Elegian's cataclyst schematics

Cataclysts (a portmanteau of "cataclysm" and "catalyst") are Daedric machines said to be "rituals made manifest".[1] The cataclysts were designed by the moth priest Elegian, who was tortured into creating them by the Order of the Waking Flame and Valkynaz Nokvroz. They can be powered by either Daedric essence or mortal blood. Part of their mechanical setup can include Cataclyst Vessels.
