Storm Atronachs are Elemental Daedra native to Levinace. Seemingly made entirely of lightning, they can be found unbound in the wild or can be conjured by those with magical aptitude to serve as guards, laborers, or otherwise obey their conjurers. Summoning of storm Atronachs is usually performed through Koron's Peremptory Summons, a spell which usually summons storm Atronachs in their conventional forms but which can be altered by conjurers to alter the minutiae of the summons (such as plane to summon from, daedra to summon, and form in which the daedra can be conjured).[1] They are a source of Void Salts, an alchemical ingredient which has varied utility. They are conventionally summoned and found in the form of bulky humanoids; however they do appear in other forms. Their summoning was first perfected by the Direnni, especially Corvus Direnni, who discovered that they could be bound into different forms by their conjurers.[2] Storm Atronachs are found in many Daedric Realms, including those of prominent princes and minor planes. While possessing some intelligence, storm Atronachs are largely an unorganized and chaotic group, with individuals being largely indistinguishable from one another.

Variants[edit]

Aside from the commonly found humanoid forms, there are many other types of storm atronach found in Nirn and Oblivion.

Galvanic Storm Steed[edit]

Levinace[edit]

Levinace is a pocket realm of Oblivion. It is the home of the Storm Atronachs.

It might be assumed that Levinace is a 'collective realm' similar to Infernace, created as an extension of its Storm Atronach inhabitants. If so, the realm would be rather mundane and uniform in appearance.

Levinace is well known to all conjurers due to the ability to summon subservient atronachs from the realm. Summoned Storm Atronachs are usually compelled to take a roughly humanoid form, often for combat purposes. Sufficiently skilled conjurers can compel atronachs from this realm to assume any number of exotic forms, such as for use as summoned mounts. Corvus Direnni is famed as a pioneer in this field.

Notes[edit]

  • The Storm Wolf is thought to be the result of an experiment by a powerful Destruction mage in which a wild canine was subjected to prolonged exposure to a Meip Glyph of Shock, and is therefore likely unrelated to storm atronachs.[4]
