These are scantily-clad, feminine Daedra that may sprout green membranous wings. They are about equivalent in power to the Dremora, and are, like them, divided into many castes.

Daedric Titan[edit]

A Daedric Titan

Daedric Titans, commonly referred to simply as Titans, are giant winged Daedra that serve Molag Bal as war-slaves. They were first created in imitation of the dragons of Nirn when Bal's interrogation of Boziikkodstrun proved fruitless. After modifying Boziikkodstrun's skeleton and substituting his soul for a Daedric vestige, Bal transformed him into the first Titan. Daedric Titans are anatomically similar to dragons, although with dark black skin and prehensile frontal limbs. They have the ability to speak a spell of flaming essence-drain that can debilitate an opponent with a single word, similar to the power of the thu'um. They are notoriously difficult to kill.

According to some sources, Titans were released upon Tamriel for the first time[nb 1] during the attempted Planemeld of the Second Era. Specifically, Molag Bal released them into the skies over the Imperial City when a portal to Coldharbour was opened above the White-Gold Tower in 2E 582. Daedric Titans quickly came to serve other Daedric Princes such as Boethiah, who forced them to fight for her amusement. Mehrunes Dagon imbued a Titan with some sort of flame magic, creating an even stronger variant known as the Ash Titan. In an attempt to create a kind of immortality, Sotha Sil bound the soul of St. Olms and created the Clockwork Titan to harness its power, allowing Olms to inhabit the body of this mechanical variant.

Found in:


A daedroth

Daedroths are crocodile-headed bipedal Daedra, associated with Molag Bal and Mehrunes Dagon. They are a strong, animalistic type of Daedra, but still a dangerous foe with powerful clawed arms and moderate magical ability. Though some have been known to use weapons and wear simple armor, most attack with bare claws. Some are man-sized and spit poison or shock magic, while others tend to be larger and belch firebolts instead. These larger Daedroths initiate battle by shaking themselves, invoking a protective shield.

Linguists will point out that "Daedroth" is also the proper singular form of "Daedra", but for these creatures the common usage is Daedroth (singular) and Daedroths (plural), with Daedra (both singular and plural) being used as the generic term. The more proper, specific name for them is "Daedralings". The term "Lesser Daedra" is sometimes used (again, both singular and plural), though this appellation technically refers to Daedra of all types beneath the Daedric Princes.

A dark seducer

Although this type of Daedra is intelligent, many of them normally refuse communication with anyone from Mundus. Dark Seducers are both powerful spell casters and melee fighters. They are related to the Daedra Seducers, 'dark' likely signifying a variation in form or a specification of rank. Those in service to Sheogorath call themselves the "Mazken", and are usually friendlier to mortals.

Doom Wolves are a breed of giant wolf. They have black fur and glowing red eyes, and their howl is unnaturally distorted. Doom Wolves are used as mounts and were bred for size, savagery, and stealth from the fierce timber wolves of the southern Jerall Mountains. They were adopted by the Dark Brotherhood for use as stealthy mounts, with the breed's glowing red eyes weighing heavily in the decision.

Found in:


A dragon

The Dragons (dov or dovah in their native language, drah-gkon and dov-rha to the ancient Nords, or Aka in Ehlnofex) are a rarely-seen race of large reptilian beasts. They are rumored to be from Akavir (which literally means "Dragon Land"), though there are ancient tales of dragons also coming from Atmora. They are large, scaled creatures, easily several times larger than a human or elf. They have long, slender extremities, with thin bat-like wings and ridges of spikes along their back. Dragons have three sharp talons and one vestigial digit known as a dewclaw on each of their legs, as evidenced by their alphabet.

Dragons are well-known for their affinity for magic which, among other things, grants them the abilities to speak and fly despite their lack of lips or aerodynamic frame. There are several varieties of dragon that come in a range of colors. Blessed with remarkable intelligence, they are nonetheless susceptible to feelings of pride and melancholy. They are distrustful creatures, even of each other. Despite this, they are also somewhat social, and can be driven mad by captivity and isolation. As the immortal children of Akatosh, they are specially attuned to the flow of time, and they feel an innate urge to dominate others that is difficult to overcome. In the mind of a dragon, being powerful and being right are the same, thus they make no distinction between speaking and fighting; battles between them are actually deadly verbal debates.

Dragon Frog[edit]

A dragon frog

Dragon Frogs are a species of amphibian which eat insects.[1] Their name comes from their small wings and ability to breath fire, stories from Hammerfell claim that they were once dragons in truth before being transformed.[2] They come in a range of colors, from the dull browns of the Common Dragon Frog,[2] to the contrasting orange and green of the Kaleidotropic Dragon Frog which serve as warning for it's poisonous skin. [3]

While many subspecies were originally found in Hammerfell and its' peninsula,[1] the trend of breeding Dragon Frogs as pets resulted in them now being found across Tamriel. Their range is as far east to the Black Marsh[4] and one breed can even be found to the far southwest, on the archipelago of Thras, where they were bred by the Sload. Though in recent times, this breed can also be found on mainland Tamriel.[5] In addition to being kept as pets, some enterprising citizens use taxidermied dragons frogs as protective pads for cooking.[6]

Dragonflies, sometimes called Dovah-Flies, are small flying insects commonly found in southern Skyrim and around bodies of water in the Azura's Coast, Bitter Coast, and West Gash regions of Vvardenfell. A number of varieties exist, such as the Blue and Orange Dartwings, white Regal Dovah-Flies, and a number of mechanical Fabricant variants from the Clockwork City. It is unknown whether the fly variants are different breeds or merely color variations. Dartwings are prized for their use in alchemy. If hand-raised from larval form, they can become devoted companion, and a common children's sport in Vvardenfell called "dodge-dovah" involves dragonflies.


A dragonling

Once believed to be a young form of the mysterious dragons, Dragonlings are actually unrelated, weaker specimens. Although they have no spell casting ability, they can still breathe fire and pose a fair challenge for the average adventurer. They can be calmed by speakers of Dragonish. The relationship, if any, of that language to the Dragon Language spoken by actual dragons is unknown.

Notable features include horned faces that range from grotesque to resembling tattooed Dunmer, deep ashen grey, blue, purple or red complexions, and voices that are deep and guttural. Dremora society is a class-based clan system that upholds values of oaths, pride, honor and loyalty, both to the clan and to the Daedric lord they serve, whom they also venerate as a god. Dremora culture appears to focus on training and preparing for battle and war.

A group of Undaunted adventurers encountered one when they accompanied Divayth Fyr into a portal that opened in his home of Tel Fyr that led to the Clockwork City section known as the Halls of Fabrication. It was a reprocessing facility where Sotha Sil broke down dwemer automatons and the AI known as the Assembly General took control of a Dwarven Colossus, which the Undaunted adventerers then had to defeat. The Morag Tong assassin known as Naryu as well as her Warden companion Boldekh encountered one in the Mundan ruins when she was chasing after the former Morag Tong guild master who went rogue.
