Eleidon's Ward

Eleidon's Ward is an enchanted shield especially built for Eleidon, a renowned holy knight of legend in Breton history. One of the many stories about him is that he saved a baron's daughter from sure death at the hands of a warlord, and the baron spent all his riches on the creation of the shield to show his gratitude. It grants the wielder the opportunity to heal wounds.[1]

In the Fifth Century of the First Era, in the midst of High King Wulfharth's reign in Skyrim, the revered Mordrin Hanin was entombed with Eleidon's Ward in Vvardenfell, in close proximity to Ashurnabitashpi, southwest in the cave of Ibar-Dad.[2]

Circa 3E 427, Elante of Alinor and her Mages Guild colleague Badama Andarys uncovered Mordrin Hanin's tomb within Ibar-Dad. The expedition ended in disaster when their summoning failed to conjure anything more than scamps to aid their excavation, and the Nerevarine killed Badama.[3] Elante managed to survive the encounter,[4] but the notes she left behind were used to locate the tomb deep within the depths of Ibar-Dad. There, the Nerevarine defeated the tomb's guardians, and plundered Modrin's tomb of Eledon's Ward and the rest of his valuables. [3] Later that year, the shield was sold to Torasa Aram, who put it on display in her Museum of Artifacts in Mournhold.[5]
