Peryite, also known by the title of the Taskmaster, is one of the Seventeen Daedric Princes that dwell within the realm of Oblivion. Although he is typically depicted as a green four-legged dragon (and often takes on the form of one), Peryite is considered one of the weakest of the Princes. His sphere of influence includes tasks, natural order (to not be confused with the perfect order of Jyggalag), and pestilence.

Hero-god of the Summerset Isles, who taught the Altmer how to naturally live another hundred years by using a shorter walking stride. He is worshipped by both the Altmer and Bretons,[1] as well as the Snow Elves.[2] He also created the Ring of Phynaster to help him survive his adventurous life.[3] He was one of the ancestor spirits of the upper castes of the Aldmer who would eventually become worshipped by their entire society.[4]
