This page contains a description of all the various gods and religions found in the World of Tamriel
(or the various dimensions it is connected to).
If you have any suggestions, or corrections or additions to this page, just
- Leki, Saint of the Spirit Sword
- Goddess daughter of Tall Papa, Leki is the goddess of aberrant swordsmanship. The Na-Totambu of Yokuda warred
to a standstill during the mythic era to decide who would lead the charge against the Lefthanded Elves. Their
swordmasters, though, were so skilled in the Best Known Cuts as to be matched evenly. Leki introduced the
Ephemeral Feint; afterwards, a victor emerged and the war with the Aldmer began.
- Lorkhan, The Missing God
- This Creator-Trickster-Tester deity is in every Tamrielic mythic tradition. His most popular name is the
Aldmeri 'Lorkhan', or Doom Drum. He convinced or contrived the Original Spirits to bring about the creation
of the mortal plane, upsetting the status quo-- much like his father Padomay had introduced instability into
the universe in the Beginning Place. After the world is materialized, Lorkhan is separated from his divine
center, sometimes involuntarily, and wanders the creation of the et'Ada. He and his metaphysical placement
in the 'scheme of things' is interpreted a variety of ways. In Morrowind, for example, he is a being related
to the Psijiic Endeavor, a process by which mortals are charged with transcending the gods that created them.
To the High Elves, he is the most unholy of all higher powers, as he forever broke their connection to the
spirit plane. In the legends, he is almost always an enemy of the Aldmer and, therefore, a hero of early Mankind.
