Xarxes, God of Ancestry and Secret Knowledge[edit]

Xarxes, also known as the Ageless One and the One Who Watches, is the god of secrets and hidden knowledge. He began as a scribe to Auri-El and has kept track of all Aldmeri accomplishments, large and small, since the beginning of time. He created his wife, Oghma, from his favorite moments in history. He is worshipped by Altmer and Bosmer, and is often equated with Arkay and Tu'whacca as the god of death. Hermaeus Mora claimed that the knowledge he gave to Xarxes was recorded in the Oghma Infinium and that Xarxes was a loyal servant to him. The scholar-priests of the divine scribe, secretive though they are, are said to preserve an ancient tongue long forgotten to any but their order.
