Saint Olms the Just is the Dunmeri Patron of Chandlers and Clerks and the patron saint of House Indoril.[1]. Olms was the founder of the Ordinators, and was responsible for the conceiving and articulating the fundamental principles of testing, ordeal, and repentance.[2]

When close to death, Sotha Sil placed Olms's soul into a modified black soul gem which was then brought to the Asylum Sanctorium in the Clockwork City and installed into a Clockwork Titan to make him immortal.[3] Unfortunately, the process eventually drove him to madness, which manifested as paranoia, an obsessive desire for freedom, and a persecution complex as he viewed his position as an unjust punishment or test from the Tribunal. His soul was released from the Clockwork Titan in 2E 582, and kept safe in the black soul gem whilst he rested.[4]

One of the cantons in Vivec City was named in honor of him, and a statue of him was erected on the upper outer levels.[5] Offerings made to Saint Olms would grant 'Olm's Benediction', granting one resistance to common diseases.[6]
