This article is about the goddess. For the Ansei warrior, see Makela Leki.
Leki, also known as the Saint of the Spirit Sword is the goddess of aberrant swordsmanship and divine daughter of Tall Papa. The Na-Totambu of Yokuda warred to a standstill during the mythic era to decide who would lead the charge against the Lefthanded Elves. Their swordmasters, though, were so skilled in the Best Known Cuts as to be matched evenly. Leki introduced the Ephemeral Feint; afterwards, a victor emerged and the war with the Aldmer began. She is one of the most popular gods in Hammerfell. According to legend, one of Leki's miracles resulted in the founding of a settlement in the Alik'r. Leki's Blade was established after she dueled with Rada al-Saran, a great warrior who claimed to match the gods in the way of the sword. Sai Sahan came from a long line of Redguard swordmaster nobles, and was "something more than mortal man", descending from Leki the Yokudan Sword-Saint.
