Using the divine influence of the Heart of Lorkhan to power Akulakhan, he planned to use it to drive all outlanders out of Morrowind, cast down the Tribunal, spread Corprus, and eventually take over all Tamriel.

Ancestor Moth[edit]

An ancestor moth

The Ancestor Moth is a rare indigenous gypsy-moth of Cyrodiil, and the Ancestor Glades of Tamriel, said to be kept alive by the loving spirits of the dearly-deceased, and grant wisdom and knowledge to those they come upon. The Ancestor Moth is sacred to the Imperials of Cyrodiil, specifically, the Cyro-Nords of the Nibenay. The Nibenese are known to use the ancestor silk of the gypsy-moth to craft exotic cloth, and export to others across the provinces. The singing and hymnal vocals of the ancestors are collected into a special silk-gathering ceremony, which is the ancestor silk. In the Nibenay, this silk harvest is a sacred tradition that dates back to their early history. But to the Cult of the Ancestor Moth, they are one of the same. The cult harvest the silk and undergo a magical ritual to enchant the fabric.

Ancestor moths are also used by Moth Priests in the Ritual of the Ancestor Moth in order to read an Elder Scroll. The moths maintain a connection to the ancient magic that allows the Moth Priest to decipher them. Moths emanate a soft harmonious trilling that when amplified taps into a form of primal augur. This allows the moths themselves to become a conduit for deciphering the scrolls. By having the moths close to the Moth Priest, they can utilize the conduit and share the moth's augury.

Found in:


An Auroran

Aurorans are an idealized humanoid race of Daedra in the service of Meridia, and are made from pure light. Their armor usually appears golden in tone, but since they come from the Colored Rooms, Aurorans can be of any tone. These beings have magical control over color and hue, being able to manipulate certain spectra of light into working on their behalf. They are formidable foes in combat, using some shock-based magic and are resistant to both magic and lightning. They wield powerful axes infused with lightning, and may combine in phalanx formations to channel powerful light to attack their foes. They are viewed as exhibiting pretensions beyond their worth, and are believed to lack a comprehensible hierarchy.

When an Auroran knight manifests on Tamriel, they can summon Daedric warhorses from the Colored Rooms of various hues also made from pure light, which sometimes remain in the mortal plane if the knight is banished. Aurorans choose their allegiances very carefully, usually only fighting under other servants of Meridia. Meridia's Golden Knight, Darien Gautier, shared a similar nature to Aurorans as he was made from Meridia's light. In the presence of Dark Orbs, they are blessed by Meridia with uncanny vigor, being healed, resurrected, and even prevented from being banished to the Void as long as they remain in close proximity of the orbs. Orbs of certain shades of light can control Aurorans of the respective color. Mortals who revere Meridia often honor her by adopting an armor style inspired by that of the Aurorans, crafted with the use of Auroran dust.
