, the division in viewpoints lies between Mania and Dementia. The only thing the ruling powers seem to agree on is that he was a prophet who preached in the building that shares his name, the Sacellum Arden-Sul, and that he had 213 followers. The Manic and Demented versions of his death have even become part of the ritual of accession for each respective duchy. More detailed accounts of his death can be found in the book The Prophet Arden-Sul. Not much else is known about Arden-Sul. Some say he was a hero, some say he is some sort of god. The beliefs of the maniacs and the demented contradict each other almost completely. He bore the Raiment of Arden-Sul which became a cherished relic.

For more information, see the lore article.

Arkan, also known as Arkan the Gifted, was a scribe from Daggerfall, active in the very-early Second Era. His most well-known work was transcribing the text depicting legends of Baan Dar, the Bandit God of the South. His work was published in 2E 24 and he came to believe in the god, as some sort of force that plays a part in the world. The first scroll was part of a collection found by a nomad in the caves of Lake Vread, in Elsweyr, and Arkan transcribed them as well. What became of the second scroll is unknown, however, the third scroll was among the rarest books across Tamriel, portraying the tale of Baan Dar's theft of the Thirty-Seventh Sermon of Vivec before he could write it. A copy was kept in the Library of Dusk, found in Coldharbour.

Arlimahera, Blood Queen of Hegathe (fl 2E 412)[edit]

Arniel Gane (fl 4E 201)[edit]

Arniel Gane was a Breton researcher and Alteration mage at the College of Winterhold in the Fourth Era. Arniel studied the ruins of Saarthal, and had a particular interest in Dwemer artifacts. He was both passionate about his work and paranoid that it would be stolen or compromised.

He endeavored to discover the secret behind one of the greatest mysteries of Tamriel: the disappearance of the Dwemer. In 4E 201, his work came to a head when he finally succeeded in having the dagger Keening brought to the College from Morrowind. He used Kagrenac's tool in an experiment he had devised to try to recreate the event that caused the Dwemer's disappearance. Sadly, he did not have the Heart of Lorkhan, and unfortunately, Arniel's recreation proved to be too accurate, and he has not been seen since.

Arngeir (fl 4E 161 - 201)[edit]

Arngeir is a powerful Greybeard who lived in and around 4E 201. At the time, Arngeir was the only human of the order with the control over his thu'um necessary to speak without fear of wreaking havoc. Therefore, he acted as the Greybeards' representative during this period. He was the right hand of Paarthurnax, the Grandmaster of the order. Arngeir tutored the Last Dragonborn in the Way of the Voice and helped bring about the final defeat of Alduin.

Circa 4E 161, Ulfric Stormcloak had the great honor of being chosen by the Greybeards when he was "just a lad", and spent almost ten years training at High Hrothgar to become a Greybeard, learning the Way of the Voice with Arngeir. He left when the Great War came, and still believed in Arngeir's lectures to some extent in that the Thu'um shouldn't be used lightly. Ulfric doubted Arngeir had forgiven him for leaving, and for the blasphemy of using the Thu'um for anything other than the worship of Kyne.

Arox (fl. 2E 582)[edit]

Lord Arox is an Ash Titan lieutenant once in service to Mehrunes Dagon. During his tenure, he earned many titles, including the Mutilator, the Terror of the Deadlands, the Sunderer of the Seven Skies, the Ruin of Varondo and the Warrior of the Floating Wastes.

Prince Arthago (?b - 3E 400)[edit]

Arthago[nb 1] was a Redguard noble from the late Third Era. As the first child of King Camaron and Queen Akorithi, he was the Prince of Sentinel but ever since his birth, he was afflicted with a myriad of illnesses and bad health, and received little affection from his parents. Early in 3E 400, he disappeared from the public eye and faded away in obscurity. The citizens of the kingdom would refer to him as the "Scholar Prince".

Arthosiis (Merethic Era - 2E 582)[edit]

Arthosiis was an ancient Dragon Priest of Skyrim who lived around the time of the Dragon War. He was exiled from his home, so he, his devoted followers and the Dragon they served left Skyrim in an exodus to Wrothgar, possibly as a result of losing the war after Alduin's banishment. In Wrothgar the exiles built a grand temple for the dragon before Arthosiis killed himself and his followers sealed themselves in the barrow, which later became known as Exile's Barrow.

