Painted Troll[edit]

A painted troll

A strange form of troll created by the Brush of Truepaint. They are weak against turpentine, which can be applied to a weapon as poison when fighting them. The first six trolls were created in 3E 433 as guardians by a foolish Bosmer or Altmer thief (reports vary) who tried to steal the brush from its owner, Rythe Lythandas. The trolls turned on their creator and killed him. The fat of Painted Trolls is very useful in alchemy, and by 4E 201 Rythe was apparently creating his own trolls in order to extract the rare ingredient.

A Parrapton

Parraptons are insects typically the size of horses that are used as aerial mounts by House Dres, and are kept in stables resembling tall saltrice silos. Essentially giant wasps, they have multifaceted eyes and other qualities reminiscent of those of the regular variety. Following a strict hierarchy, approval from the queen is needed to ride her children, who is a behemoth twice the size of her kin. Such an audience must not be taken lightly, for she may deny a request for fear for her children's safety. Furthermore, the queen also handpicks which of her children is best fit for the rider.[UOL 1] Riders powder their hands and rub them together to signal to their parrapton, which depending on context, will signal when they are to fly or land. A parrapton is no longer a drone when the queen selects a mate.[UOL 2]

King Narilmor, an ancient Ayleid willingly purified by Meridia

The Purified are beings that have been lustrated for purification by the Daedric Prince Meridia. For mortals, this usually involves being stripped of their free will and bestowed with the gift of immortality for the purpose of serving her for all eternity. The Purified are imbued with a golden radiance within their bodies that causes them to emit a glow from beneath their skin. Beings who join the ranks of the Purified include those who willingly pledge themselves to Meridia's service, as well the unwilling, such as those who defy her. They are also referred to as Lustrants by Molag Bal's Dremora minions, though this is sometimes used as a catch-all term to refer to Meridia's followers.
