Somebody put tu'whacca as god of 'nobody really cares'. wtf?-- 09:39, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

That's genuine. Look it up in Varieties of Faith..., it's in the game, odd though it is. --TheRealLurlock Talk 09:47, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

talos the son of akatosh and alessia[edit]

No, when I mean open to debate, I am inviting the editor to come and tell me why it isn't stupid and impossible, which it is. This is an unsupported random opinion and a load of bunk. It doesn't belong in a dictionary article. Maybe add it as a parenthesis under the crackpot heading. 01:47, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

The contested paragraph is:
The apellation "Dragonborn", the Nordic name Ysmir (Dragon of the North) and a reference in the Liturgy of the Re-Kindling which notes Akatosh stating to Alessia, "This shall also be a token to you of our joined blood and pledged faith. So long as you and your descendants shall wear the Amulet of Kings, then shall this dragonfire burn..." seem to indicate that Talos was the son of Saint Alessia and the god Akatosh.
To which Temple-Zero's rebuttal was:
how does a dragon empregnate an post-menopausal nedic woman on her deathbed, resulting in the birth of a Breton in high rock two thousand years later, who is no relation of alessia?
As far as I'm concerned, the original comment is sufficiently speculative that it can be left here on the talk page pending further discussion. If anyone believes that it belongs back in the article, I would strongly suggest discussing it here first. --NepheleTalk 14:07, 29 July 2008 (EDT)
Whoever wrote it did a good job drawing far-flung clues from different sources. It was easy for them to arrive at a theory like that because those details are related. I may enlist them to draw the same picture that's generally accepted here and elsewhere.Temple-Zero 14:19, 29 July 2008 (EDT)
I've got no problem with the paragraph staying off this time. The latest removal had enough information in the edit summary to be able to form a judgment and it becomes clear that the information is wrong, albeit an interesting thought! –RpehTCE 14:41, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

Why is Talos here[edit]

Why is there any entry for Talos here, since Talos is (or became) Tiber Septim, which has his own page? Ninti 19:38, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

When he passed, he was considered a god due to his many, many actions. He became a divine by the people. And his name became Talos. Shianni 23:54, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
That answer has nothing to due with the question. He wants to know why Talos is in the generic gods section even though Lore:Tiber Septim has his own page. --DKong27 Talk Cont 00:24, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Greek Talos[edit]

  • Note, the name "Talos" is taken from Greek mythology, wherein Talos was a giant bronze automaton given to Europa by Zeus. This is fitting, as the Emperor used the divine golem Numidium to conquer the Aldmeri Dominion.

I've taken this off the article. An index isn't a great place for trivia like this. Lore:Tiber Septim might be a better place to put it, but I'd prefer if it remained out of lorespace entirely. --Legoless 18:33, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