Due to the Orcs' strict rule about not disturbing the resting places of the dead, the barrow remained untouched until 2E 582 when Narsis Dren delved into the halls in search of a Dragon priest mask. During his search for the mask through the numerous crypts and stone coffins, he accidentally awoke Arthosiis and his draugr guardians, after which he fled to a nearby Orcish village. He returned with the Vestige, who sought to discover why the Draugr had awoken. Within the barrow four bas-reliefs were found that told the tale of the ancient priest. Eventually, the Vestige encountered and defeated Arthosiis, while Narsis Dren stole the priest's mask for himself.

Artorius Ponticus (?b - 2E 582)[edit]

Primate Artorius Ponticus, formerly known as Artorius Ancrus, served as the leader of the Akatosh Chantry in Kvatch during the mid-Second Era. Based in the Great Cathedral of Akatosh, he was a very powerful and influential figure in the years leading up to the Planemeld in 2E 582. A deeply spiritual man, Primate Artorius has spent almost his whole life in service to Akatosh, and was considered the religious authority of Cyrodiil. As Primate, Artorius oversaw all aspects of Akatosh worship in the Cathedral. He was supported equally by Grand Chanter Surus and Grand Sermonizer Fithia, as well as the warrior-priests of the Order of the Hour.

Despite his religious station, Artorious was also secretly embroiled in political subterfuge and sought to shape the political landscape of the Gold Coast. With his vast network of spies and informants hidden throughout the Gold Coast, many heralded him as a stabilizing force in the region for most of his reign. In his later years, he was caught in a feud with the Dark Brotherhood and also a three-way power struggle for control of the Gold Coast.

Arum-Khal (?b - 2E 582)[edit]

The Dark Adept, Arum-Khal, was a Khajiit lich who fell into Namiira's grasp in ages long past. Originally an adept with the Order of the Hidden Moon, he got his start redeeming dro-m'Athra in Azurah's name. He was curious, always asking questions. He was also described as impatient. These qualities in part lead to his downfall. He was a powerful member of the Order, and very proud of that fact. He was considered as a candidate to wield the Moonlight Blade, a relic given as a gift to the Order by Azurah.

Aryon (fl. 3E 427)[edit]

Aryon was a Telvanni Councilor who lived in his mushroom tower of Tel Vos in Vvardenfell, and is a former student of Divayth Fyr. Aryon was one of the only Telvanni Councilors that seemed to be able to look beyond his own interests and instead prioritize the concerns of other people; the rest wanted little more than to be left alone to their research and ambitions. The other members were similarly isolationist in outlook and did not intend to be presided over by any of the other institutions, predominantly the Mages Guild.

Queen Arzhela (fl. 2E 582)[edit]

Queen Arzhela was a Breton queen and ruler of Evermore in the mid-Second Era. She was a cousin of High King Emeric. She was married to Eamond, of house House Guimard. They ascended to the throne upon Eamond's father's death in 2E 568. The couple had two children, Elara and Adrien. In 2E 582, after Eamond died in battle, both Adrien and Elara were believed to have died as well, leaving Arzhela in mourning and the rightful ruler of Evermore.

Eamond's brother Duke Renchant was appointed regent after Queen Arzhela stepped down to allow him to lead the city's defense against the Reachman invasion. During this time, while Eamond was remembered fondly, the rest of the royal family were slandered in what was likely Imperial propaganda. However, the Duke was removed from power after his plot to surrender the city to the Imperial forces was revealed, whereupon Arzhela assumed the responsibilities of leadership. Arzhela prevented Evermore from falling to either the Reachmen or the Empire.

Harbinger Askar (?b - 4E 181)[edit]

Asterie Bedel (fl Late Merethic Era)[edit]

Asterie Bedel was an accomplished Breton blacksmith of the Late Merethic Era. She possessed a great talent that drew from both the techniques of men and mer in crafting her exceptional wares. Her unmistakable signature, a mage's knot, is engraved within the heart of the blade, reflecting the earliest traditions of Bretonic culture. Among her remarkable creations is the mighty Chrysamere, a legendary two-handed adamantium claymore, and a potent artifact with offensive capabilities only surpassed by its defenses. The historical account makes Asterie Bedel one of the earliest known Bretons in history.

