Meridia, Lady of Infinite Energies, is an obscure Daedric Prince, and very little is known about her by mortals except that she is associated with the energies of living things. Meridia has a great and everlasting hatred for the undead and will greatly reward any who eliminate them from the world. Some Daedra Seducers are also in her service. Her realm is inhabited by the Aurorans. Mankar Camoran (incorrectly) attributed Coldharbour to her, which is the realm of Molag Bal, one of her enemies (along with Ebonarm). She was responsible for the destruction of the Ayleid city of Abagarlas. Her day of summoning is the 13th of Morningstar. It is stated that Meridia is one of the few Daedric Princes that are considered to be not wholly evil. She granted immortality to her champion, Umaril the Unfeathered, the ancient Ayleid enemy of Pelinal Whitestrake. Her Aurorans and Umaril returned during the time of the Oblivion Crisis to seek vengeance on the Divines. To the Ayleids, she represented their fourth element, light.
Meridia has gifted many different Daedric artifacts to her champions over the years, though some of these relics are associated with another Daedric Prince. The Hero of Daggerfall received the Ring of Khajiiti from her after defeating a sorcerer who betrayed her. Meridia charged the Champion of Cyrodiil with the task of destroying necromancers who were raiding tombs for corpses to raise an army of the undead, again in return for this ring. The Last Dragonborn was offered the sword Dawnbreaker in return for helping her cleanse her temple, which had become tainted by a necromancer and the shades of the corpses he desecrated.
Dawnbreaker is an artifact forged in the holy light that breaks upon Meridia's foes, burning away corruption and false life.
 Ring of Khajiiti
The Ring of Khajiiti is an ancient relic, hundreds of years older than Rajhin, the thief who made the ring famous. It was Rajhin who used the Ring's powers to make himself as invisible, silent, and quick as a breath of wind. Using the ring he became the most successful burglar in Elsweyr's history. Rajhin's eventual fate is a mystery, but according to legend, the ring rebelled against such constant use and disappeared, leaving Rajhin helpless before his enemies.
- The Tract of Merid-nunda paints her as a "wayward solar daughter" who was "cast from the heavens for consorting with illicit spectra".[oog 1] It's possible she was once one of the Magna Ge.
- The Invocation of the Pocket Guide to the Empire, First Edition, states that Meridia "contains the Plenum".
- Meridia appeared in TES II: Daggerfall, TES IV: Oblivion and TES V: Skyrim.
