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. He was an author of the Aldmeriad, the great origin saga of the Elves and commanded the Mer to keep records of their lives in form of their personal everscriven scrolls, known as Oghmas. 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.


Aedric god revered by the Altmer (See Z'en).[1][2]


Xero-Lyg is one of the lesser-known Magna Ge, the Star-Orphans and an Anuic ur-entity. She was one of the daughters of Magnus and sister of Merid Nunda and Mnemo-Li. Together with Merid-Nunda and Mnemo-Li, and six other Magna Ge, she belonged to the Nine Coruscations, who followed the parabolas that led away from Magnus and separated from him when he withdrew from the creation of the Aurbis. Similarly to other Magna Ge she is now synonymous with the star, which she created. According to Mankar Camoran, Xero-Lyg together with other Magna Ge as a whole were responsible for the creation of Mehrunes Dagon in "the bowels of Lyg".