Asterie Bedel's name endured through the ages and was recorded in the Infinite Archive. While it remains uncertain if there is any familial connection, a Breton smith named Huet Bedel resided in Shornhelm during the turbulent times of the Interregnum.

Astrid (fl. 4E 201)[edit]

Astrid was a Nord assassin, and the leader of the last remaining Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary in Tamriel, based in Skyrim. She was also the wife of fellow assassin and former Companion, Arnbjorn. In 4E 201, after the Last Dragonborn murdered Grelod the Kind on behalf of Aventus Aretino who thought the Dragonborn was a member of the Dark Brotherhood, Astrid kidnapped the Dragonborn in their sleep, and took them to an abandoned shack in Hjaalmarch, east of Solitude. There, she ordered them to kill one of the three captives who were marked for death by the Brotherhood, without telling them who the real target was.

Conflicting reports debate what happened after this encounter. Some reports claim that the Dragonborn killed Astrid and then destroyed the Dark Brotherhood. However, other reports claim that after slaying one or more of the captives, Astrid welcomed the Dragonborn into the Dark Brotherhood.

King Athyn Llethan (?b - 3E 427)[edit]

King Hlaalu Athyn Llethan was the figurehead Dunmer ruler of Mournhold known as the "Grace of All Gods, King of Morrowind, Duke of Mournhold; Defender of the People and the Law; Loyal Servant of the Emperor and Empire", etc. He was the uncle and successor to Queen Barenziah after the Arnesian War in 3E 396, and he was himself succeeded by his great-nephew Hlaalu Helseth. His chosen heir had been his beloved nephew, Talen Vandas, although he died, apparently in a hunting accident, shortly before Athyn himself. Shortly before his death, he was dealing with complaints about high tariffs on liquor. It was rumored Helseth poisoned him, and was also involved in Talen's death. King Llethan was survived by his wife, Ravani Llethan.

Athyn Muendil (?b - ?d)[edit]

Athyn Muendil was a Dunmer thief that lived in Ald'ruhn. He wrote the book, The Cake and the Diamond about his encounter with the High Rock alchemist, Abelle Chriditte, who successfully tricked him and his friends, Oediad and Nimloth for their diamond.[14]

Councilor Athyn Sarethi (fl 3E 427)[edit]

Athyn Sarethi was a Dunmer noble from the late Third Era. By the fifth century, he was a member of the Great House Redoran's council and governed the South Gash of Vvardenfell. Athyn is a warrior and has been referred as the Hope of the Redoran after an omen.

Prince A'tor (~2E 828 - 2E 864)[edit]

Prince A'tor was the son of High King Thassad II of Hammerfell. After his father's death in 2E 862, the Forebear faction, led by Baron Volag, took control of Sentinel, the capital of Hammerfell. Prince A'tor rallied his Crown supporters at his principality of Stros M'Kai and launched a bloody attempt to recapture the city by sea. However, he was taken by surprise by Tiber Septim's assistance of the Forebears, and was eventually defeated by their combined forces at the Battle of Hunding Bay, near Stros M'Kai.

Mortally wounded, the Archmage Voa placed his soul within a soul gem, disguised as an amulet in the shape of a dragon. Following an attempt to resurrect him, his soul was later fused with his longsword to create the Soul Sword, which was instrumental in liberating the island of Stros M'Kai from the clutches of Lord-Admiral Richton. From the Soul Sword, he advised his lover, now Queen-Regent Iszara, in rulership. He was believed to be an aspect of the HoonDing, along with Cyrus.


Atrozu was the Totem Spirit of the Kalmur Clan. He was an embodiment of the clan as a whole. Memories, hopes and dreams, and even souls of every clan member all came together to form Atrozu. The clan totem took on the shape of a ghostly baby bear. It was formed from the shared kinship and familial love of the clan members. The strength of unity and family is what manifests and makes the existence of Atrozu possible. This rare practice among the Orcs didn't go unnoticed as the concept drew the attention of the hungry Ravener, a Dremnaken in the service of Mehrunes Dagon, who plotted to steal and feast on this familial bond and take possession of Atrozu for himself in order to learn and understand the concept of mortal family.

