Tapestry of the Mythic Dawn

The Mythic Dawn was a secret cult that worshipped the Prince of Destruction, Mehrunes Dagon, and carried out an assassination plot which brought about the Oblivion Crisis and thus the end of the Third Era.[1] Emperor Uriel Septim VII and his heirs were slain as part of an attempt to lead a Daedric invasion of Tamriel.[1] The Mythic Dawn's leader was Mankar Camoran, whose son Raven and daughter Ruma were his key lieutenants; of which all three were slain in 3E 433 by the Champion of Cyrodiil.[1][2] The Mythic Dawn had many sleeper agents posing as regular townsfolk scattered throughout Tamriel, as well as a shrine to Mehrunes Dagon hidden in a cavern near Lake Arrius that served as their base.[1] After the remnants of the Mythic Dawn were killed, Mehrunes Dagon's artifact Mehrunes' Razor was broken into three pieces.[3] These pieces were hidden by several families, but were purportedly reunited in Skyrim during the Stormcloak Rebellion.[4] A museum dedicated to the Mythic Dawn opened in Dawnstar in 4E 201.[4]
