Saint Delyn the Wise is the Dunmeri Patron of Potters and Glassmakers. Delyn was once the head of House Indoril, as well as a skilled lawyer and author of many treatises on Tribunal law and custom.[2]

One of the cantons of Vivec was named in his honor, and, naturally, many guilds of potters and glassmakers were headquartered there. The canton also had an abbey dedicated to Delyn on the highest level of it.[3] Offerings made to Saint Delyn would grant one 'Shield of St. Delyn' which granted resistance to blight diseases.[4] The Ordinators' initiates recite a prayer to Saint Delyn before donning their gauntlets for the first time.[5]