Unlike how it is the case among traditional Orcish clans where the wise woman is the mother of the Chieftain, the Kalmur tie this role with Atrozu. Instead, Atrozu is responsible for choosing each wise woman for the clan. Part of the training for the position of the wise woman involved learning how to speak with and summoning Atrozu.

Attrebus (2E 841 - 2E 864)[edit]

Attrebus was an Imperial soldier who served under Tiber Septim. Fiercely loyal to his Emperor, he had little patience with people who refused to acknowledge the obvious benefits of the Empire, and often advocated for harsher treatment of subversive elements. The sixth son of a peasant family from the backwoods of Colovia, he ran away from home at sixteen to join the Third Legion mustering in nearby Anvil. The Third was immediately posted to the Imperial City to help put down the Moth Rebellion. The proudest moment of his life was when the Third marched with Tiber Septim's honor guard during his triumphant re-entry into the capital.

Attrebus saw action in every corner of the expanding Empire over the next few years. He was wounded during the storming of Tarak Shan, and nearly lost a leg to an Argonian feather-serpent during the grueling pursuit of Reekee's kidnappers into the depths of Black Marsh in 2E 861. In the sack of Senchal (which is not a part of the official history of the Empire), after the Khajiit had refused to surrender to General Pottreid, Attrebus participated in the wholesale slaughter which followed. They showed no distinction between man, woman, and cubling. He would later claim to have killed thirty of the "catmen" himself. He was among the few who escaped the trap at Black Rocks set by the Aldmeri Dominion. He and the other survivors went on to make up the core of the new Ruby Legion, and Attrebus spent an uneventful year on garrison duty in the Nibenay Valley. His company was then posted to Hammerfell as the personal guard of Lord Amiel Richton, the Provisional Governor of Stros M'Kai. By the age of twenty-three, he was already a grizzled veteran. However, he was still no match for Cyrus the Redguard, who defeated Attrebus during the Stros M'Kai Uprising in 2E 864.

Attrebus (warlord) (fl mid 2E)[edit]

The warlord Attrebus is described as one of the many pretender kings of the Interregnum.[15] Attrebus acceded to the Ruby Throne sometime between 2E 430 and 2E 533, and during his brief reign, he expelled the Akaviri from Cyrodiil to rid the province of foreign influence.[15][16] The Akaviri refugees went on to settle in the Rim Territories of Elsweyr, where they founded the town of Hakoshae.[15][17][18]

Prince Attrebus Mede (4E 26 - ?d)[edit]

Prince Attrebus Mede was a Colovian Crown Prince of the Third Empire under the Mede Dynasty.[nb 1]

He was the son and heir of Emperor Titus Mede I and one of several heroes involved in the banishment of Umbriel in 4E 48. Bards used to make songs about his triumphs, and how he managed to win battles against all odds without taking casualties, never losing more than three of his personal guard in one battle anywhere, including the Battle of Blinker Creek.

He was known to have blond hair, green eyes, and a slight bend in his nose.

Lord Auberon Flyte (fl 3E 403)[edit]

Lord Auberon Flyte and his wife Doryanna were the rulers of Anticlere, a region in the Iliac Bay, formerly known as Reich Gradkeep. They were the leaders of Anticlere's knightly order, the Knights of the Flame.

They became regents of Reich Gradkeep following the slaughter of the previous ruler, Lord Graddock, and most of his family during the War of Betony. Of the previous ruling family, only one sickly infant survived. Lord and Lady Flyte ruled in regency until the infant's death. Lord Flyte's strong, almost dictatorial style was just what Reich Gradkeep needed to restore order after the bloodbath caused by the Treaty of Reich Gradkeep. After the infant's death, Lord Flyte and his wife were elevated from regents to rulers by their subjects. They also agreed to rename the region in his honor; thus, Reich Gradkeep became Anticlere, named after Lord Flyte's ancestral home.

