Saint Roris the Martyr is the Dunmeri patron saint of Furnishers and Caravaners. Roris was captured by Argonians before the Arnesian War, and he was subsequently tortured by Argonian sorcerers for not renouncing his faith in the Tribunal. His death was the cause of the Arnesian War as the Dunmer wanted justice and vengeance.[2][3] Roris was later canonized by the Tribunal, and shrines to him could be found in Tribunal temples. He was the most recent saint until Jiub's canonization.[4] His robe is now a prized relic of the Tribunal Temple.[5]

All Temple shrine offerings grant cures of common diseases, of blight diseases, and of afflictions of poison. Offerings made to the shrine of Saint Roris additionally grant Roris' Bloom, which would fortify one's health.[6][7]

The Robe of St. Roris is the robe he wore when he was slain in argonian capture and was thus blessed with his blood.[8] In 3E 427 the ordinators failed to recover the robe from the Sixth House shrine of Assemanu, and it was recovered for the Temple by the Nerevarine.[5]



  • Concept art of Roris was created for ESO: Morrowind (presumably to modernize all the old depictions at once) and adapted into a tapestry asset, but it was not implemented as he was not a saint during the game's timeframe. Roris' gap in the lesser saints of the Temple during this period is filled by Vorys.
