Split[edit]

"Precious few have encountered the Beldama Wyresses (another name for a group of ward-sisters, or witches), but those who have speak of dark encampments under the canopy of ancient oak trees and cavorting rituals to honor Jephre, an aspect of Y'ffre, the most venerated god of the Bosmeri deities." - Emperor's Guide to Tamriel

Jephre should have his own page, since the Guide establishes him as a distinct aspect, not a mere synonym for Y'ffre. Insignificant RevisionsThreatsEvidence 17:52, 30 June 2014 (GMT)

Agreed. The Beldama Wyrd is a witch coven in High Rock, distinct from anything to do with the Valenwood. —Legoless (talk) 17:58, 7 April 2015 (GMT)
Agreed. He is also mentioned as an independent deity in Dawnguard by Knight-Paladin Gelebor, whose people certainly had little connection to the rituals of Valenwood. 98.248.13.80 19:51, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
As a counterpoint, Alinori Altmer refer to Y'ffre as Jephre, while Auridoni altmer refer to Y'ffre as Y'ffre, yet both clearly worship the same deity.

Lets not split this article, I agree with Omn here since the altmer consider them the same being. Simply note that the beldama cult interpret y'ffre and jephre to be different beings, while the altmer believe him to be the same.Zebendal (talk) 21:32, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