Aubk-i (3E 386 - ?d)[edit]

Augur of Dunlain (?b - ?d)[edit]

The Augur was once a Breton mage from Dunlain in High Rock and a well-respected, brilliant student of the College of Winterhold. He delved into magic in a way no one had seen before, and showed a particular talent for the School of Restoration. However, during an ambitious, unapproved magical experiment in the Midden, he lost his corporeal form and wound up fused to the magical energies that flow through the College. He thereafter appeared instead as a large sphere of blue-white light, described as an incorporeal "maelstrom of writhing oddness and flame". He has sequestered himself in the Midden, the catacombs beneath the College, ever since, but keeps tabs on everything going on in the College. He possesses a unique wisdom which the College has relied on in times of need.

In 4E 201, he guided the College through the potentially disastrous crisis they faced following their excavation of Saarthal and the discovery of the Eye of Magnus.

Sybil Augustine Viliane (fl. 2E 582)[edit]

Lady Augustine Viliane was a Breton Sibyl of Wayrest's chapter of the House of Dibella. Aside from her role as a high-ranking member of the clergy, she also authored books and letters addressing topics of faith, including Dibella's Mysteries and Revelations.

Avalian (fl before 2E 582)[edit]

Avalian was a hero held in high regard by the Orc branch of the Cult of Trinimac, according to which he was a blessed child of Trinimac. He features in the Orsimer religious scripture The Book of the Warrior God and has a passage titled Avalian's Flight devoted to him and his deeds. In this passage, he is described as charging the volcanic mountain and fighting the fiery god of lava and stone during its eruption, and driving his blade into the heart of the beast. His deeds influenced the metalworking of the Trinimac Cult faithful. They notch the blades of their axes to evoke Avalian's axe, which was damaged when it cracked the heart of the fire mountain, and emboss them with Vaia's Golden Ash, the symbol of strength and unity of the Orcs.


The Avenger is an entity who has been evoked by the likes of the Chimer King Moraelyn.[19] Nothing is known of them beyond their mere existence other than the fact that the context in which they were evoked was one of anger.[19]

Vateshran Aydolan (fl before 1E 2502)[edit]

Vateshran Aydolan of the Spiritblood Clan, the Spiritblood Champion was a Reachman storyteller and historian who followed the Carinar the Sharp after the Quicktalon Clan was divided by the patricide. He was the creator, and one of the first champions of the Vateshran's Rites performed in the ancient caves of the Vateshran Hollows, which later served as the clan's coming of age trials, as well as the trials for the chieftains. Following his death he remained on the Nirn as ancestral spirit to oversee the trials and guide the generations of Spritblood.

Queen Ayrenn of Alinor

Queen Ayrenn of Alinor (2E 555 - ?d)[edit]

Queen Ayrenn Arana Aldmeri of Alinor was a leader of the Aldmeri Dominion in the Second Era. She was born on the 5th of Second Seed in 2E 555 to her father King Hidellith and her mother Kinlady Tuinden, and all of the Summerset Isle reportedly celebrated for fifty-five days. She was nimble and quick-witted in her youth, and would often disappear for days at a time. In 2E 573, amid many signs and portents, she disappeared, and her brother Naemon was eventually named heir to the throne. There are many myths about how Ayrenn spent the intervening years, but when her father died in 2E 580, she surfaced in Velyn Harbor to the surprise of all and returned to formally claim her birthright, becoming Queen on the 7th of Frostfall (hence her nickname, the "Unforeseen Queen").

Azandar al-Cybiades (fl 2E 582)[edit]

Azandar al-Cybiades was a renowned Redguard arcanist, known for his exceptional expertise in the realm of magical theory and practice. His unique approach to harnessing the power of magic set him apart as a brilliant theoretician in the field.

Azra Nightwielder (?b - ?d)[edit]

Azra Nightwielder was the original Shadowmage, and a pioneer of Shadow Magic. He was the first to discover that shadows were not merely an absence of light, but the reflection of possible worlds created by forces in conflict.

References to Azra are unreliable, as even texts in the Psijic Order's archives on Artaeum have been tampered with Shadow Magic. However, according to them, Azra was born somewhere in the early Second Era in the Western Reach, which lies between Craglorn, Bangkorai, and the Reach. Despite the Order's tampered estimate of this date of birth, shadow mages have been seen dating back to the First Era.
