Staada is a Golden Saint commander in service to Sheogorath.

Like her fellow Aureal, Staada is linked to the amber that grows in the Root system of the Shivering Isles, which is sometimes used in rituals to summon or even bind Golden Saints. However, the usage of rarely-occurring Sheogorath-shaped amber is required to summon Staada.[1]

Circa 2E 582, Staada was summoned to Tamriel, where she guarded a lesser summoning circle deep in the Alik'r Desert southeast of Sentinel. She maintained a mysterious portal there until she was banished by a group of adventurers.[2]

In an unknown time, Sheogorath made a wager with Azura to see if a person in a century-long isolation would be able to prevent themselves from turning mad through meditation. In 3E 427, Staada returned to Tamriel when Sheogorath tasked her with invading a small island in the Sheogorad region of Vvardenfell. She was tasked with disturbing the seclusion of a priestess of Azura named Rayna Drolan. Azura charged the Nerevarine with banishing the Daedric invaders and bringing back proof of the Mad God's meddling. The Nerevarine defeated Staada and took Sheogorath's Signet Ring from her corpse as proof.[3]

In 3E 433, Staada was serving as the commander of Brellach in the Shivering Isles when the Greymarch began. The forces of Order invaded Brellach to cripple the realm's army, and Staada was taken prisoner. She was freed by Sheogorath's Champion and aided in the liberation of the stronghold. Although she perished with the other Golden Saints when the Wellspring of the Aureal was frozen by Order, they were revived when the Champion destroyed the crystals stopping the flow of chaotic creatia.[4]

Circa 4E 201, Staada came to Skyrim to protect the Shivering Isles from encroachment by a manic mage named Thoron, who had begun breaking down the barriers between that realm and Tamriel using the Sword of Jyggalag.[5] After the Last Dragonborn put an end to this threat by killing Thoron, Staada wrote to the Dragonborn to arrange a meeting.[6] She requested the item Thoron used as the focus of his rituals, although the details of this proposed exchange are unknown. Indeed, it is unknown if the Dragonborn made any trade at all with Staada, or whether they instead chose to bind and summon her using powerful Conjuration magic.[7]
